After dumping millions of campaign dollars into their campaign against the rich, only 20% of American voters are troubled by Mitt’s wealth. 75% of voters don’t give a damn.
The Politico reported, via Free Republic:
One in five registered voters, largely Democrats and independents, say that Mitt Romney’s wealth makes it less likely that they will support him for president, according to a new poll out Thursday.
Indeed, while 75 percent of voters said that Romney’s riches made no difference in their voting preferences, 20 percent said that it made them less likely to vote for him, reports Gallup.
A small percentage – 4 percent – said that Romney’s wealth made it more likely that they would vote for him.
“As you know Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has a net worth of over 200 million dollars. Does the fact that he is this rich make you more likely or less likely to vote for him, or does it make no difference?” the question from Gallup read.
The bulk of those who were less likely to support Romney due to his wealth comes from Democrats and independents. 37 percent of Democrats and 19 percent of Democrats said that Romney’s wealth made them less likely to vote for him.
Voter income plays a factor in whether one is less likely to vote for Romney on account of his wealth. 28 percent of those who make less than $24,000 said they were less likely to vote for Romney on account that “his is this rich”; other income categories had between 18 percent to 20 percent saying they were less likely to vote for Romney due to his wealth.
The Obama campaign has tried to stress Romney’s wealth.
