Jon Stewart Jabs Romney For 'Getting Dumber' As Election Approaches (VIDEO)

In a normal election, a stagnant economy and global unrest would be pretty tricky things for an incumbent president to campaign with, but for Barack Obama they're a walk in the park. Why? Because Mitt Romney keeps messing up all the freakin' time.

On Tuesday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart joked, “Whatever his missteps are as a candidate, Barack Obama is surging in the polls because the closer we get to the election, the dumber Mitt Romney appears to be getting."

He premiered a new segment called "Barack Obama Is the Luckiest Dude on the Planet" to explain the phenomenon.
