Most of you probably have family members and friends that are expressing worry, even pessimism about Governor Romney’s chances to beat Mr. Obama in November. I do. The polls from the battleground states in the last couple of weeks have turned negative, etc. I just smile and tell them, you are wrong. He is going to win!
I’m not going to get into a big explanation of the unreliability of the many polls; suffice to say they are historically unreliable and wrong. President Reagan used to say he did not pay attention to the polls. He stayed on message and he did what he knew was the right thing. Governor Romney is doing the very same thing.
The only polls that matter are those maintained by professional pollsters in the Romney and Obama camps. They know. NBC published an article yesterday, “Romney: ‘We’re going to win Pennsylvania'”
“You know, I’ve got a little secret here,” Romney told a rally crowd of a few hundred supporters. “That is that the Obama campaign thinks Pennsylvania is in their pocket — they don’t need to worry about it. And you’re right, and they’re wrong.
“We’re going to win Pennsylvania. We are going to take the White House.”
At the fundraiser earlier this morning in Philadelphia, Romney was more circumspect about his chances, telling donors it would “really shock people” if, on Nov. 6th, Pennsylvania seemed to be going his way. He first predicted “it could happen” before closing with an outright prediction: “I’m going to win Pennsylvania.”
This is huge news! When I woke up this morning and saw this, I got even more excited. This is huge news!
I am guessing that most of you that frequent MRC are well-read, well-informed, optimistic Romney supporters. If so, we need to get our pessimistic friends off the dime and get their heads in the game. It is game on and Governor Romney is in this game to win. It is not unusual for Governor Romney’s days to begin at 5:00 a.m. and to end at 2:00 a.m. Are we matching his work ethic, enthusiasm, energy, determination, and persistence? He is our file leader; he cannot win this thing alone. All of us need to step it up for him. And as Donald Sutherland shouted in the film Kelly’s Heroes as he led a tank column, “No negative vibes boys! No negative vibes!”
