Romney's Big Challenge: Win White-Collar Suburban White Voters

Aug 28, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.theatlantic.com

Mitt Romney has long faced charges of lacking empathy, but, ironically, his greatest challenge in the campaign's final months may be winning the voters who he most resembles: well-educated, white-collar white suburbanites.

Keep showing that DEBT TOTAL.

Americans are concerned about:

1. ECONOMY
2. JOBS
3. ENERGY DEPENDENCE
4. HIGH COST OF GAS
5. HIGH COST OF FOOD

Media = always deviating from our concerns

Focus on WHAT MATTERS, let's not have a media driven election.

I don't know a single white collar suburban voter who plans to vote for Obama.

That is because many live in the non-welfare states, not Georgia.

You don't know any white collar suburban voters then, do you? Especially those of us whose suburban homes are now worth 40% less than they were 5 years ago thanks to George Wanker Bush.

Back in 2008, many suburban white voters liked the novelty of a black president and the fresh new car smell of Obama, but he doesn't have that advantage in 2012.

I doubt that Rmoney is going to win over anybody that didn't already know in their hearts that he was the 'one'.

Who chose this subject? Romney is winning in the Cook county Suburbs outside Chicago. You remember Chicago? The killing Capital of the U S. Obama's chosen home town. Where everyday the death count goes up, and every weekend there is a killing spree?

So, another deluded drag on our economy, from another bum welfare state chimes in...

Don't hold your breath welfare sucker.

Romney will have to read the riot act to the TEA-BAGGERS at the RNC.
They will go from tea-baggers to t-bones, and sit out the election; as Romney etch-a sketches to the left; and becomes a pariah to all.

Romney cannot win with the tea-bags; and Romney cannot win without them.
Figure it out.

Happiness is not all that money can't buy.

I don't see the point in drawing balance of federal taxes vs. expenditures along state lines. There are those individuals who pay more than they receive, and then those individuals who receive more than they pay. It's Washington who makes the decision.

Your comment might matter if there were any truth to it, i.e., that you're part of the working class. Since you're on the government teat, though, you have no credibility on the topic.

Romney has already won, the elction is just a formality. Obama screwed up too often. He just assumed if he got elected with Affirmative action in 08 he would this time too. Huh uh, we want results, and there aren't any.

A typical welfare Bum excuse..."I'm entitled because somebody else is paying." ... "Not my fault that I receive more than I pay in."

Thanks for actually reading the report.
