Bain Attacks on Romney Bomb Big Time; Anti-Obama Groundswell Continues to Build
Folks, according to latest Gallup/USA Today poll: “Despite the concerted Democrat attacks on his business record, [Romney] has a large advantage over [Obama] when it comes to managing the economy.” The Politico has the story on this. “Gallup: Bain Still a Positive for Romney.” This has been a total bomb by Obama, this effort to castigate Romney on the basis of Bain Capital. “It may be the political question of the summer,” says Politico: “are Team Obama’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s business background working?
“Priorities USA polling says yes. Other independent polls — including from Gallup and NBC/WSJ,” say no. Not really. Reuters says it’s working, but nowhere else. “Gallup’s out with a round of data for USA Today that suggests, whatever the marginal impact of the Bain assault, Romney’s businessman brand is more of an asset than anything else, and that in the big picture he’s well positioned on the economy: ‘By more than 2-1, 63%-29%, those surveyed say Romney’s background in business, including his tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation’s economic problems over the next four years.'”
How many millions of dollars has Obama spent to bring about the exact opposite result? I’ll tell you something, folks. It’s stuff like this that makes me confident. I think that there is a hidden majority out there. I really do. You know, ever since Nixon first talked about it, there’s been a Silent Majority. I think that there is a groundswell of anti-Obamaism out there that is set to explode and shock and surprise everybody in the media and on the Democrat side. I don’t think this is a tight race.
