A closely followed Fed official said Thursday that he would favor a rate hike this year if the economy performs in line with forecasts. And their growing allegiance to the Republicans is, in part, a reaction against what they perceive, among those below them on the economic ladder, as a growing dependency on the safety net, the most visible manifestation of downward mobility in their declining towns.
