Finley: Dems' Class War Fails to Turn On Middle-Class Voters
According to Nolan Finley, Democrats are campaigning this election year as defenders of the beleaguered middle class.
He says they are peddling the myth that the wealthiest Americans are exploiting everyone else.
But it's not working.
He cites a poll released this week that finds voters in households earning $36,000 to $89,999 favor Mitt Romney, "poster boy of the 1 percent," by a margin of 49 percent to 45 percent over President Barack Obama.
Writes Finley: "Those middle-class voters are exactly aligned with wealthier Americans, who also prefer Romney 49-45, suggesting that the class warfare pitch is a big, fat loser."
