A recent poll revealed that the U.S. working class is massively abandoning the Democrats to join the Republican Party mainly due to the globalist policies of the Biden administration, reported the Washington Examiner.
According to the survey the Republican Party gained 12% in membership over the last 10 years and most of this exodus occurred during the tenure of former President Donald Trump.
Considered a hard-to-reach segment for Republicans, support from working-class Americans, which is made up of a significant proportion of Hispanics and African Americans, grew by 13% and 12% respectively between 2010 and 2020.
Overall support for the Republican Party among all working-class Americans, including whites, now stands at 57%.
America First, Trump’s legacy for Republicans
This demographic shift to Republicans is attributed to Trump’s “America First” policy, a series of measures the former president adopted to favor the local economy such as cutting dependence on Chinese goods by imposing tariffs to promote domestic industry, significantly decreasing illegal and legal immigration, curbing visa programs for foreign white-collar workers, and tax incentives for American companies to bring their factories back to the United States.
All of which resulted in one of the greatest economic growth periods of the country.
Biden a president out of touch with the country’s needs
Biden destroyed 52,000 working-class jobs as soon as he became president when he canceled the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
While one of his campaign promises was that these jobs he would sacrifice to move from a fossil to a “green” energy model would be replaced with new jobs, to date the White House has not presented concrete plans for these Americans he left without income.
Recently Biden presented the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 with which he intends to grant amnesty to some 11 million illegal aliens. With this law he also seeks to reward companies that hire these immigrants to fill white-collar positions when there are still 17 million Americans out of work.
The future of the Republicans is still with Trump
While there was back and forth among Trump-supporting Republicans who then turned their backs on him during the Jan. 6 incidents on Capitol Hill, some of them have come to realize that Trump still has the support of the vast majority of Republican voters and the former president’s leadership still weighs in.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) expressed his desire to unify the party by following Trump in the next election.
“I think you’re going to see over the next couple of months, Donald Trump lead the Republican Party on policy and give us the energy we need to take back the House and the Senate,” Graham said on Sean Hannity’s show.
He added, “If we can get behind President Trump and follow his lead, we will win in 2022. If we argue with ourselves, we’re going to—we’re going to lose. And there’s no reason to lose.”
