Economic class and the 2012 Presidential election

Below are two sets of data about
– the income and wealth of the major candidates for the 2012 election compared to the median income and median wealth of the U.S. population

Prompt: Using these data sets, what interpretations can plausibly be formed regarding the relationship between economic class and the 2012 Presidential election? What are the implications of the data for the two major theories (pluralist, class domination) of political
power? Your essay should draw upon lecture and readings in the course books; the length should be no less than one page and no more than two. Your homework is due Friday, December 5 by 11pm via the course and turnitin.com.
