Mitt Romney secret video reveals views on Obama voters

Help

A secretly filmed video has emerged showing Mitt Romney disparaging Barack Obama voters at a private donor dinner.

The Republican nominee is shown saying the 47% of Americans who back the president do not pay income tax and would never vote for him.

In a late-night appearance, Mr Romney said his remarks were not "elegantly stated", but did not retract them.
