NEW POLL: Romney Takes the Lead in Crucial Ohio!

As someone who has done a fair share of door knocking and phone calling throughout Ohio, I couldn’t be more happy with the latest polling results from Rasmussen, which have America’s Comeback Team edging out America’s Sorry-Excuse-for-a-President Team by two points!

You can really feel the momentum here in Ohio as the crowds at Romney events swell to over-capacity and front yard across suburbia are peppered with Romney signs.

The result of this pull validate that feeling:

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.

And the internal numbers suggest even more movement toward Mitt!

Among all Ohio voters, Romney now has a 12-point lead over the president in voter trust – 53% to 41% - when it comes to the economy. Last week, he had just a seven-point advantage among voters in the state when they were asked which candidate they trusted more to deal with the economy.

Romney’s also trusted more by eight points in the areas of job creation and energy policy but leads Obama by just two when it comes to housing issues.

National security has been an area where the president has typically had an advantage over Romney this year. But, the Republican challenger now has a 52% to 42% advantage on the issue.

*It should be noted that there are other polls that currently have Obama leading in Ohio. So, as with all polls, take this one as a grain of salt — and help us keep the momentum going here in Ohio!

    Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable!

    A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate well” to people. Frankly, we struggled to understand why. So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten List to explain this “unlikablility.”

    Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

    1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

    2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

    3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

    4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern, “black preacher voice” when necessary.

    5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School…and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

    6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter -culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?

    7. Represents an America of “yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

    8. Has a family of five great sons….and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” deserves America’s scorn.

    9. Oh yes…..he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

    10. And one more point…..pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money HIMSELF… opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.

    Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans. My goodness, it’s a strange world, isn’t it?

  13. Cathy says:

    I forgot to put quotes on the above post. I’m not sure who the author is, but I thought I’d pass it along because it was so good.

  14. Ann says:

    Bless you, Nora, and all you other foot soldiers working for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan! You will help them win this election and start getting our nation on the right track again! Thank you and God Bless to ALL Romney/Ryan workers wherever you are! You are doing a wonderful service for our great country! Americans don’t have to live with this terrible economy, lack of jobs, a president who likes the perks better than the duties, and our children paying for the national debt!! GO ROMNEY AND RYAN!

  15. Annette S says:


    Here are a few more reasons Romney is so unlikable…..

    11) He closed down Bain and flew his staff to New York to set up a headquarters to search for his partner’s missing daughter. Romney and staffed searched following clues on the streets of New York until his partners teenage daughter was found.

    12) Romney paid for the milk bill in a homeless shelter for two years. He did not receive benefit of press because he chose to remain anonymous.

    13) Romney served as Governor of MA and turned around the Utah Olympics for a dollar a year.

    14) Romney reached across the aisle as Governor of MA to work with Democrats. He balanced the budget and took a state that was losing jobs to gaining jobs.

    15) Romney wanted the 9% in MA without health insurance to be covered and he succeeded.

    16) Romney wants to help the poor and middle class by growing our economy and sustaining social security, medicaid and medicare.

    17) As pastor of the Mormon Church Romney spent countless hours helping members in need without pay.

    Wow!…If this is unlikable, I think I will go with unlikable!

    Let’s elect a leader who will unite us and bring our Country back to prosperity!


  16. NINA says:

    This is bunk. Nate Silver’s 538 blog, which expertly predicted the 2008 with 99% accuracy states that Romney has precisely, as of today, a 27% change of winning OHIO and a 27.1% chance of winning the election.


  17. AfricanforRomney says:

    @Nina, take it easy. This is a brand NEW an extraordinary election.It is hard to apply ’08 or ’04 election model. It is ok to get angry, but fabricating stories is not cool. You MAY have another chance after 8 years of Prez Romney presidency by 2020. Get used to President Mitt Romney. Obama failed miserably. Obama got a chance, but couldn’t deliver his promises.

    Prez Obama didn’t close Gitmo, didn’t pull troops from Afghanistan, actually Obama is the one who’s refusing to leave and singed another 10 years security agreement to stay in Afghanistan, Obama admin transparency is a total LIE, the wallstreet, the lobbyist are well and alive under Obama. Sadly, the big banks are profitables, doing great under Obama compare to small banks. Obama drones are killing innocent kids abroad, the world is not living in harmony under Obama. Tax cuts under Obama is a total LIE. I pay more taxes, pay double for gasline, pay more for grocery bills, pay more for utilities, pay more health insurance at least 17 or 18% more just b/c the insurance company anticipating Obamafake care…..
    btw, changing his mind don’t make Gov Romney a flip floper. Gov Romney has the right to rethink some issues and change his mind.
