Axelrod calls GOP's 'you didn't built that' attack 'ineffectual


After all Republicans have done to hammer on President Obama for his "you didn't build that" line, David Axelrod, adviser to the Obama campaign, says it's not working.

“It’s striking to me how enamored they are with that theme and how ineffectual it’s been,” Axelrod said in an interview with the Washington Post yesterday. “You look at the polling and they’ve spent millions and millions of dollars on it and it may thrill their base. But it hasn’t expanded their base because people understand that the view they’re imputing to the president isn’t his view. I don’t feel like we have to respond to their dry holes.”

Axelrod is right on poll numbers. Rasmussen currently has Obama at 44 percent among likely voters and Mitt Romney at 48 percent (within the three-point margin of error). The latest Gallup poll shows Obama at 47 percent among all voters and Romney at 46 percent (also within the margin of error).
