Well, there is a lot of ambiguity about what is and what is not considered middle and upper middle class.
According to sociologists such as Dennis Gilbert of Hamilton College the upper middle class constitutes about 15% of households. Its members are very highly educated professionals with great autonomy in the work place. Graduate degrees are very common and educational attainment serves as the main distinguishing feature of this class. (Gilbert, 2002; Ehrenreich, 1989) Household incomes vary depending on how many income earners there are within a household. One-earner upper middle class households may have incomes in the high 5-figure range while married couple household commonly have incomes in excees of $100,000. (Gilbert, 2002; Thompson & Hickey, 2005) In 2005, the top 15% of personal income for individual earners were those making $62,500 or more. (US Census Bureau, 2006)

Sarah Palin's salary as governor of Alaska is reported to be $125,000 plus an additional $60,000 in reimbursable expenses. Her husband's salary has been reported as $93,000. This combined income is well above what the Census Bureau considers middle class. According to the Census' most recent data their middle class definition is: Median income for married households was just shy of $70,000 in 2006. The range of the middle 20 percent was approximately $57,000 to $83,000, and the range of the "Baucus middle class"—the middle 60 percent—was about $35,500 to $122,000. This $122,000 figure, then, represents the highest possible income that a married household could accurately call middle income, or "middle class." Hence, Sarah Palin may want us to think of her family as being middle class but her salary alone places her family into the upper class.
