Ouch! Middle Class Trusts GOP over Democrats by 35 Point Margin to Run the US Economy

After decades of destroying jobs, manufacturing, religion, culture, tradition and livelihood the Democrat Party was stunned in 2016 to discover Americans weren’t buying their lies about supporting the Middle Class in America.

The DNC recently published a survey of Middle Class voters after months of blaming Russia for their stunning loss in November.

It’s worse than they thought.
By a staggering 35 point margin Middle Class voters now understand they have a better chance with Republicans on the economy and creating jobs.

That’s got to hurt.

Via the RNC:
