A majority of likely voters believe that Mitt Romney doesn’t care about their needs and problems, according to a new poll released Tuesday from Quinnipiac University. Respondents believe that Obama cares about their needs and problems by a 22-point margin, 60 percent to 38 percent. In contrast, a majority, 51 percent to 46 percent, believe Romney doesn’t care.
The results mirror recent polls showing voters believe Romney’s policies will benefit the rich rather than the middle class — a significant problem for the Republican candidate.
The poll was conducted Sept. 25 – 30 among 1,912 likely voters nationwide and has a margin of error of +/- 2.2 percent.
