To DC Elitist Gloria Borger, People Earning $30k-$50k/year = College Students!

Last night on CNN, when discussing the exit poll results showing Ron Paul winning among voters who earn between $30k and $50k per year, DC elitist Gloria Borger characterized these folks as "college kids."

This is how out of touch they are in the taxpayer-subsidized Beltway Bubble. The median earnings of all Americans falls between $30k and $50k, yet in DC they think that this is what a typical college student earns?

If anyone has a You Tube clip of this, please post!

What about the guy in the SC

What about the guy in the SC group who said if "it's not Paul then I'm voting for Obama", everyone was shocked. I'd love to see that clip.

Spinning or Clueless

Yea I thought the same thing when I saw that.

Sometimes it's hard to tell when they are in spin mode or truly clueless.

It's like "lets show some data, then while they are looking at it, let's make up some BS about what it means."

Sadly, the average MSM viewer is brain dead when seeing these reports and just soaks it up.

Here's what Household's took

Here's what Household's took in for 2010 nationally and in new hampshire. Remember that's household, so likely more than one income!

2010 Median U.S. Household --> $50,046
2010 Median New Hampshire Household --> $61,042.
(*Median is not average, it is the middle number where 50% of population are above, and 50% of population are below)

absolutely out of touch!

more like $5-10/k year, if they can find a job.

and with the price of college sky-rocketing, even community colleges cost about that (esp when factoring in books @$200 each).

So more than likely most students make a net gain of ZERO.
