Swing state poll: Romney still struggling to convince voters he cares

"SNIP....................................

In the key swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, voters were asked the question, “Would you say that Mitt Romney cares about the needs and problems of people like you or not?”

In all three, more people answered “not.”

A new poll by CBS News, the New York Times, and Quinnipiac University found that 54 percent of likely voters in Pennsylvania, 55 percent in Ohio, and 49 percent in Florida said Romney did not care about their problems.

A smaller contingent said Romney did understand them: 39 percent in Pennsylvania, 38 in Ohio, and 42 percent in Florida.

2. LOL! I'm sure nobody at that GOP convention will be allowed to talk about specifics.

It should be one vague convention. Boring. Vacuous. All wrapped in the flag.

3. Romney told off on himself

when he told the press when asked about the Auto Bailout a while back. I believe those "infamous" words are still ringing in the ears'of swing state voters EVERYWHERE... "Let Detroit go 'bankrupt'".
