Since middle class is not clearly defined people say whatever comes to their mind about them.

Even if we ignore the part about middle class, there are about 700 million people in Europe, 300 million in the USA, and maybe a few hundred million more in other Anglo settler colonies. With a world population of 8 billion, 30% is about 2.6 billion, and the number is clearly far off from that (not even half).
