In the latest New York Times/CBS poll, nearly 60 percent of respondents in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania said that Romney’s plans would mostly help the wealthy. Less than ten percent said the same of President Obama.
A tour of coal-mining country in southern Ohio by the Atlantic’s Molly Ball produced some vivid anecdotes that illustrate this data. “Those opposed to Obama cited various reasons,” she wrote, “from disappointment to anger to being convinced he’s a Muslim. But the impressions of Romney were remarkably consistent: He’s for the rich.”
Journalists have even found working class voters who believe that Obama is a secret Muslim and intend to vote for him anyway, because – as one Virginian put it – “at least he wasn’t brought up filthy rich.”
...and a wealthy Chickenhawk to boot, who will likely send your sons and daughters to die in another useless war in Iran.
