Obama pollster: No, Romney isn't playing the race card

One of the big debates over the past weeks has been over whether Mitt Romney is using the race card against President Obama in an ad hitting the president for changing the 1996 welfare reform law that requires recipients to work for the money.

On Tuesday, Obama’s pollster Joel Benenson seemed to put an end to the debate when he refused to join with those who see race-baiting by the Romney campaign. “I have no idea if they are playing the race card,” he said if the GOP was using it. What’s more, he said that the ad is not moving white voters away from Obama.
