Internal polls: Romney up one in OH, two in IA, three in NH, tied in PA and WI

posted at 5:27 pm on November 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

The skeptical view of leaking these is that it smacks of what desperate campaigns do when they know they’re losing. Remember Tom Barrett? He wanted the world to believe, contra nearly all of the independent polling, that he and Scott Walker were dead even two weeks out from the recall election this summer. That made perfect sense in his case: He was behind, everyone knew it, and he needed a morale booster to keep his base from giving up. How is that analogous to Romney’s situation? Is there any Republican anywhere who’s given up and thinks O’s slight lead in Ohio in the independent polls is immune to huge GOP turnout tomorrow? The final Gallup and Rasmussen national tracking polls each have Romney ahead by a point, a fact Drudge is trumpeting as I write this. There are no Romney voters at this point who need rosy internal polls to nudge them out the door tomorrow.

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.

Yeah, at this point I’m treating Nevada for O the way I’m treating North Carolina for Mitt — technically still in play, but easily the hardest “get” for the opposition. The good news is, there are few scenarios realistically in which the election would come down to Nevada. One is if O wins the big four in the Rust Belt and midwest — Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin — and needs one more state to push him over the line. If that happens, though, then he’ll probably be riding enough of a wave that he can grab one of the more competitive battleground states — Colorado, New Hampshire, or Iowa — to give him the election. Ditto for Mitt: If he wins Colorado, then he can get to 270 either with Ohio alone or with Wisconsin plus Iowa or New Hampshire, both of which look like genuine toss-ups vis-a-vis Nevada. The only way that Nevada is decisive is if there’s some truly odd scramble among the battleground states where, say, Romney wins Ohio but loses Colorado and Wisconsin and Iowa and New Hampshire. Not worth worrying about, especially if Romney’s internal polls are accurate. But just in case, our loyal readers in Nevada will be turning out tomorrow, right? No excuses, especially with Dean Heller in a tight race. Even if Nevada slips away from Romney, it might be the difference in whether he gets to work with a Republican or Democratic Senate.

Exit question: Seriously, are we going to know who won this election tomorrow night? Quote:

[I]n the wee hours Wednesday morning, [Ohio] counties will begin their count of the provisional ballots. These are votes that have been challenged for a wide variety of legitimate reasons. They include: Ohioans who are not registered; registered voters who moved but failed to update their addresses; people who showed up at the right polling place but were directed to the wrong precinct; voters who did not bring proper identification to the polls; and those who requested an absentee ballot but decided to vote in person…

The rough Republican rule of thumb is that Romney requires a statewide lead of, at least, 50,000 votes to survive the provisional ballot phase of the Ohio long count. The requisite election night margin for Romney may, in fact, need to be higher. It all depends on the number of provisional ballots plus valid absentee ballots (postmarked Monday or earlier), which are still in the mail. And despite the best efforts of the secretary of state’s office to release an accurate count of disputed and missing ballots Wednesday morning, the final numbers will probably trickle in from Ohio’s 88 counties over the following few days.

Accepted provisional ballots won’t be added to the state’s vote totals until November 17-21. Legal challenges could drag things out weeks longer, a la Florida 2000. Consider this another motivator for 100 percent Republican turnout tomorrow: If we can’t stop Ohio from being very, very close, maybe we can stop it from mattering at all.

For weeks before the presidential election, the gurus of public opinion polling were nearly unanimous in their findings. In survey after survey, they agreed that the coming choice between President Jimmy Carter and Challenger Ronald Reagan was “too close to call.” A few points at most, they said, separated the two major contenders.

But when the votes were counted, the former California Governor had defeated Carter by a margin of 51% to 41% in the popular vote—a rout for a U.S. presidential race. In the electoral college, the Reagan victory was a 10-to-l avalanche that left the President holding only six states and the District of Columbia.

Yes everyone do yourselves a favor and tune out the MSM and University polls. Stick wih Rasmussen and Gallup and these internals.

My guess was using my BS in Stats that Romney was up by 1 looking at Rasmussen’s numbers and this internal agrees.

