Who is more likely to vote? Unemployment or welfare recipients?


Even though the number of people is far larger of welfare recipients, ( in some form ) I,m guessing more unemployment people will vote. I'm talking numbers, not %. I believe economic issues are very important to unemployment people because they want work. They have proven that by being eligible for UC in the first place. Many (not all) welfare people are satisfied with the way things are therefore not feeling that voting is necessary. Politically incorrect, but accurate. Tell me I'm right. Tell me I'm wrong.

    I agree Kimberly. People on Government assistance do get a bad wrap. The people in charge have turned it into an "us" vs "them" and no one seems to notice it. Comments regarding government assistance become an attack on individuals that are using it.

    I am in the same position, but does that make the difference whether you vote or not?

    That is a good story. People like that deserve assistance and it is good to see them putting it to good use, instead of buying all junk. I don't agree that people shouldn't be able to splurge, but they really should be making healthy options instead.

    These are the cases that welfare is there for. Not a woman that continues to have babies or a dead beat dad that doesn't pay his child support. Unfortunately, the latter is more common.

    I can't see how anyone could leave things as they are and I find it so hard to believe with so many people we see online and yahoo big time saying they have had enough of Obama but polls show him ahead? I think poll talk is all lies.

    Unemployment is not a reward; it's insurance. Workers pay into it every hour they work. I am not questioning anyone's character. Just their motivation to vote.
