Washington, Oct 10: The Obama campaign is brushing aside polls that showed the president losing significant ground after his flop performance at the presidential debate in Denver last week.
When asked about a Pew survey that found Obama fell from an 8-point lead to a 4-point deficit, campaign spokeswoman Jenn Psaki said that she is ‘not going to get into picking apart any individual poll.’
“We’ve always run this race like we’re 5 points down. We know that there are going to be many ups and downs… We have blinders on,” politico quoted Psaki, as saying.
“We’re implementing our own game plan. We’re focused on getting our supporters out, communicating the choice,” she added.
According to the report, Psaki also stressed that unlike rival Mitt Romney’s campaign, which has reportedly pulled back from Pennsylvania and upped its focus on Ohio, the Obama camp is still competing vigorously in every state it set its sights on from the beginning.
“We feel that the race and the states in play have been entirely consistent,” the report quoted her, as saying.
“This is a race that is being competed every day [in] about seven to nine states. That’s where we’re up on the air, that’s where our focus is,” she added. (ANI)
