Per a Reuters/Ipsos poll, Southern whites are troubled by Willard Romney’s enormous wealth (read: out of touchitude) and his Mormon religion (read: WTFitude). There’s a lot more to this article, so link over, but here’s how it opens:
(Reuters) – Sheryl Harris, a voluble 52-year-old with a Virginia drawl, voted twice for George W. Bush. Raised Baptist, she is convinced — despite all evidence to the contrary — that President Barack Obama, a practicing Christian, is Muslim.
So in this year’s presidential election, will she support Mitt Romney? Not a chance.
“Romney’s going to help the upper class,” said Harris, who earns $28,000 a year as activities director of a Lynchburg senior center. “He doesn’t know everyday people, except maybe the person who cleans his house.”
She’ll vote for Obama, she said: “At least he wasn’t brought up filthy rich.”
Thought bubble: “At least that French gay Marxist socialist Kenyan Muslim understands us and relates to us better than that rich, boring white guy who wears weird undies.”
As for Paul Ryan, there’s this little nugget:
HUDSON, Wis. (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan plans to begin airing ads in Wisconsin on Wednesday as he asks voters to elect him to an eighth House term he hopes to never serve.
What a team.
