Oh my: Paul Ryan campaigning tomorrow in … western Pennsylvania

posted at 8:44 pm on October 19, 2012 by Allahpundit

Yesterday the bombshell Susquehanna poll, now this. Dude, is this happening?

Actually, I think this is less about putting Pennsylvania in play (for now) than it is about messing with Democrats’ heads and making a pitch to southeastern Ohio next door, but it’s a fun little gambit.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan, will return to Pennsylvania on Saturday for the first time in two months as independent polls show a narrowing race in the key Electoral College state.

The Romney campaign said Ryan will appear at a morning rally in a private hangar by Pittsburgh International Airport. Tom Smith, the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, will speak at the rally…

Pittsburgh is a strategically important area for the Republican Party. The city’s media market reaches eastern Ohio, a primary battleground state, and heavily populated southwestern Pennsylvania is an area of growing strength for Republicans. Republicans hope to sway the area’s conservative Reagan Democrats, who are turning away from Obama but have not fully embraced Romney.

A new Fox News poll of Ohio tonight has Romney within three, a gain of four points since last month — despite a sample that’s actually more Democratic this month (D+8) than it was before the gamechanging first debate (D+6). Ohio’s 2008 exit poll was also D+8 but that won’t be duplicated this time, which suggests Fox may actually be lowballing Romney’s strength. Even weirder, check out the independent column:

Romney’s not going to win indies by 24 points, I assume, but he’s also not going to lose the state if he wins them by a heavy margin. Meanwhile, in Florida

A Fox News poll of Florida likely voters shows Republican nominee Mitt Romney now tops Barack Obama in the battleground state by 48 percent to 45 percent.

The poll, released Friday, shows an eight-point reversal and a four-point increase for Romney. Last month, he trailed Obama by 44-49 percent (September 16-18, 2012)…

Consider this: Obama tops Romney by one percentage point among women now, down from a 19-point edge last month. And Romney has extended his advantage among married women to 13 points, up from a seven-point edge.

There’s your best evidence yet of how useless, and maybe even counterproductive, all the “war on women” crap was. They turned Romney into such a gargoyle over the summer that once women finally got to see him in action at the debate, the scariness seems to have melted away almost instantly. Incidentally, Romney’s also up by a point in CNN’s new poll of Florida, the seventh(!) poll in a row showing him ahead in that state. Ace’s co-blogger/poll-cruncher CAC thinks that state’s now in the bag for Mitt, but of course Obama won’t abandon it since the resulting headlines would look brutal. With Florida in Romney’s column, he stands at 235 electoral votes; if you think he’ll eke it out in Virginia and Colorado too, then bump him up to 257. That leaves him needing 13 EVs, which he can get from one or more of Michigan (16), Pennsylvania (20), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), New Hampshire (4), Iowa (6), or of course Ohio (18). Those first two will be very tough, even with Romney’s surge in PA, and he’s actually never led in a poll in the next two. Winning NH and IA won’t get him over the hump without more, so … yeah, it might be Ohio or bust. Cross those fingers.

Who do you think was more fired up to vote in 2008:

Obama voters or McCain voters?

For what do you think the OVERWHELMING majority of Obama opponents have been waiting for the last 4 years with all of the ardor and determination of a male dog trying to get at a bytch in heat?

Allah

Yes he will.

Independent in Ohio = socially moderate, fiscally conservative, protectionists.

They don’t like big government bureaucracy, but do not see teachers, fire, police as part of the govt.

What’s holding Romney back is the W/Neocon fear. I’m stunned Obama’s surrogates didn’t play that card, but I guess with his track record, he can’t.

I will also add if Romney keeps hammering the “we’ll go to war for Israel”, he’s going to lose some of these folks. That’s a Florida refrain.

If he strikes a Reagan tone – big military, crush you on contact – he’ll be accepted. Mainly because naval ships = steel = Ohio contracts.

Natural gas has increased its importance in PA dramatically in the last four years, both from the energy standpoint and because drilling is bringing in jobs – good paying jobs.

And PA people should be reminded that Ann Romney is a coal miner’s granddaughter.

RuPoll is my nickname for dumbygumbyandpokey. He is so over-the-top that he’s taken Obama poll-trolling to a whole new level. RuPaul is over-the-top, too.

