Well his core strength has always been in branding himself and marketing. It's also why he's showing such strong pole numbers despite being about as qualified to run the country as a pile of dog shit.

Now that's as nasty way to describe our current president as I've heard.

Well trump holdings is an llc which makes it a pass through company meaning he pays a personal tax rate. It's been a few years since I took tax law but I believe the highest tax rate is now 39.6%. That remaining sum will be taxed at New York State income tax at 8.82% and the remaining income would be hit with the New York City income tax which is around 4%. It's roughly 50% tax altogether.

I'm surprised Trump's birth certificate expedition hasn't been brought up more, although I suspect half of his supporters are still birthers. At the time, Trump's people were in Hawaii and "what they are finding is unbelievable," was his quote.

I believe Trump could get 35 to 40 percent of the African-American vote against Hillary.

More. Blacks know many menial jobs are being given to illegals over them, and so does White trash.

I'm guessing there won't be a huge African American turnout this year.

Totally forgot about that little episode in trumps life.

This is the real answer. Blacks won't turn up to vote for Republicans, they just won't vote. It's been like 70 years since the Democratic party hasn't gotten at least 75% of the black vote and that isn't going to change this year.

Depends how much pull Slick Willy has these days. He might be a big enough campaign force to pull turnout in the states where black turnout matters.

Don't know about that. I've worked with plenty of Blue collar Black people, and even they are getting tired of open borders. I've noticed this is in construction, and janitorial departments. For instance janitorial, and the restaurant industry had a large percentage of Blacks at one point. Now it's mostly Brown. There is some resentment in the Black community about immigration, and even some Chicanos want people to start being deported.

We'll see I suppose, but that sort of economic discontent seems like a slow moving thing. A 30 point swing seems...unlikely, especially with other concerns like the BLM movement pulling attention.

Anecdotally all of the black guys i work with support trump I just doubt there will be a large black turnout for either party. They got Obama elected, he promised them prosperity and last time I checked unemployment for blacks between 18-25 is still in the mid 30% range. They seem disenfranchised which is horrible even though my political leanings don't line up with most of them I've personally seen the why even vote, it doesn't change anything narrative.
