The reality of Mitt Romney's favoritism toward the top 0.1 percent appears to be getting through to people.
When the middle-class people surveyed by the Pew Research Center were asked who would be helped by Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's policies, the thing that came through loudest and clearest is that Mitt Romney will help the rich. A whopping 71 percent thought that (correctly!). Following that up, 62 percent believe President Obama's policies would help poor people and 52 percent thought Obama would help middle-class people. By comparison, just 42 percent think Romney's policies would help the middle class—barely more than think Obama's policies help the rich (38 percent). It's a pretty stark visual comparison, with the bar representing the wealthy absolutely dominating the middle class and poor people on Romney's side.
