I -- some big money Republican donors are actually beginning to hedge their bets a weight from Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
Top Republicans in key house and senate races instead.
I guess we had the exclusive.
Meantime that they think president Obama's -- -- that's.
Yes or -- or we should point out that this is a new trend -- I've -- -- by good reporting some of the stuff coming out the Romney campaign for the last couple weeks what I in the sand in the last week.
We see this type a trend it's not money.
Going from Republicans.
Into -- from Romney to the President Obama it's more LS report money that was going to -- pledge to to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
-- now diverted house and senate seats because you have key Republican donors many of them in the new York new Yorker that's -- the -- things recover Wall Street and a lot of the big money guys here.
That money from what I understand is starting to be diverted to house and senate races -- -- it.
That is not good news for -- probably now could this change well I can tell you this I've talked to people inside the Romney campaign.
They confirmed this trend they confirmed it's -- begin it's the trend is beginning.
They believe it's reversible they believe that one good strong.
Debate performance coupled with the fact that -- some of these polls showing President Obama had both nationally and in the key battleground states but one good debate performance.
Can reverse this and bring that money back to the candy which is needed if you look at the overall numbers.
President Obama a note is basically the -- -- probably two to one there's no doubt about that in terms of overall numbers he Mitt -- those raise a lot of money.
I remember a lot of that -- -- -- Obama used a lot of it now is money early on so.
The the -- -- is -- narrow but clearly they need money for the home -- and this is one of the problems with polls when polls show you behind.
It -- people lose enthusiasm and and and people was particularly businessmen and a lot of businessmen who supported -- Ronnie.
They say why am -- putting their -- our money.
In a campaign which is losing its better -- the diverted to other races which aren't where we have a chance to keep the house.
Maybe take the senator in seats in the senate that's what they're doing right now -- -- -- from what I understand I talked to some people.
At the Center for Responsive Politics -- -- listen can we see this in the numbers they said no you can't -- in the currents that current numbers which are against good up to September 21.
The next reporting deadline that I think is October 20 you might be able to see if there but clearly inside the Romney campaign this is happening it's concerning.
And they know it's because of these poll numbers.
And it's and -- and they know that that Mitt Romney has to come out would a good debate performance on Wednesday.
-- that's the first debate at.
-- or else you know the money is really gonna pull out the door and outfit that's a big problem for the -- you need money in the home -- -- disappointed -- the big money with his performance so -- -- -- -- performance in the -- his campaign -- data that that's the underlying concern here you know I will tell -- that a lot of them the money players and they've been -- directly.
To Romney folks about Paul Ryan why isn't he out there more.
-- they they accused that the the the -- campaign of mostly Paul Ryan to the point where Ryan had to intercede personally.
Had to assure people I know this for a fact.
That he is not being muzzled that the -- to go out there they feel they haven't -- -- up they feel that the -- Romney campaign has been way too tentative.
Attacking the president on the economy let's face it we're talking about a double dip recession right.
There's no doubt Ben Bernanke says is not a risk we're not a recession now -- he he basically put on the printing press of money because.
All the numbers show we're heading to recession we -- unemployment numbers.
People dropping out of workforce and guess what -- -- talking about is you know Mitt Romney and Bain Capital and all this nonsense they believe that some of that.
And you know he's just so much you can you can blame -- liberal -- they believe some of that probably not get the message out.
Is Romney's fault that he's not out there he's not -- pushing the agenda.
In terms of the weak economy and foreign policy as well -- support and that's I don't think if it -- they support this Republican.
Get -- -- Republican congress right if we have a democratic president Republican congress to stop selling.
Yeah and -- you know you still have gifts it's better than than than before then.
If you want to do anything in his second term then pres Obama probably -- -- point remember last week journal came back and fall needs today.
But last week reported about potential Treasury Secretary right.
-- Jack -- with the capitalist I said Erskine Bowles number two.
Larry think you know maybe a third.
I think if the Republicans take the senate and house I mean if you wanna get anything -- with a budget.
I don't think you bring in their partisan Democrat I think some like Erskine Bowles debt and that that would be -- good thing.
So listen I'm just -- -- -- this is odds making Mitt Romney has not lost yet.
Now I could just tell -- what his big money people doing.
They're hedging or -- -- trend is to begin to hedge it's not yet the numbers but the people in the Romney campaign I'm telling you.
They're told fox does network firsthand their feeling it.
They're worried they're hoping a good debate debate performing it can either reverse that trend or maybe you know.
Prevented from taking taking the the form of a mass exodus which -- -- is a long time in politics you have to write a long way to go yeah three days to the to the Wednesday night -- and I expect.
-- I don't know that aren't all the -- like he -- -- -- depth -- which.
