Mitt Romney and the Gallup Organization agree: Obama's got the 47%:
A thought: this is where we find out just how much like 1980 this election is going to be. If you'll recall, Reagan was pretty tough about "welfare queens." He was insensitive and dismissive and he was going to turn a lot of voters off.
But he didn't back down.
And while it's true that a lot of Americans who do not pay federal taxes are students or the elderly, I'm willing to bet that they understand exactly what Mitt Romney was getting at.
If he doesn't back down.
