Trump can beat Hillary because white men won’t vote for her
Two articles in the New York Times: One from yesterday and one from three days ago.
1. John Harwood explains that Trump can beat Hillary if he captures 4% more of the white vote than Romney captures in 2012.
“She’s talking to minorities now, not really to white people, and that’s a mistake,” said Dennis Bertko, 66, a construction project manager in Youngstown, Ohio, as he sipped a draft beer at the Golden Dawn Restaurant in a downtrodden part of town. “She could have a broader message. We would have listened.”
And the articles don’t even mention the black vote. Blacks love Donald Trump also. No, Trump isn’t going to win even close to a majority of the black vote, but if he wins 15% instead of the 6% that Romney won in 2012, then he doesn’t need to capture a full extra 4% of the white vote.
Also, Trump’s victories in Hawaii and the Northern Mariana Islands indicate that Trump does well with the Asian and Pacific Islander votes.
