But Obama carried upper-income voters by 6 points. And he's proposing tax cuts for middle-income voters, who are the only group that voted for McCain.

That was a general comment - Dogbert has highlighted an important principle of democracy there

As an aside - American politics don't make any more sense to outsiders than Japanese poitics do. I'm very selective about making comments about the details (rather than the principles) because I lack the necessary knowledge to do so.

Barack Obama got the job, took the oath, and I'm more than happy to assume he'll be a worthy President of the USA. But I don't want to try to map his intentions based on voter classifications. I'm going with what he says and does in his new role

If you put your country in your profile then people will know where you're posting from and that will help them interpret your posts.
