1:00 pm
you can understand why it's so high as well. we tallied the results. you said murphy, the bull, on whole foods won that debate. >> he took all the time. final trade. >> directv. >> bp. >> doc? >> mpw. >> thank you, "power lunch" starts now. investors in the bit of a selling mood. what are bonds saying about the future of stocks? bubble trouble, a number of major names soaring to new lofty levels. the names you need to watch. apple shares. for the first time since november of 2012. the tech giant winning several battles in courtrooms, but is
1:01 pm
apple actually losing the smartphone war? we'll explain that. first to sue. a little nervous tone to the mark today. investors nervous with wall street getting more negative about growth estimates, and super tuesday may be in danger, the s&p 500 has risen 15 of the last 17 tuesday this is year. so right now we're in danger of losing that. the dow jones industrial average up 78 points, s&p 500 off 7 3/4, the three-year note, which is at auction today, the yield right in and out is at 0.886%. we should get the results momentarily. we did dip below the 2.6 mark earlier this morning when those jitters were more extreme. bob pisani joins me here on the floor. >> it's a little tough for the markets, because we're still held hostage by the ten-year yield. sue is right. when we drift below 2.6%, the
1:02 pm
market has no energy, we're essentially there right now, but look at the s&p 500, you'll see what i mean. we've got largely down all day. we've been at that 2.6 and below it. you can see it goes nowhere. if the yield would go up, the stock market would rally, i can assure you. i'm not a geez union or genies. >> but working in an inversion relationship. >> it's as simple as that. the stock of the day is twitter. folks we're near 80 million shares trading shares. the lockup has expired today. it originally went public $26 a share. forget that. the insiders own this at 2.20. that's the average price. somebody is selling. remember gundlact saying single house been was over.
1:03 pm
and that's really the only news that's still out there. >> interestsly enough, he also said apple will go north of 600, maybe not much north, but we're sigh that play out. >> let's close with a bang. we've some weakness in europe, largely back barclays came out and said they have the same problems as jpmorgan. with weak bond and occurrencely commodity trading trading a major part of the revenue stream for a lot of these banks, deutsche bank as well, and remember a lot of these banks are being limited now, even in the u.s., they can't trade on their own accounts because of the parts of the dodd/frank bill as well. so this may be a long-term issue. >> and some of the european banks report this week, too. breaking news in the bond mark. the three-year note is up for auction. how did we do, ricky? >> i'm going to give this
1:04 pm
auction a b. i know i told the boys in the control room a b-minus. first of all, 29 billion three-year note. the one issue market was trading back and forth between 0.935 and 0.925. we somewhat came in right there in the middle. even arguably better off. so that wasn't bad. the bid to cover, better than an ten auction average, it was a bit weak on the indirects at 28.1 below the 34%, but direct is one of the best sin february '13. we always like to see when the dealers do not take a big jump. that means investor took the big, dealers about 47.5% of this auction. a b, not a bad auction, one of the higher yields you'll see in the three-year note. sue, tyler, back to you.
1:05 pm
shoe investors be concerned or not? art hogan is at oner lick securities, and cohead of fixed income. art, nice to see you again. we saw each other last night at a celebration for larry kudlow. first of all, what do you think the bond market is tell you about stocks? should we be worried about the stock market right now? >> i would certainly be concerned if the bond market was reflecting a prediction that the economy was going to continue the pace we saw in the first quarter, and we're slowing down, not speeding up. i think what the bond market, especially the yield on the ten-year is reflecting issee on politics. we're concerned about tensions, ukraine, russia acceleration. that rhetoric continues to pick up. it's hard to envision an easy way out of that situation, tarmt it's reflecting dynamics. you know, defensive dead
1:06 pm
issuance, the government by and large a chunk of this. you've got three dynamics that are going on. unrelated to it being a barometer of the pace of the u.s. economy. so i think that's less of a concern. the market is not going to rally and make a new high when the ten-year yield is sitting where it is. >> what can you add to it, the geopolitical risk, i certainly understand, but the bond market seems to be telling us a slightly different story that is the stocks are telling us. >> well, i hate consensus, but i have to agree with a lot of what art said. we do think that the fact that the federal reserve has engaged in a policy where they bought up most of the supply or stock of the high quality assets out there is having an impact. we do think that there's a divergence between the long term and the short term here. i think the long-term effects of fed policy, keeping funding costs at zero for over five years has made risk assets generally overpriced.
