AP: Romney camp weighing whether to shift money from NC to bluish states like WI, MI, PA

posted at 4:36 pm on October 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

Even more encouraging than the new Gallup numbers, I think, and circumstantial evidence that maybe Major Garrett was right yesterday about Team O preparing to pull back from some swing states. The catch with Gallup’s tracker is that it’s the only national pollster showing anything close to a seven-point lead right now; doesn’t mean they’re wrong, but allegedly even GOP pollsters aren’t picking up a lead like that in their internal numbers. To get a better sense of Romney’s surge, says election guru Sean Trende, follow the (campaign) money: “Simply put, if Romney were up 7, he’d be advertising in PA, MI, OR, CT and wouldn’t spend a dime in FL.”

Let’s follow the money, then. Don’t look now, but according to the AP, Team Mitt’s thinking of advertising in PA and MI:

At the same time, the GOP presidential nominee’s advisers and the Republican National Committee are looking to give Romney more routes to reaching the 270 Electoral College votes needed for victory. They are weighing whether to shift resources from North Carolina, where Republicans express confidence of winning, into states long considered safe territory for President Barack Obama, including Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The evolving strategy comes as both candidates work to capitalize on their second debate-stage meeting, a Tuesday night face off in which Romney emphasized his bipartisan credentials as well as his efforts to hire women while Massachusetts governor, and declared, “I’m not looking to cut taxes for wealthy people.”

CNN is reporting just as I’m writing this that Team Mitt is indeed moving some (but not all) of its assets out of NC. RCP moved North Carolina from toss-up to “leans Republican” today, which put Romney ahead in the projected electoral vote count for the first time in the campaign. Mitt 206, Obama 201, with 29 EVs from Florida still in the toss-up column but hopefully ready to move soon. If that state starts to lean too, Romney will have 235 somewhat bankable votes with nine true toss-up states left to deliver him the remaining 35. The likeliest path is Ohio plus Virginia plus any other state, but if he really is playing to win in Michigan and Pennsylvania and not just forcing Obama to spend money there to defend those states, he could get 36 EVs just between those two. I’ve always thought Romney could win those states only as gravy, if a big red wave washes over the map and carries all of the more competitive swing states with it first, but who knows what GOP pollsters are seeing in their numbers right now. Romney’s debate demolition of Obama was a true game-changer; only people with deep data know what the game really looks like at this point.

A Republican source tells Jim Geraghty that he is indeed seeing signs of Team O retreating from North Carolina but not from Florida — or at least not yet. The margin there’s still too close, and there are too many EVs at stake, to pull back before the last debate. But if Romney’s poll surge continues, it’ll be time for hard decisions by Team Hopenchange next week. Their dilemma: Is it worth abandoning a big state that they really don’t need to win in order to allocate resources more efficiently, or would conceding Florida be too damaging spin-wise and depressing to their base to risk it? Binder jokes can keep liberals running on fumes until the next debate, but if Florida starts to wobble, the tone next week will shift. A lot.

Here’s Soledad O’Brien broadcasting from another dimension where Obama leads Romney by 15 points in Virginia. Oh — forgot to mention: Obama’s job approval is four points underwater nationally. According to … the Daily Kos’s pollster.

Morris does a good job of explaining the logic of this strategy. In the big swing states, Democrats have focused all their efforts on carpeting the airwaves with negative ads, which fixes a ceiling of negative ratings for Romney to battle uphill against.

However, the Dems have assumed the next tier of swing states are firmly in their column. Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey have not been barraged with negative ads, and Romney can get a lot of return on his campaign investment there.

Leave it to the eSTAB-lishment Republicans to get cocky & try to go head to head with Obama in Blue States! You better make sure the infrastructure for election day is ready to drive people to the polls or you are hurting yourselves.
It better be a real hard hit & strong media buys or you will be wasting time!
You better start fighting the media or, just Cowley did, your message will be derailed again and all that money will be wasted! In case you didn’t recognize the ploy pulled on Romney, 65Million people watched Cowley back up Obama’s Lie, only a few million political wonks, saw the admission of guilt or her statement about Mitt being right!

It’s possible they muffed the numbers, or weren’t ready to post the full data yet. I don’t think there’s anything sinister about it.

I hope Lee Iacocca’s endorsement will help Romney in the Midwest.

GOPRanknFile on October 18, 2012 at 4:52 PM

I disagree with Sean Trende. Staying in a safe state, and buying ads, gives people there the impression that every vote counts, and they need to get out to vote.

And think of the ramifications. If Romney pulls out of FL and VA, enough republicans might stay home where Obama might steal one of the states with a great GOTV effort and or cheating. And that might also effect the Senate races (2 races that should be very close). By staying in, Republicans will not let up, and that will ensure victory and the turn-out will probably push Allan and Mack over the top.

As for expanding the battlefield, its a clear sign that Romney is confident. However, he should have done it sooner. Even if he is bluffing, and doesn’t think he can win in WI, MI and PA, just going up on the air makes Obama have to spend there too.And like I have said for weeks, if you force Obama to shore up states like PA and MI, he might be forced to pull out of Nevada, Iowa or NH.

The real war on women? Because of Obama’s asinine economic policies, no employers are looking at ANY binders of resumes, because there is no work.

That is how I’d answer this nonsense.

As to Michigan and PA, have the Super Pacs accelerate first, then RR, move the needle, force Obama to react, and then DRAIN OBAMA DRY. Do it. Ohio might get stolen anyway. Need contingency, not just Wisconsin.

Conservatives need to set up a vote trading system – where libertarians in like PA or OH will vote for Romney and you will vote for Gary Johnson instead. That way, your (near meaningless) vote goes to pump up libertarians, while Romney gets a vote where it can really help.

lorien1973 on October 18, 2012 at 4:56 PM

Local Philly talk radio show this morning was BEGGING Team Romney to come in to PA. People calling in asking for ads and visits to suburbs. Local GOP chairmen also called in and said the ground game is going fantastic, signs are running out and county committees are buying extra due to high demand, volunteers are being turned away. Enthusiasm FOR Romney/Ryan is huge around here.

Saw a tweet from a Pittsburgh reporter this AM hinting that Romney will be up on TV there soon. Smart to start there and see how polls move. Philly TV is hugely expensive. I still would love to see a rally or two here. The one Mitt did a few weeks ago was great and got huge free airtime on local TV.

With hard work and a little luck, Mitt can get PA (speaking as a 45 year PA resident). As a former 6 year resident of Ohio, I think Ohio is doable to. Immediate family putting in 3 for Romney in PA, 1 in OH. Turnout is going to have a huge impact.

milcus on October 18, 2012 at 4:53 PM

If you have a state more or less in the bag, the marginal value of each political dollar is going to be near zero. Running up the margins is going to do nothing but boost morale.

But if Romney continues this momentum through the next week, and starts pushing deep into Obama territory (MI, OR, CT, and NJ) that’s going to absolutely destroy the morale of the left. I know that will happen, because that’s exactly what happened to us four years ago.

And then, as now, the solution was to resort to inflating picayune “gaffes” as Major Campaign Issues. Lipstick on a pig, anyone? It’s a sure sign of defeat.
