Play associated audio
Melissa Block watched Monday night's Republican debate with a small group of voters in Greenville, S.C.: three business people and two housewives. They describe themselves as fiscal conservatives, first and foremost — not social conservatives or evangelicals — and Mitt Romney's message appeals to many of them. The attacks on Romney's record at Bain Capital do not register with these voters, and they see no point in the demands for him to release his tax returns. What does interest them: business experience, less government and long-term change to tackle the debt.
