GOP Internal Polling: Romney Up in Iowa, Ohio and New Hampshire – Tied in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania

CNN Batteground Map

Republican internal polling has Mitt Romney up in Iowa, Ohio and New Hampshire and tied in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
The Daily Mail reported:

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. Early voting in Nevada has shown very heavy turnout in the Democratic stronghold of Clark County and union organisation in the state is strong.

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.

    It is such great news. But I don’t understand the Women and the Military who insist on being abuse on a daily basis by OBAMA.

    Yes, many in the military will vote for Romney but their still are a few who won’t.

    There shouldn’t be a tight race. Obama has done NOTHING, but Spend us into Debt.

    That is his legacy.

    I forgot how much fun the run up to the Vote was.

    In ’08 it was a disaster, cause McLame had given up long before election day.

    ’04 and ’00 were fantastic times.

  • i still can’t believe that anybody other then a communist could vote for obama.

  • dwd

    #1 If the military is even allowed to vote:

    Thousands of ballots unlikely to reach military voters in time

    That, plus phone/fax/email voting in areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy, voting machines registering Romney votes for Obama, lawsuits to unnecessarily extend early voting, plus all the usual fraud… the other side is going to do all it can to fix the election.

    Apparently, according to Democrats, voter IDs would discriminate against and suppress minorities (as well as their other constituencies: the dead, felons, and fake people)…. but the government can just neglect to send its own soldiers ballots, and that’s no problem at all. No disenfranchisement there, nope, nothing to see here.

    It is amazing to me that folks in Clark County, Nevada, would go to O. Currently many folks do not have disposable income to visit Las Vegas. If the unions need guests to fill the hotels, wouldn’t a vote for Romney and his policies increase tourist dollars, which in turn would increase job availability, in a very distressed marketplace…. just saying. Who would vote for another 4 years of this abomination if you need folks with disposable income……

    [America experienced an “unprecedented” fall to twelfth in the rankings, as it experienced “weakening performance across five of the Index’s eight sub-categories.”] well you have to admit it – obama did deliver change. we’re number 12!! we’re number 12!! only 130 more countries to pass on the way down to be the bottom of the barrell. something to think about tomorrow.

    From Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs:

    Infamous Noor Terror Mosque in Ohio is a …….. Polling place
    11-5-2012 11-15-01 AM

    One of my readers just received her assigned polling place (above) for tomorrow’s election: the Noor terror-linked mosque. Read the 35-page memorandum submitted to the Florida court on the mosque’s terror links. Would you want to vote there? Would you trust the results coming out of this hotbed of jihadist activity? And why expose the secular populace to dawah and proselytizing?

    This is madness.

    Atlas readers are quite familiar with the Noor mosque. This is the terror mosque that spied on and then ratted out Rifqa Bary to her parents, that she had converted out of Islam. They came out publicly against her. Noor’s admonition and warning led Rifqa’s father to threaten to kill her if she did not revert to Islam.

    There are four primary concerns related to the Noor Center:

    The leader of the mosque, Dr. Hany Saqr, was previously an imam for another area mosque at the same time the largest known Al-Qaeda cell in the U.S. since 9/11 was operating out of the mosque. Additionally, Dr. Saqr was identified in exhibits submitted by the Department of Justice in a recent terrorism finance trial in Texas as being one of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America – an international organization responsible for birthing virtually every Islamic terrorist organization in the world, including Al-Qaeda. One of his subordinates identified in those trial exhibits was identified in a FBI memorandum as providing $735,000 to Hamas while under Dr. Saqr’s direction.

    Here we go: voter id has changed THIS MUCH for this election.

    We have a lot of anectdotal evidence here that there is some shift from Democrat to independent and Repub self-identification. This, however, is a big enough sample asking the pertinent questions.

  • Mingo

    Note to bg:

    Just took a moment to re-read some of yesterdays posts…saw your comment to the last one I made on “28,000 supports…Mitt Romney in PA”

    My comment was “see what happens when you crap on our people, little O”boy”ma?

    …to which YOU responded: “i’m not one of your people, whoever they are, i’m an American,you? sorry, I don’t appreciate racist remarks, even if they’re unintended…

    Care to clarify what you are saying??

