Meg Whitman = Goldman Sachs

Meg Whitman is currently spending a small fortune trying to win California’s Republican primary for governor. Her primary opponent, Steve Poizner, is out with a new, brutal ad tying her directly to Goldman Sachs. Poizner’s goal appears to be to make Californians think “Goldman Sachs” every time they hear the name “Meg Whitman.”

It is a sign of just how incredibly unpopular Wall Street is around the country that being connected to a big Wall Street firm is viewed as a huge liability in a Republican primary. Expect this “Meg Whitman = Goldman Sachs” attack against Whitman to continue, even if she beats Poizner in the primary.
