Transcript for Storm Could Overshadow Republican National Convention
on the gulf coast gets ravaged by a hurricane. Thanks, jon. Let's go to diane. I'm looking forward to joining you tomorrow. You had to make your way through sloppiness this morning. We did. I cannot wait to see you, george. It will be great to have you here. It's not getting the delegates here, the 2,000 delegates or the 20,000 people that will fill the stadium. We came in this morning to a lot of slosh. You could get into puddles up to your ankles. The gusts of wind would blow you against the wall sometimes. That wasn't the problem. The problem, as jon just said is this. How to have a muted pep rally. And if people are in harm's way. I want to show you something right here and up in the ceiling. Those are 120,000 balloons waiting to drop. They have to make this decision minute by minute with their fingertips. It's tough. They know if they are muted in the pep rally, they're sharing the screen all week long with the possibility of a hurricane hitting new orleans on the anniversary of katrina. You know, george, I just lost your audio. But I'm going assume that you're asking me about the job to be done here. And because I thing one of the big thing they have to get done here is address some of our new poll numbers coming in. Because our poll numbers show that it's virtually tied. Coming in. Not unusual. But there's an issue. More people, more people trust romney on the economy, but they think he favors the wealthy over the middle class. There's a lot of work to get done here in terms of arding this issue of the middle class and his relate blt. That will be coming up. By the way, I want you the know, I'm getting ready to head off and meet with the five romney sons who are waiting for me upstairs. One of the things they want to address is who their father really is along with ann romney, as jon karl said. Thanks, diane. Looking forward to that on "world news" tonight. Tomorrow, I'll join diane in prime time at 10:00 eastern.
