    Any sort of propaganda must be directed to the middle classes, as this class is the only one with average intelligence (enough to understand the propaganda), greatest in number, and they will see it, because they always going out to work, they are all able to vote.

    Rich people don't get influenced by propaganda they are usually smart enough to know all propaganda is bs, they are just a few, and they don't have to work not to mention they don’t care who gets elected e.g.

    “The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” Benjamin Disraeli (first Jewish Prime Minister of England)

    “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” Felix Frankfurter

    "It doesn't matter who the people voted for, they always vote for us." -Joseph Stalin

    “If you’re dumb enough to vote, you’re f*cking dumb enough to believe them. ” Chris Hannah

    poor people are usually too stupid to be influenced by the propaganda, they can’t read, they can’t make up their minds and they don’t care about anything politics say, but if they vote they are far too easy to convince so there’s nothing to worry about if they are going to vote they can’t be predicted, if middle class counts on you, you are counting on your victory, poor people don’t understand what the TV says about economics or what is actually happening in the country, sometimes they watch reality shows, news about violence and gore, but they never question the things they see.
