The memo notes that during that same week, President Obama has been put on the defensive explaining the more than $700 billion that he used from Medicare to fund ObamaCare, his unpopular health care law. The memo goes on to note that since the Ryan announcement, the Romney-Ryan campaign has made forays into swing states and established poll leads in several.
The memo concludes:
Polling data shows Romney gaining since the announcement. Both Gallup and Rasmussen show us leading Obama in national polling, and recent statewide polling shows us picking up ground in Ohio and Virginia.
While President Obama’s team continues its campaign of frustration and division to distract voters from his failed record, the Romney-Ryan team will continue offering solutions to the challenges facing our nation. America is ready for a comeback and if this past week is any indication, America’s comeback will begin on November 6th.
