Obama Campaign Jumps into Fray on Auto Bailout

Thursday, February 23, 2012 - 03:57 PM

Seemingly enjoying the fact that neither Rick Santorum nor Mitt Romney supported the bailout of the auto industry, the Obama campaign is out with an ad rubbing it in. "When a million jobs were on the line...every Republican candidate turned their back," the ad says.

An NBC/Marist poll today shows a healthy  majority of Democrats and Independents support the bailout -- and a not insignificant number of Republicans do.

Michigan Republicans select a candidate next Tuesday -- but the real battleground for Obama is November, where Michigan will be a key swing state.

Michigan voted for Obama in 2008, but in 2010 elections went heavily Republican.
