Will growing gap between rich and poor influence midterm elections?

CCTV

“In the United States, the gap between rich and poor is the highest it has been since 1928. This gap is painfully obvious in a state like Arkansas. CCTV America’s Sean Callebs visited Little Rock to speak to residents about their concerns as part of our ongoing series, Route 2014: The Road to the U.S. Election.”

  1. Surely the growing gap between rich and poor will influence the election — it will boost the right wing Republican vote. This is the same thing that is happening in the EU — ultra-right parties are the biggest beneficiaries of the depression.

    It is a logical trend — the Obama administration has presided over the largest transfer of wealth from the 99% to the 1% in modern times. The vast majority of people have NOT seen things get better. The opportunity of the 2008 meltdown was squandered by Obama. When he appeared with Larry Summers and Robert Rubin right after winning the 2008 election I knew it was “game over”.

  2. upstarter, you mean the Obama administration has presided over the largest transfer of wealth from the needy to the greedy.
