 Our Leftist-in-Chief would rather see working-class Americans eking out an existence on food stamps and welfare, rather than helping them become self-sufficient.  
 
And yet, Obama and his would-be successors, along with their leftist policies remain popular among working-class Democrats. 
 
 
She's not the only one.  I've been wondering this very same thing myself.
 
I read an article once years ago, probably during the 2000 or 2004 election about a cultural split within the Democratic Party.  The author observed that Democrats came in two varieties:  "Walmart Democrats" and "Starbuck Democrats."
 
As you could probably guess, the People of Walmart are the party's proletariat.  (Hey I often go to my neighborhood "Wally World"). While the party's apparatchiks are the "Starbucks Democrats."
 
Whether Democrats are Walmart shoppers, or coffee snobs; both often consider some pipelines more equal than others...
