Red states are growing income much faster than blue states. Personal income has grown 4.6% n 23 red states since the recession began in December, 2007. Income is up just 0.5% in 15 blue states in that same time frame.

Republican governors in states like Ohio, Florida, Michigan, and Wisconsin have begun to turn those states around. According to the polls, Obama will get credit for all of that.

With all this evidence to show what Obama policies portent for the country with four more years of Obama, how can he be doing so well in the  polls?

Here’s you answer. In the same time frame used to measure the states’ income growth, the Federal government has increased payments to individuals 25%.

That 25% tells you why Obama will win the election. It tells you why the debt and deficit has gone through the roof. It tells you why Romney wasn’t far off on the 47% comment that he is paying dearly for making.

It tells you that we are on the brink of socialism. Four more years will get it done.
