Ann Romney: 'Too bad the election isn't today'

Ann Romney, the wife of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said on Wednesday, it's "too bad the election isn't today," amid persistent low polling for Obama and Democrats.

Multiple polls this week showed President Obama at the lowest point of his presidency in terms of his job approval.

One Washington Post/ABC News poll out last month revealed if the presidential election were held today, Romney would eke out a win over Obama, 49 percent to 45 percent support.

"Well, it's too bad the election isn't today," Romney said of that poll, in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "It's frustrating a bit to watch what's happening with the ObamaCare rollout, but we are where we are."

She initially said, however, she and her husband aren't rehashing the fiercely fought presidential race.

"We don't look back," Romney said. "Neither one of us ever look back."

She had some advice for members of Congress, in response to House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) comments that some Republicans "aren't as sensitive as they ought to be" in communicating with women.

"… there's more to it than just being more sensitive," Romney said.

She added: "Let's remember that the American people sent us there, and they we need to be respectful of the needs of the American people. Let's get things done. Let's work across the aisle because there's nothing now — I mean, it's just extraordinary what's going on in Washington."
