Working class citizens in the UK staged a massive uprising.

They rejected the elites’ support for open borders, mass migration, and global trade deals.

And it could spell the end of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.

In Britain, voters approved a referendum to leave the European Union.

Many pundits found parallels in the forces that drove the Leave campaign to victory and Donald Trump’s path to the Presidency.

In what was dubbed “Brexit”, many rural working class voters rebelled against what they saw as global elites wiping away their national identity through immigration, multiculturalism and international trade deals.

After the vote, the press rushed to interpret the results.

And there was some agreement that the working classes’ revolt in Britain could foreshadow how Donald Trump will defeat Hillary Clinton.

The Washington Post reports:

Looking ahead to the fall, though, loud alarm bells should be going off inside Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters. Globally, there are strong tides of anti-establishment anger, nationalism and populism that bode poorly for the Secretary of State.

“Trump’s slogan, ‘Make America Great Again,’ could easily have been adapted to the messaging of those in the ‘leave’ campaign,” Dan Balz writes from London. “That desire for a return to an earlier time — to make Britain great again — is expressed through the issue of control. Those who have pushed for Britain to leave the E.U. want to reclaim a measure of sovereignty by wresting power from the bureaucrats in Brussels. … They feel about the E.U. bureaucracy as tea party Republicans do about the federal government.”

 Trump also took to social media praising the vote to leave the European Union and frame his campaign against Hillary Clinton as a contest between nationalists and globalists.


Will Trump’s strategy work?

Right now, he is trailing Hillary by six points in the Real Clear Politics polling average.

But the polls in Britain all showed the Leave vote trailing in the final days, too.

Did those polls undercount conservative voters?

Or are nationalist-minded voters less likely to express their true feelings to pollsters?

After watching Leave win on account of the same issues as Trump’s campaign platform, some pundits believe it would be unwise to put too much stock in the polls.

After all, the same constituency that pushed the Leave campaign across the finish line – white working class voters – forms the base of Trump’s support.

White working class voters turned out in greater numbers than expected for the “Brexit” vote, and here in America, they helped Trump win record votes in the Republican primary.

There is a rising tide in Europe against globalism.

Will it carry across the Atlantic and push Trump to victory in the fall?