Steve Angell is the self-appointed spokesman for “conservatives” in America. His “valid choice” for POTUS in the upcoming election is “neither Marxist” or “Soviet-style Communist” — voting for either will insure the “Nazification” of America.

BTW, you can try to explain to him that, while Fascism, Naziism, Marxism-Leninism, Marxism-Stalinism, Maoism, etc, are all collectivism/statism and rooted in Marx, the Nazis and the Soviets weren’t exactly close after Hitler tore up the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and invaded Russia.

I’m done.

Been there. Done that. Got the tinfoil hat and Alex Jones’ double-secret decoder ring.

It doesn’t matter. FEMA concentration camps are just around the corner if Mitt Romney becomes POTUS!!!

What is ironic, too, is that some natural gas lines that have been developed here in western PA have led to improved nearby highways. It wasn’t “stimulus funds” that made this possible but escalating economic growth through energy development.

MeatHeadinCA on October 19, 2012 at 9:43 PM

Thanks. I wish I were there. No chance for a rally like that here in Georgia. Well,it would be like that if R/R came here, but they won’t since we are not a swinging state.

Likey reality.

Likey sanity.

I’d like a ticket debate.

It would be like the other debates, but have four people on stage. The Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates would be on the stage, answering questions and engaging in rebuttals as they see fit. It would be a great way to display how well the candidates get along, and let people see if the ticket actually can sync up when put on the spot.

Romney needs McCain states plus FL, VA, NC, NH, WI, CO, IN = 271

I see a win in WI and CO. NH is iffy. If he can pull out IA then NH is irrelevant.

Of course OH makes it easier, but it can be done without OH and PA.

goflyers on October 19, 2012 at 10:13 PM

He’s already doing that, pushing for more Abrams tanks, which they make in Ohio.

wargamer6 on October 19, 2012 at 9:56 PM

Yeah. I forgot that tradeoff.

I’m hoping for Reagan Monday. That will clinch a lot of people.

MeatHeadinCA on October 19, 2012 at 9:36 PM

Man, that is amazing. How come I never see these photos unless I scroll through Twitter updates or comments here or at other rightie blogs?

(Oh, yeah, because of the media tendencies that Mitt explained so nicely last night).

Speaking of which, this is off topic but I’m still laughing about that speech. Today I was inwardly chuckling about his comment that Obama should advise Pope Benedict to blame anything that is going wrong on Pope John Paul II.

It just left me with such a happy feeling, after the years of Bush-bashing, after living through the last election and all the pomposity of the O worshippers . . . to be able to hear someone publicly push back a little. It was soothing to me to watch the video from last night . . . kind of like Chicken Soup for the Conservative Soul.

Mine was some Camus trash from fifty years ago.

He picked about the worst possible time to come. Ryan is going to be out by the Pittburgh Internatinal Airport. This just happens to be the weekend that PENNDOT is going to be working on a tunnel on the main highway going out the the airport. That means i-376 is closed, which makes it really hard to get out to the airport from Pittsburgh

So it’s safe to assume he’ll get a lower turnout then expected

It was great to finally hear someone make fun of Obama and at the same time toss some darts at his policies.

CoffeeLover on October 19, 2012 at 10:18 PM

OT:
My neighbor has been going out at night and placing Romney/Ryan signs on busy streets in the yards of houses that are vacant with For Sale signs. LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Colorado Anne on October 19, 2012 at 9:47 PM

I hope he has enough signs..

I will donate if needed..

Colorado Anne on October 19, 2012 at 10:21 PM

I’m in Wisconsin and he will lose to Tom Barrett… … Walker is going to lose. I was just at a recent Walker fundraiser and many supporters are literally begging him to actually campaign with some fire and passion, but he wants to win or lose being the “nice guy.” There’s just nothing you can do when the candidate refuses to return fire and is literally a punching bag day after day after day after day.

It’s incredibly frustrating here and things are only going to get worse. And for some reason, Obama is just loved here, and I can’t figure out why. Romney shouldn’t spend one cent since WI is not in play.
The best case scenario is that Gov Walker wins by the skin of his teeth like Prosser did against Kloppenberg.

No more hunting trips for my beloved Paul Ryan….no more running with scissors, no more going outside when it’s cold…That man is too important!

Wachu tawkin’ ’bout? Dick Cheney was known to do some mighty fine hunting here in Western PA while being a VP.

Well, we contain hydrocarbons, but we are actually mostly oxygen by mass.