    1) My comment was directed to O-b-a-m-a, looking at that beautifully large crowd for Romney, referring to the retribution for treating WE American citizens with such disdain.
    2) I am a staunch conservative, just like many of the posters on this site…are you any different?
    …(I’m not one of your people??)
    3) What racist remark did I make to YOU, or anyone, unintended or otherwise??

  • Lewis Colby

    I don’t think most people understand ‘margin of error’. When O and R are tied with 48-48 and a 3%+/- margin of error that leads to 4 scenarios:
    1) It could be O 48 and R 45
    2) R 48 and O 45
    3) R 52 and O 45
    4) O 52 and R 45

    In other words the 3% +/- cuts BOTH ways for EACH candidate separately and irrespective of the other. The margin of error gives the pollster plenty of wiggle room to be ‘correct’.

    #24 Mad Hatter & now #35 TeachX3: I feel the EXACT same way! I have not a DOUBT in my mind that Mitt Romney will win – and he will win by enough of a margin (300+ electoral votes) that there won’t be a torturous dragging on like Bush/Gore.

    NOW I’m going to focus on the SENATE. We’ve GOT to have a majority there!

    It’s starting to catch on. That’s good to see. BTW , if there are any eeyores here could I respectfully ask that you go somewhere else? Hot Air would love you guys.

  • Monkey Wrench

    Internal polling? The other name for that is spin. If you believe in polls, then Obama has a slight lead. It’s still possible for Romney to win but he will need a last minute surge.

    Also, the national number is interesting, but the election is decided by electorial college votes. Remember that Gore got half a million more votes than Bush.

  • Monkey Wrench

    I just looked at Rasmussen’s polling. Their electorial college projections have Obama with 237 and Romney with 206. The tossup states are Colorado(9), Florida(29), Iowa(6), Nevada(6), New Hampshire(4), Ohio(18), Virginia(13), and Wisconsin(10).

  • Heeeeeyyyyyyyyy! Someone explain why WI is a toss up?? Walker won the governorship then he took on the unions, soros minions etc in a recall election. How in the hell is this state not a Romney state?

    This makes no sense that its toss up or as some have suggested leaning toward 0bama.

  • SM-WI

    We have to give Barry credit for “uniting” Christians to vote him out: Catholics, Mormons, Evangelicals. That’s a miracle right there!

  • SM-WI

    #44—Here in Wisconsin, my 86 year old mother in law, life long Dem, is voting Romney/Ryan! But, we have relatives and acquaintances that can’t quite bring themselves to vote Repub….some say they’re not voting.

  • Hugh

    44-I think it’s a tossup here. The reason some polls have Hussein ahead are because of an outrageous Marquette poll,that gabve him an absurd 8 pt lead. if he was up 8,do you think he would have made 3 trips to the state the last 5 days?

    Republicans See Early Vote Surge Trending for Romney

    [The Associated Press reports that thousands of people waited for
    hours in long lines during the last weekend of early voting in Ohio.

    At some sites Sunday, lines snaked for several city blocks and it took
    hours to cast a ballot. In Cleveland, more than 2,500 people braved
    the cold in a line that stretched two blocks on Sunday afternoon.

    In Akron, voters waited an average of two hours to vote Sunday. In
    Columbus, 15,000 people waited in line for as long as two hours from
    Friday through Sunday to cast early ballots in a state that could decide
    the presidential election.

    In Cincinnati, several thousand voters waited for as
    long as four hours in sometimes-rainy chilly weather.

    About 1.6 million people have voted early in Ohio.

    In Indiana, residents have only a few more hours to cast early ballots
    for this year’s hotly contested presidential, Senate, governor’s and
    other races.

    Voters can cast early in-person ballots for Tuesday’s election until noon
    Monday at county courthouses and other locations around the state.

    In Indianapolis, the number of residents who’ve cast early ballots so far
    is down from 2008. But Marion County Clerk’s office spokeswoman Angie
    Nussmeyer tells The Indianapolis Star that’s likely due to this year’s lack
    of satellite voting centers in Indianapolis, not reduced voter interest.

    The Evansville Courier & Press reports that early voting in southwestern
    Indiana’s Vanderburgh County appears poised to eclipse the number of
    early ballots cast in 2008.]

    •1900 – William McKinley over William Jennings Bryan
