30. We are working class, blue collar
voters (my dh is an union electrician and I am an RN) -- we are voting Obama. We can't understand why any blue collar voter would vote for her. We are in NY and if we have to write him in we will. We've already had Bush for the last 8 years, we are tired of this nasty self interest lying screw the voters meme.
