A new Washington Post-ABC News Poll indicates that the middle class and small businessmen see President Obama as supportive of their interests.
At the same time, the polls indicate that Congressional Republicans are perceived as in league with Wall Street financial institutions and large business corporations.
The middle class issue is won by Obama by 53 -35, while the small business question sees a 48-39 lead for the President.
Meanwhile, majorities across party lines see the Republicans as more concerned about big business and Wall Street.
One would think this would reverberate in Obama’s favor as the country tries to deal with the Debt Ceiling crisis, and will backfire on the Republicans, because the vast majority of the country is not in agreement with the Tea Party Movement that is controlling the House of Representatives majority, to the chagrin of Speaker John Boehner, although he has carefully avoided any comments on the subject!
