Okay, let me call his bluff. What statistics allow you to draw the
conclusion that LF's base is at all pb. If anything, it seems like the
average NOI member is working-class to the core. The people who attend
his rallies are not shopkeepers, dentists, college professors. They are
bus-drivers, autoworkers, shipping clerks, aren't they?
