Report: DONALD TRUMP Doesn’t Need Latino Vote to Win – He Can Win With Black Voters

trump

A SurveyUSA poll released Friday shows that 25% of black respondents said they would vote for Trump over Clinton.

According to The American Mirror Trump would more than double the best result for a Republican in modern American history… Looking at the last 10 presidential election cycles, the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996.

Trump does not need the Latino vote to win.
Bruce Bartlett at The Washington Post reported, via Instapundit:

But if Trump could replace Latino votes with those of another large minority group that traditionally votes Democratic, he might have a fighting chance at victory. And even without changing his message, black voters could be that group.

African Americans have long been receptive to the anti-immigrant concepts behind Trump’s campaign. Simply put, the jobs, housing and other opportunities that immigrants take come largely at the expense of blacks who were born in the United States.

As long ago as 1881, the abolitionist Frederick Douglass complained that immigrants from Ireland, the Latinos of the day, were stealing jobs from African Americans. “Every hour sees us elbowed out of some employment to make room for some newly-arrived emigrant from the Emerald Isle, whose hunger and color entitle him to special favor,” Douglass wrote in his autobiography. A few years later, in his famous Atlanta Exposition address, Booker T. Washington begged white employers to reject “those of foreign birth and strange tongue and habits” in favor of native-born blacks, who had toiled “without strikes and labor wars.” By 1916, mass immigration had made black workers “superfluous,” the New Republic charged. The immigrant “is the Negro’s most dangerous competitor,” it said.

Black newspapers opined in favor of the Immigration Act of 1924, which enacted the first major restrictions on immigration. In an editorial, the Chicago Defender said: “With the average American white man’s turn of mind the white foreign laborer is given preference over the black home product. When the former is not available the latter gets an inning.” The labor leader A. Philip Randolph went even further, saying the Immigration Act wasn’t enough. “Instead of reducing immigration to 2 percent of the 1890 quota, we favor reducing it to nothing,” he said. By 1993, poet Toni Morrison put the issue succinctly in an essay for Time, saying, “Whatever the ethnicity or nationality of the immigrant, his nemesis is understood to be African American.”

Economically, the division is beyond doubt, and Trump could exploit it if he chose to. According to the Census Bureau, the incomes of black households have long been considerably lower than the incomes of Hispanic households. In 2013, the former had a median income of $34,598, while the latter had a median income of $40,963, a difference of nearly 20 percent.

Blacks today make up 22% of the Democratic vote. If Democrats lost 25% of the black vote they would lose Virginia, Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.

If Trump would skim off 25% of those voters from the Democratic Party he would win the 2016 election in a landslide.

    Not only this, Trump also appeals to a large number of Hispanic citizens. A recent poll I saw had almost 30% of hispanic Americans support Trump.

    Despite the lies and racist rhetoric of the Luis Gutierrez and Jorge Ramos crowd, Trump is NOT against hispanics or immigration… only ILLEGAL immigration. and there is a large section of the hispanic community that agrees with him on that.

    Trump 2016.

  • randy

    Sure, I could see 25% voting for Trump over the old hag Clinton, but they would never vote against Michelle Obama, who will be our next president in a landslide.

  • Circa53

    All he needs is the White Vote to Win..He doesn’t need the mexican or afro vote to succeed..

  • Angel6670

    So much for the Hispanic vote that the Media keeps saying every candidate needs to win and quite frankly, I bet he’ll get the Hispanic vote as well, since most want a country that has a hold on their immigration laws and a sovereign nation.

  • LarDog

    Hey, ya hear that, Jorge Ramos?

  • WackoBird McCraziePants

    Donald is separating the 20% of hard core leftists from the rest of us.
    In other words…landslide!

  • DoubleD2015

    Trump will win more Hispanics than Romney did, more Independents, more Democrats, more women, more GOP base, more Blacks and most of all more sleeping giant voters than Romney did. Its going to be a blowout in the general if Trump wins the nomination.

  • India Maria

    Quite true. Yet, as an armchair student of things “Hispanic”, let us remember: AMERICAN, voting, taxpayers of Hispanic Origin are the ONLY “Hispanics” that matter. Thus far a lot of the polling is being done by telephone and by chance may be American Voters, but also are often Mexican Nationals and ILLEGAL INVADERS. Yet NON VOTER’S opinions are often counted, and surely ILLEGALS do not support Trump. But there is mounting anecdotal evidence that American Voting Hispanics will support Trump in the plurality (Nevada poll, PPP National Poll, e.g.). Big Tend, winning trends….at last.

  • formwiz

    We’ll see. Polls are very suspect in my eyes, but, OK, 25% of blacks and 30% of Hispanics, if he can do it, wins in a landslide and creates a new coalition.

  • formwiz

    This is what I mean.

    There’s a skew in most of these polls and it’s used for propaganda purposes.

  • Paul

    Nonsense

  • SWohio

    The GOP ‘strategists’ are losing their minds.

  • Homebuilt14

    Donald Trump is a candidate for ALL voters. That is why he is doing so well.

  • Patty

    I think he will pick up some Latino voters, too.

    LOL!!

    While the point is very valid and totally true, the comparison between today and the Irish from years ago is not quite valid in that today’s problem is MUCH worse. The Irish came aboard boats and had to funnel through Ellis Island. Today’s problem is ILLEGALS flooding uncontrollably across our southern border; no comparison to the Irish doing it legally.

  • EJFrench

    You are nuts.

  • Aqualung

    Trump said many times he loves Mexico, loves Mexicans, loves immigrants but opposes illegal immigration. Yet they — even many Republicans — continue to accuse him of racism.

  • pgroup

    “creates a new coalition” is the winning phrase for me. Anything but the dinosaur GOP we have now.
