Obama Wins 8 of the Nation’s 10 Wealthiest Counties


quote:

In an election that often focused on debates about class warfare, President Barack Obama was favored over multimillionaire businessman Mitt Romney in eight of the nation’s 10 wealthiest counties.

And his margin of victory in all eight counties was greater than that of the national vote, in which Obama was leading by 50 percent to 48 percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting.

The findings are based on a CNBC.com analysis of Census Bureau numbers on average annual household income from 2006-2011 and results from Tuesday’s elections.

You know those counties are large majority white. Maybe they know something we don't

That is gonna confuse this board.

I said in another thread I suspected Obama got the upper middle class vote.

I just became a proponent of Obama's "tax the rich plan".

Time to pay your fair share boys!

I make good money and I expect to pay my fair share of taxes or higher taxes. Not a problem with me. Some people expect it.

It's not the most wealthy that Obama's policies seek to persecute.

this. the wealthy really don't give a shite either way, they have more than enough that no amount really hurts them

it is really easy for them to vote Dem (ex. celebrities) because it makes them feel good that they are "helping people"

the wealthy will never really be hurting no matter who is in power

as others have said, I wish I made enough to where it didn't matter how much I was taxed

Their money is already earned and is in the bank. Workers who earn ordinary income will be the ones paying higher taxes. The rich are already set and don't need income.

You don't know any wealthy people would be my guess. The wealthy pay advisors to avoid taxes. They have the discretion to decide if and when they want to realize income. Do you think other wealthy people are any different than Mitt Romney and his tax rate of less than 15%?
