Axelrod, Messina Are (Still) Confident

11:50 a.m. E.T.


Much like their Monday media call, Chicago’s top pair remained staunch in their belief the President will prevail on Election Day.

Listen to their 27-minute call with Q&A here, including a breakdown of new battleground state polling, an explanation of their TV ad buys in Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania, plus discussions of mustaches, Doug Flutie and more.

Highlights:

JIM MESSINA: “We have the math. They have the myth…. The Romney campaign is trying to sell illusion and delusion…. There is no Romney momentum in the battleground states, only smoke and mirrors.”

DAVID AXELROD: “We’ve come to break glass time in Boston.”

DAVID AXELROD: “In keeping with the Halloween season, Governor Romney has decided to masquerade as a champion of the American auto industry.”

DAVID AXELROD: “I have put my mustache on the line and I am very confident that I will still have this mustache on November 8.”
