Mitt Romney is declaring that his presidential campaign supports "the 100% in America." That's in response to criticism sparked by a video in which he says that as a candidate he doesn't worry about the 47% of Americans who pay no income taxes.
Romney said during a Miami forum hosted by the Spanish language TV network Univision that his campaign will focus on those voters he thinks he can win over.
The Republican nominee backed away from his support earlier in the year for policies that would promote what he called "self-deportation" of illegal immigrants.
He told the Univision audience that illegal immigrants would not be rounded up and deported but that a long-term solution is needed. He didn't offer any details about what that solution might be.
The former Massachusetts governor spoke two days after a video emerged that showed him telling donors last May that as a candidate for president, "my job is not to worry about" 47% of Americans who don't earn enough to pay income taxes.
