(CNN)– Keeping the economy front and center, the Obama-Biden campaign released a new post-debate ad Saturday, saying when it comes to the economy, GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain 'doesn't get it.'
"Number of minutes in debate: 90," the announcer says as the words are typed across a blank screen. "Number of times John McCain mentioned the middle class: Zero."
The economy took the lead in Friday night's debate, as both candidates looked to highlight their plans bring the United States out of what some are describing as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll found when it comes to the economy, 47 percent of voters questioned find the GOP are responsible for the current economic problems, while 24 percent said Democrats are more responsible.
The 30-second spot, 'Zero," includes portions of Friday night's debate where Barack Obama looked to pain McCain as lock-step with President Bush on economic policy.
"The fundamentals of the economy have been measured by whether or not the middle class is getting a fair shake," Obama said Friday night. In terms of tax policy, "you are neglecting people who are really struggling right now," Obama told McCain. "I think that is a continuation of the last eight years, and we can't afford another four."
According to the Obama campaign, the ad, known as “Zero,” will begin airing nationally Monday on cable.
Update: McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds released the following statement in response to the latest ad:
“John McCain repeatedly pointed to Senator Obama’s vote in favor of higher taxes on families making just 42,000 a year, and his proposal for $860 billion in lavish new government spending which is a crushing burden on middle class families and the Main Street economy," Bounds said in a statement Saturday. "If he was honest, Barack Obama knows he was unable to debate the merits of supporting higher taxes on the middle class, and bloated government spending during a looming economic crisis – it’s simply indefensible.”
