Democrats Issue Warning To Obama: Stop Talking About The Economy, People Don’t Believe You

You can only BS the public so long.

Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville have released a striking new report arguing in stark terms that some key voting groups now reject President Obama’s claim that the economy is improving — and may well reject Obama himself in November.

Democracy Corps, the political consulting group run by Greenberg and Carville, showed several Obama campaign commercials to focus groups in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Several of the group members, who were “all independents or weak partisans and ticket-splitters” and included both Obama and McCain voters from 2008, became irritated when shown Obama ads touting economic improvement.  They don’t see that improvement in their own lives, the report says, and they don’t believe Obama when he claims things are better.
