Who Is the 47 Percent?
Poll reveals why Romney may appear out of touch with American public.
Republicans are more likely to have access to basic necessities, says a Gallup poll examining which Americans are more likely to have their needs met. Democrats and Independents, however, report that they are less likely to have access to basic health care than their Republican peers are. Democrats and Independents are also more likely to report that they have times at which they lack the money to pay for health care or medicine than Republicans do.
Why is there such a discrepancy between party affiliation and quality of life? The data present an “interesting puzzle,” says Robert Alexander, PhD, associate professor of political science at Ohio Northern University. He is the author of Presidential Electors and the Electoral College: An Examination of Lobbying, Wavering Electors, and Campaigns for Faithless Votes.
