Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Follow the money. Money inducement, parts cash and status, furnishes masses of people for elites' political purposes. Of necessity masses of people reasonably expect money income more than than any ideology or politician to mitigate their grievances.

In the USA it is the poorest voters ...keep voting for [Republican Party]

This statement is not true. I trust you to search public sources to find data description of historical party control of federal government --POTUS, senate, house--1900 to present.

More difficult to locate and digest is US textbook editions for secondary school students, AP Government, for example. This material summarizes historical differences in parties' regional controls and electioneering for local, state, and federal governments. Republican Party historically has been successful controlling "down ticket" class antagonism by relating money inducements to local necessities. Beginning with "free trade," name these necessities.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
