According to a study from PRRI, white working-class Americans are increasingly feeling like strangers in their own country, believe their way of life has deteriorated since the 1950’s and say discrimination against whites is becoming a major problem.
• Nearly two-thirds (65%) of white working-class Americans believe American culture and way of life has deteriorated since the 1950s.
• Nearly half (48%) of white working-class Americans say, “things have changed so much that I often feel like a stranger in my own country.”
• Nearly seven in ten (68%) white working-class Americans believe the American way of life needs to be protected from foreign influence. In contrast, fewer than half (44%) of white college-educated Americans express this view.
• Nearly seven in ten (68%) white working-class Americans—along with a majority (55%) of the public overall—believe the U.S. is in danger of losing its culture and identity.
• More than six in ten (62%) white working-class Americans believe the growing number of newcomers from other countries threatens American culture, while three in ten (30%) say these newcomers strengthen society.
• Nearly six in ten (59%) white working-class Americans believe immigrants living in the country illegally should be allowed to become citizens provided they meet certain requirements, while 10% say they should be allowed to become permanent legal residents. More than one in four (27%) say we should identify and deport illegal immigrants. Notably, support for a path to citizenship is only slightly lower than support among the general public (63%).
• More than half (52%) of white working-class Americans believe discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities, while 70% of white college-educated Americans disagree.
• Fewer than four in ten white working-class Americans report they are in excellent (5%) or good shape (33%) financially, compared to six in ten who say they are in fair (35%) or poor shape (25%). White working-class Americans about as likely to say their financial situation has diminished (27%) as they are to say it has improved (29%). White college-educated Americans, in contrast, are about three times as likely to say their financial circumstances have gotten better than gotten worse (41% vs. 14%, respectively).
• A majority (54%) of the white working class view getting a college education as a risky gamble, while only 44% say it is a smart investment.
• Six in ten (60%) white working-class Americans, compared to only 32% of white college-educated Americans say because things have gotten so far off track, we need a strong leader who is willing to break the rules.
Let’s look at the actual data.
Demographics have shifted dramatically since the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.
Violent crime rates have skyrocketed and despite falling since the 1990’s are more than double what they were in 1960.
Out of wedlock births, which lead to total societal collapse, are skyrocketing.
Economic gains are mostly being concentrated in the hands of a tiny globalist elite.
Debt levels across the board have skyrocketed.
The US went from a creditor nation to a debtor nation.
Deaths of despair among the white working-class are surging (and this is being cheered by the left).
White women are now drinking themselves to death at record rates.
Women’s happiness is falling as they’ve been told to reject hundreds of thousands of years of tradition and take on traditionally male roles.
Divorce rates are also way up.
All that said, on the bright side we’ve got more taco trucks than ever.
