A newly-released poll from Rasmussen Reports shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama by four points in my home state, and a critical election state, of Colorado, with Romney reaching 50 percent here for the first time.
I realize it’s a truism at this point, but this election remains all about Ohio, as Romney is likely to do well enough in enough of the other swing states to win the presidency if he can take the Buckeye State. The RealClearPolitics average in Ohio shows Obama with a small but stubborn lead.
Although I believe that enthusiasm is with Romney, it is also clear that unions and the Obama campaign have a massive and well-organized ground game aimed to get out the vote in these key states. The GOP operation is far better than it was in 2008, but especially given the left’s willingness to do anything and everything to win, Romney needs to find a way to win Ohio by a larger margin than unions can close through actual GOTV or through fraud.
