And that 20% who do care is almost all Democrats.
One in five registered voters, largely Democrats and independents, say that Mitt Romney’s wealth makes it less likely that they will support him for president, according to a new poll out Thursday.
Indeed, while 75 percent of voters said that Romney’s riches made no difference in their voting preferences, 20 percent said that it made them less likely to vote for him, reports Gallup.
A small percentage — 4 percent — said that Romney’s wealth made it more likely that they would vote for him.
“As you know Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has a net worth of over 200 million dollars. Does the fact that he is this rich make you more likely or less likely to vote for him, or does it make no difference?” the question from Gallup read.
The bulk of those who were less likely to support Romney due to his wealth comes from Democrats and independents. 37 percent of Democrats and 19 percent of Democrats said that Romney’s wealth made them less likely to vote for him.
