Media Shocked by Voter Reaction to Debate
They were shocked. You shoulda seen their faces. They could not believe it. And Dean Reynolds says, “Well, there’s still time, still time for them to make up their minds! There’s still time for them to really, truly change their minds.” So six out of eight. The Luntz focus group was much the same. There were basically 27 people there, and 25 of them thought that Obama won the debate. But they’re all voting for Romney.
Do you know why? Because foreign policy doesn’t matter to ’em. They all agreed with Romney’s point that foreign policy’s wonderful but it’s worthless without a strong America at home. A strong American economy is what enables foreign policy and a great defense posture. We don’t have a strong economy at home, and all those people in the Luntz group in Ft. Lauderdale on debate points, it was Obama hands down.
It was Obama won, but it didn’t matter.
