Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Mitt Romney could turn the presidential race around to his advantage by making it about the issues, saying, “If it's a campaign not about truth, Obama’s got a huge advantage.”
Speaking on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Barbour said the campaign so far has been marked by distractions and that Romney should refocus it on policy and President Obama’s record.
"The biggest thing that's damaging Mitt Romney here is this campaign is all about process," he said. "It's about polling, it's about campaign management. It's about everything but the issues. It's about everything but Obama's policies and the failures of those policies."
Barbour acknowledged Romney’s low favorability ratings, but said the race is “not a popularity contest.”
