Real News' Panel: It's the Economy, Stupid

News

At a fundraiser in Philadelphia last night, the president told donors that most voters “aren’t following the day to day…ins and outs of this campaign."

The "Real News From The Blaze" staff and panel have the goal of solving this problem, once again contributing to more well-informed audience by focusing the opening segment of the show Wednesday on the president's economic plan.

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 54 percent of voters view the president’s economic policy negatively, becoming a more discouraging number if you narrow the survey field to registered independents. A silver lining for the Obama team can be found in that independent voters are not so hot on Romney’s plan either, with 47 percent viewing it unfavorably. However for Romney, a larger percentage polled are undecided on his economic stance, giving potential for a swing back in the challenger's favor should he become more attractive as the economy continues to limp.

On Thursday, President Obama is set to give his big 2012 “framing speech” in Cleveland, focusing on the economy and his plan which he claims is on the side of the middle class as oppose to his challenger. On 'Real News' Wednesday the panel discussed the economic philosophy of each candidate, and what economic policies we can expect from whoever is in the White House for the next four years.
