Romney ‘Pleased With Some Polls, Less So With Others’

Speaking to ABC News Wednesday evening, Mitt Romney said he wasn’t sweating the large swath of swing state polling showing him trailing President Obama, but that some polls did give him pause:

On the same day that polls in two key battleground states — Ohio and Florida — showed President Obama growing his lead over Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate acknowledged that he is “pleased with some polls, less so with other polls.”

“Frankly at this early stage, polls go up, polls go down,” Romney said in an interview on Wednesday with ABC’s David Muir on the campaign trail in Toledo, Ohio.
