Winner of the Debate: Joe the Plumber

La Opinin, Posted: Oct 16, 2008

LOS ANGELES -- A new star emerged yesterday: Joe the plumber, the name that the aspirant Republican John McCain gave the middle class, writes Gabriel Lerner for La Opinin. The middle class has found itself at the center of the 2008 election campaign, writes Lerner: The average American. A worker in the automotive industry in Detroit. The teacher who does not win enough. The owner of the house he is losing. Yet analysts interviewed by Lerner added that the concerns of the Latino community have remained absent from the presidential debates. In her electoral blog, La Opinin political editor Pilar Marerro writes that last nights debates focus on Joe the plumber a real voter whom Obama spoke with recently was a clear attempt by McCain to regain the voters he needs: the white middle and working class.
