Political representation for the middle classes
Most political parties aim to benefit the upper classes (lots of influence) and lower classes (lots of voting power). How about a party that aims to bring more people into the middle classes and represent them fairly.
In the UK between 1945 and 1970, 66% of the middle class voted Conservative and 62% of the working class voted Labour. This is no longer so for a variety of reasons. This article explains why.
Is class, still a thing. or are we talking about wealth?
Democrats are attracting more affluent voters. Maybe because many of their representatives are from well-off families.
Interesting idea, but how do you do that? According to Leonard Beeghley “Many politicians, heirs to fortunes, top business executives such as CEOs, successful venture capitalists, and celebrities are considered members of the upper class. Some prominent and high-rung professionals may also be included if they attain great influence and wealth. The main distinguishing feature of this class is their source of income. While the vast majority of people and households derive their income from salaries, those in the upper class derive their income primarily from investments and capital gains.”
