The centrist think tank The Third Way just released a poll surveying voters who came out for Obama in ’08 and stayed home in 2010. Their findings? That the majority of those voters think that the Dems are too liberal, and that government is doing too much.

Nation correspondent Ari Melber went on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to take apart the findings of this poll and debate its significance with Third Way president Jonathan Cowan.

Watch to find out why you can’t take polls at face value, and what this one should mean for the Democrat’s strategy in 2012.
