Romney Takes First Lead in Ohio Poll

October 29, 2012 at 2:18 pm (2012 Election, Ohio, Polls, President Obama, Rasmussen)

The momentum remains firmly in the Romney camp as election day draws ever closer.  Apparently, Obama beat Mitt so badly in those last two debates, that he still can’t stop the bleeding at the polls.

Now, for the first time, Romney has taken the lead in the Presidential race in Ohio.

Via Rasmussen (h/t Jim):

The race for Ohio’s Electoral College votes remains very close, but now Mitt Romney now has a two-point advantage.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ohio remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Based on the current projections, Romney would have to win Wisconsin if he loses Ohio in order to move into the White House.

The candidates have been locked in a very tight battle in Ohio since August. A week ago, Romney and Obama were tied in the Buckeye State with 48% support each. This is the first time Romney has taken even a modest lead in the race.

While a modest disparity, all indicators are pointing toward Romney’s momentum carrying all the way up until election day.

Mitt-mentum baby!

Romney Uses Campaign Bus to Provide Supplies to Storm Ravaged Areas, Obama Asks People to Work Phone Banks

October 29, 2012 at 12:31 pm (Food, Hurricane, Hurricane Sandy, Maryland, Phone Bank, Supplies, Weather Emergency)

A tale of two campaigns…

Via The Hill:

Mitt Romney’s campaign has sent its bus to collect and distribute donated supplies for those in the path of Hurricane Sandy, aides said Monday.

Romney was originally slated to campaign over the weekend in Virginia, but canceled plans there and joined running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio. Curt Cashour, Romney’s Virginia communications director, tweeted Monday that the campaign bus will instead be used to transport basic supplies to local storm-relief centers. 

Contrast that with this, via Fox Nation:

The Obama campaign sent out emails Sunday encouraging its volunteers to “phonebank” from Annapolis, Maryland on Monday at 5:30 PM.

The worst part of Hurricane Sandy is supposed to be hitting the region around that time.

From the email a tipster sent in:

Subject: Hey Jennifer, pitch in for Virginia this Monday

Jennifer — 

This past week, President Obama visited eight states in two days on his America Forward! tour. He hardly slept, he talked himself hoarse, and he was constantly on the move. 

He knows, just like you and I do, that what matters most in the last days of this election is what we do on the ground: The voters we talk to. The issues we discuss. Every step we take to help get people to the polls for President Obama and other Democrats.

Folks in Annapolis are getting together on Monday to make some phone calls into Virginia.

Can you make it?

What: Phone bank in Annapolis

Where: 47 Spa Road

Annapolis, MD 21401

When: Monday, October 29th

Or check out all of the phone banks near you.
