Obama Going On Blue-Collar Bus Tour

Obama Going On Blue Collar Bus Tour

President Obama first bus tour of the 2012 campaign will take him to several cities in battleground states like Ohio and Pennsylvania to court, specifically, male, blue-collar workers. While the latest average of polls by RealClearPolitics shows that Obama has a 2.6 percentage-point lead over Republican opponent Mitt Romney, both in Ohio and the country, his biggest followings come from women and Hispanic voters. Working-class men, apparently, have not been claimed as a demographic by either candidate, hence the road trip. β€œThe ability of the president to win over blue-collar men is more tied to the reality of the moment: are jobs being created and do people feel more optimistic?” said a Democratic strategist. β€œFor him, the proof is somewhat in the pudding.”
