Axelrod on Working Class Whites

Here’s the post-Kentucky take from Barack Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, on the notion that his candidate has trouble attracting support from white working class voters.

Speaking on NPR WNYC’s “The Take Away” this morning, Axelrod said, “Those numbers vary, of course, from state to state.”

He went on, “The larger point is when you look at general election polling, there isn’t a great deal of difference between how Senator Clinton and Senator Obama are polling among that particular group of voters.”

Marc Ambinder takes a different angle on the idea that there’s a trend, saying, basically, Obama might not need them anyway, while David Kurtz thinks it might be an “Appalachia problem.”
