Trump continues to poll high with the working class
Polls show that Trump continues to poll high with blue collared middle class voters. Trump continues to having much stronger numbers when the question of national security and who is better to address the economy are involved. Polls continue to show that voters top concerns for this presidential election is the economy and jobs. That is the real strength of Trump. Voters believe he has the best plans to get America working again at jobs that have a livable wage.
Jobs are what matter most
#Donald Trump’s campaign has been anything but business as usual. Trump has hit upon the disenfranchised and those who have seen jobs leave the country such as the steel industry in Pennsylvania. Cheaper quality steel is imported from China while factories in Pittsburgh have closed and the jobs that went with them. This is where Trump is strong. Jack O’Donnell of Upper Darby is a Trump supporter and he agrees that jobs are the most important concern for voters.
Bringing jobs back to the U.S.
For many in areas known as the Rust Belt states, voters are turning to the outsider who talks of bringing change to the government and their pick is Donald Trump. In states like Virginia and Pennsylvania bring jobs back is the most important issue. Pennsylvania lost so many jobs due to the steel industry going under and states like Virginia have lost many due to the coal industry being under attack. Trump has promised to bring jobs back to the coal industry something Clinton has said she will eliminate. #Democrats vs Republicans
