Don't know...


Lots of sources on the subject.

"Trump’s appeal certainly stirred a white nationalist element that had never felt represented in the past, but that fraction of Trump voters who had supported Obama must have been moved by another force. Ask blue collar voters in this region what the Obama Administration accomplished for them and even among committed Democrats answers are vague. What did they expect from Clinton? More of the same. Democrats’ steadily declining support among this thin tier of the blue-collar vote is the political dynamic that eventually broke the Blue Wall."

This group flipped or stayed home to a degree in the 2018 midterms.

These voters views are traditionally 180 degrees opposite of the "squad". Winning them back by forcing the Ds to take them in is the Trump strategy.
