When last we heard from Neil Newhouse, the Romney pollster was modestly explaining that the GOP’s campaign wasn’t going to be dictated by fact-checkers.
Now that Romney is down in the most recent national polls, it seems Newhouse won’t let it be dictated by reality, either. He has some soothing words for anxious Republicans:
Relax — the Mittster’s election is a sure thing. There is no way the economy won’t drag down President Obama.
That’s the gist of a memo he put out today. Here’s the first and last pargraphs:
“Don’t get too worked up about the latest polling. While some voters will feel a bit of a sugar-high from the conventions, the basic structure of the race has not changed significantly. The reality of the Obama economy will reassert itself as the ultimate downfall of the Obama Presidency, and Mitt Romney will win this race.
“. . .Mitt Romney will be the next President. The outcome of this race will ultimately be determined in favor of Governor Romney because he has the better leadership skills, the better record, and the better vision for where he wants to take the country. These advantages are being fueled by the commitment and determination of volunteers and voters to change direction and move our country on a path toward economic growth and job creation. In short, the combination of having the superior candidate, being in a margin-of-error race with an incumbent President, having a cash advantage, and having an unprecedented grassroots effort and a winning message on the economy ensure that Americans will make a change in leadership in Washington on November 6.”
Heck, why bother to have the election?
