Trump will win the white working class areas of NYC

Places like Staten Island, Whitestone, Bayside, Glendale, Queens. Places like Bay Ridge, Brooklyn on April 19. Some of those places love him.

1. Well, if we nominate a candidate ho doesn't give a shit about working class people of any race, sure

 

"Vote for me, you worthless fuckers" isn't exactly a resounding campaign message.

4. Some of those areas do. Glendale is a Giuliani area.

 

I know because I travel around there sometimes. It's going to be a interesting race on Tuesday.

3. I thought the "White" working class was voting for BS?

5. Good news for Bernie

Good chunk of those voters are registered as Dems, and can't vote for Trump. They will have to settle for Bernie.

6. He's not going to win NY.

 

But some of those areas may go for him. Some of those voters are swing voters. They voted for Rudy Giuliani for mayor in '89, '93, and '97. They would have voted for Giuliani again in 2001 if he had gotten the three month extension after 9/11.

7. This is a dangerous demographic for Democrats

 

A lot of these people have been loyal to the party for many years. They are union workers and middle class whites. Over the last decade, the Democrats have been slowing losing these voters. They don't feel the Democratic party is representing their issues any longer. Their biggest priority? Economy, trade, and jobs. And that's why Bernie is doing so well with them.

The question is if Hillary is the nominee, will they continue to stay loyal to the party? Trump may be able to make inroads with this voting demographic. And that should be a serious concern for Democrats because many of these voters are in battleground states.

This is why I have said that Cruz will be easier to beat than Trump. I don't care what the polls say...Trump can beat Hillary. Cruz can't.

9. Some of them are Dems. Some of them did not want to vote for David Dinkins in 1989

 

The first African American mayor of NYC. Some of them are just worried.

10. It worries me some but I think the number of GOP who are never Trump

 

may even that out some. I think if Hillary can bring excitement to the party which I think she can, we will win our first third consecutive Presidency Administration in a very long time.

11. Honestly, there isn't much exciting about Hillary Clinton

 

She might bring some excitement to some women eager to have a woman president. But beyond that, you have two very unlikable candidates. That isn't going to bring much excitement.

The #NeverTrump and the #BernieorBust folks are who will cancel each other out.
