At first glance, it looks like Freepers seem a lot more confident of their candidate. But I'm coming to believe that's all bluster. Because it's not just the level of denial unskewing the polls in 2012 or just assuming we'd never elect a Hussein in 2008; these hyperbolic landslide predictions just seems more desperate, more straw grasping with even less authority than in 2012. And it's not helped by the current witch hunt for anyone less than madly enthusiastic about all things Trump.
As Freepers' list of trusted sources has recently shrunk to mostly fringe blogs, the reasoning becomes quite confused. Some Freepers presume a silent white majority will sweep Trump to victory. Other Freepers seem to have internalized the GOP 2012 post-mortem enough to realize that the minority vote turns out to be important. - but Trump is going to win them over with his awesomeness.
Their latest straw they grasp is a conservative-commissioned poll of registered (not likely) voters. It finds Trump leading Hillary by 10% among Hispanics, and managing to pick up 17% of blacks.
Freepers eagerly build a tower (wall?) of crazy on this doubtful foundation.
C19fan knows that unlike other races, hispanics vote with their manliness:
The question about black voters is if they will show not not whether they will go to the polls. Hispanics luv caudillo types like The Donald, :0.nicksaunt also with the Hispanics will love alpha male Trump:
Legal immigrants want this invasion by the illegals stopped. Also, Trump is an alpha male, which is a trait admired in the Hispanic culture. The percentage of Hispanic votes going for Trump will be the surprise of the evening on election night.GilGil is still busy grasping at the previous straw - Hillary lost the West Virginia primary to Trump!
I’m thinking that black vote for hillary is elevated because of the primaries against Sanders. They’re choosing Hillary now. That doesn’t mean they’ll stay with hillary when they’re comparing her deficiencies vs Trumps attributes.Valpal1 explains that legal immigrants don't mind if you crap on their native land at all!
I am thinking of that exit poll in West Virginia that said if democrats were given a choice between Hillary and Trump 30% would vote for Trump.
Keep in mind that when Clinton was running against Obama, she carried all the counties in WV. Against Trump she lost them all.
So this democrat poll is significant.
I don’t think Hispanic support of Trump is strange at all. Register voters are more likely to be legal immigrants and my experience is that legal immigrants are just as exasperated with the illegals as the rest of us because of the rampant criminality of the new arrivals.AustinBill knows Trump will win over blacks by yelling about illegal immigration, which has never been done before:
Many immigrants came here legally to get away from the crime and corruption and would like very much to have the carnivores shipped back to their native habitat and kept there by a fence.
Democrats traditionally enjoy 95% black support (Obama was at something like 98%). For Hillary to be at 87% this early in the campaign means she's in big trouble among a core constituency in the general.GraceG knows Hispanics love their stongman dictators almost as much as Freepers!
Trump will only gain in this demographic as he hammers away on the theme of black unemployment, how the illegal immigration problem has disproportionately affected opportunities for black Americans, and the fact that Democrats have done nothing to address this yawning problem.
You can bet that democrats will be watching this statistic closely as it has the potential for devastating down-ballot repercussions.
Low information voters seem to be attracted to a “stongman”.Weird double typo there.
This is why in all the third world countries that have elections, “stongmen” are usually preferred by the people.
It could be the very strategy of the left importing under-educated third worlders is about to back fire in a very epic way....
Mr. K read one poll where...
I read one poll where blacks are already at 25% supporting Trump (which will grow)GilGil dares to dream:
That is a nightmare for HilLIARy
Imagine if on election day House Republicans and senate Republicans increase in number and Trump wins as president.jbb247 concentrates on the conveniently protean Real Man vote:
The punditry will have been 100% wrong and Romney and Bush will appear on milk cartons!
Any man with half a ball will vote trump. Black men included.Welp, I guess there weren't as many half-balled men as I thought!
