Pretty close to the truth. Who would vote for someone who promises to take away the goodies?

70% says they are victims (~310 votes)

Probably more predictive than not.

Nice wording on the poll.. NOT

“Do you agree with Mitt Romney’s assessment that 47 percent of Americans see themselves as victims?”

not that they would be trying to influence the poll or anything...

Then it'd be a lot more than 47%. Every Freeper would have to count ourselves as a victim of Obama's disastrous economic, fiscal, foreign, education and energy policies.

I just walked in on CNN in our break room and they’ve got a bunch of charts up breaking down who pays taxes and who’s on government assistance. They’re trying to spin, of course, but it’s up there for all to see... they’re showing how nearly half of the country either doesn’t have a dog in the fight (don’t pay income tax) or depend on government (receive assistance) or both.

Freep a Poll! (do you agree with Romney remarks about 47% of Americans?)

When you take all the people on Welfare:
When you take all the people on Food Stamps;
When you take all the people on Unemployment;
When you take all the people on Medicare (which they helped pay for);
When you take all the people on Social Security (which they helped pay for);
When you take all the people on Medicade (which they did NOT help pay for);
When you take all the people on Disability:
When you take all the people on subsidised Rent Programs:

I am astounded that they all only add up to 47%
Only an Idiot would not agree with Romney !!

“A Nation of Takers: America’s Entitlement Epidemic”

‘Entitlements will be one of, if not the, key issue in the Presidential election this year. In this book, one of America’s foremost economists and demographers puts together a handy, brief, accessible guide that includes, for the first time, all the data on the growth of entitlements in America over the past 50 years.

Shows clearly the present day and future impact of entitlement growth on American culture and economy.

Includes easy-to-read, four color charts throughout the book that show growth of specific entitlements, including, medicare, social security, and disability payments.

A nation of Taker’s also contains a response to the data from William A. Galston and Yuval Levin, two of America’s leading political theorists.

Nick Eberstadt, William Galston, and Yuval Levin are highly regarded experts on political and economic issues and are regularly called on by the media to explain complex economic issues.’

Gee whiz! All that website is as ads, pop-up ads, ads at the bottom of the screen, ads on both sides, ads along the top so that all you see are ads, and, oh yeah, let’s throw an article or two and a poll in the middle. By the way, did you see our ads?

Disagree. The percentage is far higher than that and spans all classes. Most people now get their money from a big pile debt, mostly, and the various socialist factions are fighting over the debt/revenues in politics, media, etc. That’s why Republicans have gone so far to the left, trying, along with Democrats, to entice the same pool of socialist voters (government teachers, government pensioners, regulators, welfare recipients, environmentalist employees, social workers, all).

This is a bit dishonest. I voted yes, but I don’t agree with him. As a retired, social security and military pension receiver, I’m nearly 100% supported by the government (forget that I’ve paid into it). Romney surely has at least half of that 47% voting for him, and he needn’t and shouldn’t write them off. Just because they’re not working or paying the old big taxes doesn’t mean their minds have been pickled.

I think Romney’s combining moochers, which you are obviously not, and people who see themselves as victims (91% of blacks and Latinos). Remember, he was talking about The Won’s supporter’s. Since you don’t support him, you aren’t included in the criticism :)

Since you’ve paid into it, you are partially supporting yourself.

I voted yes also but I think he used to wide a brush to paint all of the 47% as thinking they are victims. But this was said at a fund raiser and was off the cuff. It may offend some people to be labeled and written off but I am glad he did not apologize. He did a good job at the press conference and can clarify the comments later while campaigning.

Until someone decides what the 47% is, how do you know how to vote.

Does it mean getting a check, or not owing taxes?
