Sorry Will but the Democrats have given up on the working and Middle class way before 2010.
This goes back at least since 1979. Remember it is not just the Presidency but congressional races and Governorship's as well.
This is not to say that the working class do not suffer from an elitist mentality and a disdain of those in the cities as well, that is how tribalism works. Those who love NASCAR also look down on those who follow Mozart and sip Lattes. Tribalism again
