(National Sentinel) Elections: The Democratic Party hierarchy made a conscious decision a few years ago to abandon white, working class voters and instead use a ‘divide-and-conquer’ strategy of cobbling together a coalition of ‘aggrieved’ minorities as a way to secure future power.
It was a strategy party elders believed would sink Donald J. Trump and elevate Hillary Clinton to the Oval Office.
But it didn’t work out as planned. And now, a new survey by the party shows just how far away Democrats have strayed from white working class Americans, as reported by Breitbart News:
The House Majority PAC, a Super PAC associated with House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), whose goal is to regain a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections, just released a new poll of white working class voters that is sounding alarm bells for the Democratic House leadership.
Among the key findings is this stunner: By a margin of 35 percent, more white working class voters believe that the term “will help improve the economy and create jobs” applies to Republicans in Congress than it does to Democrats in Congress.
Other key findings in the survey include:
- Democrats trail on the initial Congressional ballot among white working class voters by 10 points, 43 percent to 33 percent.
- A majority of white working class voters approve of the job President Trump is doing by a 52 percent to 44 percent margin.
- 66 percent of white working class GOP voters approve of the job House Republicans are doing, up from 44 percent last year.
“All of the voters were White, over the age of twenty-four and did not have a college degree or higher education. The interviews were conducted June 27 – July 13, 2017. The margin of error for overall results is ±3.10%,” the polling firm says of its methodology.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Democratic operatives did not need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a survey to find out if or why white, working class voters supported the party: They knew already.
But today, the party has moved so far to the Left that most working class whites no longer recognize it — and no longer associate with it.
“White voters without a college degree made up 34% of the electorate in 2016. Their share was stable since 2012 but our [Democrat] margin got 12% worse,” the researchers told the Democratic leadership.
Trump, meanwhile, has continued to cultivate this demographic and do well among them.
And now that his administration is working to both curb illegal and legal immigration and refugee resettlement programs began under Obama and favored by the party of divide-and-conquer, Democrats’ hopes of assembling an overwhelming majority of aggrieved groups will be thwarted even more.
