David Axelrod Reaches New Depth of Desperation in Spin


David Axelrod just Tweeted: “Bad night in Boston…WI raises big questions for Mitt.”

He points to this article: “According to early, partial exit poll results, voters on Tuesday said by 51 percent to 45 percent that they would vote for Obama if the presidential election were being held today.”

So, he’s pointing to exit polls that had it “too close to call”; at this hour, Walker is ahead by nine percentage points.

9 – 6 = 3.

Remember, this is a state that Obama won by 14 percentage points in 2008.
