    Trump’s Success With Non-White Voters Signals the Future of the Republican Party

    Trump’s Success With Non-White Voters Signals the Future of the Republican Party

    “When the dust settles on this campaign, you will find that Donald Trump — whether you like him, love him or hate him — has the most diverse coalition of voters of any Republican ever in Florida”
    Listen to this article

    Trump performed extremely well in this election with Latinos and other non-white voters. People are already speculating about a new Republican coalition made up of working people, including minorities.

    This would be an extremely effective combination.

    Josh Hammer writes at the New York Post:

    Despite ‘racist’ charges, Trump did better with minorities than any GOP candidate in 60 years

    For four years now, Democrats and their media allies have tarred President Trump as a reprehensible white supremacist leading a dying party. The Trumpian, populist GOP, they claimed, was doomed to become a regional rump party, whose electoral prospects were tied to a shrinking share of bitter, downscale whites.

    That narrative was always bunk. It finally died, once and for all, on Tuesday evening.

    Team Trump and Republicans nationwide made unprecedented inroads with black and Hispanic voters. Nationally, preliminary numbers indicated that 26 percent of Trump’s voting share came from nonwhite voters — the highest percentage for a GOP presidential candidate since 1960.

    In Florida’s Miami-Dade County, the heartland of Cuban America, Trump turned a 30-plus point Hillary Clinton romp in 2016 into a narrow single-digit Joe Biden win. Texas’ Starr County, overwhelmingly Mexican American and positioned in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, barely delivered for the Democrats. Biden’s Hispanic support in other key swing states, like Ohio and Georgia, tailed off from Clinton’s 2016 benchmarks.

    Tucker Carlson talked about Trump’s surprising success with non-white voters on his show last night:

    Missouri Senator Josh Hawley sees where things are heading:

    Politico notes the coalition the Trump campaign put together in Florida:

    That new coalition will be central to continued Republican success in the state. As one Republican put it, “you’ve got to kind of recognize that old white men are dying.”

    For Trump, that meant adding to his support of conservative-leaning Cuban Americans and older white voters. The campaign wooed non-Cuban Hispanics and put a greater emphasis on conservative South Florida Jewish voters.

    The campaign also sought the support of Black voters with messaging focused on school choice and the Trump administration’s funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, something that it hadn’t done in 2016.

    Ryan Tyson, a Tallahassee-based Republican pollster and consultant who tracked Trump’s performance across the state, said the president’s ability to pull support from traditionally Democratic demographics played a huge role in his win.

    “When the dust settles on this campaign, you will find that Donald Trump — whether you like him, love him or hate him — has the most diverse coalition of voters of any Republican ever in Florida,” said Tyson, who has worked extensively with GOP campaigns. “I know that will offend a lot of people on both sides, but the data is pretty clear on this point.”

    Democrats have become the party of Hollywood, academia, and coastal elites.

    The Republican party should continue to reach out to and welcome all minorities with an emphasis on working people, taxpayers and those who want law and order.

    Hispanics are not “non-white” people. They are Americans of Hispanic descent, like Italians, Greeks, Swedes, Jews, Swedish-Jews etc.Frankly, I don’t even know what the concept “white people” is, except maybe as to WASP preppies. Who cares, just so long as they don’t forget how to do their ethnic cooking.

    You could also just call this people who aren’t gullible enough to be duped once again by the hollow promises of socialism.

    IMO, the 2016 election of Trump began the vital reform of the gop.

    The 2018 midterm say the resignation of 36 r house members, many of whom were comfortable with the uni party DC status quo.

    In 2018 and in 2020 more r members elected that are at.a minimum not inclined to favor the uni party, establishment status quo. They are not all fire breathing Trumpians but are definitely more truly conservative.

    Same in Senate. No not everyone sent to DC is 100% reliable but we are a damn sight better off. At least these new folks do more than posture.

    The r party is back to it’s roots as a multiethnic, more populist main Street, small business party. In other words a Jacksonion party that embraces being of and for the Yeoman.

    A party that values and welcomes everyone who embraces our philosophy. We don’t elevate immutable characteristics above individual achievements.

    This is very positive for the party and the Nation. More folks will take a look at joining. The longer they look the more they will discover that they actually agree with us.

    Political realignment is slow until it isn’t. A snowball or cascade effect takes hold.

    Returning to her conservative roots: Pro-Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, free of the progressive influences that normalize diversity, exclusion, and adversity.

    But none of this is to the credit of the Republican Party. It was all Trump’s doing, and when Trump is gone, expect the GOP to go back to their do-nothing basements.
