The Obama campaign on Friday circulated a memo claiming to be well ahead of Mitt Romney among early voters in the critical battleground state of Ohio.
“Today we are ahead of where we were at this time against John McCain – and ahead of Mitt Romney,” national field director Jeremy Bird wrote. “Republicans are similarly talking up their ground game and early vote numbers, but their assertions rest on much shakier ground."
.... the Bird memo pointed to four polls that show Obama with leads of between 19 and 52 points in Ohio among early voters, and argued the demographics and geography of those who had voted early strongly favors the president.
The memo took aim at GOP claims that Republicans are making gains “across Ohio since early voting began,” and are “out-performing voter registration in Ohio's largest counties.”
Of course, both sides are going to put out memos tooting results, but Ohio remains very shaky territory for Romney.
