In a national survey of 23,347 registered voters across the nation in June and the first two weeks of July, Clinton did best among those with no or low incomes. This is contrary to the conventional wisdom that those with little education and little money support Trump. They don’t. According to this poll, it is the middle and upper income voters who support Trump.
Blue collar workers support Trump over Hillary by 5%, 44% to 39%.
Among higher income voters, 40% believe the economy is the most important issue, followed by middle income voters of whom 35% agree the economy is most important. Among low income voters only 31% believe the economy is the most important problem facing our nation.
Not surprisingly, those with the lowest income are more likely to say the country is on the wrong track with 75% of those with incomes under $50,000 believing the country is on the wrong track compared to 73% of middle income people and 68% of those making over $100,000.
“Somewhat surprising poll results.”
Only if you actually believe them..
In this article you are using results from Morning Consult. In your article about Trump gaining in Battleground counties, the results were from Remington Research Group..
The results do not match up.
Morning Consult has Clinton with small lead in Pennsylvania while Remington Research Group has Trump with a 23 point lead.. Might as well pull numbers from a hat.
The Harper Polling Firm has a tie in Connecticut at 43% each. So would be doubtful that Clinton is really polling at 43 % nationwide.. As far as I am concerned all of the MSM polls are fake..
I would hazard a guess that Trump is at 53% and Clinton at 37%…However the poll games can wait. One of my hobbies is trying to figure out the location of Plato’s Atlantis, so will play with that for awhile.
Wait-wait-wait, wasn’t Trump supposed to COMPLETELY change voting trends and win over the blue collar folks from the Democrats forever?
Yes, yes he will.
When might we expect that to happen?
Better be before election if we hope to keep Barbara’s seat — that’s going to be a chore!
The 10th district isn’t packed with Blue collar workers. Barbara will fine even if those 20 people don’t vote for her.
There’s an article for you; ‘A Tale of Two 10ths.’
I really suggest a more wider walkabout, there is a lot of blue in the district.
And yet Comstock ran as a solid conservative and won handily.
Comstock ran as Frank Wolf in a dress. The general electorate can choose whether they want genuine or generic — the party, not so much.
Uh oh, Miss Jeanine being snarky and rude.
Democrat leads with core democrat voting group, Republican leads with core Republican voting group. This is in no way surprising.
Welfare is a curse that is sinking Europe and will eventually sink us unless we learn quickly. The collapse is painful to watch but quite instructive – paying people to do nothing productive or even paying them when they are destructive only ends one way and that is tyranny.
Not so sure why/how this is a surprise?
The taker/gimme gimme crowd is going to support the giver.
The fed up blue collar/worker bee crowd is going to support anyone but the status quo that keeps taking from/screwing them.
The upper income “my bubble is fine so scram” crowd is busy cya and protecting themselves by whatever means necessary
The takers, many of whom pay no taxes, will vote for the makers to be taxed, and the money transferred to themselves. And these takers will accuse the makers of being greedy. Hmmm.
