Bachman isn't going anywhere. Her and Perry will split the born again vote so Romney will win.

Utah Dem

Every candidate including the incumbent keep 'telling' us they are going to fix the economy but one of my concerns is - do these men and women truly know what the average citizen faces in the economy?
Do these wealthy candidates understand what it is like to try to stretch the pay check for two weeks or a month?
Do they get it that there is just no more income but every business seems to want more of your take home? Every utilities want just a little increase; gas prices fluctuate constantly, food seems to always be on the rise, to name a few.
Preventative medicine is a thing of the past, we go to the doctor or dentist when we really need to, unless of course someone else is supporting you.
Perry was born into wealth, as was Huntsman, and Romney, Obama struck it rich with his book(s), etc. Bachmann is not doing too bad in the economic department either.
Don't tell me you are going to fix the economy but please tell me how you will fix the economy.
