A recent survey indicates that former President Donald Trump has gained significant support among Republican voters with lower incomes and no college degrees.

The poll, conducted by The Center Square and Noble Predictive Insights, reveals that Trump leads with 61% support among likely Republican voters, far ahead of other GOP contenders.

Notably, his support is strongest among those earning less than $50,000 and those without a college degree. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Art Scheme Exposed By GOP Probe)

The survey suggests that Trump’s policies and persona have contributed to his appeal among the working class.

“With the growing diploma gap between the two parties, if college-degree Republicans are softer in their support of the former president come the general election in November, that may pose a challenge for a candidate that believes he can only win his base and secure an electoral victory,” Catawba College politics department chair Michael Bitzer said.

“The other interesting dynamic is among suburban Republican voters compared to urban and especially rural Republican respondents,” Bitzer said.

“Compared to almost two-thirds of urban and rural Republicans supporting the former president, the below 60% of suburban voters supporting the former president in the primary may be another warning signal for the general campaign, since nationally so many suburban areas tend to be the swing areas of deciding November’s election.”

“Trump’s strength with the working class is a product of policy and persona,” Noble Predictive Insights chief of research David Byler said.

“On policy, he moved the GOP away from supply-side economics and toward tougher immigration policies – the working-class wing of the GOP wanted that for a long time. He made those moves and built unique credibility with working-class voters.”

“Persona is also part of the equation,” Byler said. “We let Trump supporters tell us, in their own words, why they backed him. And a decent chunk of his loyalists said he was tough, a straight-shooter and honest in a way that other politicians aren’t. Not every voter thinks this persona is genuine – but his supporters do.”

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party has been attracting wealthier Americans, potentially impacting its support among blue-collar workers.
