Cut spending while 18% want increased spending.
The same poll shows 59% want the government to cut taxes while 27% one taxes rice.
These numbers indicate -- trouble is in store for -- Obama's class warfare strategy listen to this exchange.
I think this this narrative of the class warfare.
You know that that the richer -- import import.
It pits Americans against them against each other and it is frankly on America don't think it's an award for -- Olympic -- is it's true the top 10%.
Have really seen their fortunes increase dramatically in the last fifteen years she had to appeal to people's better angels and they -- the same Gallup report I keep quoting defense that couldn't get 82% of Americans care most.
Think that -- the prevailing message needs to be hope and opportunity.
Yet they don't want the negative that want -- -- -- I think most Americans -- -- get offended that top 10% by the way or it doesn't quite.
Joining us now to analyze here in studio Kellyanne Conway a Republican pollster and from Columbia, South Carolina Dick -- -- -- chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party so this horrible the end.
It's gotta be bad news for mr.
Obama -- even Tom Brokaw is an on board with the class warfare fright right.
Well I think it's you know -- class warfare thing is it's a term everybody uses but.
But it's a practical matter what the American people CBS up poll just a month ago showed.
That most Americans two out of three Americans believe that the wealthiest ought to pay their fair share.
The wealthiest Americans people make over a million dollars a year.
Wrote off over the last three years 22 billion dollars in gambling losses that we all understand that's not -- further the what top 1%.
With the bush tapped tax cuts got eight who get a 66000.
Dollar a year tax cut.
While the Republicans -- we want we can play these numbers game is all you want but I'll -- -- the top 5% pay 40% of all taxes in the top 10% that you point out.
-- somewhere around 70% of all what I was put to assist them.
Let me put it it is -- the average American works until April 1 to pay their taxes their wife and their time is important of them.
As a rich person -- hedge fund manager that works till February 1.
Now this is like back the civil war people bought that -- people bought their way out of out of having to serve their country the question is is their patriotic duty to support -- to support this country.
The average Americans working three months a year to support government the rich guys.
Nor can probably handle that right go ahead therein lies the problems our -- we actually mean.
Add cost -- government days together we're working well into may the average person to pay off all of the types of cat and the deficit and certainly our tax I think that the point is that this is a very -- -- cheap way to score political points.
-- -- terrible corrosive -- present nine seats to govern a country week is our president.
Who wants to represent all people not just the ones that he thinks aren't rich or he thinks should be taxed more and this is gone from hoping change and aspiration.
To really consulting feds sound bites and I think he's info on reelection mode and it's it's not going to work Dick I can't tell you.
How many times I've heard the president and at the White House that the administration using millionaires billionaires and corporate jet owners meanwhile.
He's out there campaigning he's fundraising he's raising money from those millionaires billionaires and corporate general owners left and right at the taxpayer dime.
These were using Air Force One to get to these places.
What is there's many many millionaires and billionaires support.
The present position pay more taxes Warren Buffett's one of them this idea they somehow more all the billionaires and all the millionaires don't want to be patriotic and don't want to contribute by the way.
Pres Obama is also for cutting the federal deficit dramatically.
It did this to pieces this cutting the deficit cutting spending the same time we've got to plug those loopholes and make sure everybody pays their fair share.
Equity bottle -- would you go back to -- everybody did great on the go that way.
I'm Bill Clinton the next -- -- and respond -- -- but I agree with you yes cutting the deficit great.
The problem I'm having is I am mr.
Obama -- -- spending he doesn't and -- actually away and what is sixteenth fairways a script and just say I think congress and I'm sure millions of people watching doing you talking to people.
Who are being punished by this president because -- actually work hard and -- a dime in your climate unpatriotic.
Because they don't pay every last dollar and you can't squeeze every last dollar out of the -- so called rich.
Don't call us unpatriotic don't call keep -- 95%.
Now back to the original point what is president Obama's tax -- -- -- growth plan.
What is his planned actually slash the deficit.
This is -- -- has -- -- this is why the Republicans.
Who are running all with the exception a Romney loss is that he is aware taxiway with -- to -- pay their fair share they'll have a flat tax plan.
They all have a growth in all time -- prosperity and opportunity.
Did -- the cost of food feel heating your home.
It unemployment all of these -- -- under President Obama as is poverty you don't reduce poverty by trying to tax the rich and the viewers are Smart.
