    and the divide is breaking down because a lot of Republicans have parents or a disabled family member on Social Security and Medicare that need those programs because they will not be able to financially make up for the lost of such programs.  They also have children in horrible student loan debt with no job prospects or are also becoming underemployed.  This will also hit Republican families just as hard as it has been hitting Democrat families.  I think more Democrats have felt it first because they went after the labor and social services jobs and all but eliminated them.  And now they are moving to destroyed more opportunities that effect Republicans as well.

    I remember back in the 1980s it was the college educated that were becoming more Republican than Democrat because college education raised you up through social mobility.  The Republican rise has been through social mobility and now that it is dead I think more people are waking up to that fact.  Although we are still not quite there yet.  The more things do not improve the more people will realize that something is wrong no matter what side politically your on.
