Its always sad when people think all blacks, all Hispanics and all asians think alike. America still has a very long way to go.

I do think Trump can get a larger share of the African American vote than people think. I wouldn't be shocked if he can get between 15-20%.

When I started hearing democrat ads on V103 and 107.9...it gives this feeling that democrats think black people are a lock. They think they have all of us locked into their web. This had me analyzing the other side. I voted for Obama, but a part of me regrets it. Dude is pudding soft. Way too passive. I really liked Rubio, but I dont think he is ready yet.

The problem is that Rubio has absolutely no foreign policy creds & she would make mince meat out of him in that aspect among several others in a debate.
He has missed tons of his Foreign Relations Committe & Intelligence Committee meetings in the Senate for which he has rightly come in for a lot of criticism back home in Florida.
As a result, he has made several really outrageous (i.e. stupid) foreigh policy statements that have caught my eye.

Rubio is toast as he has been revealed as an empty suit tool of the monied class, who want him to do their bidding. Namely endless wars and huge tax cuts for the rich.
I wish that I could claim that Rubio "toast" quote as my own.
Bravo!

If that were the case, there would be no need to waste money buying ads.

That would be a yuuuge accomplishment for the GOP. Reagan in 1980 (14%) was the last Republican to come close to 15% and Nixon in 1972 (18%) was the last to come close to 20%. In non-Obama years the GOP has hovered between 8 - 12% of the AA vote since 1984. Trump, nor any other possible GOP candidate, isn't going to effectively double the GOP share of the AA vote running against Hillary Clinton.

But you forget that he's endorsed by the KKK. So that should attract more of the black vote, right?

Seriously, non-white citizens are not going to vote for this man in any measurable or significant amount, and that makes it almost impossible for him to win.

Anyone seen some of these videos of minorities getting punched and kicked by mobs of angry white people at the Trump rallies? He is either not going to be the president, or, everything this country stands for will be flushed down the toilet, there will be mass riots, and millions of people will flee for tolerant/enlightened countries. One or the other will happen, most likely the former.

Whether or not he himself intends it or not, his movement and supporters resemble Nazi-style racist authoritarian fascism. He's appealing to the worst demographics we have, and firing them up and energizing them. It's white supremacy's moment.
