Romney's Regular Voter Problem

February 29, 2012 9:20 am ET
Despite growing up in Michigan and heavily outspending his opponents, Mitt Romney won ugly in the Michigan primary. After struggling to connect with regular voters, Romney won among six-figure earners and lost with everyone else.


If it comes to facing millions of voters who work for a living, Romney's in trouble.

Connect: We need leaders who'll fight for the middle class and everyone trying to get in it.

Contrast: Romney wanted to let Michigan's working families fail and he's still demanding more tax giveaways for millionaires like him.

Define: It's no wonder Romney only won among six-figure earners and lost with everyone else -- even in his home state of Michigan.

Remind: In state after state, Romney does worse with voters the closer they get to the average American income.

What it means: Romney's got a regular voter problem: they're on to him and what he stands for and they're not buying it.
