I just heard an interesting story on NPR's Morning Edition this morning saying that while Trump's base IS blue collar it isn't low income as is popularly claimed, it is primarily better paid blue collar workers without a college education with deep anxieties about outsourcing and "immigrants taking their jobs" as well as cultural resentments against "pointy-headed liberal" college-educated people.

No wonder he "loves the poorly-educated"...
It's just like "working poor" is a code phrase for "lower-class whites."
