Of course the entire premise of this entire diary is wrong - The Dems consistently win the working class vote by large margins. What they lose is a specific subset of it - middle income blue collar whites. what you and Sirota are doing is buying into a Republican narrative that marginalizes huge swathes of America as somehow not real. The idea that the GOP won the working class is about as silly as saying that the Dems win the wealthy vote simply because they happen to do very well among non-Christian and/or non-white upper class voters with graduate degrees.
