NBC Poll Finds GOP is the Party of the Blue Collar Worker

Democrat Party and Republican Party Symbol on an American Flag Background

A recent NBC poll has found a significant shift toward Republicans among blue collar voters, showing that the Democrats are no longer the party of the backbone of the country.

According to the NBC poll, blue-collar workers who call themselves Republicans has jumped by 12 percent since 2010. Also, eight percent of the same group have abandoned the Democrat Party.

But drilling down into the results shows something that must scare Democrats. The number of black and Hispanic blue-collar workers who identify as Republican has also gone up. Hispanic Republicans are up 13 percent and black blue-collar workers are up 7 percent.

It appears that much of this change has come over the last 5 years during Donald Trump’s tenure. It appears that the new GOP voters have come to the party because Trump made them believe that Republicans care about them while Democrats do not.

While this poll will certainly frighten the Democrats, it should also serve as a warning to the Republicans.

The GOP better not go back to backroom dealing, bowing and scraping to the Democrats, refusing to fight for the conservative cause, and dumping the Trump agenda. If they do, they will lose these new voters who have not yet developed any close loyalties to the GOP.

Meanwhile, this new political divide has shown the power of the Trump agenda in another area: fundraising.

Despite the fact that the Democrats have convinced dozens of extremely rich corporation to cut off political donations to Republicans, in the most recent reporting period, the GOP has raised $3 million more than the Democrats.

Per The Federalist:

According to financial disclosures made public by the Federal Election Commission, the Republican National Committee raised $16.3 million in January compared to the Democratic National Committee’s $13.5 million. That’s about $3 million more.

The Democratic Senatorial Committee raised $6 million while the National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $8.3 million in January, as previously reported by The Federalist. The National Republican Congressional Committee outpaced the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee by half a million in the month of January as well—$7.5 million to $7 million.

The GOP maintains a $38 million advantage in fundraising on a national level heading into the critical 2022 midterm elections. The DNC has $45 million, while the RNC has $83 million. The NRSC has $17 million, while the DSCC comes in at $9 million in the account. The DCCC also maintains $13 million in debt in terms of cash-on-hand. The Republican committee ended the 2020 year with no debt.

Despite the establishment lining up against the GOP, Trump has led the party to incredible fundraising.

This is yet another thing that the GOP better learn.
