Pew: Most Republicans Believe Poor Just Aren’t Working Hard Enough

This should come as no surprise, but a Pew study released today shows most Republicans believe you are poor because you choose to be poor. Or in other words, the poor are simply not working hard enough. This of course echoes the sentiments of Kevin O’Leary, who I wrote about yesterday. He’s the fat cat who said it’s “fantastic” that 85 people own the same wealth as 3.5 billion people (half of Earth’s population).

Fact of the Day: President Obama Wins 71 Percent Of The Latino Vote

Republicans will likely respond to their presidential election loss by calling for an even more conservative candidate in the 2016 election. They likely will claim that Mitt Romney in 2012 and John McCain in 2008 were not true conservatives, and if only a true conservative could be nominated, Republicans would win back the White House. The problem is, even though Mitt Romney and John McCain were once considered moderate, they did not run as moderates during their presidential campaigns. On the surface it may seem Republicans could win over the Latino vote with a conservative message, but they fail to do so because they instead cater their message to a shrinking white majority.
