>>If Trump can peel off even 20% of the black vote...<<
Trump has the better approach by saying 95% of blacks will vote for him when they hear what he has to say. You’re right that 20% would be great, but why not ask for all the votes. The rationale for blacks dumping the Dems wholesale is certainly there.
As for the line of pessimistic thinking about blacks being for “free stuff”, lazy people are for free stuff and laziness knows no color. There are plenty of white people in the “gettin’ my free stuff” line too.
The real issue is personal responsibility and getting ahead on your own, with help provided by others only when needed. Dem policies provide “help” to keep people locked in unproductive lives; GOP policies provide help when people are truly in need. Big difference.
This is a winning issue but people need to dump some preconceptions on both sides of it for it to take a serious hold. Once it does it could mark the end of Dem power, which is why they view Trump’s move as an existential threat. It is.
And Americans of other heritages, Hispanics, Asians, are listening and watching too.
