Winning the Middle

Obama's mantra has been that the nation cannot have a strong economy without a strong middle class, but it's Romney who leads among this group, according to a Politico/George Washington University Battleground Poll. The middle class, which accounts for 54 percent of the American electorate, prefers the Republican by 55 to 44 percent.
