RNC Memo Touts Momentum By Citing Poll That Shows Obama With The Lead

“The Romney-Ryan momentum is building, while the enthusiasm for Obama and Biden dwindles,” writes Rick Wiley, political director for the Republican National Commitee, in a memo circulated Friday to trumpet growing energy behind the GOP ticket as the party heads to its convention next week.

Wiley cites the latest swing state poll from Quinnipiac University, CBS News and the New York Times, which showed President Barack Obama leading in Ohio, Florida and Wisconsin. Rather than highlight the head-to-head numbers from the poll, Wiley instead focuses on the survey’s findings on voter enthusiasm. The poll showed Republicans with an enthusiasm advantage in all three battleground states.
