The Republican Electorate And The Raging Marxists Over At Fortune

Why does the Republican electorate favor rich people?

Why would a poor or middle-class Republican voter want either Donald Trump or Carly Fiorina in the White House? Trump and Fiorina have no idea what it is like to live paycheck to paycheck. I don't understand why the 99% supports the 1%.

Carly Fiorina has risen from the Kids' Table debate to #2 in the polls behind Trump. It's not surprising that two successful businesspeople would top the list for a party that practically worships business prowess. Well they're two businesspeople, anyway. As the raging Marxists over at Fortune point out, Carly Fiorina was pretty much shit as the CEO of HP and in the decade since her firing nobody in the corporate world has touched her with a ten-foot pole. Trump, as everyone with the ability to read knows, has done literally nothing except inherit a large sum of money from his father and manipulate the U.S. bankruptcy code to his advantage. This raises a pertinent question about the Republican electorate: If they want to vote for businesspeople, can't they at least find one who wasn't a complete failure?
Failures as businesspeople, yet they are very rich failures.

Does anyone remember that George W. Bush was a failure at business before he was a failure at the Presidency?
