Posted on 10/18/2015 4:32:28 AM PDT by Helicondelta
It may come as a surprise to many that Donald J Trumps support from Blue Collar Americans (those involved in trades, manufacturing, industry, and labor) is the highest since any candidate since FDR in 1936 since Gallup began polling.
Trump has consistently shown his appeal to the blue collar sector of the economy, pulling ahead of even Clinton and Sanders in rust belt states like Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Pennslyvania.
These states have the highest share of Blue Collar voters in the nation, and many of them have not voted Republican in over 20 years.
Trumps appeal to blue collar workers is in the 60% range, higher than any candidate since Franklin Roosevelt won a massive landslide in 1936 on the support of the Blue Collar voter.

Trump’s plan to deport ILLEGAL ALIENS is the core reason why “blue collar” workers are getting on his bandwagon.
I think Trump will also get 25% of black vote as well
Jefferson Sessions as Vice President
Department of State, (return INS.) John Bolton
Department of Justice Rep. Steve King
Department of Treasury, (includes former Homeland Security - Customs) Carl Icahn (Offered and Accepted)
Department of War, (change the name back.) Gen. James Mattis
Department of Interior, (includes the legitimate functions only of former Dept. of Transportation, Dept. of Homeland Security - Border Patrol, and Energy Departments) Gov. Palin
Department of Health and Human Services (include the VA function.) Dr. Ben Carson
Department of Labor and Commerce Herman Cain
This proposed model has the President directly managing eight subordinates which is slightly higher than optimal.
Department of Homeland Security ELIMINATE
Department of Education ELIMINATE as proposed by The Donald, 9/23/25 at a Columbia, SC Town Hall with Sen. Tim Scott.
Department of Energy ELIMINATE
Department of Housing and Urban Development ELIMINATE
Department of Veterans Affairs - ELIMINATE
Department of Agriculture ELIMINATE
Department of Transportation - ELIMINATE
In non-cabinet level jobs
Sheriff Clarke should be FBI Director
Michelle Bachman as IRS Commissioner under Secretary Carl Icahn in Treasury
Admiral James A. Ace Lyons as Undersecretary of War - Navy Branch.
LTC Allen West as Undersecretary of War Army Branch.
Lynnette Diamond Hardaway and Rochelle Silk Richardson would be great as President Trumps Co-Press Secretaries.
Marsha Blackburn, Speaker of the House
Ted Cruz as Senate Majority Leader.
@HillaryClinton is on the front page of the @nytimes waving to 200 people in New Hampshire. My crowd next door was 5,000 people no pic!
No I believe it is deeper than that.
Trump is for bringing back American manufacturing.
The GOP (and democrats as well) have been on the “ship every single job to Communist China” train for an entire generation.
Trump, and Trump alone, is saying we need to stop doing that.
THAT is why Trump is resonating so well across the entire spectrum.
He wants to bring back American jobs.
If Trump pick Carson for VP I think the percentage of black votes will increase alot as well
It’s true in Indiana
And his plan to rebalance trade and rebuild the economy.
Are these Trump’s picks or yours? Good list either way.
It was support from traditional dems which pushed Nixon over the top in 68 and support Reagan got in his elections IMO. Meanwhile, the GOPe continues to run away from him because he is not of the country club set albeit he owns a bunch of them.
If they had their way, they would run Romney/Bush/Rockerfeller/Henry Lodge styled candidates forever.
pretty simple...he builds stuff....
I agree somewhat and would rank the hot button issues:
1A Deporting ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS
1B Return of manufacturing jobs
The ILLEGAL ALIENS hit multiple issues:
1. Jobs available to Americans (Economy)
2. The destruction of the American culture
3. Crime wave from ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS
4. Potential to create a permament majority of leftwing socialist voting class
The ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADER issue is the tip of the spear in Obamatollah’s promise to “fundamentally change” America...and most Americans are beginning to see the disastrous results.
reindustrializing America via trade deals and tax incentives will cure a lot of ills......no other candidates get it.
Trump talks like a man and not a neutered panty-waist...
...or Allen West
If you are still on the fence, it is time to unite behind The Donald. His ability to “Make America Great Again” can best be assured by a historical landslide.