1:07 pm
>> the short term, what we have been seeing going on there's big buy-side firms, and i think that will have an impact and it's going to make it look like the bond market is negative over the near term, but we certainly think the first quarter gdp growth is not indicative of growth going forward. we would describe the employment report as the rodney dangerfield of employment reports. it was much better than people give them credit for. >> if you were to deploy capital into the market, what stocks or sectors still hold value for you? >> i think that this transsis from momentum or growth to value is going to continue. i think we want to look at the energy sector. gulfport is one of our favorite
1:08 pm
names there, certainly the regional banks in the south. and they're all doing a great job of increasing loan growth. we're seeing demands for growth, that's indicative of what could be a pickup. >> all right, guys, thank you very much. art, a pleasure. larry, come back and join us soon. bubble trouble, red flags being waved on a number of stock that is have soared well ahead of their valuations. dominic chu naming names. what do we mean here? they're injures selling at high p.e.s? >> they're selling at high p.e. david einhorn made allusions to this. we talked about smell names in the amazons, the netflix, here's three names, they're larger cap names, but ones you may not have heard of in terms of the bubble
1:09 pm
talk. bushelitiousness. >> here's the first one, tyler. this is a mystery chart, october? this particular company has a price to earnings ratio of 351. this is a hollywood company, but it's not netflix, and it deals with original content on the animation side. it is a studio. i will give you that much. it looks a bit -- >> how to train a dragon? is it dreamworks? >> it is dreamworks. >> the chart looks a bit like batman's headdress right there. so dreamworks one of those companies that some investors may think of as bubblicious. >> you think? >> here's another one. this company has a pretty decent up side. and just as art said. some are moving out of growth into value stocks.
1:10 pm
this company deals more for certainly parts of the market 1,237 times earnings. >> that's a little stretch. >> it could be. this stock in particular deals a little in satellite communications. this is a company that does more along that line, so make -- >> it's not dish, is it? >> no, check out what it is. tab tab lo software. >> that's the problem. you threw me off. i would have gotten that. >> absolutely right. this ipo just last year in may, about 1200 times earnings. so here is the one -- >> is that forward earnings. >> trails earnings nchts i thought it was forward. >> here's the next one. >> 1500 times earnings, satellite communications. it's not dish, but it operates satellite and has a broadband service as well. it was a huge name back in the
1:11 pm
late '80s, early to mid '90s, echo star. think hughes, echostar. >> you told me. all right. got it. >> it's up 50%, but it trades at a lofty valuation. these are all companies in the mid to large cap range. it's not just the amazons and netflixs. >> dom, thank you very much. always worth looking at those valuations. sue, down to you. >> thanks, guys. >> major news from the auto industry. while gm trying to navigate the recall crisis, rival chrysler unveiling the five-year growth plan. phil lebeau is here with details. >> hard to believe five years ago fiat took over chrysler. well, they have done something with it and no sergio is now laying out the next five years, revolving around the jeep brand. they are on track to sell more than 1 million jeeps worldwide
1:12 pm
this years, and they'll be expanding production over the next four years to six countries. look sales of jeep sales from 2009, to. almost 2 million vehicles expected to be sold worldwide. that's the positive story. for fans of the minivan, well, this shouldn't come as a surprise, but it's not great news. the dodge caravan will be going out of production starting in 2015. now, the town & country will still remain around, so that will le chrysler's only minivan. by the way, the chrysler brand plans to double global sales by '18. after the bell today, fiat chrysler reporting first quarter numbers. as has been the case for the last severity, most are expecting the positive news to be from the chrysler side of the house. and there will definitely be a lot of questions, tyler regarding the fiat chrysler ipo
1:13 pm
that's expected to happen later this year. tyler? >> phil, hang in there with us. we're going to bring in senior ander jessica carwell, from good to have you with us. phil detailed how chrysler has been doing. i want to get your view on it. we know about the ram trucks. we've just learned they're going to stop making the dodge caravan. what else is working for chrysler right now? >> they've had 49 months of year over year sales growth, so that's good. i think what they have done is they've tried to expand into different markets. there still is pent-up demand, they've been successful there. that will not work forever. theys only need a brand renaissance. the jeep has been compared to chrysler doing doing very well. the world really wants suvs,
