"You Didn't Build This" Bombs

The Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey read respondents President Obama's "you didn't build this" comments in context and asked how that changed their views of the president.

Key findings: 36% said it made them feel more positively about Obama, 32% said it made them view him more negatively and 26% said it made no difference.

Alex Burns: "On one level, it's not really surprising that a comment like this one, coming from a president whose liberal, community-oriented views are no secret, would fail to upend the presidential race... But considering the time and messaging weight the Romney campaign and RNC threw into attacking Obama on this point -- it was the theme of a whole day of the Tampa convention -- the lack any apparent impact is notable."
