That doesn’t mean she should have said it, just that she wasn’t wrong.

In June, the Pew Research Center found that 79 percent of Clinton voters believe the treatment of racial and ethnic minorities is an important issue, while only 42 percent of Trump supporters feel that way. As I wrote previously, earlier Pew research found that Trump supporters were significantly less likely than other Americans (and supporters of other Republican presidential candidates) to think that racial and ethnic diversity improves the United States.

Research by Washington Post pollsters and by University of California at Irvine political scientist Michael Tesler, among others, have found that Trump does best among Americans who express racial animus. Evidence indicates fear that white people are losing ground was the single greatest predictor of support for Trump — more, even, than economic anxiety.

Few people embrace the “racist” label, so let’s help them. If you are “very enthusiastic” about a candidate who has based his campaign on scapegoating immigrants, Latinos and African Americans, talked of banning Muslims from the country, hesitated to disown the Ku Klux Klan and employed anti-Semitic imagery — well, you might be a racist. But if you are holding your nose and supporting Trump only because you think him better than Clinton, that doesn’t put you in the basket.

    Looks like all Hillary is guilty of is ripping the band-aid off.

      maybe the gopers can hold several multi-million US taxpayer dollar hearings on that one also?

        Well we both know they will at least have a reason for one, but I feel secure that Hillary and the new Senate will not allow that.

  • 62% of Likely Voters agree, as does (R) Colin Powell confirms, Basket of Deplorables: Secretary of State Colin Powell’s private email account revealed the retired four-star general called Republican U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump “a national disgrace and an international pariah.”

    In one of the emails, Powell calls Trump’s birther investigation a “racist” movement which incorrectly states that President Barack Obama was born in a foreign country. “Yup, the whole birther movement was racist,” Powell wrote. Commenting on Trump wanting to know if Obama was Muslim, Powell wrote, “As I have said before, ‘What if he was?’ Muslims are born as Americans everyday.” “The emails are accurate. No further comment at this time,” Peggy Cifrino, an aide to Powell, told CNN.
