Let me put it this way, the electorate is made up of all of us. White, black, brown, Asian etc. Republican, Democrats, independents and those who just don't give a coyote's howl at all about politics or who wins or loses. It's made up of the educated, the uneducated and those in-between.

My problem is the painting of the broad brush, throwing the uneducated into the GOP column and the educated into the Democratic column. Although not long ago it was exactly the opposite with the uneducated voting Democratic, college grads, Republican.

Things change, change is constant. From a historical vantage, you have this from 1972 thru 2008 where I get a lot of my historical stats from.


You can see changes in demographics and how they voted.

As for illegals, I'd say your pretty much correct. Most would classify an illegal as not coming to this country with a passport and visa. whether seeking asylum or just crossing over are placed in the same column. But here is where the GOP makes hay, only 27% of All Americans approve of Biden's handling of immigration, 59% disapprove. independents 20% approve, 68% disapprove. Question 67B


there's tons of other information in the poll. Which I would say 99% of folks just skip over and go with the horse race numbers. The perception here, laws don't mean anything for a perception is Biden and company have thrown out the welcoming mat for illegals and are progressing to open borders. now perception doesn't have to be based in fact or the truth. One gleams their perception from a 30 second spot on TV showing thousands of illegals living under a bridge. Why becomes totally irrelevant.

As an aside, I've always wondered how many people vote on stances on issues and policies? I don't think many do. Republicans and Democrats vote for the letter behind the name of the candidate, regardless of who that candidate/s is or are. Independents, a lot of them vote the beauty contest, the popularity contest, for charisma as history shows, usually the most charismatic candidate wins and if not win the presidency, wins the independent vote.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
