Poll: Romney Libya Comments Misfire

Mitt Romney's criticism of President Obama's handling of the attacks on American outposts in the Middle East does not appear to have resonated with voters, according to a new survey released Monday. While 26 percent of Americans approved of Romney's comments critical of the president's response to the attacks, which left four American foreign service officers dead, 48 percent of those surveyed disapproved and an additional 26 percent did not voice an opinion, according to a poll from the Pew Research Center. Meanwhile, 45 percent of those polled said they approved of the president's handling of the situation, versus 36 percent who disapproved/Justin Sink, The Hill. More here.

Question: Why did Romney fail to gain traction on Libya?
