Romney Supporters See Big Win on Tuesday [VIDEO]

They believe undecided voters will vote for Mitt Romney on election day for three reasons: the economy, the economy and the economy.

It was 6:30 a.m. and hundreds of Mitt Romney supporters were lined up in front of the Portsmouth International Airport to attend a rally here on Saturday morning.

With just three days to go before the Nov. 6 general election, many Romney supporters were exuding confidence that Romney would defeat President Obama for three simple reasons: the economy, the economy and the economy.

Paul Giblin of Burlington, Vt., vice president of Vermont Sports Cars, got up at 1:15 a.m. and drove for four hours to see Romney. He believes Romney is the best candidate who can turn the economy around so that businesses like his company can thrive again. He believes the best thing Romney could do if he is elected president would be to lessen taxes on small business.

"We need somebody who understands business," Giblin said.

Tyler McLaughlin of Madison, Conn., a retired nurse, traveled to Portsmouth with her 10-year-old grandson, Cian MaGauron, of Newburyport, Mass., to see Romney. Both of them said they believe Romney has the best chance to turn the country's economic fortunes around.

Even though Cian is just 10, he is worried about what his future will be like when he gets out of school one day.

Peter and Nancy Cook of Berwick, Maine, just got their power back three days after Hurricane Sandy hit the Seacoast region on Monday. Cook said he likes Romney's chances of pulling out a tight victory on Tuesday. "I think he has an excellent chance," Cook said.

Jim Arias of Easton, Mass., and his wife Nancy, also made the trip to Portsmouth to support Romney. Arias said he has been friends with Romney for 32 years since he first returned from his native Venezuela to Boston in 1980 and Romney was working for Bain Capital.

Arias believes Romney has all of the attributes needed to lead the country back to better days. "Mitt is a fantastic friend, a wonderful husband and father. Mitt would be a uniter. He will unite the people of the United States," he said.

Michael Murphy of Beverly, Mass., a tour guide with Boston Duck Tours, said he always liked the job Romney did as governor of his state and believes he would use the same approach to bring Democrats and Republicans together in Washington to solve the nation's biggest problems.

When asked why he believes Romney will win on Tuesday, Murphy said, "It's the economy. The economy is on everybody's minds."

Murphy said the last four years have been a struggle even for people like himself who have jobs and the country cannot afford to go another four years with President Obama's policies.

And FEMA and the Obama Administration are doing a great job at it, too. Compare and contrast with the last administration and their treatment of FEMA as a dumping ground for political appointees. Heckuva job Brownie, do you remember that? It's what you get when your overriding attitude towards government is that it's unnecessary.

Fundamentals. The fundamentals would ALL have to be wrong for Romney to win. Not saying it's impossible, but the fundamentals right now, other than in your universe, point to Obama winning. Good thing too, maybe the Republican Party will have to wake up stop being tools for the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh and Anne Coulter. We'd all be better off. BTW, people like Matthew Dowd (Republican Strategist) and others like him have Obama at around 303. Romney likely sunk himself in Ohio with the outrageous lies about Chrysler moving to China. One lie too many.

Read the "Economic News Release", by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm . The labor situation is pitiful and it is NOT getting better under the current administration. Time for REAL CHANGE!
