You miss the point that the Left Progressives push an intersectionalist agenda of identity politics that villifies whites, the military, males, working class, heterosexuals, rural, and married people while idolizing illegal aliens, criminals, flag disrespect, and urinating in the streets. Much of the current Left Agenda is a smorgasbord of popular front victimology that has literally no connection to classic economic class-oriented populism. Possibly a majority do support some amalgam of moderate Left economic proposals. But Trump’s program of tariffs, better trade deals, rebuilding infrastructure, pressing companies to build factories and keep jobs in the US, and ramping up energy production to boost American jobs definitely has populist appeal. The fact is large parts of the traditional factory worker, labor union, staunchly Democrat block do not identify with the national Democrat party or its agenda.
