43. Putting the 'Blue' Back in Blue Collar

May 7, 2021

A Monmouth University poll late last month, for example, found that 57% of whites without a college education back Biden's infrastructure plan compared to 39% who oppose it, while 53% back the American Families Plan and 44% oppose it.

Among income groups, people earning less than $50,000 a year were most supportive of both the infrastructure plan and the families plan, in the Monmouth poll: 76% support the infrastructure plan and 21% oppose it. On the families package, 74% of people earning less than $50,000 are in favor and 25% are against it.

"There's some ground softening with that group," says Patrick Murray, director of the poll. While those voters might be more conservative on issues like immigration and social issues, they care about kitchen-table economics, and "that's exactly what the Biden administration understands," Murray adds.
