USA Today has an interesting article about the Romney-for-President strategy, a step-by-step methodical approach to running which will be employed by people who’ve done it before.
But we already knew that Gov. Romney’s operation was top-notch and strategic. This analysis, however, struck me:
Romney fared best in the East and West; Palin in the South. His strongest showing was among voters with a college degree or more; hers was among those with only some college education or less. He led among those with an annual income of $75,000 or more; she led among those with income of $30,000 or less. She had a slight edge among the most frequent churchgoers.
So a contest between the two might well be something of a class war. It could pit younger, more socially conservative voters for Palin against more traditional Republican voters — older, wealthier and economic conservatives — for Romney.
Did you notice that? Palin had only a slight edge among frequent church goers. I just thought that was interesting.
Another cool item from the same article? This quote from Scott Brown:
“If you want to fix a broken economy, let me give you a piece of advice,” Brown told them. “You have to listen to governor Mitt Romney.” Brown called him “a unique leader” and “a very, very dear friend.”
