MSNBC “Morning Joe” Crew Speculates as to why David Axelrod has been so “Agitated” and “Upset” in Recent TV Appearances; Barnicle Speculates Internal Polling Shows Something Worrisome – Video 8/15/12
Here is video from this on “Morning Joe” where the crew speculated as to why Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod has been so “agitated” and “upset” in recent TV appearances. Mike Barnicle openly wondered if the Obama Campaign’s internal polling is showing something that has really got them worried. Time’s Mark Halperin believes the Obama Campaign planned to have this election won “during the summer” while they had a huge money advantage. But from this point forward, Halperin said Obama is going to be outspent by Romney. Halperin said the Obama people believe if they do not have the election in hand by the time of the nominating conventions (Weeks of August 27 and September 3), they will be in trouble.
Yeah, as matter of fact we were talking about it very briefly before we went on this morning. I’m wondering is there something in their internal polling that shows them that there is a pivot point in this election that is really worrying the Obama campaign. That we’re not addressing, that we don’t realize, something internal in the polling.
Whether it’s the welfare stuff, whether it’s, the fact that people haven’t clung yet to the ideological ramifications of Paul Ryan being added to the ticket. I don’t know what it is, but there’s a sense of unrest at the top of that campaign that’s palpable.
