    Former President Donald Trump helped accelerate a massive exodus of blue-collar voters from the Democratic Party to the GOP, potentially reshaping the policies of both parties for years to come.

    Perhaps even more interesting, support from Black and Hispanic blue-collar voters have also seen impressive increases in recent years, despite those groups being traditionally difficult for the GOP to garner support from.

    Hispanic blue-collar support for the GOP grew from 23% in 2010 to 36% in 2010, a 13-point swing. Meanwhile, Black blue-collar voters shifted 7 points during the same time frame:

    The pollsters noted that the bulk of the shift of blue-collar voters to the GOP happened under Trump. The result is a majority, 57%, of blue-collar voters now saying they align with the GOP.

    The policy implications of such a massive shift in voter demographic voters will impact elections for years to come, especially with Republicans debating their next steps in a post-Trump era.

    The former president has threatened to start his own party or support the primary opponents of Republicans that deviate from his agenda, a sign that the GOP may have to retool their platform in order to appease their new base.

    Yes read that the GOP is gaining good support from traditional blue collar democrat kinds of people. Not much shift in upper class.
    REPORT: Blue Collar Voters Are Flocking To The Republican Party

    Democrats are becoming globalists with globalist elitist agendas. They are abandoning USA workers, like Pelosi accused Trump of throwing crumbs, democrats do worse than what they accuse others of doing proving their hypocrisy. Vastly increasing immigration, illegal or otherwise, like Biden wants, is not helping blue collar workers...
    These illegal immigrants are planned as democratic voter replacements for disaffected Americans who leave the democrat party.

    This is a major political shift and it includes minorities, too.

    The Washington Examiner reports:


    Blue-collar voters made a major shift from the Democratic Party to the GOP under former President Donald Trump, including those from Hispanic and black demographics.

    The percentage of blue-collar voters who associate themselves with the Republican Party has grown 12 points over the last decade, an NBC News poll found. During that same time frame, the number of blue-collar voters calling themselves Democrats declined by 8 points.

    The shift holds true across demographic lines, with more Hispanic and black blue-collar people identifying with the GOP.
