Obama Campaign: We Will Win If We Do What We Need to Do

If you're feeling at all doubtful about the presidential race, here's just the medicine you need! In the video below Obama/Biden Campaign Manager Jim Messina explains why they feel confident about the swing states: large early voting advantages, getting "sporadic" voters (ones who didn't vote in the midterms) to the polls, and Democratic registration advantages. Messina says the President will win if we do what we need to do.

Need more? This morning on Morning Joe David Axelrod made a bet with conservative host Joe Scarborough: If Obama loses Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania (states the Romney campaign claims are in play), “I will come on ‘Morning Joe’ and I will shave off my mustache of 40 years." Conversely, if the President wins either North Carolina or Florida, Scarborough will have to grow a mustache. Axelrod is as serious about his mustache as John Gregg, so he must be pretty confident!

As Jim Messina says, we just need to do what needs doing: work for candidates we care about, vote, and help others vote. Even if Indiana doesn't go for the President this time out, we can help turn a Republican Senate seat blue, give the President an ally in the Indiana statehouse, and help keep Indiana government balanced.
