CANDIDATE OF THE RICH: “In Virginia, the state that could clinch the election for Barack Obama, those with incomes over $100,000 are voting 57-42 for Obama, according to Rasmussen’s latest poll. Nationwide, Obama is leading among six-figure earners 50-45, according to Rasmussen. Four years ago, Obama won $150k-plus earners by two points, because he won $200k+ voters by 6 points, according to exit polls. Democrats will always call Republicans the party of the rich. The media will always believe it. The facts generally tell a different story.”
UPDATE: Reader Frank Stephenson writes: “I bet a large share of the over $100k folks supporting Obama in VA are state or federal employees.” Good point!
