I don’t think the common person is getting it. Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them. We’ve got the message. But my college kid, the babysitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.
— An unnamed donor at Mitt Romney’s weekend fundraiser in the Hamptons, explaining to The Los Angeles Times how lower-income people just don’t understand the GOP’s message.
