Actually, I think this is worse than Byron thinks. Just as with the character attacks and the earlier poll from The Hill, the Gallup results show that Team Obama has been almost entirely unsuccessful at setting the narrative for voters. Successful candidates can set the narrative and get voters interested in their issues, and so far, Obama has failed to move attention at all from his poor record on job creation and economic growth.
Ed Morrisey adds this video to his post, which is stepping right up to the pitch Obama has been ducking.
Nice, positive ad that directly addresses the biggest issue for the voters. Be afraid, Barry.
