Romney to visit Ohio — and Pennsylvania — tomorrow

posted at 4:02 pm on November 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

I like it, especially the Pennsylvania visit. Even if he thinks PA’s a longshot, one more appearance can’t hurt and delivering an E-Day pep talk to Republicans in a big blue state that’s suddenly in play is a sweet morale booster for GOPers nationally. If anything, I wish he had time to squeeze in a visit to Chicago. Message: Not an inch will be conceded, even in the heart of Obamaland. One hundred percent Republican turnout or bust, no matter how long the odds are in a city or state. That’s the message of the Pennsylvania event, I think — make the effort tomorrow, however bluish-purple your particular playing field might be. Paul Ryan’s visit to Nevada, which is probably the safest of the toss-up states for O, is all about that too.

Aides said Mr. Romney would visit campaign offices in Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Until now, his staff had said that a rally in New Hampshire Monday night would be his last event of the campaign.

The move reflects just how close the contest remains — Mr. Romney is determined to squeeze as much time in swing states as possible before polls close.

Politicking on Election Day, while not entirely unusual, is tricky because it risks siphoning off resources and manpower in crucial states from traditional get-out-the-vote efforts.

My hunch is that an in-state appearance by the candidate on election day does more to goose local turnout than the GOTV manpower lost during the candidate’s visit would have. Didn’t hurt Obama or Bush when they tried it:

Another good point:

Via Mediaite, here’s Andrea Mitchell pondering the significance of Pennsylvania possibly being in play. Dan McLaughlin noted earlier on Twitter that Rasmussen’s national polling of party affiliation now shows the biggest Republican advantage since at least 2004: 39.1R/33.3D/27.5 Other. In modern times, the GOP has never had a turnout advantage in a presidential election; the closest they came was drawing even with Democrats at 37 percent in 2004. If this election ends up R+1 or better, then, given Romney’s persistent lead with independents, I’m thinking we’ll all be long since drunk on champagne tomorrow night by the time Pennsylvania finally comes in. Fingers crossed.

Pittsburgh is a nice touch.

GOPers, if you believe Robert Costa (and you damn well should), need to win Western PA and the Philly suburbs – big – to have a chance at winning the state.

Romney in Bucks County was a great start. Tomorrow’s Pittsburgh rally might be enough to seal it.

I would like OH to have a larger spread, but if has to win it by 1, so be it. If he does that, PA and WI would be just gravy. I assume CO is in the bag, and that plus OH means President Romney. He wouldn’t need NH, IA, or NV (that’s if FL, VA, and NC are secure, that is).

I wish O-I-H-O wasn’t so close, but a win would be all that matters(assuming it’s not so tight that Obama can try to cheat his way to victory). I figured NV was the one swing state Romney didn’t have much of a shot at. Not sure why given the horrible economy there and Obama’s constant public trashing of Vegas. But if he gets WI, IA, and NH(and I assume CO), then O-I-H-O wouldn’t even be necessary.

faraway on November 5, 2012 at 4:15 PM

Of all people, Obama would know if he is in trouble. When it comes to national presidential races, he is a finely tuned political instrument: He read the field perfectly in 2008. He would know if he’s losing now, and it would explain his joylessness on the stump. He is out there doing what he has to to fight the fight. But he’s still trying to fire up the base when he ought to be wooing the center and speaking their calm centrist talk. His crowds haven’t been big. His people have struggled to fill various venues. This must hurt the president after the trememdous, stupendous crowds of ’08. “Voting’s the best revenge”—revenge against who, and for what? This is not a man who feels himself on the verge of a grand victory. His campaign doesn’t seem president-sized. It is small and sad and lost, driven by formidable will and zero joy.

