7. This is a dangerous demographic for Democrats

 

A lot of these people have been loyal to the party for many years. They are union workers and middle class whites. Over the last decade, the Democrats have been slowing losing these voters. They don't feel the Democratic party is representing their issues any longer. Their biggest priority? Economy, trade, and jobs. And that's why Bernie is doing so well with them.

The question is if Hillary is the nominee, will they continue to stay loyal to the party? Trump may be able to make inroads with this voting demographic. And that should be a serious concern for Democrats because many of these voters are in battleground states.

This is why I have said that Cruz will be easier to beat than Trump. I don't care what the polls say...Trump can beat Hillary. Cruz can't.
