"Economic Anxiety Didn’t Elect Trump and It May Hurt His Party in the Midterms"

Opinion piece, but based on data gathered by pollsters. As always, polls can be wrong but the numbers are interesting:

What about Trump voters overall? They actually reported less economic distress than those who voted for Hillary Clinton — and again this was true at every income level. Moreover, Mr. Trump’s earliest supporters, those who voted for him in the primary, reported less distress than did the primary supporters of either Mrs. Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Similarly, the much-discussed “Obama-Trump voter” did not report distinctively high levels of economic distress.

All of this squares with research using surveys conducted during the presidential campaign: economic distress was not a distinguishing feature of Mr. Trump’s support, especially compared to attitudes about race and immigration.

If anything, economic distress is now a drag on Mr. Trump’s support.
