How Trump Can Win the General Election
Trump already has the white vote so he has plenty of time in the general election to focus on minorities (or soon-to-be majorities) -- and he may have a better than even chance of getting them, mainly because their lives have been so miserable under Obama and the Democrats in general. You think they don't know liberal programs have been a failure for decades? They live it. They just need someone to remind them and tell them how they could fix it.
That could be Trump if he makes a serious effort to go into their communities. He'll certainly get their attention. Love him or hate him, everyone wants a piece of The Donald. It's the huge advantage he has as a mega-celebrity. Why should he stop now?
African Americans particularly may be surprisingly easy. They've had the most abysmal time of all under Obama, who acts as if his existence alone is enough to lift up the black community. And when he does log in, all he does is stir things up and make things worse. Have we heard of even one new program for African-Americans under Obama?
Trump has already been in the black community and received a surprisingly good response from African-American ministers. I would imagine that would have encouraged him to do more in the general election. The Donald seems to like praise (understatement of the year).
Latinos will present greater challenges for Trump, but even there he can make inroads. He's got two potential Latino running mates (Rubio and Cruz) if he can restrain himself from insulting them too much in the next few months. Who knows?
It's clear, however, there's one group The Donald will never get now and we all know who they are -- Muslims. Fortunately for Trump, they are, for the moment at least, a small voting bloc.
