During a May fundraiser, Romney claimed that 47% of Americans are dependent on government handouts and will vote for Obama “no matter what.”
He says he won’t worry about that near-majority because he’ll “never convince them.” He’s written off “those people.” Instead, he believes his only hope is to convince the “five to ten percent” of independents to vote for him. View his comments here:
Obviously, Romney’s math is wrong. And so is his approach. There are many Americans who receive government benefits who nevertheless can be convinced do the right thing in November.
But if Romney continues to compliment the media’s class warfare theme, he is courting disaster. It’s no wonder many question whether Romney is really trying to win.
