Obama & Democrat Party Lose Working Class White Americans to GOP
Barack Obama’s plan to put all Americans on food stamps is not working.
In 2010 Barack Obama lost 63 House seats in the midterm election.
In 2014 Barack Obama lost another 16 House seats in the midterm election.
For a grand total of 79 seats.
Not since Harry S. Truman in 1950 has a sitting president lost more House seats in two midterm elections.
When Barack Obama came into office white-leaning districts split between the parties almost equally during the 111th Congress, in 2009-10.
Today Republicans hold a 3-1 advantage in working class white districts.
Working class whites are fleeing the Democrat-Socialist party in droves.
The Daily Caller reported:
The GOP won its record majority in the House because it swept districts representing blue-collar, white Americans, according to a new analysis by National Journal.
The Democrats’ support in districts with high numbers of whites and low numbers of college grads plunged in 2010, fell in 2012 and fell further in 2014, according to the new analysis.
“In a measure of the [Democratic] party’s collapse on this terrain, of the 76 House Democrats who represented these working-class ‘lo-lo’ districts in 2009, just 15 remain in the chamber today,” said the analysis by National Journal’s Ronald Brownstein.
But the GOP’s increasing reliance on lower-income Americans creates a major problem for the party. That’s because many of the party’s major leaders and donors favor unpopular workforce policies that would bring in hundreds of thousands of lower-wage blue-collar guest-workers from abroad.
The Republican Party is the party of the Middle Class by a two-to-one ratio.
