The NY Times is reporting that GOP party leaders fear the party is permanently split on class lines.
“The Republican Party has never done anything for the working man like me, even though we’ve voted Republican for years,” said Leo Martin, a 62-year-old machinist from Newport, N.H., who attended Mr. Trump’s Claremont rally. “This election is the first in my life where we can change what it means to be a Republican.”
Does the article beg the question whether the modern GOP ever offered anything to working voters but racist pandering, homophobia and sexism? Why did the split take so long?
