Again, it's one thing to want to reduce government spending on lower class benefits. It's another thing to couch that in disgust for people who are reliant on government. That is elitism and one you don't see from the left because they are at least smart enough to know what a dent that puts on their reputation. The right is fighting an image of being out of touch and unsympathetic to the lower class and accusatory to the point of practically showing disgust. That doesn't help the party's reputation one bit.
The right is simply not as effective at marketing. The left plays to the left hip and cons the simpleminded into believing they are regular guys fighting the evil rich. They are Al Sharpton with big money and media backing. They feed on the poor and need them to stay poor while selling the scam they are on their side~
