Cenk asks his Power Panel — Karl Frisch and Linda J. Killian — whether attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record will appeal to independent voters, who make up about 40 percent of the electorate.
Killian says, “Independent voters say they don’t like negative ads, but they work when they take advantage of something that’s already in voters’ minds, and they obviously already have in their mind that Romney isn’t like a real person, and that he doesn’t care about average people.”
Cenk says, “And that’s why we call him ‘Robocorp.’”
Frisch says, “We’re going to see this going back and forth. If Mitt Romney’s going to get up there and demonstrate his experience as an executive… then he has every right to expect that we’re going to talk about Bain and what he did there.”
