Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan told his House colleagues on Thursday, "We are going to win this thing.”

"This is going to be an up and down race,” Ryan said in a closed-door conference meeting, according to a Republican aide in the room.

The disclosure was reported by the Hill.

“Three polls came out that have us within one point,” The Hill reports. “They are going to [try to] distract us.”

Ryan projected optimism as a bevy of polls showed that President Barack Obama was leading GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney by several points in swing states and national polls, the Hill reports.

Lawmakers told the Hill said the Wisconsin Republican made no direct mention of Romney’s comments about the “47 percent” of likely Obama voters, whom he disparaged in a May fundraiser that was secretly videotaped and leaked this week.

“They will try to make this about little things. We have taken all the tough votes and led,” Ryan continued, according to the Hill. "Here's our commitment: We are going to make this about the big things. We need to go on offense and we need to give our constituents the choice of two futures."

Ryan spent less than a half-hour at the Capitol Hill session, and the GOP aide told the Hill that he left to a standing ovation.

He took no questions, the Hill reports.
