Does Brutus offend the Roman mob?

In both history and in reference to the play: Yes, the people (the "mob" or plebs which were the lower class) loved Caesar. He showered many gifts to them in the streets; booty from his campaigns in Gaul. He was well loved by his army, the men were very dedicated and loyal. He was rich, and influential in the Senate and he used his power not only to gain more power for himself, but for the people as well (land bills, laws, army). The mob hardly cared that he had more power than the other senators, but the senators thought that he wanted to be dictator/king, so they conspired to kill him.
