Professor Paul Red Pills the Left: Democrat Party Increasingly Represents the Rich

“Democrats won back the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections thanks to strong gains among the rich,” writes Williams College political science professor Darel E. Paul. “What many pundits have described as a Republican rout in the suburbs is nothing less than the party’s sharp decline among the wealthiest American households.”

Paul backs up his findings in a new article in First Things, America’s most influential journal of religion and public life.

The upshot of the 2018 midterms is that the Democratic Party now overwhelmingly represents America’s rich. At the same time, Democrats continue to represent the poorest Americans, at least those who are not white. Managing this contradiction is ever more the party’s great challenge.

You can check out professor Paul’s full analysis in the following article, The Rich Turn to the Democrats.

First Things is published by the Institute on Religion and Public Life. They describe themselves as “an interreligious, nonpartisan research and educational 501(c)(3) organization.” It was founded in 1989 by Richard John Neuhaus and his colleagues, in part, to “…confront the ideology of secularism.”
