A Democratic strategist and former presidential campaign advisor is predicting that Republican Donald Trump would beat Democrat Hillary Clinton by a landslide in the general election with the help of working class whites leaving the Democratic Party in droves.
Dave “Mudcat” Saunders, who served as senior advisor to John Edwards’ 2008 presidential campaign, made the prediction during a recent interview with The Daily Caller.
“I know a ton of Democrats — male, female, black and white — here [in southern Virginia] who are going to vote for Trump. It’s all because of economic reasons. It’s because of his populist message,” Sunders told the website.
According to the strategist, working class whites in the north who’ve held on to the Democratic Party because of strong union values are poised to join white southern Democrats who left the party long ago for social reasons.
“It’s compelling for working class people who have always followed their union to hear a guy who’s pro gun and pro economic fairness,” Saunders told The Daily Caller.
Saunders added that beyond her voter weaknesses, Clinton has yet to face serious political attacks.