1:14 pm
places you wouldn't expect want suvs. jeep is primed to take that here in the united states and abroad. >> i'm curious to why jeep is doing as well as it seemsingly is. >> you've got new models, tyler, but my recollection is on some of the measures, they don't score particularly well. >> they're better than they used to be. that's the bottom line. they used to be really, really down at the bottom when it came to reliability, and frankly in terms of styling, you would get into a jeep about five years ago and say, i like it from the outside, i don't like it on the inside, and i don't like the way it drives. you look at the other models, they're a huge improvement from where they were. as jessica mentioned, the world wants suvs, and when you look at the growth plan for china, that is the key here. they have very little presence. they're going to grow like crazy. >> their remake of the grand cherokee i would call aggressive styling, either you like it or don't. >> yeah. >> i want to play some tape from
1:15 pm
last night, jim cramer, talking about gm. >> as much as gm keeps getting hid with bad press. with high-profile resignation, in the original recall, i think this is one of those crucial moments where you have to be a buyer, not a seller. that's right. i'm telling you to buy. >> do you? >> yeah, i think so. i think that there's so much -- a lot of negative press, but they're still selling cars. people are still looking at general motors vehicles across all of the brandt, so it looks like a disconnect. so i think if that's the kay for the full, i don't think what
1:16 pm
there is not to like. >> always good to see you. dominic? >> pfizer moving to session lows, over the next decade, this after a short-term drop, plunging into a disruptive merger. what the heck is going on down here? >> i don't know. >> all of a sudden we started hearing screaming buy buy buy. >> that was four years ago today, the flash crash of 2010, which rocked the u.s. stock market. the dow plunged almost 1,000 points in a matter of minutes before it turned.
1:17 pm

1:19 pm
what is this place? where are we? this is where we bring together reliably fast internet and the best in entertainment. we call it the x1 entertainment operating system. it looks like the future! we must have encountered a temporal vortex. further analytics are necessary. beam us up. ♪ that's my phone. hey. [ female announcer ] the x1 entertainment operating system. only from xfinity. tv and internet together like never before. everyone else is watching and seeing these big numbers and their confidence gets affected. >> they are ping-ponging back off each other. >> people are seeing this and the memories of fear are coming back.
1:20 pm
>> what is going on here? all of a sudden we are hearing screaming "buy buy buy." >> dow jones industrial average dropped more than 900 points. >> the markets didn't work. fear came back in the market in a very big way. >> the general public has not been willing to get -- >> what a moment that was. today marks four years sinces the big flash crash. have things changed? are the markets any safer? let's bring in bob pisani and kenny policy c p.m. olcari. has anything fundamentally changed that leads you believe from your work that things are fundamentally different and/or safer?
1:21 pm
>> the s.e.c. has put in a lot of reforming to try to prevent this thing from happening. but many flash crashes all the time. and since then what have we seen. we've seen the facebook fail, we've seen the bats cave in, we've seat the night capital nightmare. all these things have clever names now, even the terrible tweet from that hoax a.p. tweet happened and the market dove on that and then bounced up when people realized it was a hoax. so we've kind of gotten used to these. >> i know how you feel about
1:22 pm
this, but has anything fundamentally changed? >> i think from a fundamental point of view, the s.e.c. has fixed that problem, right? don't forget we had two rule sets when that happened. and it was the failure of those two rule sets that caused or exacerbated that problem. >> today once the primary -- everyone stops traiting so the stocks can no longer trade. in that sense they fixed that problem. as eamon said, we have a lot of technology glitches or mini crashes, call them what you want, and the risk the failure. >> listen, the route that were implemented, the circuit breakers have been tremendously successful in keeping volatility down, i think. eamon is right. there are many flash crashes that occur, a number of reasons they happen. you can tighten the collars. we have collars that allow stocks to trade within certain bands when they're halted.
