The US added roughly 1.1 million NEW millionaires.

The number of millionaires in the US grew roughly 29% under Obama.

This is why many of Obama supporters are wealthy.

My family is in the top bracket and we support Obama.

A strong middle-class means a strong business environment.

And how many more fell below the poverty level? The more truthful article would be if they named them and told how they got there. Off of other's suffering? Or by bail-out? Hard work? Inquiring minds want to know.....

How many people disappeared from the work force? Is that a more important number?

Clearly the OP didnt read his own link

The number of new US millionaires fell following the financial crisis. At the end of 2011 there were just over 5.1m millionaires in the United States – 165,360 fewer than in 2007, before Obama's election and the worst of the financial crisis. The recent rise in stock markets and signs of a recovery in real estate mean the number of millionaires will be back to pre-recession levels by the end of 2012
