Grand Old Working Class Party?

Two new data analyses from Patrick Ruffini of Echelon Insights and Dante Chinni of NBC News cast some more light on the working class-ization of the Republican party. Ruffini's data are by race and education and are based on 2012-2016 exit poll data and their own cooking for 2020. Chinni's data are from (presumably pooled) NBC News surveys and are based on party ID within occupational categories (still trying to get more info on how exactly Chinni did this and definitions of blue collar/white collar).
Two different portraits of a decade's worth of change. Hardly the final work in either case, but should be very interesting indeed to all thoughtful Democrats.
