This probably went a long way toward calming some Democrat nerves, because deep down you know Obama supporters — and everybody else for that matter — are well aware that Stephanie Cutter only speaks the truth:
In a conference call this afternoon, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign had one central message for their supporters when Election Day arrives tomorrow: They should “keep calm,” even if they hear snippets of information favoring Republican Mitt Romney.
“My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day,” Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. “We’ve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.”
The fear, she explained, was early numbers leaking before voters have finished going to the polls, creating unnecessary panic and pessimism among Democrats.
Fitting video accompaniment by way of Weasel Zippers:
Earlier, Cutter said the idea of Romney winning Pennsylvania is “not based in reality.” Which must mean that the Obama campaign sending Bill Clinton into Pennsylvania to shore up the state they say isn’t in jeopardy is also not based in reality.
In other election-related news, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, speaking with Chuck Todd about all the swing-state possibilities, said “if Pennsylvania’s in play, it’s all over for the president”:
Well, sorry Andrea, but Pennsylvania’s in play. For some extra bang, Romney will campaign in Ohio and Pennsylvania on the day of the election.
Meanwhile, President Obama is hoping that his role in bridging the gap between Bruce Springsteen and Chris Christie will pull in some of the independent vote.
