Romney Has Support Among Lowest Income Voters

Perhaps the above should read "had" support among lowest income voters?

2. Nope - those who support him believe themselves to be

hard working Americans carrying the rest of us lazy bums - it's a self delusion.

10. students, for one thing. significant number are low-income, but have middle to high-

 

income parents.

conservative retirees, for another. lower income in retirement than during their working lives, but still have the same values. consider SS/MC something they paid for, not a 'handout' -- which is basically true.

11. I know people who are really struggling financially, and who are on assistance

who would never vote for Obama.

1. He's black.
2. They think he's Islamic and nothing you say will ever convince them otherwise.
3. They think he was born in Kenya.
4. They think he wants to destroy America and give it over to some Islamic socialist country somewhere and we can all live and serve the Islamic socialists, whoever they are.
5. Probably some other stupid stuff. Oh yeah, they hate gay people and won't vote for anyone who might be nice to them.
6. I almost forgot about abortion, but they wouldn't.

If you know what whistles to blow, you can easily get people to vote against their own self interest.

13. yeah, these are the same people who complain about others getting govt assistance

i know a person who was bashing some workers on strike and immigrants protesting . she was like "they should go to work, get a job etc".

she gets govt assistance because she had a kid with some criminal who is now in prison. but she is still always saying the same shit and talking about what a great religious person she is.

such obvious hypocrisy.

Last edited Tue Sep 18, 2012, 05:19 PM - Edit history (1)
