Romney.  Obama could win him but he's not going to be pushing for the votes of dudes like this.

How will this 99%er vote?

- Born 1973 in Newport, KY

- Working-class

- Lost a job in 2010

- Pro-Second Amendment

- White male

How would you guess such a person would vote?

Limited info, but lean Romney.  White, working class, and pro-gun makes Romney the slightly more acceptable candidate.  Both Romney and Obama are conspicuously elite, so I think they'll ultimately go against the relatively unpopular black guy.  In the aggregate, a fairly event split - I'd reverse King's 54-45 to favor Romney.

Then I happen to know Romney is going to be in for a big disappointment.

Well, you left out a lot of information, like the underpinnings of your -10.00 economic matrix score.

I wasn't answering for you, of course, but the other people who are similarly situated on the items you called out.

Yes, assuming Austin is white rather than Asian, 2 votes for Obama (the two women), and 2 for Mittens is the odds on favorite.

This hypothetical person is gay, atheist, late middle age, "successful" lawyer, Anglo, lives in a suburb, reads a lot on a wide range of topics, has an MBA, supports gun control and gay marriage, thinks public employees are overpaid in general, and is burnt out on US foreign adventures.

This person is pretty much the Tea Party's image of a stereotypical Obama voter.

This really shouldn't go on the 2012 board. I'm not really sure where it should go, but not here.

Here's what I'll do. This thread, along with the other "how will these hypothetical people vote?" threads, will be merged together into a combined thread where everyone can propose hypothetical people and discuss how they'll vote and why. I might keep it here, might move it to What-if board. But regardless, that's what I'mma do now.