1:23 pm
we could tighten those collars. you could also change the market structure. there's 13 exchanges, 40 dark pools, a lot of points of failure. >> but that's to kenny ace point. >> you think that's going to happen? seriously? >> the best we can hope to is go to 13 exchanges and eliminate the others. >> on capitol hill, eamon, and within the s.e.c., is there the appear tide to fundamentally change market structure? >> you know, right now ply political instincts say no, and the s.e.c. says it's doing an overall review of market structure, but doesn't give you a time frame of when that's going to come out or what the work product will be. what's going to come out of that. that is ongoing right now. whether it leads to any actual changes is an entirely different question. your question about political appetite is a good one. does congress want to do anything. maybe in the way of the michael lewis book there would be
1:24 pm
interest. mary jo white was testifying last week, a lot of members of congress asked her about the book and whether the markets are rigged or not. >> my bet is you're going to be very limited action. i think you'll see a limited toward a trade at rule. >> i think they will likely do some kind of test pilot for that within the next few months. other than that, i don't think you'd see massive moves. i think they're very afraid of making any wholesale changes. >> very quickly, kenny, and i got to go. >> until such time that maybe they realize there's something going on that shouldn't be going on. goldman is already considering it, they don't want to be associated. >> a trade at rule might be makes some changes. >> big changes. >> thank you so much, guys. appreciate it very much. sue, thank you. two big stories we're watching. twitter shares tumbling, and the rich just got richer. dominic chu and morgan brennan on those stories. dom, you first. >> there's rich and then there's the rich list list. next we'll reveal the top fund
1:25 pm
earnings hedge fund managers, find out who made the cut and how they made their billions. of course, twitter is a huge stock on the move, morgan has more on that, don't you? >> reporter: i do. what happened to a stock when more than six times as many shares could be traded than the day before? we'll give you the answer to that, after the break. at, after. it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits
1:26 pm
with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.
1:27 pm

1:28 pm
all right. with the dow jones industrial average off almost 100 points, let's look at the gold market. the ilver, copper so very mixed bag in the medals today, ty. it may not be the best times for hedge funds. that doesn't mean there aren't winners, and i mean big winners. >> if you look at what we're talking about, this is institutional investor magazine, right? the 25 highest paid managers took home a whopping $21 billion? earnings in payout. how many? 25. >> 25 top hedge fund managers, according to "institutional investor." it's pretty decent this is the afternoon rich list that comes out every year.
1:29 pm
first of all, john paulson. paulson & company, of course, he had a huge bet on real estate back in the day, you name them, remember, he was also big in the wireless side of things, also some involvement in leaf wire homeland securitwire, but a lot of they companieses at least in 2013, which is when this particular study or survey covered, so that's big moves there. next up, s.a.c. capital advisers, steve cohen. 2.4 billion in terms of his pay out, his earnings. cohen's final year on the list and there's a reason why, he was at the center of a criminal insider trading charge last year. he's agreed to shut down, convert his hedge fund into a family office operation,
1:30 pm
managing his own money as well as employees. he'll still be very rich. yahoo, myron, zoweta, you name it, he trades a lot of these names so that's a big one. coming in at number one, this is interesting, 3.5 billion, david temperaturer from, since 2010 -- >> that's liesman money since 2010, he's returned 5 billion to investors. he made his billions last year in airlines, banks auto-related companies, citigroup, goodyear, united, delta, hca holdings, a lot of these companies are concentrated bets for guys buy david temperaturer. one of reasons he tops the list is also this is the third time he -- and the second year in a row he's topped this list. >> airlines are a great call.
