"So we have another poll with Trump doing better with those in the $50-100k income range than he does with those over $100k."

Surely this does not shock you, correct?  It totally tracks the CW.

No, it doesn't shock me, but it is a brand new thing, compared to past elections.  In 2008, the Obama/McCain margin was the same for those in the middle income group as for the upper income group, if we trust the exit polls.  But in every other presidential election since the dawn of polling, the GOP candidate's best income group was the rich.  So to see the GOP candidate actually do better with the middle income group would be totally new.


Putting aside that many rich might perceive that Trump has temperament issues, it's also brand new that a Pub candidate advocates policies (to the extent he has any that are other than just idle talking point jive) that would screw the rich too.
Who would actually benefit from from teh Donald save Big Oil? I would say unions but...

Trump has always done better with middle class voters - it's been his base.

There have definitely been *some* polls that have him doing best with the wealthiest income group, but most of them seem to have him doing best with the middle.  But I haven't systematically looked at every single poll to track this.  I'll be interested to see what the national exit poll looks like on this question.
