If one believed the press one might reasonably conclude that Trump has it in for minorities. But it’s tough to reconcile that claim with reality.
This might be a good opportunity to fact-check the lie which served as the cornerstone of Joe Biden’s presidential run. The one about “Very Fine People“. But we’re going another direction with this story.
President Trump has won the highest share of non-white voters of any Republican presidential candidate since 1960, according to preliminary results from Tuesday’s election.
Roughly one quarter of non-white voters cast their ballots for Trump, according to an Edison exit poll. If the poll is an accurate reflection of final results, Trump will have won over more non-white voters than any Republican since Richard Nixon, who won 32 percent of the non-white vote in 1960 but lost to John F. Kennedy. Trump will also have improved on his performance in the 2016 election when he won 21 percent of the non-white vote.
…the Edison poll showed that support for Trump rose among African Americans, Asians, and Latinos. In particular, 18 percent of black men voted for Trump in 2020 compared with 13 percent in 2016, and black women increased support for Trump from 4 percent in 2016 to 8 percent in 2020. Trump also roughly doubled his share of gay voters.
It appears that support among Latinos buoyed Trump victories in several key counties in the Sun Belt. Trump was able to score a win in Zapata County, Texas, by 52-to-47 percent over Joe Biden. The county’s population is 94.7 percent Hispanic, and elected Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016 by 65-32 percent. –NationalReview
So the good news — come what may with the Presidential result this year — is that the left has so completely overplayed the ‘racism’ accusation that it no longer has the vilifying effect it once had in politics.
It’s also BAD news because now ACTUAL bigots needn’t feel any shame for getting called out on their ugly behavior. The name is losing its sting.
By the way. Since Biden likes to play the guilt-by-association game…
How about this:
I voted straight Dem. In referenda, I also voted FOR the expansion of gun rights in the state and AGAINST the expansion of marijuana legalization. To hell with libertarian ideology. I’m a libertarian when I want to be.
