This is because people identify with the wealthy, not with their fellow working poor.

I suspect, rather, that such people are on the whole happy with what they have, grateful to have it, and afraid of losing it. They believe that big corporations and the wealthy class generate prosperity. They don't want to kill the goose that provides them with the standard of living they have.

Go to any 'company town', and you will find that this is the dominant attitude. "Before [the company] came in here, we had nothing."

Class warfare does not sound like a good idea to such folks.
