I know. It’s shocking, but according to the Pew Research Center:

“Among registered voters who prefer a larger government, 83 percent support President Barack Obama, while only 12 percent prefer Mitt Romney. Conversely, 65 percent of respondents who say they desire a smaller government intend to vote for Romney, compared with 29 percent who give the nod to Obama. The results are consistent with a Pew survey in June that found a comparable divide between Obama and Romney supporters over the role of the government in the economy.”

Someone remind me again why Mitt Romney’s 47% comments were so offensive and off the mark? A larger government means more dependency. More dependency and more welfare means a smaller wealth creator class and soon we’re looking a number much larger than 47%.
