Who supports $1,400 checks?
We know exactly who the Republicans are who support the $1,400 checks. It is the “Right Populists.” The people who are opposed to it the strongest are the Never Trump True Cons or Free Marketeers and to a somewhat lesser degree what used to be the old Republican base before Trump.
The GOP is split about 60/40 on economics. This is why I continue to stress that it is close to a tipping point. If more former Democratic and Independent working class voters continue to become Republicans (an entirely plausible and even likely scenario), it could tip the scales. Sure, the Republicans are luring more working class voters with culture war rhetoric, but those voters haven’t changed their minds on economics. What’s more, the affluent, college educated suburban Republican who is a True Con fiscal conservative with modernist and cosmopolitan values are the disaffected wing of the party.
