I was just on opensecrets and saw that Romney’s top 8 employers of contributors are large banks. I am curious about why the banks would desire Romney so much more eapecially since Obama has eatablished a record of being pro-Wall St and even Romney’s rhetoric, sincere or not, has shifted against the Fed and Wall St.
For the reasons mentioned so far. Initially the banks were still close to Obama I think. Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase was considered a possibility for the treasury for some time but things turned a bit sour between them. I think Dodd-Frank wasn’t too popular either.
The one I find the most damning though is Jeffrey Immelt who was paraded by Obama initially and now Immelt is going for Romney which is a bit embarrassing for Obama.
