Team Romney Thinking on Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin and New Hampshire

Robert Costa of National Review is as dialed in as any reporter out there when it comes to the Romney inner thoughts.  Here is his dispatch as of 5:09pm:

Romney officials tell me that they’re seeing strong early numbers in Colorado, especially in Adams County. “We will probably win in Adams, which often leans Democrat,” an adviser says. “We’re also running up big margins in the conservative areas, such as Archuleta and Moffat counties.”

Iowa is also looking good. “The northwest part of the state, where Steve King is congressman, is turning out at historic levels,” the adviser says. “The suburban turnout in Ankeny and Clive is quite high.”

The Romney team is also optimistic about Wisconsin and New Hampshire due to reports of high turnout in GOP towns. “We’re seeing big turnout in McCain’s Ohio counties, too,” the adviser says. “In Pennsylvania, the turnout in upper Bucks County, which is a strong Republican area, is great.”

    Indiana county everybody has been citing as a bellweather isn ow tied 48-48. Who is this Andrew Hornung guy running for senate? He is pulling 6% of the vote and may save Mourdoch’s bacon.

      I want to slap my gender. Most women are such airheads. It’s the main reason the majority of women are horrible drivers, they’re just “la la la la…..”

    The exits are wrong. Rinse and repeat: the exits are wrong. Give this another 90 minutes, please. Of course the exits are going to say D+3 when they leave out 19 R states, correct? Just relax and watch.

      The exits are junk and so is Drudge between 4 pm and 8 pm election night. Noise and garbage. The media and TV lies. Just be patient.

    I hope that fake Indian in Mass – Elizabeth Warren loses. The data and exit polls are a waste of time to about 9 pm. Too much noise. If it is a Romney landslide we will know something sooner.

    There was a time I could tolerate Fineman but he’s one of those whose voice I just can’t stand. He did say the DEM message to Virginians is “stay in the line”. Which could be desperation or just common sense

    Sharpton saying Romney needs to win Virginia by 3 or 4 to win the Election. I laughed because that sounds like they all feel Romney has Virginia

    I am also watching MSNBC. Very interesting. They seem confident at this point but of course I expect that. I am crossing my fingers that they’ll be disappointed in the end.
