Former President Bill Clinton’s top pollster acknowledged that Democrats have been losing working-class voters of all races and backgrounds—not just solely white working-class voters—because the party’s elites support open borders, are soft on illegal immigration, and favor trade deals that screw American workers. Stan Greenberg—who has written extensively about the importance of so-called Reagan Democrats in places like Macomb County, Michigan—declared that Democrats do not just have a “white working-class problem.” Writing in the American Prospect, Greenberg notes that Democrats have lost support “with all working-class voters across the electorate, including the Rising American Electorate of minorities, unmarried women, and millennials” because of the party’s … Read More
