Trump is taking the Democrats former base
Washington Free Beacon:
Blue-Collar Workers Increasingly Optimistic Under TrumpI suspect that only the out of touch elites think the US is on the wrong track. The poll found that a majority of the blue collar workers thought the US was on the right track. This is a sea change for Democrats who keep alienating blue collar workers.
New poll: 85 percent of blue-collar workers say their lives are heading 'in the right direction'
Nearly two years into the Trump presidency, blue-collar workers are increasingly optimistic about their social and economic circumstances.
A new survey, conducted by the Harris Poll, found that 85 percent of blue-collar workers said their lives are advancing in "the right direction." The survey, commissioned by Express Employment Professionals, took place between July 9 and July 23. Data were collected from 1,049 blue-collar workers from across the nation who are employed in professions requiring manual labor.
Across the board, the results indicate America's blue-collar workforce is sanguine about the nation's current economic outlook and their own standing. Apart from the 85 percent of blue-collar Americans who said their lives are going in the right direction, 69 percent said their local communities are on the right path, and 58 percent view their states as being on a positive course.
