Blacks (whether they have native or Caribbean roots) see through the same lense on national political issues. On the other hand, substantial numbers of Latinos (largely of Cuban descent) bitterly oppose the so-called Dreamers (many of them of Mexican and Central America descent who want to see immigration laws liberalized). Obviously, other issues are at play also.
If the word "some" is added to Trump's boast that "Latinos love me," the boast would be true. But his assertion of love from Blacks is bullshit, which is to say fairly standard Trump talk.
A Quinnipiac poll shows 1 percent of blacks back Trump, versus 33 percent of Latinos. This comes as Latino and Black journalists are about to hold their Unity conference (August 3-7 in Washington, D.C.). The numbers should be grist for many discussions . Overall, the Quinnipiac poll reveals deep demographic divisions that make this presidential election cycle so full of bitterness. American voters are deeply divided along gender, racial, age and party lines.
"White voters back Trump 47 - 34 percent. Black voters back Clinton 91 - 1 percent and Hispanic voters back her 50 - 33 percent. Voters 18 to 34 years old go Democratic 48 - 23 percent, while voters over 65 years old go Republican 51 - 35 percent."
The gender divide is striking and worrisome. "Women back Clinton 50 - 33 percent while men back Trump 47 - 34 percent."
