The viral video of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney saying that 47 percent of Americans are "dependent upon government" has ties to Carleton College.
The video was created by David Corn of Mother Jones, which is a political magazine based out of Washington, D.C.
In the controversial video, shot at a private fundraiser in May in Florida, Romney describes 47 percent of Americans as people "who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care of them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it."
The original video, which has everyone blurred out in it other than Romney, has more than 3.1 million views on YouTube. A version without the blur has more than 750,000 views.
