    Trump's play is to go for the broader white vote and address their concerns. He hopes to take white voters off the Dems and leave them as the party of the ethnic minority, champion of the illegal immigrant. I have no idea if it will work, I just think there is a chance this election might not follow the old rules about needing X% of the Hispanic vote to win.
    Back in the 90s California had a ballot proposition that basically just affirmed that people who received publicly funded welfare, education or healthcare must have legal status, as a citizen or legal alien. It passed with just about 60% of the vote, but this result was challenged as discriminatory to Hispanics and the liberal courts in California agreed. The governor, Democrat Grey Davis, put a stop to appeals of this ruling and the voters were overruled by the governor. Ironically Grey Davis was thrown out of office a few years later by a recall election. The voters showed that they are willing to vote on this issue, but in typical liberal maneuvering the voices of the citizens were silenced. The ballot measure itself didn't really outlaw anything that wasn't already illegal, it just added a few enforcement powers to legal authorities so they could have checked legal status before granting social services, that type of thing. The governor basically upheld the right to illegally obtain these publicly funded services, which still baffles me...as does the claim that the proposition was discriminatory based on race. Logically, the liberals claimed that to stop an illegal activity is racism if most of the perpetrators of that illegal activity belong to one ethnic group. Insane but true.

        Only because they don't offer the Obama one...little bigotry towards white people here?



        Funniest thing...everybody hates and blames the white people, but they can't wait to get to America so they live next door to them.

          Trump is about to lose favorability among Asians...or maybe not. Last weekend in Iowa, he mocked Asians using a fake accent.

            I don't know...it is impossible to do an Asian accent with "We want deal". I think some people are trying too hard to find everything he says offensive.

            If you want to call anyone out it should be Jeb Bush who said that "anchor baby" did not refer to children of illegal Hispanics but to children of rich people from China.
