Poll: Plurality of voters say Democratic Party fights more for the working class

A plurality of voters believe the Democratic Party fights more for the working class than the Republican Party, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Forty-six percent of registered voters in the Oct. 13-15 survey said the Democratic Party fights more for the working class.

By contrast, 36 percent said the same of the Republican Party.

Thirteen percent of voters said neither party fights for the working class, and 6 percent were unsure. 

Forty-six percent of respondents earning less than $75,000 per year said the Democratic Party fights more for the working class, while 31 percent said the same of the GOP.

Democratic voters were slightly more likely than Republican respondents to say their party fights for the working class, at 88 percent and 80 percent, respectively. 

A plurality of independents leaned toward the Democratic Party on this issue. However, one-third believed neither party fights for the working class.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 1,897 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2.25 percentage points.
