Stumbling toward 2018

How will Democrats fare in the 2018 elections?
They feel they can ride a wave of anti-Trump sentiment to big wins in the House and Senate.
Maybe not.
In May, the Public Religion Research Institute released a report, “Beyond Economics: Fears of Cultural Displacement Pushed the White Working Class to Trump.” It found that
“more than half (52%) of white working-class Americans believe discrimination against whites is as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities” and that “four in ten white working-class Americans agree” with the statement that “efforts to increase diversity almost always come at the expense of whites.”
There's a lot of people who won't consider Democrats, no matter what Trump does.
