OK, if you believe the polls, Mitt Romney’s 10 points behind in Ohio. But then there are those people — THOUSANDS of people — who stood in line in the rain to get in to see Mitt this afternoon in downtown Toledo:
QUESTION: Do you believe in the polls, or do you believe in the people?
UPDATE: Here’s a look at the crowd inside the rally:
UPDATE II: Still waiting for Mitt to take the stage here. A few linkbacks while we wait:
- Spartanburg Tea Party: Do you believe the POLLS or the PEOPLE?
- The Rhetorican: How accurate are the polls in Ohio?
- Fire Andrea Mitchell: People line up to see Mitt Romney in Toledo, Ohio
- Jackie Wellfonder: Media Bias — Alive and Well
- POH Diaries: Skewed Polls, Jackasses, Cuss Words, And Reality
- The Lonely Conservative: Forget Those Bogus Polls
- Bob Belvedere’s dropping Neil Young allusions.
UPDATE III: Mitt keeps hammering on the national debt, saying Obama has added “about $6 trillion” to the debt, and later saying that, if Obama is re-elected, the U.S. national debt will reach $20 trillion by 2016.
UPDATE IV: There were times during this rally when the crowd just went wild cheering and began chanting “Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!” People who say Mitt isn’t “exciting” should attend one of these rallies. I’ll have some video in a minute.
UPDATE V: As promised, here is the video of the end of Romney’s speech. Listen to the crowd cheering at the end — excitement!
Gotta hit the road and go file my column for tomorrow’s American Spectator.
