70. Most repugs are not wealthy. 7 out of 10 walking around white guys are repug trumpers...

We're talking men in the trades, co-workers next to you, at the supermarket, in the car next to you on the road, cops, military.

trump appeals to many of these guys—he's disresects women, is on his third, arm candy, trashy wife (my opinion) he talks like them, uses the same vernacular phrasings. There's nothing intellectual about trump's speeches at rallies or his tweets. He comes off as "one of them" who succeeded as a self-made billionaire. Not really of course as he inherited money from his racist father's real estate holdings—and it wasn't any one million as he likes to say. It was hundreds of millions and he cheated his siblings after his father's death to get most of it.

And he's most likely not a billionaire—probably, with all his bankruptcies he's not much richer than what he stole from his siblings (he's got constant schemes going on though, like his nearly every weekend tris to his own resorts which pours money into his pockets as the federal government shells out bucks for rooms, fees, food etc. for SS agents and all of trump's staffers who come with him. Nothing like a scamming president to engender admiration from certain voter types.

It didn't used to be like that. Sanders always talks about getting those voters back but that ship sailed generations ago, started even before Reagan with the "hardhats" vs the hippies in the late '60s. They aren't coming back and we really don't want 'em back as we'd have to change our party to appeal to them. Let 'em stay in the "white peoples'" party, which is what the republican party is when you come down to it. And actually it's the white men's party as repug women office holders are few and far between.
