The stock market has almost doubled since Obama took office. Corporate profits are at record highs.

This *does* put food on the table, and so if Americans vote with their wallets, Obama should win.

That's at best a Maybe.

The stock market going up only helps if you won stock, and if you decide to sell the stock; otherwise, no impact. Then with the Obama plan taxes will go up on capital gains and dividends; negates this point.

Corporate profits do not put food on the table. Thye put re-investment and capital expenditures back into the business.

The real test is that personal income is WAY down and that is the pocket vote.
