  1. Obama Wins 8 of the Nation’s 10 Wealthiest Counties
    In an election that often focused on debates about class warfare, President Barack Obama was favored over multimillionaire businessman Mitt Romney in eight of the nation’s 10 wealthiest counties.
    And his margin of victory in all eight counties was greater than that of the national vote, in which Obama was leading by 50 percent to 48 percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting.

    1. It is sad to say, but you are correct. I see it just as much among my wealthy colleagues in Chicago. There is a way to change this however... If we switched to a wealth tax, liberalism, as it is defined today, would see votes from only the poorest segments of society.
