According to recent research, people from the working class and Hispanic voters share roughly equal opinions on progressive topics. And not in favor of the Democrats.
Ruy Teixeira declared his intention to go to the American Enterprise Institute after leaving the Center for American Progress.
Teixeira believes that his personal policy views haven’t changed, but he claims that the present cultural climate of progressive groups “sends me running screaming from the left.” Teixeira’s involvement in the Beltway scrum frequently entailed defending against requests to go right on economic matters.
“America is not the greatest country in the world vs. America is the greatest country in the world. By 66% to 28 %, strong progressives say America is not the greatest country in the world. By 70-23, Hispanics say the reverse &working class voters concur.“ https://t.co/zGC6SEIj5H— Christina Sommers (@CHSommers) July 17, 2022
Teixeira has been one of the progressives sounding the alarm for Democrats, attempting to persuade them that their foray into socially radical and out-of-touch zone is seriously harming them not just in the run-up to the midterm elections but also in future elections. While Teixeira joining AEI may seem strange, it proves that conservative groups are more receptive to new ideas than progressive ones.
Data that predicts nothing short of the Democrats’ demise in November and beyond is being pointed out in a post for The Liberal Patriot on Substack. According to Teixeira’s analysis of a recent poll, strong progressives are primarily white, college-educated voters, and their opinions are vastly different from those of working-class and Hispanic voters in almost every area.
Strong progressive Democrats are increasingly at conflict with Hispanic and working-class voters, and the latter group’s drive for social change is also driving Hispanic voters at a far faster rate than it did working-class voters prior to 2016. Union families were divided on who to support in the election of Donald Trump, which helped him win blue-collar areas and end the Democrats’ dominance in the rust belt.
However, there are now Hispanic voters who actively support Republicans on important issues and disapprove of President Joe Biden and his policies. Democrats in those rust belt areas have traditionally relied on working-class voters, while Democrats in southern states like Texas, Florida, and other places relied heavily on Hispanic votes.
