The media has been running the meme that it’s Mitt Romney who needs to reboot his campaign. We even hear this stuff coming from the usual cast of Chicken Little Sky is Falling Coffee Table Beltway Conservatives like Peggy (pause) Noonan, Bill Kristol, David Frum, and David Brooks. But the fact of the matter is it’s the Obama campaign that is in trouble.
How do I know? Because Jim Messina, the campaign manager for Barack Obama is putting out this kind of crap.
“Obama campaign manager Jim Messina told reporters on Saturday that despite national tracking polls showing the president and Romney tied, Obama is still winning.
“In all the battleground states, we continue to see all our pathways there,” he told the White House pool at an Obama fundraiser in Milwaukee. “We’re either tied or in the lead in every battleground state 45 days out.”
Messina, who drove from Chicago to Wisconsin to be with Obama on his first trip to a state that appears to have come into play when Paul Ryan was selected to be Romney’s running mate, predicted that the national polling will get even closer, but that the president’s lead will hold in key swing states.
“I think you will see a tightening in the national polls going forward,” he said. “What I care way more about it Ohio, Colorado, Virginia, Wisconsin, etc. In those states, I feel our pathways to victory are there. There are two different campaigns, one in the battlegrounds and one everywhere else. That’s why the national polls aren’t relevant to this campaign.”
Of course that’s nervous spin. The Obama campaign is all about polls. They’re MSM mouth pieces like MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and Jim Harwood pump out a tweet every time a poll is out showing their man in the lead. Heck Harwood tweeted hysterically earlier this week when Obama appeared in the lead in that dirty rotten “GOP” poll Rasmussen.
But the real reason you can see that they’re in trouble. Obama’s Gallup approval is 46 percent as of the latest daily tracking. He has an equal disapproval rating. His poll numbers across the board are worse for any incumbent in recent history.
After all the one-sided media onslaught on Mitt Romney he’s still tied with Obama. That’s how weak Obama is right now. As I noted yesterday, his appearance at the Univision Forum in Miami was a disaster. For the first time perhaps since 2008 he was grilled with real questions to which he hemmed and haw and stalled and even resorted to a lie or two. That’s not a sign of winning, but of a campaign heading to defeat.
After all the one-sided media onslaught on Mitt Romney he’s still tied with Obama. That’s a huge testimony
