FIRST HE DROVE AWAY THE MORMONS....:

High-Income Voters Favor the Democratic Nominee for First Time in Decades (Eric Levitz, 9/21/16, New York)

Donald Trump is making high-income voters Democrats again. A new poll from Bloomberg Politics shows Hillary Clinton besting Trump among voters with annual household incomes of $100,000 or more by a margin of 46 to 42 percent.

If Clinton maintains that advantage through Election Day, it would mark a new milestone on the Democratic Party's long path to conquering the upscale electorate. In exit polls of 2012, Mitt Romney defeated Barack Obama among voters earning $100,000 and more by a ten-point margin. And no Democratic nominee has won that demographic since Bill Clinton's reelection in 1996. Before that, the party hadn't won the cohort for decades.
