Poll shows Obama’s class warfare rhetoric isn’t working – people still want to be rich

Despite the Obama administrations fierce attempts to throw the country into a class war, recent polls prove it has been ineffective.

Although Obama has focused his reelection campaign on portraying the rich as bad people and has attempted to turn the rest of the United States against them, a Gallup poll released today shows that more than six in 10 Americans believe the country benefits from having a rich class. This is same number of people who hold views as it was 22 years ago.

In addition, 63 percent of the country who is not rich said they would like be rich if they had the choice. This is a good indication that people still aspire to be wealthy and achieve the American Dream even though Obama has attempted to make the rich look heartless and selfish since taking office.

Likewise, Obama has made increasing taxes on the rich a focus of his agenda this year. He has also attempted to paint presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, as a rich, out-of-touch candidate who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Even former SNL actor Jon Lovitz recently criticized Obama after voting for him in 2008 saying, “This whole idea of this 1 percent versus the 99 percent, it’s a false static.” Lovitz added that Obama was “creating a false class warfare” with his policies and rhetoric.

Today’s Gallup poll show’s Lovitiz isn’t the only American is who isn’t buying the Divider-in-Chief’s phony class war.  Looks like Obama campaign will have to find a different issue to use to pit Americans against each other this November.