1:31 pm
there have been times when they've been anything but a good call. >> all the contrary this past year. >> thank you very much dominic. treasuries were probably not a big investment for any of those traders, but we'll get a check on the bond market. how's it doing? >> we have seen yields coming down just a bit. you can see we're down a couple basis points. open the chart year to date, and i'll keep showing this chart. we haven't settled below that 257, but it's just a matter of time. that will give us a november comp, but here's an october of 2012 comp. look at the dollar index, a lot of distortions created by the strength in the euro. their central bank, they're manipulating a lot of rates pretty low. the last two charts are
1:32 pm
investment agreed and high yield. credit is pretty cheap, hey, we know some entities can borrow in the cap markets and rather cheap. sue, back to you. >> rick, thank you very much. we're watching shares of disney at this hour. the media giant getting ready to report earnings after the bell. disney has manage to do beat estimates every quarter for the past year. morgan brennan with what investors need to know ahead of those numbers today. hi, morgan. >> reporter: hi, sue. don't expect disney's number to be, amillennium, frozen. the larger media networks including both cable and broadcast expected to pull in 5.2 billion. espn by far the biggest single money maker for the company, so keep an eye on ad revenue and
1:33 pm
how much the winter olympics pressured that number. for parks and resorts division, 3.5 billion and how attendance compares to pricing. remember, orlando's disney world raised admission prices in february. for the studios, we're expecting 1.5 billion. that's largely thanks to "frozen" which topped the billion dollar market at the end of march to be the top grossing animated film of all time. that's going to lift studio retch, but also the consumer division, because disney can't keep those "frozen" toys on the shelves, and update on the shanghai disney expanse, all things marvel, and of course "star wars." back to you, sue. >> that's what everybody is waiting to see, morgan. talk to me about twitter at this point, shares hitting an all-time low, the lockup expires today, and we are seeing some heavy selling. what are you hearing about whether or not this will pick up more momentum?
1:34 pm
>> reporter: well, to be fair we have seen in general, the trend has been to see on the day the lockup expires to see the stocks come down, even trade down into the following day. now we know from our sources at twitter that something like 50% of the shares that are held by insiders are expected to keep being held by those insiders, but that being said, the big thing is how much twitter stock has fallen today. i'm not saying that twitter is going to surge on the next stock lockup expiration, but what i am saying is we've been expecting this, this is on top of lofty valuations, on top of an earnings report that despite a technical beat didn't come in line with what investors were expecting in terms of your growth and engagement. short term i see risks, long term analysts are saying there's
1:35 pm
still a lot of promise in twitter. >> morgan brennan, thank you very much. let's go to dominic chu, shall we? >> so tyler, check out what's happening with netflix. it's getting hit again, the only news out today is sudden communication said it reached an agreement. what you can see here, one of those stocks, the momentum names, down 3% today. the stock has lost about a quarter of its value since hitting the record high back in march, so netflix shares again the momentum to the down side still continues, tyler. back over to you. >> dominic, thank you very much. apple may have won the latest round in court in sam suns, and the stock may be back any $600 mark, but our next guest that says while apple is winning the battle it will still lose the war. find out why, when we return. ♪

1:38 pm
welcome back to "power lunch." we want to bring you a quick check on what's happening with the dow jones industrial average. it's down toward session lows there, just about 9 points, so
1:39 pm
almost a triple-digit decline. among the biggest decliners on the average so far, names like perc and pfizer on the drug side. home depot, ge, morgan chase rounding out the bottom five, the leading decliners. target, it continues to get hammered following the resignation of the ceo yesterday. today mpm partners downgrades the stock. their stock down over 3%, down about 8% since it announced its credit card breach back in september. sue, back over to you. dom, breaking news on google and intel. it looks like they're getting more involved in chrome books. hi, jon. >> yes, sue, this is happening out of the san francisco, intel and google saying that intel has new chips, and take a look at some of these names that are involved, acor, toshiba, the core i-3 chip, it is more powerful than you typically
1:40 pm
find. for those who might not remember, chrome books don't run windows. they run what looks like just the browser, google's chrome browser, let's people access the web. all the work is scored in the cloud. just a few weeks ago we had microsoft coming out with office for the ipad, now intel bringing out more chips on google's chrome operating system for chrome books, the old wintell partnership not what it used to be. it looks like they'll have up to 11 hours of battery life. so more op options for people out there. >> thank you very much, jon fortt. the epic patent fight between samsung and apple ends with kind of a whimper, not a wallop in a silicon valley court yesterday as a jury ordered samsung to pay, that's a far cry
1:41 pm
