Romney campaign held several calls with Republican activists in Washington

Washington (CNN) – Romney campaign officials held several calls Tuesday with Republican opinion makers in Washington trying to reassure them, one participant confirmed to CNN. The officials said they believed Mitt Romney was narrowly ahead in Ohio, the source said.

"We feel very good about how things are trending today," Romney campaign senior adviser Ed Gillespie told Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "Situation Room." He added: "Ohio looks very, very strong for Governor Romney, and we'll carry it tonight."

    Those predicting a Romney win are refusing to acknowledge a very stark reality. This is a common Republican malady.

    Jon, you're talking about 1% of the population. No one is saying that all Republicans are uneducated. The trend is that the more education a person has, the better chance they lean liberal. That doesn't mean that every person with a lot of education leans liberal, especially when conservative policies would benefit the very wealthy.

    Republicans "are uneducated about humanity in general. They see everything as us (like Mittens and his snotty looking wife) and "those people" who are the ones who had the gall to want to see their tax returns. Quite simply, since they live off of interest from their investments, they cannot possibly understand people who have to work every day to live or if the fall behind they must endure scorn from the uninformed when the have to beg for government assistance. Ironically, these are the people who gladly paid their taxes when they were working.
