I ran across this piece of data in a memo on the new Democracy Corps poll. Yes, yes, I know, they're Democratic-oriented but they generally do good polls and play it straight with the data. What they found is quite extraordinary: white noncollege women in their poll were +2 on the generic Congressional for the Democrats while white noncollege men were +31 for the Republicans.
Wow. It's just one poll but if it's even close to what's actually happening with white working class women, the GOP is in big, big trouble. A pro-Democratic swing of that magnitude among this group would pretty much doom them in 2018.
