Supporters of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney are expressing frustration at a series of unforced errors currently bedeviling a campaign that they believe is not telling the candidate’s story to America, The Washington Post reported.

Advisers, donors, and Romney supporters are characterizing the campaign as one in turmoil. They point to the Obama campaign’s unanswered summer ad blitz depicting Romney as a ruthless businessman who shipped jobs overseas and had mysterious foreign investments. They also note the stumbles on his foreign trip and the missed opportunities at the Republican National Convention.

Other recent troubles include Romney’s comments about the situation in the Mideast and not the video of his remarks to donors.

“They erred by not spending very aggressively in the summer to combat the negative ads,” a campaign adviser told the Post. “They felt they didn’t need to because people weren’t paying attention. There was some statistical empirical evidence that people were not paying attention. But some of [Obama’s ads] worked and threw them on defense.”

However, Romney is standing by his team.

“I’ve got a terrific campaign,” he said in an interview with Telemundo according to the Post. “My senior campaign people work extraordinarily well together. I work well with them. Our campaign is doing well.”

Nonetheless, the campaign has been working to reassure supporters, briefing members of Congress on the race last week, and organizing conference calls with top donors in an attempt to calm nerves, the Post reported.