I suspect both Romney and Obama have a sense of what’s coming, and it’s part of why Romney looks so peaceful and Obama so roiled.
Romney ends most rallies with his story of the Colorado scout troop that in 1986 had an American flag put in the space shuttle Challenger, saw the Challenger blow up as they watched on TV, and then found, through the persistence of their scoutmaster, that the flag had survived the explosion. It was returned to them by NASA officials. When Romney, afterward, was shown the flag, he touched it, and an electric jolt went up his arm. It’s a nice story. He doesn’t make its meaning fully clear. But maybe he means it as a metaphor for America: It can go through a terrible time, a catastrophe, as it has economically the past five years, and still emerge whole, intact, enduring.

Maybe that’s what the coming Romney moment is about: independents, conservatives, Republicans, even some Democrats, thinking: We can turn it around, we can work together, we can right this thing, and he can help.

The party leadership is totally stuck on STUPID.

Had they embraced the Tea Party instead of shunning them. We would be picking up a dozen or more seats and would definitely take the Senate. We would be wining the Presidency by at least five points. We would outperform the polls just like in 2010.

But no we run the most liberal man in the Republican Party. A man that ran on the platform “That Republican Registration is just a technicality”. I will be more liberal than my opponent why I am running to do more for Planned Parenthood, LGBT, Abortion Rights. This platform in the only race he won. But he did run on it and lose before.

Pure stupidity.

Everywhere I tune there are big name Republicans very concerned we will lose this election.

Obama is a complete joke. A member of Al Qaeda most likely. Definitely a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Al Qaeda’s parent organization. To be even with him is simply inexcusable.

Like Wisconsin Scott Walker the Tea Party favorite was 20 points ahead of Mitt Romney. He easily won the recall. But Romney was 15 points behind Obama.

When Mitt loses it is time for the Tea Party to take over the GOP.

BTW, I’ve been hoping that in the days following his win, Romney announces that he’s calling off the inauguration balls to save the taxpayers some money. The ones for Obama in 2009 cost over 150 mil.

Do the inauguration itself obviously. You want a million-plus Americans to have the opportunity to attend that. But spare us the visual of a bunch of politicians partying it up when the economy is still in the dumps(not to mention no President has the ability to dance).

I agree that it’s a smart GOTV strategy. Related to that, I think Romney is trying to drag a handful of GOP Senate candidates over the finish line with him. He knows he needs a GOP Senate to get anything done. So look at the states we’re talking about: Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, etc. All states where we would love to capture a Senate seat. So yeah, it’s GOTV but I also think that it’s a sign of confidence on Romney’s part.

The Tea Party has taken over the GOP, dopey.

We have the most conservative slate of Senate candidates in a very long time. (I would say, “and look where that’s getting us,” but I won’t.) Romney’s positions match those of the GOP’s conservative wing almost entirely, and he’s running a conservative campaign. Obama has the advantage of incumbency and a lapdog media. And Romney knocked Obama on his ass in that first debate, doing a better job than any Gingrich or Santorum could muster against him.

You don’t want conservatism, you want chaos. Take your intellectual dishonesty and shove it up the chimney.

She’s always a media hack. How I’ll laugh at them tomorrow night.

Feel the force, Luke, and embrace all that Schadenfreude.

It’s shootin’ hoops for Dear Leader tomorrow…

Thanks, that’s where I saw it earlier. Gah……. like all of the last few years.

Anyway, that may not happen now that his team knows that Romney will be working (gasp!) till the end.

Good job, Mitt.

Way way too late for that. The RNC only had four years to BBQ the Donk’s and are still fighting over which rub to put on the steaks.

Aides said Mr. Romney would visit campaign offices in Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Until now, his staff had said that a rally in New Hampshire Monday night would be his last event of the campaign.

It’s interesting that Romney is visiting CAMPAIGN OFFICES

Granted. And while we may not approach the 2010 level of enthusiasm, we will certainly exceed that of 2008, while the Dems will likely be somewhat less enthused.

Physics Geek on November 5, 2012 at 4:33 PM

Um… Geek? You need to get out more. I’ve not seen any indications that enthusiasm is any lower than 2010. I believe it’s higher. It might be “The Big Bang” of Republican turnout.
