Some polling that Democrats need to take a close look at....
Apparently, education and intelligence do matter.
The changing demographics of the Republican party are interesting and perhaps explanatory of some voter behavior, especially in regard to the nature of die-hard Trump supporters. Generalizing, of course (because there are always exceptions), today's Republican party is older, whiter, and less educated than it has been in the past -- and compared to the demographic makeup of the opposition party.
The education level is especially telling. According to a Public Opinion Strategies report (based on NBC/Wall St. Journal data), in 2012, 40% of Republicans were college educated whites. In 2018, that demographic in the Trump-dominated Republican party slipped to just 29%. It is evident that the Republican party is losing college-educated voters and, perhaps, attracting more voters who are less educated.https://www.smerconish.com/news/2019/6/ ... lectualism
2020 Dems face the same issue that Hillary faced in 2016. How do you convince these people that opportunity still exist for them in a nation with more diversity when their trusted media sources and leaders are telling them the sky is falling on a daily basis?
