Insta-Poll of Delegates

60 percent think if you make $500,000 or more you are "rich."

Jimmy P. at the DNC—I took a poll of 24 Democratic delegates. I asked them how much money a person had to make a year to be considered "rich." Their choices were $250k or more, $500k or more, $750k or more, or $1 million or more. The results: 38 percent said $250k, 13 percent said $500k, 25 percent said $750k and 25 percent said $1 million. What's interesting about this is that their candidate sees $250,000 as the magic level at which wealthy people need to pay higher taxes. But 60 percent of Obama's own delegates don't seem to think that level of income makes one wealthy. I'll have a new poll tomorrow.
