Editor’s note: This would be comical if it were not sweepingly wrong on so many levels. Most of the blog posting is Larry thinking that at last there’s a Republican coming into office that is as hardcore conservative as Reagan. He thinks all the Republican presidents since are too liberal! But it’s this bit about how blacks, Hispanics and young people, the very people who would be the most harmed by Trump’s stated positions, turned out in droves for the man that makes me laugh. That, and the fact that Larry really believes that Trump is about to fulfill all his fundamentalist Christian government fantasies. Very unlikely Larry, no matter how much you think. Will be monitoring Larry’s eventual disillusionment. He’s quite naive.
But Donald Trump knew that in order to win he could not win with whites alone as he would never get 100% of the white vote. So Trump targeted the black community and he actually did increase by a small margin the number of blacks voting Republican. Even for those blacks who did not vote for Trump – he planted enough seeds of doubt about Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party that for many blacks if they did not vote for Trump, they stayed home.
He made a great deal of promises to help the black community and if he carries through on even half these pledges he will likely grow the number of black voters voting Republican in the next election.
He also peeled off a few millennials as well and in doing so he cut into the new democratic coalition “of minorities, educated workers and millennials” while at the same time cutting into a traditional democratic strong hold – union workers.
In doing all this Donald Trump took states that had not been taken since Ronald Reagan took them in the 1980s. He did not hide this strategy but proclaimed that he would expand the Republican base in this way all through the primaries.
And make no mistake this election was about a lot more than getting more people to vote for Republicans than Democrats. It was about changing the way Americans think.
