Billionaires' Election Freak Show

In 2012 presidential campaigns were simpler. Politicians ‘mansplained’ women’s reproductive systems and attack adverts flooded the airwaves. Behind it all, a handful of billionaires spent millions on Mitt Romney. And it was not enough to stop Barack Obama from winning.

Description

In 2012 presidential campaigns were simpler. Politicians ‘mansplained’ women’s reproductive systems, cultural issues led the way, and attack adverts flooded the airwaves. But behind it all, a handful of billionaires spent millions of dollars on Mitt Romney. And it was not enough to stop Barack Obama from winning a second term in the White House.

Democrats learned in 2004 it wasn’t enough to be against George Bush, they had to be FOR John Kerry. Republicans were not as quick a study. They were against Obama, but they could not persuade enough people to vote FOR the Governor. Romney’s 47% remark came back to haunt him as he got 0% of the African American vote, lost Hispanics by 60 points, and women by 30.

Only rich, white men supported him, but he needed 62% of them to win and fell far short. We explain how it all happened.