I repeat, you can assume Romney is up by 1 and the turnout will make that number hold unless Obama has an ace up his sleeve.

We just need a good turnout to win.

flstc on November 5, 2012 at 5:47 PM

If we take PA, which I continue to contend is MORE likely to go our way then OH. OH will be muted.

Here are some reasons why I think PA will go to Romney:

1) Unemployment is 8.2% in PA
2) EPA’s war on coal
3) Obama’s comments on reinstating the AW ban during debate #2. NRA has been running wall to wall ads with that in PA
4) Obama’s war on the Catholic Church
5) Polls show a dead heat with Obama at 48%. Incumbent at 48% with a few days to election will certainly lose.

Here are some reasons why I think OH will go to Obama:

1) Unemployment in OH is 6.9% (Below national average)
2) Bailout is still very popular there.
3) OH has been trending LEFT.
4) OH loves losers (Browns, Bengals, Indians, Cavaliers)
5) Obama has carpet bombed the state for over 7 months with Romney=Hitler ads
6) Kasich remains deeply unpopular. (26% approval)
7) Unions are riding a victory in defeating Kasich’s union reform bill.

With that said Romney could still win OH, but it will be by a margin of 25,000 votes or so.

I think Romney will win the election. And PA will go RED.

After removing the 3% of undecided voters from the results and allocating their support proportionally to the two major candidates, Gallup’s final allocated estimate of the race is 50% for Romney and 49% for Obama.

Someone should run a Monte Carlo simulation of the Gallup, Rasmussen, MonMouth & ARG national polls. (ABC/WaPo and CNN exluded due to poor sampling size/weight)

I think Romney’s chances of winning the popular vote right now is roughly 60%.

Here’s an idea. Encourage your friends and family to take a picture of their kids into the voting booth. Make sure they know that each of them owes and will be expected to pay over $218K thanks to the policies of the rat-eared wonder. It makes voting decisions much easier even if you don’t particularly like the other candidate.

If we can’t stop Ohio from being very, very close, maybe we can stop it from mattering at all.

The chance of NY going RED is NEGATIVE 50%, so they can vote 10 times each for all I care. It won’t make an iota of difference.

Raquel Pinkbullet on November 5, 2012 at 5:51 PM

Exaclty – might effect a congresscritter race or two, but I’m sure there will be re-counts if things change drastically from what is expected.

Aye. And if it were he, he’d consume obamabots with fireballs from his eyes and lightning bolts from his arse.

Lanceman on November 5, 2012 at 5:49 PM

He IS Mitt Romney! And he sees a whole army of his countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You’ve come to vote as free men… and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you vote?

Ya’ll need to head over to twitchy for pic of HUGE Romney rally in VA. Had to change locations to one that held 10000. Still turned people away.

Makes me misty.

bluealice on November 5, 2012 at 5:56 PM

This game is over… This has all been just hype since the first debate..

Al Hall on November 5, 2012 at 5:50 PM

Not since the first debate but, clearly, what we see now from the rat-eared wonder is bluster. Guaranteed he was not planning on being in the cold at Madison WI whoring for votes and having to bring an entourage along just to get decent turnout. And the most delicious part of all this- he can’t stand Romney. Each and every one of these dismal rallies has to be thinking that he can’t believe he is going to lose to Mitt Romney.

You remind me of a good point about Ohio. Obama has always assumed the Presidency for Republican goes through Ohio and has it looks like contaminated the state pretty bad.

It won’t surprise me if Ohio falls out of order with Wisconsin or PA falling instead where Obama never expected to be in 2012.

Obama’s firewall might be weakest at one of the surrounding states not Ohio. Just specualtion but it increase your odds if you can add probabilities of say Wisconsin or Ohio or Pennsyslvania. You would combine those to get Mitt’s chances of winning.

Hopefully, Romney’s coattails are enough to drag Conrad Mack over Senatr Beyill Nelson.

Lanceman on November 5, 2012 at 5:43 PM

It’s actually “Cornelius” IIRC, and I hope so too. Same for Allen, Mandel, Mourdock, and Akin.

And I especially hope Tommy Thommpson is declaring victory in a little over 24 hours.
