Bro, he wins everything. He won the women vote, he won the latino vote, now he's got the KKK vote. All he does is win.

But seriously, has anything hurt him? And you think this will? Come on now.

There are people on the fence at the edge of Donald Trump's camp? I pretty much think the fence is built pretty low between undecided voters and crazy town.

The fence there has to be low. They are saving fencing materials for Mexico.

Yes and no. It will not hurt him in the GOP race, but it may well hurt him when he tries to appeal to a wider audience.

Not exactly the endorsement I am sure he was hunting for, but I'm sure he won't throw out any vote. I am not sure that it really matters though, given their lack of numbers. Most Americans probably couldn't tell you who David Duke is, if you asked.

I want someone to challenge him to put his money where his mouth is, go out on Fifth Avenue, and shoot someone to see if he'll lose any votes.

But can he rally the Robert Byrd supporters ? Now that would be a mean feat, taking the voters from two racists.

Wrong! Trump has NOT won the vote of either most American women or most Hispanic Americans.

With regard to David Duke, Trump has repeatedly denied ever having heard of Duke before -- even though he's already been asked about Duke's endorsement numerous times over the ensuing months since August 2015, thereby rendering invalid any notion of his not having heard of Duke before.

> Excerpts from the February 24, 2016 Inquisitr.com news story by Jonathan Vankin entitled:

Donald Trump Polls: 1 In 5 Supporters Disagree With Freeing Slaves And Call Whites The Superior Race

Two new polls of Donald Trump supporters reveal some unusual attitudes that may help puzzled political pundits to explain the rapid rise of the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star to the top of the Republican Party and in position to quickly lock up the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

Trump’s rise has generally been attributed to “voter anger.” As recently as Tuesday, before Trump’s latest victory in the Nevada Republican caucuses became official, United States House Speaker Paul Ryan claimed that Trump’s shocking ascendance can be traced to widespread anger over President Barack Obama’s economic policies.

“You have conservatives, like myself… who are very upset about the direction of the country,” Ryan said in a CNBC interview. “You have people in America panicked because they have economic anxiety.”

Other political analysts have likened the extreme popularity of Donald Trump to the surprising success of Democratic “outsider” candidate Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, saying both are the result of “anti-establishment anger.”....

But the recent, separate polls by YouGov and Public Policy Polling — and reported in the New York Times on Tuesday — reveal that a significant portion of the Trump’s supporters are motivated not simply by anger at economic policy that they perceive as misdirected, or even in a general sense at “the establishment,” but, in fact, by something less socially acceptable.

According to the data compiled by YouGov, nearly 20% — about 1 in every 5 — of Donald Trump supporters disagree with the Emancipation Proclamation, the 1863 executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln which freed all slaves in Confederate states.

That total for Trump supporters is four times as high as the response when the same question was asked to supporters of Marco Rubio, the Florida Senator who is considered the leading Republican Establishment candidate. 5% of Rubio backers said they disagreed with Lincoln’s executive order to end slavery in the United States.

But that seemingly bizarre result may be explained in part by the response to a Public Policy Polling question which asked Republican voters in South Carolina whether they believed that whites are a superior race.

Overall, 10% of South Carolina Republican primary voters agreed that whites are a superior race. But among Donald Trump supporters, that number was 16%, close once again to 1 of every 5. (Also, 14% of Trump supporters — again, higher than supporters of any other candidate — said they were not sure about the answer to that question.)

While the openly racist attitudes found in the polls were shared by a minority of Donald Trump supporters — albeit a larger minority than among backers of any other Republican candidate — a recent study conducted by political scientist Matthew MacWilliams revealed another unsettling trend among those who say they will vote for the hotel and casino impresario: There is one trait that does statistically predict whether a voter will become a Donald Trump supporter -- Authoritarianism.

“People who score high on the Authoritarian scale value conformity and order, protect social norms, and are wary of outsiders,” MacWilliams wrote on the political site Vox on Tuesday. “And when Authoritarians feel threatened, they support aggressive leaders and policies.”

In a national survey conducted through the University of Massachusetts, MacWilliams found that whether voters become supporters of Donald Trump could not be predicted by their age, geographic location, income, or education.

"Only Authoritarian attitudes and fear of terrorism — not income, age, education, or even race — predict with statistical significance whether someone will support Trump,” MacWilliams wrote, adding that “fear of terrorism” was a less significant factor among Donald Trump supporters than their Authoritarian personality traits.



On Oct. 26, 1977, David Duke meets newsmen near California's border with Mexico to detail how Klansmen there are looking for illegal aliens entering the country.
