Census Data Reveals GOP Is Party of MIDDLE CLASS by 2-1 Ratio – Gateway Pundit

In late March 2014 the Associated Press (AP) reported that eight of ten US House of Representative Districts with the highest annual mean incomes were districts held by Democrats.

This was somewhat surprising as the media constantly labels Republicans “the party of the rich.”  The article went on to list the top ten Congressional Districts predominantly on the East and West Coasts and led by several well known and very liberal Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Henry Waxman and Jerry Nadler.

In response to this article, we decided to review the most recent Census data ourselves and see what other items of interest might be found hidden in this data.

Progressives Today first collected the 2012 US census data housed at the government census site.  We also obtained a list of Congressional Representatives and their party affiliation from the US Congressional website for the 113th Congress voted into office starting in 2012 and combined these files into one massive spreadsheet to obtain relationships.

And, what we found was truly shocking.

The party of the very rich and the very poor.  The party that incessantly talks about the importance of the middle class but whose policies do nothing but destroy it.  After seeing the census data in this article, there should no longer be any surprise as to why.
