Will Poor Whites Still Support Trump If Food Stamps Are Cut?

One of Trump‘s most loyal voting blocs are non-college-educated whites and blue collar whites, many who live in poverty and require public assistance. With whites being the largest group to receive social services, like food stamps, will this change now that the Trump administration has a drastic plan to slash food stamps?

Yahoo reports, “New rules proposed by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) would see stricter work requirements for food stamp eligibility, and change the way 40 states enroll families into the program, officially called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).”

The site continues,” 3.7 million fewer people would receive SNAP in a typical month, 2.2 million households would see their average monthly benefits drop by $127, and almost a million students would lose access to free or reduced lunches.”
