Trumpís Nationalism Is Breaking Point for Some Suburban Voters, Risking G.O.P. Coalition
The New York Slimes ^ | 01 NOV 2018 | Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns

HOUSTON — J. Mark Metts, a 60-year-old partner at one of this city’s prestigious law firms, had never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate until 2016. Now he and some of his neighbors in the moneyed River Oaks enclave of Houston are about to oppose a Republican once again, to register their disapproval of President Trump.

“With Congress not really standing up to Trump, this election is becoming a referendum,” Mr. Metts said, explaining why he would no longer support the re-election of Representative John Culberson, an eight-term Republican.

Mr. Culberson is now running roughly even with the Democratic candidate, Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll last week — an extraordinary development in a district that has not elected a Democrat since before an oilman named George H.W. Bush won here in 1966, and one that illustrates how difficult Mr. Trump has made it for his party to retain control of the House.

If the 2016 election hinged in large part on a rightward shift among working-class whites who deserted Democrats in the presidential race, Tuesday’s House election may turn on an equally significant and opposite force: a generational break with Republicanism among educated, wealthier whites — especially women — who generally like the party’s pro-business policies but recoil from strident, divisive language on race and gender.

Always comedy gold when Manhattanites tell 98% of the US what they think, do, say and how they vote.

Wrong. Trump's pro-American viewpoint sits very well with the legal, law-abiding citizens of the USA.

PS - any story that uses the cliche ‘cold open’ is suspect.

Someone called it the Tyranny Of The Anecdote.

More alt-world fake reality from the radical left. Amazing these stereotypes are still in business.

If there are GOP-ers out there who do not love their country, and wish the best for it, then good riddance.

What utter tripe. “Yessiree, Bob, I was all for jobs and a good economy and freedom and dignity, but man, when the guy who got elected on America First said he was a nationalist, why, that just tore it.” Said no one ever, anywhere.

Two writers on their byline; the more writers assigned to a story, the more lies it contains.

I doubt very much that the River Oaks zillionaires are very worried about a bunch of Hondurans moving in next door.

Who cares what these guys think?

NY Times engaged in its regularly work - pushing narratives, emotion and phony analysis for a political purpose.
