The GOP is apparently gaining the blue-collar voters the Democrat party is bleeding.
According to Town Hall:
The composition of the two major political parties is fundamentally changing, according to a new poll, and it’s not looking too good for Democrats.
According to an NBC News poll, the Democratic Party is bleeding blue-collar workers and those workers are quickly finding a new home in the Republican Party.
The number of blue-collar voters who identify as Republicans has grown by 12 percent over the last decade. Meanwhile, the number of blue-collar voters who identify as Democrats has fallen by eight points. The trend is also happening among Black and Hispanic blue-collar workers.
Since 2010, the number of blue-collar Hispanic workers who identify as Republican has increased by 13 points, up from 23 to 36 percent. During the same period, the number of blue-collar Black workers who identify as Republican has increased by seven points, up from five to 12 percent.
Movement among white-collar workers has remained stable with the GOP losing only 1 percent.
