Is the Democrat party the party of the little guy?

Karl Zinsmeister writes that the Republican party is no longer the party of "elites." That more accurately describes today's Democrat party.
As Daniel Henninger has noted, it is "becoming harder by the day to take the Democrats seriously as the party of the common man." The financial pillars for Democrats are now super-rich trial lawyers, Hollywood entertainment executives and megabuck financiers. Both parties have their fat cats, obviously, but Federal Election Commission data show that many of the very wealthiest political players are now in the Democratic column.
