Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney is wrapping up an overseas trip meant to boost his foreign policy credentials.
Romney has made a series of gaffes, first questioning London’s readiness to host the Olympics, and then making remarks in Israel that many Palestinians found offensive and some even called racist.
Today, he responded by criticizing the media for focusing too much on those incidents.
We asked our OutFront Political Strike team about whether Romney would have been better off staying home?
Tune to Erin Burnett OutFront at 7p ET for the results from our political strike team.
Here is tonight's OutFront poll:
Was Romney's trip 'a great success' or gaffe-filled disaster?
In the estimation of Mitt Romney and his top campaign aides, there were no gaffes, no mistakes, no ill-advised statements on the Republican candidate's overseas trip.
The poorly timed comments at the Olympics? No big deal. Theremarks in Israel that inflamed the Palestinians? Overblown. The off-color words to the press by a Romney aide Tuesday? In the heat of the moment.
A trip that was supposed to show off the former governor's foreign policy expertise during an election year has been plagued with distractions as well as marked by substantive highlights.
Still, as the candidate wrapped up his last leg in Poland, a senior Romney adviser said the campaign will land back in the U.S. late Tuesday, supremely confident of the results on the ground.
