Obama/Biden Cozy Up To Blue Collar Voters
Today, the media is swooning over Barack Obama’s supposedly huge lead in the state of Ohio. Politico is reporting that unnamed Mitt Romney advisers — they’re always unnamed – say that President Obama has a far easier path to re-election than Mitt Romney does to election. “Their map has many more routes to victory,” Politico quotes a “top Republican official” stating.
What’s more, Politico quotes “two officials intimately involved in the GOP campaign” saying that Ohio is leaning Obama in a heavy way, with Obama up near a ten-point lead. And Public Policy Polling, a Democrat-funded polling firm, says that Obama has a lead greater in Ohio than he won by in 2008.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has been deployed as President Obama’s proxy to blue collar swing voters. But while the Obama/Biden ticket appeals to blue collar women, they’re having a much rougher time with blue collar men. And that may cost them come Election Day.
