Obama creamed Romney among non-full-time workers, which includes retirees, not just "moochers." There, the split was 53-45.

Apparently, 53% of the people prefer freebies to full-time work.

Here are some other interesting responses in the exit polls:

"In your vote for president, how would you rate the importance of Obama's hurricane response?"

42% rated this "important."

Seriously? In an election where major health care legislation and financial solvency weighs in the balance, a photo-op with Christie is rated "important?" This does not say much about the intelligent of 42% of American voters.

Who would better handle the budget deficit?

47% of the people chose Barack Obama.

Again, this does not say much for the intelligence of 47% of the electorate. How can anybody in their right mind choose a man who ran up record trillion plus annual deficits and pushed through another entitlement costing trillions more, a man who has put forth absolutely no plan of his own to trim the deficit while demonizing a Ryan plan that modestly slowed down government spending in the future, a man whose budget proposal didn't gain a single vote? How can anybody in their right mind choose a community organizer with this record over an accomplished businessman?

Perhaps this was the 47% Mitt was talking about.
