Hopefully this doesn’t actually surprise anyone, phony eat-the-rich rhetoric notwithstanding:
The [Economist/YouGov] poll found that fewer than half of those with incomes less than $100,000 per year approve of Obama’s performance, while he enjoys a 54 percent approval rating among those with incomes higher than that.
Those earning less than $40,000 a year disapprove of the president’s performance, 51 percent to 45 percent. Those earning $40,000 to $100,000 disapprove by a rate of 50 percent to 48 percent.
Given responsible media coverage, Obama’s approval numbers among the middle and lower classes would be dramatically reduced. But his popularity among fellow millionaires would remain unchanged. The well-to-do can afford moonbattery; the rest of us can’t.
The ultra-rich have good reason to approval of Obama. Like its sibling fascism, liberalism is a type of oligarchical collectivism. If you can afford a seat at Big Government’s table, you are part of the oligarchy, and all is well.
If you can’t afford a seat at the table, you are on the menu.
