Many Democrats want to see American society transformed by migration and diversity, according to a survey by the left-leaning Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI).
“More than six in ten Democrats (64%), mostly agree that they prefer the U.S. to be made up of people from all over the world” — instead of from American families and communities, said the survey …
The results showed that Democrats are becoming increasingly radical but also that more Republicans are openly opposing their planned demographic replacement — and that Latinos increasingly dislike imposed diversity.
For example, more Republicans are resisting the nation’s open-door policy, according to the poll:
Republicans (28%) are less likely to have positive views of immigrants today than they were in 2018 (34%) and in 2011 (39%), and have grown more likely to believe that immigrants threaten American values (71% today, 65% in 2018, and 55% in 2011).
‘Two-thirds of Republicans (65%) say instead that immigrants are a burden because they take jobs, housing, and health care,” the report said. …
Now that the ruling class get most of the money, we don’t talk about economics any more:
PRRI president Robert Jones spotlighted the huge shift in American politics since the 1950s-era.
Back then, domestic politics were dominated by left vs. rights arguments over how to distribute the huge profits generated by the nation’s huge manufacturing economy.
Those class-and-wages politics continue, but they get little attention from the establishment media since the bipartisan establishment doubled immigration in 1990. That doubling helped to stagnate wages, supercharge the stock market, and also shifted media coverage onto the “diversity” disputes that are used to break up the social norms developed by Americans to help share civic and economic wealth. …
The western left shifted from defending the working class to a coalition of fringes and demographic replacement around 1990:
Democrats have moved left on immigration and diversity since 2012, largely because they followed their Democratic leaders, who have increasingly championed the claim that the United States is a diversifying “Nation of Immigrants,” not of Americans. This stance has also prompted Democrats to revive racial demands so they can argue that Americans’ culture must be transformed by migrants and diversity. …
One reason for the Democrats’ comfort amid diversity is that their coalition is increasingly based on the groups that oppose Americans and their pro-solidarity norms. Those groups include religious minorities, status-seeking college progressives, immigrant cultural minorities, comfortable suburbanites, investors, and corporate employers.
“Democrats are four times more likely to say the decline of the white population in the 2020 Census is mostly positive vs. negative (39% vs. 9%),” the survey noted.
In contrast, Republicans “are more than five times less likely to say this change is positive vs. negative (6% vs. 33%),” the report said.
The poll showed that college-educated Americans are especially eager to welcome lower-status and often compliant migrants: “White Americans with college degrees are more likely than those without college degrees to hold positive opinions of newcomers (69% vs. 43%).” …
Immigration hurts the country class but helps the ruling class:
Many polls show that labor migration is deeply unpopular because it damages ordinary Americans’ career opportunities, cuts their wages, and raises their rents. Migration also curbs Americans’ productivity, shrinks their political clout, widens regional wealth gaps, and wrecks their democratic, compromise-promoting civic culture.
For many years, a wide variety of pollsters have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by young U.S. graduates.
This opposition is multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-based, bipartisan, rational, persistent, and recognizes the solidarity Americans owe to each other. The polling — and the census data — debunks the 1950s claim by Mayorkas and other advocates that Americans must live in a “nation of immigrants.”
Yet business and progressive groups repeatedly insist that 300 million Americans must subordinate their priorities to the goals of migrants.
Follow the money. Money also flows from power, and power flows from votes, which can be encouraged to flow along ethnic and racial lines. What a fine mess the left have made of white countries!
