Middle- and upper-class  conservative white evangelicals do. T.B Edsall wrote that “the surge of whites into the Republican Party has been led by whites with relatively high incomes — in the top two quintiles of the income distribution — but w/o college degrees, a constituency that is now decisively committed to the GOP'

I was hooked when I read the opening of the column which said:"The other day, a buddy of mine who writes a liberal column for a conservative newspaper in a small town near me emailed me this email rejoinder to his latest musing:"You are the biggest unAmerican I know in Western Kentucky? Your articles show you are a damn Socialist, Abortion loving ass?? Are you proud of Nancy, Nadler and Schiff?? How about those Crooked Clintons?? You love the Illegal Aliens?? Open Borders??
