Trump hosts a ‘Latinos for Trump’ roundtable in Las Vegas

President Trump will host a Lations for Trump event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Can’t say that this is good or bad, when the movement is to eliminate the class warfare and designations, yet politically it seems to be uppermost on candidates minds. Get the Black vote, get the Asian vote, get the Latino vote??

Yes, in the big, macro, long term picture, I agree. It is the content of character that matters, not the color of skin.

In the short term though, for the election, measuring who is voting for who is important. For example, experts say that if Trump were t ain a 20% black vote, that would be the end of the Democrat party.

" . . . A recent, admittedly controversial Rasmussen Reports poll showed African-American approval of Trump at 36 percent.

Even 20 percent African-American support for Trump would all but dismantle Democratic Party presidential hopes for 2020. Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election with 88 percent of the black vote. That was about a six-point falloff from Barack Obama’s share of the black vote in 2012.

But far more importantly, an estimated 2 million of the African-American voters who cast ballots for Obama in 2012 simply did not show up at the polls in 2016 to vote for the off-putting Clinton.

Even a small drop in African-American turnout or anything less than the usual 85 percent to 90 percent supermajority for a Democratic presidential candidate on Election Day can prove fatal.
