Romney campaign internal polling: Republican nominee up ONE POINT in OH and TIED in PA and WI
UK Daily Mail Online ^ | Nov. 5, 2012 | Toby Harnden

Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source. Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and - most startlingly - Pennsylvania. Internal poll show Romney trailing in Nevada, reflected in a consensus among senior advisers that Obama will probably win the state. Romney is to campaign in Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on election day, reflecting the tightness of the race in Ohio and the tantalising prospect of success in Pennsylvania, which has not gone Republican in a presidential campaign for 24 years.

Nearly all public polling put Obama ahead in Ohio by whisker at least. The RealClearPolitics average of polls there gives the president a 2.8 per cent advantage. But the Romney campaign insists that pollsters have their models wrong and are overestimating Democratic turnout and underestimating Republican enthusiasm.

If the Romney campaign's internal numbers are correct - and nearly all independent pollsters have come up with a picture much more favourable for Obama - then the former Massachusetts governor will almost certainly be elected 45th U.S. President.

The most dramatic shift in the Romney campaign's internal polling has been in Wisconsin, which has moved from being eight points down to pulling level. President Barack Obama is campaigning in the state on the eve of election day.

Despite the Obama campaign's insistence that Romney's late decision to contest Pennsylvania is an act of 'desperation', former President Bill Clinton - Obama's most valuable ally on the stump - is holding four eve-of-election events there.

Yup....internal polls are almost never released for any reason. The Romney people are letting some info out, but I doubt that it’s their internal numbers.

Here's a link to another thread on this topic. One Freeper says that Toby Harnden is a Romney insider. There are several hypotheses as to why they would leak this info in this thread:

I seriously doubt that any campaign will release their internals.

“Psychological warfare.”

I agree. It also helps in getting out your vote knowing that it can make a difference.
