Do you think a working Republican thinks Romney was talking about him/her regarding this whole 47% video?
I had a discussion yesterday with someone who believed Romney really screwed himself with the comments he made regarding the 47%. That blue collar republicans who fall into this catagory of “not paying taxes” will be offended and will be worried about Romney’s policies and now Romney has lost their vote.
I argued that Republicans who have a job, but don’t pay federal income tax, don’t think they are who Romney is talking about. They believe in their minds they work, so they take personal responsibility, Romney is not talking about them. It has little to do with the details amd facts, and everything to do with how someone perceives themselves.
Who do you think is right? The person I was discussing it with or me?
If you are aware of any polling that might be interesting. Or, if you have seen any interviews with Republicans who fall into the category Romney refers to.
