Romney does well with irresponsible moocher voters; Where does he go from here? Eastwood opines (read-this roundup)

(Charles Dharapak - Associated Press)
Here’s what the Loop is reading Wednesday morning.

Who are the 47 percent, and who did they vote for? Fine analysis by our colleagues David Farenthold and Ed O’Keefe — and great charts. Turns out that about one- third of the non-income taxed moochers making $20,000 or less voted for Romney. And 39 percent of those earning between $20,000 and $35,000 voted for him.

See? They already love you, man.

What can Mitt do from here? Solid advice from some veteran GOP hands in a playbook for him by Karen Tumulty, who warns that “the time and opportunities . . . to right things are short and few.”

Quote of the Day: Hat tip to The Reliable Source for keeping up with the incomparable Clinton Eastwood, who said of his Tampa Chair Chat: ”If somebody’s dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they’re gonna have to take what they get.”
