    SHOCK POLL: Trump Blue Collar Support highest since FDR in 1930s

    SHOCK POLL: Trump Blue Collar Support highest since FDR in 1930s
    By Dmitri Voltova -
    October 17, 2015

    t may come as a surprise to many that Donald J Trump’s support from Blue Collar Americans (those involved in trades, manufacturing, industry, and labor) is the highest since any candidate since FDR in 1936 since Gallup began polling.

    Trump has consistently shown his appeal to the blue collar sector of the economy, pulling ahead of even Clinton and Sanders in “rust belt” states like Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Pennslyvania.

    These states have the highest share of “Blue Collar” voters in the nation, and many of them have not voted Republican in over 20 years.

    Trump’s appeal to blue collar workers is in the 60% range, higher than any candidate since Franklin Roosevelt won a massive landslide in 1936 on the support of the Blue Collar voter.

    Prntly Offers:

    Many factors are included, and analysts believe that Trump’s appeal to the working man comes from his promise to bring factory jobs back to the US, and his record as a successful businessman has been showcased on television on “The Apprentice.”

    Trump doesn’t do well with just the average “White Joe Sixpack,” he also gains a large share of black voters and even hispanics (25%, 37%)

    This appeal is allowing him to win in Michigan, Ohio, and Pennslyvania, and also is getting him votes in Manufacturing states like Connecticut and Massachusetts. Though the two New England states may be long shots, recent polling suggests that he could make Democrats struggle in these “blue states” and waste resources there as Trump campaigns in more critical states like Wisconsin and Ohio.

    This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Manufacturing has been hit very hard. I'm in Ohio and we need these jobs back. Too many Ohioans are struggling.

    If we get Donald Trump elected so that he at least has a chance to bring jobs back, he must still deal with the majority of the bought and paid for Congress. We will as a country never be able to get back what we once had, a chance to live, work and be happy if we don't always stand up ith #Trump2016 and stand up to Congress and make them do what is right or replace them. We must stand together as one. We must have each others backs at all times, no exceptions. Enough of this New World Order multi-national, multi-cultural hog wash because it does not work unless the cultures are very, very similar and that is not what we face today.

    In many States you must be a registered Republican to vote in the GOP Primary. Check your State Primary rules. Trump has to have a Landslide vote in the Primary or the RNC rules say they can nominate whoever they want. This is so very important.

    There are some states that anyone can vote in the Republican primary. Thats how the RINO in Louisiana kept his seat. Democrats broke the law doing in. They were suppose to vote for him in the general election since they voted for him in the primary but most voted for the Democrat instead. No one did a thing about it either.

    Trump is the only candidate completely qualified to bring back our economy and jobs.No one else on either the left or the right even comes close! Trump is a Genius when it comes to this stuff! You know since he first started running, I have learned more about trade and the economy and no other candidate is even trying to explain it like Trump has. He tells the truth and that's all I need to make an informed decision. Go Trump Go!!!#Trump2016

    People have hated the trade deals from NAFTA to now. The people in DC all work for big money people that want low wage workers.The want to be able to ship jobs to low wage countries and let illegals flood in to the USA to puch down pay here for many jobs. Trump if he fixes the trade deals so we sell as much as we buy from other countries this will bring back millions of jobs to the USA. Sending all illegals home will let pay go up on many jobs here. This would be good for working people because there would be more jobs and better paying jobs. That is why the GOP and the DEMS are fighting to stop Trump their big money people does not want to see wages going up. They can put billions more in their pockets if they can keep people down and keep wages low. I hope the people in American can see that. There is on one person running that wants to fix these two things Trade And the illrgal problem and that is Trump. So if you want to be able to get abetter job and higher pay vote for Trump.

    The blue collar workers are real people with real jobs, and real families to support. They have neither the time, the money, nor the education to live inside their own heads, surrounded by ivy growing on over 200 year old bricks,, and dreaming of Plato's Utopia. They live in the real world, far from the egg heads and limosine liberals that I just described. (And I mean this without prejudice against them, but with prejudice towards the egg heads that taught me to wear this bowtie) The fact that their country is losing economic ground internationally is putting their jobs at risk, and their union health care benefits have been seriously erroded secondary to the Affordable Care Act. These are all good reasons for them to support Donald Trump. Dr. Carson is a good second choice.

    The motto we will make the working mans life better from a candidate whos party has been in power since the 2006 elections doesn't fly.

    You know the Democratics are gonna try and do every dirty trick in the book. So we need a ground game to get more voters registered. The reason Obama is placing more illegals in some states Than others is to get more electoral votes in Democratic States. So we need to really push to get more voters registered.

    United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

    LETS GO WIN THIS THING by the largest victory in US history and give our new President a mandate that can not be reckoned with, so when CEOs get the call from President Trump, they go "oh, crap", because they already know where Trump goes so do we all, and if he/she doesn't both keep and bring back his company's manufacturing jobs to the United States, we'll boycott that company into bankruptcy.

    We'll do it one day at a time, one company at a time, until the current Fortune 500 list won't even exist and the word "free" means Freedom, not Free Trade, and the word "open" means Open For Business, not Open Borders.

    In case anyone is curious, Texas only requires the standard voter registration to vote in the primary elections.
    One does not need to register as a republican or democrat.
    However, if you vote in the primary for a dem, and then there is a run-off for the rep., then you can not participate in the rep run-off re-elections.

    Calling on all Texans (US citizens ONLY) to stand united. Vote for Trump in the primary and general elections. Make this country great again!
