Old white men love them some Trump

All 4 of these white former state of Indiana coaches have endorsed Trump:
Bobby Knight. Indiana Univ basketball
Gene Keady Purdue Univ basketball
Lou Holtz. Norte Dame football
Digger Phelps Notre Dame basketball

I've been flipping back and forth from CNN and MSNBC watching reporters talk to voters leaving the polling stations in Indiana....almost every white male over 50 voted for Trump...one was a hard core anti abortion guy and he voted for Cruz.

One older female Democrat, Hillary supporter said she crossed over to Repub to vote for Cruz because of how much she hates Trump.

1. Yup...and there's not enough of them to put him in the White House

 

Not enough of them period regardless of age to put him in the White House. He is relying on a base of voters that decreases with each Presidential election cycle to get him into the White House. Its such a fail strategy for the Republicans.

6. The reporter asked if she's for Hillary

Why she wouldn't vote for her in the Dem orimary.
The woman said she thinks Hillary has the Dem nom wrapped up.
She said she could live with Kasich as President and might be able to tolerate Cruz.
But, she seemed terrified at the thought of a President Trump, so she doesn't want him to be the GOP nominee and have any chance to be Prez.

8. As a representative of your "old white guy" group...



...I have to respectfully disagree. In a completely non-representative, non-random, non-balanced survey among my friends in their 50s (many long haul republicans) there is a real sense of unease with Trump. While not the majority, several are seriously considering HRC because they can't abide by Trump's asinine behavior.

Like I said, not a representative sample but probably as representative as a bunch of former Indiana sports team coaches.

And next time you want to slam old white guys, you better be careful. I might just have to put my teeth in and give you a stern talking to...that is of course if I can still remember why by the time I find my teeth.

11. I'm one too....haha

So, I'm slamming my own demographic.
It's funny because when I'm around other old white guys and politics cones up, it's just assumed that everyone is a very conservative republican.
I just nod my head and listen until I cant take any more...then , I go order the early bird special after changing my depends in the non-transgendered allowed restroom.

14. Pampers, Huggies, Luvs vs. Depends. Know the difference?



With babies - when they need a diaper change - you luv em, you pamper em, you hug em.

With old white guys - when they need a diaper change - it depends if you're in the will or not.

9. Is that supposed to be a reason to hate Trump?

 

Or is it supposed to be an additional reason to hate old white men?

I get confused at the correlation/causality thx.

Why do you have an old white guy as your avatar?
