It seems the white working class is deserting the Democrats;
Democrats have gotten an elitist image and it's not playing well with the blue-collar boys.
But there's a bright side...
the Democrats are picking up the white college educated.
Turns out Millenials are the best educated generation in history so more younger voters are already leaning towards the blue team. Given what we know about ZGen they will likely be following suit. This too is the pool from which future candidates will be drawn. But even younger conservatives are trending slightly more liberal which points to a time when the two factions might begin working together a bit more.
The elitist image is one reason Hillary Clinton lost. At least among independents who went for Trump although they didn’t like him either. Hillary came across as not only elitist, but aloof and a know it all. She went against an obnoxious, uncouth, rude fool. 54% of all independents disliked both and didn’t want neither one to become president.https://news.gallup.com/opinion/pol...ans-dislike-presidential-candidates.aspx
Biden didn’t come across as elitist, not last November anyway. Certainly not a know it all. I’d say more as an average Joe and that’s isn’t a pun. Hence Biden upped the union household vote from 51% to 56%. The working class or at least those who belong to a union. He also won independents by 13 points whereas Hillary lost them by 4. But yes, the Democrats in congress are coming over as elitist and the type of I know what best for you better than you do. Perhaps having the college educated on your side is one of the causes. They can’t relate to those who haven’t gone to college.
I suppose the good news is Biden’s overall approval rating is no longer falling, it has stabilized over the last three weeks and has remained basically the same. He hasn’t climbed any, but neither has he fallen anymore.
