So, I know that most of Trump’s supporters are in fact Democrats from blue states, because of this article from the New York Times.
Donald Trump holds a dominant position in national polls in the Republican race in no small part because he is extremely strong among people on the periphery of the G.O.P. coalition.
He is strongest among Republicans who are less affluent, less educated and less likely to turn out to vote. His very best voters are self-identified Republicans who nonetheless are registered as Democrats. It’s a coalition that’s concentrated in the South, Appalachia and the industrial North, according to data provided to The Upshot by Civis Analytics, a Democratic data firm.
New York Values
Now, let’s see the New York values that Trump trumpeted in his recent debate with Ted Cruz.
Trump says this:
Now, what that short video carefully and you will find that New York Values mean the following:
- on gay marriage: “too premature for me to comment on”
- gays in the military: “not something that would disturb me”
- abortion: “I’m very pro-choice”
- partial-birth abortion: “No, [I would not ban partial birth abortion]”
Trump says SIX TIMES in that 1-minute video that these 4 points are “New York Values”. These are the New York Values that Ted Cruz disagreed with in their debate.
Trump’s donations to Democrats
Trump donated to Democrats, especially in the election that put Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in power.
Between 1989 and 2010, The Donald gave $314,300 to Democratic groups and candidates and $290,600 to Republicans, according to a Daily Caller analysis of records maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.
But Trump’s donation gap was even larger during the mid-2000s, which saw the end of Republican congressional majorities and the ascendance of the Democratic party.
So, Trump supporters support donating to Democrats, and they support Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
Trump supports New York City mayor Bill de Blasio
Trump also supports Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City:
Business mogul Donald Trump is optimistic about the future of New York City if Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio wins the mayoral election.
“I think pretty strongly that he’ll end up being a good mayor, maybe a very good mayor and I don’t think he’s going to want to kill the golden goose,” Trump told an Albany radio station Thursday, according to the New York Daily News.
Let’s find out what Bill de Blasio is like, so we can find out what policies Trump thinks would be good for New York city.
De Blasio supports universal pre-K:
Establishing universal pre-K was a hallmark campaign pledge for de Blasio — an expansion he said could be achieved by raising taxes on New York’s wealthiest residents.
De Blasio opposes the police:
Many are blaming the murder of two New York City cops on Saturday afternoon on Mayor Bill de Blasio following his recent support for protesters in the city marching in opposition to a grand jury’s decision to not indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner.
Hundreds have taken to social media to say that de Blasio has ‘blood on his hands’ and should ‘be charged with murder’ after the two men were killed ‘execution style’ in Brooklyn.
What’s more, many feel that de Blasio should not attend the officers’ funerals, this after many members of the NYPD signed a petition asking that the Mayor not attend their service should they be killed in the line of duty in light of his recent actions.
Donald Trump supports de Blasio, and so do his supporters. These are the views of Trump and of Trump’s supporters.
I hope everyone understands what New York values are now, and understands what Trump voters are supporting. This is what Trump voters believe.
