In the past few years, Democrats have joined the radical left, and that has consequences.

Workers are now flocking to the Republican Party. Is there any wonder why?

As one of his first acts as president, Joe Biden eliminated thousands of jobs.

The GOP is quickly becoming a workers’ party. This means the following:

Donald Trump’s exit has given Washington politics a more normal rhythm, but outside the Beltway, deeper forces are changing the partisan landscape.

Data from NBC News’ poll shows the makeup of the two big parties is changing and a massive shift in employment is imminent: the type of jobs Democrats and Republicans hold. There is evidence for racial and ethnic groups that Republicans are becoming the party of working class Americans and that change is fast.

If the movement continues, it could have a huge impact on the future of the GOP. Consider the overall extent of the change.

Over the past decade, the percentage of working-class voters who call themselves Republicans has risen 12 points. At the same time, the number in this group who identify as Democrats has fallen by 8 points. The numbers have remained stable among white-collar voters, with Democrats seeing a tiny increase and Republicans seeing a tiny decrease …

For these voters, the numbers reflect this large-scale shift – a 12-point gain for the GOP.

This is a major political change that includes minorities.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Under former President Donald Trump, working-class voters switched from the Democratic Party to the GOP, including those from the Hispanic and black demographics.

According to a poll by NBC News, the percentage of working-class voters joining the Republican Party has increased 12 points over the past decade. During the same period, the number of workers who called themselves Democrats fell by 8 points.

The shift is across demographic boundaries, with more Spanish and black workers identifying with the GOP.

This could have a significant impact on the 2022 and 2024 elections.
