Romney winning with middle-class families
Vincent - i am absolutely positive this was an honest mistake, but for some reason you cut out the first part of the headline to the Politico article to which you linked
This is the full headline
Republican poll analysis: Romney winning with middle-class families
Politico does a "Democratic poll analysis" of the same polling data
So the story to which you link is on its face intended to be spin
There also is this fun fact - when you go the actual data upon which the articles are based it does not appear the "Republican poll analysis" is based on the actual polling data
If you go to page 115 of the data it looks like Obama and Romney are tied at 48% with 4% undecided of the self-defined "middle class" voters, with 43% of middle class voters definitely voting for Obama and 40% definitely voting for Romney
So much for Mitt's 14 point lead with the "middle class"
