Over at CNBC and yahoo! Finance, they are running an online poll asking whether Mitt Romney’s statement about the 47% will make one more or less likely to vote for him.
The result: most people agree with Romney and say that his statement will make it more likely that they’ll vote for the GOP.
At CNBC, 75% of 22,000 respondents (as of 6:00 Tuesday) say that Americans are too dependent on government. http://www.cnbc.com/id/49071984
At Yahoo! Finance, 47% of over 100,000 respondents say that his remarks will make it more likely that they’ll vote for him, only 29% say less likely. http://finance.yahoo.com/
I think that most people agree with Romney’s comments. I work in the pampered public sector and nobody in my lunch crowd disagreed with Romney. Once the media realizes this, they’ll bury the story.
