A new study busts harmful myths about white working class men and women.
What is “the white working class,” that much discussed, often criticized demographic group that many say will decide this election? You know them: They’re “bitter” and “cling” to “guns and religion,”  in the (otherwise sympathetic) words of 2008 candidate Barack Obama . Many are members of “the 47 percent” of Americans dependent on government  derided by Mitt Romney , who the Republican insists will vote for Obama – except many don’t know they’re in that moocher class, and plan to vote for Romney.

On the eve of the Republican convention, a senior strategist with a Republican “super PAC,” who would share the group’s strategic thinking only on the condition of anonymity, said Mr. Romney would need a “real surge” and “a reset to the dynamics there” to gain an edge over Mr. Obama in Ohio.
This is why the Republicans have been fighting so hard to eliminate early voting. But they've run into a problem there, too.

...the Republicans had a setback on Friday when a federal judge reversed a new state law that halted early voting on the weekend before Election Day. In 2008, that final weekend was seen as giving Mr. Obama an advantage, especially as African-American churchgoers organized trips to the polls on Sunday.
The early voting accounted for 100,000 ballots in 2008, roughly 2 percent of the total cast. That is no small number in such a hard-fought swing state, especially this year. Republicans said they would appeal the judge’s ruling. theft
