  • No, the income level does not correlate with the political leaning.

  • Poverty level, although I work. Although I am not a member of any political party, I identify much more strongly with the Republican party and most often will vote Republican.

  • No, I'm not but I know people who make that much and more. They are conservative. I don't like or appreciate the fact that dems have made the wealthy seem bad. How does George Soros, the Hollywood elite, and the other rich dems rationalize this? George Soros is worth billions and backs every left wing blog/media outlet he can to defeat the conservatives. He is what he claims to hate. How does that work? That is what I'm confused about.

  • According to Medicaid 150% below poverty. So I guess poverty is something to strive for in my case. LOL

  • @Anouck: Every one in this country is able to have health care. Some have to pay for it, some don't. Not all PA receivers are lazy bums but, some are. Some women don't get married so, they can keep their medicaid and FS. The "haves" do help the "have nots" but, they should have to fund their food, medical and housing. There are places for people to sleep other than the streets, they are called shelters. Our country can not afford to give every one, everything they need at some point they will have to get it on their own.

    As for the OQ:: I think we are working poor. We are just fine though. We want for nothing.

  • Currently in poverty. Usually in working poor. I am a liberal/Independent. I don't believe my status effects my political leanings.

  • I think you'll be sad to find that most of the conservatives that participate here are not the 1% elite that people love to stereotype republicans to be. Especially considering how many are small business owners or self employed and being hardest hit by this recession.
