Now we know: Trump’s racist appeals have backfired

imrs.php

8/14/20
In the new NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll, he now trails Democrat Joe Biden 40 percent to 57 percent. In 2016, among all women, Trump lost 54 to 41 percent; that is now 59/35. Trump lost White female college graduates 44 to 51 percent; that is now 37 to 59 percent. White non-college-educated women went for Trump by a 61-to-34 percent margin in 2016; that lead is down to 52/43. Trump’s support from White men is also dropping. Among White men without college degrees, he has gone from 71/23 to 58/37; among White men with college degrees, Trump went from up 53/39 over Hillary Clinton to down 43/54 to Biden. And here is the shocker: His 20-point advantage among White voters (57/37) has disappeared (48/48). In short, college graduates have shifted overwhelmingly away from Trump (from a 10-point deficit to a 25-point deficit). Whatever appeal Trump is making to Whites by embracing the Confederacy and otherwise flaunting his white-supremacist views has backfired. Between his appeals to bigotry and his incompetent handling of the coronavirus, he has ceded college-educated voters to the Democrats, lost White male college graduates almost entirely and made his problem with female voters worse. He has not gotten a boost among less-educated Whites; to the contrary, he has lost support from these voters, too.

Aside from Trump’s continuing slide, the evidence of his negative impact on fellow Republicans is piling up. He is dragging the House down with him. Cook Political Report has shifted “ratings in 15 more districts, including 11 moves towards Democrats and four towards Republicans.” The Democrats are now favored to expand their lead. Now the Democrats are favored to win back the Senate. Both House and Senate Republicans may be damaged by Trump’s baseless attacks against voting by mail and his efforts to hobble the U.S. Postal Service. Whether intentional or not, Trump is sabotaging his own party. Rather than break with Trump, Republicans are like deer in the headlights, awaiting their fate. He’s convinced there is an electoral majority of voters out there — albeit one he must artificially devise by suppressing votes for Democrats — so consumed by white grievance that they are prepared to ignore his gross incompetence. The good news for America is that there are far fewer of those voters than necessary to return Trump to office, and millions of Americans (especially the college-educated) who are disgusted by Trump and his minions. This time, they won’t stay home or throw their votes away on a third-party candidate.

Trumpism is dependent on racism. Hopefully, the entire rotten Trump/GOP edifice will come tumbling down on November 3rd.

It won’t.

The conditions that allowed someone like Trump to come to power will still remain even if he loses.

And not only that, but Trump has just proven to every wannabe dictator waiting in the wings that openly attacking the Democratic Process will be met with approval by around 40% of the population, that is devastating in far more ways than even may of his detractors realize.

Oh, yes, President Trump and the GOP will be toast on November 3.

In its place will come our first genuine racist administration.

Everything will depend on one's ethnicity.

Ethnicity, not competence, will be the criterion for a job or university entrance.
Ethnicity, not the facts, will be the rationale as to whether or not you are prosecuted for a violent crime, such as murder or looting.

A lot of people who help vote in Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris are going to regret their decision, but it will be too late. As the saying goes: "Hell is realizing the truth too late."

Man, that's the exact facial expression the Stay Puft marshmallow man made when they crossed the streams. I'm almost sure of it.

Trump is nothing, if not photogenic!

Bull.

Biden is by far the most racist candidate either party has put forth in 50 years.

Immigration is an economic issue.

And seeing as how Trump is closing the gap, with many polls, including even CNBC, showing him 3 to 6 points behind, the electorate agrees.

Until 2008, you are correct. Up until then, ethnicity not competence, was the criterion for the job of president and vice president.

Well, we can do a small wager if you're so cocksure.

A signature for a month ... composed by the victor. You in?

And the book was terrible.

Is that why we have a white President and VP?

Biden is the one who is relying on racism to get himself elected. He owns blacks. If you are black and don't vote for him, you are an Uncle Tom. In fact, he doesn't even need to campaign. Black twitter will landslide him in every state.

"Trump’s racist appeals have backfired" except among certain posters in this thread... DP has a cabal of open racists that prowl the forums. I find it disturbing.

Ok, so the Presidents that owned slaves weren't racists?

It's almost like you haven't studied American History at all. Or maybe you read the books that said the Civil War wasn't about slavery and the slaves were all happy and joyful? Race/ethnicity has long had a huge impact on college admission/prosecution of crimes. It's only when there is some effort to correct those issues that you find some semblance of awareness.

Her Honor, the Mayor of Chicago, is quoted as saying that the looters did what they did because they were upset with President Trump's policies on COVID-19.

Yeah, right! I doubt that they even know the name of the President of this country, and they certainly do not know the words "COVID-19." They are very, very, very bad people who looted because they know that the powers-that-be will excuse them for anything they do because they come from an "underserved community" Ask those store owners whether they think that those looters are victims.

Oh, well, the Biden-Harris ticket will sweep the nation on November 3. It will be a great day for looters and murderers and sucker punchers and robbers.

But you're too lazy to post a citation.

And what does the Mayor of Chicago have to do with Trumps racism?

Nothing. Whataboutism.
