Romney does well with irresponsible moocher voters; Where does he go from here? Eastwood’s quote of the day (read-this roundup)


(Charles Dharapak/Associated Press)

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.”

Al Kamen, an award-winning columnist on the national staff of The Washington Post, created the “In the Loop” column in 1993.
