That's a generalization that the media and right wing is happy to play up and I'm not sure it has any base in reality. The people attending his rallies are fed up Americans of every persuasion.
Just who's pockets are being picked is also debatable. If you turn your head slightly it is very easy to see the corporate executives picking the proletarian pockets to fund their lavish gated lifestyles.
The stagnant wages at the bottom and exponential raiding at the top should be easy enough for all to see clearly, but wedge issues and selfishness/greed pervade.
Perspective my man. It's all in the perspective.
Let there be HIGH water!
