-- let's get to some of the important swing states Ohio Florida Virginia considered absolute must win states for governor Mitt Romney but according to the polls he is slipping in all three.
Here's the real clear politics average on that president -- with a slight lead in these battleground states.
And take note Ohio's four point spread no Republican has won the White House without winning.
The Buckeye State at least in modern history so let's bring them back in John absolutely a -- jail and Doug -- so congressman.
What do you make of that.
I wanna go over those very quickly because -- tells a lot first of all to -- all three of them have huge senate races going on at the same time.
And in Ohio and Florida and since the conventions -- -- the democratic candidate in each is an incumbent has moved ahead by about seven points and so there's a trend in the states for the democratic senator and a little -- for Obama.
And in each state there's local recent auto bailout is hurting Romney in Ohio.
Medicare is hurting him he brought this in the race when he picked congressman -- in Florida.
And in the New York Times poll 70%.
Of voters and apple said they do not want vouchers for Medicare.
We have opened up -- front that is hurting us that what about the flap over the alleged snub all of Netanyahu will that affect Florio.
It it is already affecting I'm seeing numbers down Florida believe that that state.
Because of that in defense both sad and I suspect Virginia on defense.
Are moving again helping Romney is hitting some some movement there Ohio was the problem.
Ohio in the end is the problem.
And again it's again the Republican establishment's inability to push back on the auto bailout which is -- made into -- holy Grail.
He's a tough state in the other thing we've talked on this program over and over again.
Then and don't talk about a week ago.
The did did Republicans not building their brand of their governors being successful saying this is a road -- -- for Romney indices are road -- I think this is is that part of probably in the spending.
Would tell -- -- this.
Video of real issue that is not been talked about great.
Is despite the financial advantage that governor Romney has he is being outspent.
In most of the of the swing states.
By the Obama campaign on TV and as we all know we -- we as we -- know from our own campaign experience you can't win an election yet if you're being outspent.
Isn't that going to change now because after the convention Romney can use the wind multi millions of dollars that he has it is -- -- right away and wind and the whole idea isn't pulls it.
Holy -- -- the end some mistake right about battle is going on now but I want to make another argument which uses the is saying is his scope closes.
As we see close Electoral College you gotta start moving this thing nationally moves they got to go to your predictions right now our congressman.
Well I'm gonna predict that governor Romney is gonna stick with the negative attacks all the way into the first debate saying to the president.
Everything you say sounds nice but frankly it's not working.
I'm gonna say a more dependable might just set about defense tomorrow next few days we're gonna see numbers on foreign policy goes I've been -- -- Schobel foot ramp.
And defense spending cuts and I'm -- -- say that contrary to what John was suggesting.
The Romney campaign should panicked.
They have to do something different I think there's going to be -- -- -- to the nation on TV.
Before the debate where the five point plan that Olivia was talking about kids broadcast again to the nation -- sooner Chrysler from there he's got him.
You know he ought to hire Olivia is a campaign -- way to do we could do a lot worse -- Doing a lot worse yeah that's -- -- -- -- a good to see you all thank you so much you get more from the campaign insiders every Monday.
