As Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attempts to relate to the electorate, the Republican National Committee is out with a new chart pitting the “‘Dead Broke’ Clintons” income against the income of “Everyday Americans.”

The chart looks at how many households in each state it would take to equal the $30 million the Clintons took in since January 2014.

“She claimed she was ‘dead broke’ but here is how the Clintons’ $30 million income stacks up against everyday Americans in each state,” the RNC’s chart reads.

Spoiler alert: it takes quite a few households to match the Clinton’s income.

In Arkansas, for example, it would take the income of 501 households. In New York it would take 371.5 households.

In a swing state like Florida, it would take 417.7 households’ income. In Colorado, 315.6 households, 440.8 in Nevada, 431.1 in Ohio, 485.3 households in North Carolina, and 295.8 in Virginia.

The RNC’s chart labels take specific aim at Clinton’s comment that when she and Bill Clinton left the White House they were “not only dead broke, but in debt.”

It also pokes fun at her assertion when she announced her presidential candidacy that “everyday Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion.”
