President Obama has invited Mitt Romney to a private lunch at the White House tomorrow, which officially makes Romney part of the 47% who just want “free stuff” from the President.
His share of the popular vote, which stuck around 49 percent on election night, continued to fall as votes came in. Last week Greg Sargent rang the alarm, warning/gloating that Romney might sink below 47.5 percent of the vote. Yesterday, Aaron Blake announced Romney's arrival at 47.4 percent, and started rounding down. I gave the guy more time. But now, via David Wasserman's invaluable chart, we can make it official: Romney is down to 47.43 percent of the vote, making it impossible to round up. He is the 47 percent.
