A recent in-depth YouGov poll contains a fascinating series of questions about perceived differences in which major political party cares more about members of various demographic groups than the other does. In most cases, self-identified Democrats say Democrats care more about the group in question and self-identified Republicans say Republicans care more about the group in question.
Groups for which members of each party say their own party cares more about (in no particular order of importance, merely the order that the survey displayed the results):
– People like me
– American workers
– All people
– Regular Americans
– Legal immigrants
– The middle class
– Poor people
– Black people
Since partisans like to think of themselves as the good guys, this trend is unsurprising. That a certain group votes overwhelmingly for one party doesn’t keep members of the other party from thinking their party treats said group better–by more than a 2-to-1 margin, for example, Republicans say the GOP cares more about blacks than Democrats do.
The exceptions–where Democrats say Republicans care more about the group in question than they do, or vice versa–are thus telling when it comes to who it is considered cringeworthy to purport to care about.
Groups Republicans don’t care about:
– Illegal immigrants
Groups Democrats don’t care about:
– Wealthy people
– White people
Normies know it’s uncouth to care about the rich and the corporations they run, but how many realize Democrats essentially pride themselves on not caring about whites, men, and Christians? The white Christian male trifecta is as deplorable as it gets.
