The Man With The Car Elevator Doesn't Feel Your Pain
Despite his efforts to the contrary, plutocratic Conehead Willard "Corporations Are People" Romney can't shake the public's image of him as a hyper-wealthy, entitled corporate prince, completely out of touch with the middle class. A new poll by Bloomberg News shows that Prince Willard is viewed by 55% of likely voters as being out of touch with average Americans (vs. 36% for President Obama). Despite receiving low marks on his handling of the economy, President Obama leads Prince Willard 53% to 40% among likely voters, according to the same poll.
The more the public focuses on what Prince Willard and the Rethugs are offering -- a return to Dumbya's economic policies on steroids, plus reactionary social policies for women, etc. -- the better it is for Obama and the Dems. By resembling the boss that fired them, they sense that Prince Willard's not on their side, and that his Presidency would reverse whatever progress has been made for the middle class. They'd be right.
