This is the biggest margin to date for Obama. I guess the pundits blew it again. It seems that the “bitter” comment isn’t hurting Obama, like they all claimed it would. As matter of fact, the AP is finding out that there isn’t much impact at all:
Yes, some Democrats in Pennsylvania’s Rust Belt communities were upset by Barack Obama’s suggestion that voters there “cling to guns or religion” because of bitterness about their economic lot. But many more seem to think it was no big deal – and if there’s a problem it’s with the political slapfest that has followed.
So Scarborough, Buchanan, O’Reilly, and all you other broadcasters out there, stop telling middle America how they feel. You are elitists in your own sense and have no idea what we “feel”. It’s an insult to try and tell us that. Here’s something middle America. Why don’t one of you guys walk into a local bar and start telling all the people that they need to “feel” this way? Watch how fast you get called outside.
