[T]he Investor Class gap … exists for all Democratic candidates. Bush leads Dean 51% to 33% among Investors and 40% to 35% among non-Investors. …
Just under half of all Americans belong to the Investor Class. Investors are more likely than others to vote, so they make up nearly 60% of the voting public.
I wonder how many of those polled know that Dean is a third generation stock broker? That he grew up in Manhattan and worked on Wall Street before going to medical school? That he balanced budgets in Vermont, paid down debt, created a rainy day fund? (My guess: few, if any.)
I’d love to see the results of this poll if it were done in the same vein as, say, Clark’s “blind bio” poll against Bush. (To refresh: Zogby ran a poll where Clark’s bio — not his name, but his bio — was run against Bush. Clark won.)
