POLITICO: The big disconnect: D.C. elites think Obama will be re-elected, the public doubts it. “The midterms not only dealt a big shock to the Democrats, but also sent a message to President Obama. According to the new POLITICO ‘Power and the People’ poll, only 26 percent of the public believes he will now be re-elected as President in 2012. . . . This big difference can partially be explained by the different ways that the two groups see the economy and the world today. Seventy percent of D.C. elites admit that they have been affected less than the average citizen when it comes to the economic downturn. The elites see the Tea Party as purely a fad (70 percent).” Insular and out of touch.
