Shock poll: Wealthy, not middle class, support Obama

(Washington Examiner) President Obama’s approval numbers are starting to mimic Mitt Romney’s.

According to a new Economist/YouGov poll, it’s the rich — not the poor or middle class — who back Obama more despite his 2012 campaign attacking the rich.

The poll found that fewer than half of those with incomes less than $100,000 per year approve of Obama’s performance, while he enjoys a 54 percent approval rating among those with incomes higher than that.
