There’s increasing overlap among white evangelical voters and white working class voters without a college education. Both groups were key to President Trump’s victory in 2016. But while evangelicals have historically voted for Republicans, a sizeable chunk of working class voters had aligned with Democrats up until then. Now Democrats are trying to woo some of those voters back to the party. We’ll likely see some of those overtures during the first round of the Democratic debates tonight.
