Hopely so.

In 1968 a young political science major helped former president Nixon draft his political strategy, helping him win the elections of 1968 and 1972.

It was based on the theory that the average voter never attended college, didn't live on the Ease or West coasts, wasn't a school teacher or soical worker, or a poor minority working a low paying job or on welfare.

Instead, he was a tool and die maker, living in Topeka, Kanas, had no more than a high school education, at best, was affluent and intensely patriotic.

Also, writing about blue collar workers in the early 1970s, a Boston psychiatrist wrirtng in, "The New York Times Book Review" said: "They hate Jews and blacks and  and people on welfare. They hate protesters and homosexuals and do-gooders and outsiders. But nore than anything else, they hate women and spend much of their time pursuing them.

Are the above the absolute truth? Of course not, but I am afraid there is some truth in them, especially at the time they were written.

I was a blue collar worker all of my life. I have been a motion picture projectionist, warehouse worker and taxi driver. Yet, those of you who have read my book, "I Thought I Would Never Make It Throuth The 4th Grade' know that I have strong liberal views.

Now that blue collar workers are an minority, it will be interesting to see if they can change.
