Romney Internals Show Him Up In OH, NH, IA; Tied In WI, PA

Romney just announced that he will be making stops tomorrow — Election Day! — in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The campaign obviously see things as close (and close enough) and are leaving nothing to chance. According to this report of Team Romney’s internal polling, the election is a knife-edge that could tip either way.

As far as these internals go, these seem very realistic:

Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source.

Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania. …

The Romney campaign believes that both Florida, Virginia and North Carolina – all of which Obama won in 2008 – are ‘done’ for the Democratic incumbent, as one senior adviser put it.

An important point here is that the reporter, Toby Harnden, actually saw the actual internal polls, including that negative ones that show Nevada gone. It could all be a ruse, but there’s nothing I’m seeing in those numbers that looks in any way outlandish.