from the 2.2 billion that apple sought. he says no matter what the financial outcome, apple may well emerge from the billion dollar legal battle the clear los loser. he joins us now. welcome to "power lunch." >> thanks for having me. >> as i understand it, that's because this is one of samsung's tactics, they basically keep appealing, there are more suits, more appeals, and in the process of all of this, they use that time to gain market share. is that in a nutshell kind of what's going on? >> yeah, i mean it's sort of like a military tactic. you lure people, you know, into a battle that they're destined to, no matter what happens, they're destined to pay huge amounts for. i mean, samsung has a history of violating patents. it's a pretty aggressive history. when they do, and when they get sued, they countersue, saying oh, well our patents were
1:42 pm
violated, and many, many times those claims are thrown out as being, you know, pretty irrelevant, but it drags out the case, and while the case is going on, they bust through the market. that's exactly what's happened in the apple case. >> so what is apple to do as this point? steve jobs, when he was alive, move aggressively to try and punish samsung for this behavior. i would assume it would be hard to change the corporate culture at apple to just let this go, move on, and keep innovating and making big products, that samsung can then copy. what is apple to do? >> it's actually different than you think. tim cook never wanted to bring this. steve jobs' successor never wanted to bring the lawsuit. he tried to convince jobs not to do it, but failed. and so they've been engaged in this warfare now for many years. i mean it actually started in
1:43 pm
2010, if you talk about when they had their first discussions it's going going on all over the world in courtrooms everywhere you can imagine. nobody in the end is going to win legally. yeah, samsung is going to have to pay a billion the really good case was the first one. that was about copying the iphone, the original device, and they did. now this new case is about copying later features in the iphone 4 and 5, not as strong a case, not as valuable a case. >> but one to watch? >> eventually everybody needs to throw in the towel and get back to business. >> it's a great real. i really enjoyed it, curt. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. sue, cnbc that is compiled the first ever millionaire
1:44 pm
surv survey, and the hot topic of inequality. other wealth editor robert frank is here with us. >> up next we'll tell you who american millionaires really are, that you are occupational, political parties and most importantly marital status. the deference between millionaires and the rest of america. that's up next. that's up next.

1:46 pm
we're talking about financial millionaires. from the outside there are a lot of differences between millionaires and the rest of america.
1:47 pm
we're going to show you some charts from this survey. the main thing, the main difference is they tend to be more caucasian, higher percentage of caucasian, more likely to be married, and 87% of millionaires have a college degree or graduated from college, compared to 24% for our all-america survey. what's also interesting is that they -- when you look at their occupations and where they made their money, about highest number were professionals, so that's accountants, lawyers, a large number of teachers. that's the third highest category, senior corporate execs, not many investors down there. the split between men and women that tends to be a male group, 68% are men versus, of course, the rest of the country, which is more half and half. they're also likely, this is very interesting, to view themselves or define themselves as republican or independents.

38% say they're republicans ver 30% democrat. that compares with about 24% of republicans nationwide. so we don't know the cause and effect of all of these things, but we do know from other studies, staying married and graduating from college definitely helps your wealth. >> in that case, the millionaires really are different from the general population. >> yes. >> those are distinguishing traits. >> steve liesman will join us. he has looked at how the rich think differently about how people reach millionaire status, and confide some people are constrained to poverty. >> so robert and i many months ago conspired, asked the same question of average americans in our all-america survey and of millionaires in the millionaire survey. we ask people why do you think people are wealth? and why do you think they're poor? i'll show you the differences first of all. if you see here, the blue is the millionaire survey.

they're less likely than the average -- they're more likely to believe it's family or circumstances than the average american. and both sides are equally likely to say that it's a result of poor education. one more chart i want to show you, what about reasons on for wealth? here the wealthy are more inclined to believe it's their hard work. 44% of our millionaires in robert's survey people are wealthy because of their hard work, only 36% of the general public. about the same on family circumstance, but here again, wealthy less likely to say it's good education, and the general public just 24% say that, just a little bit more. there's some interesting differences there, but robert we're going to bring you back in, because there's another difference. it's not really wealth or poor. it has to do with political party. >> this is one of those big aha moments we wouldn't have found had we not sort of teamed up.

look at the response. this is just the millionaires between the republicans and democrats. a huge spread there, 63% of republicans say it's hard work, only 21% of democrats. look any all-america survey. >> virtually the same. republicans have more in common with their fellow republicans and democrats the same than they do -- >> in explaining why people are wealthy. >> the republican pollster of our democratic/republican team for the all-america survey has long argued that everything in america from how you feel about the color orange to how you feel about politics and taxes is filtered first through politics and then through everything else. this proves it, that politics here trumps the purse. >> we also know political philosophy. >> we also know that wealth makes you more of what you already are, as opposed to ink chaing your whole -- you had a great thought, robert, people
