Vox’s Jonathan Allen: Trump Appeals to Angry Nativists, Sexists

Vox chief political correspondent Jonathan Allen reacted to Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s showing during Thursday’s GOP Debate in an appearance on Saturday’s “Up with Steve Kornacki” on MSNBC.

Allen said Trump “still appeals to the people he appeals to who, are angry and in a lot of cases nativist, and maybe in some cases sexist.”

“I think he’s brought out an ugly part of America in a lot of ways,” he added. “I also wonder the extent to which some people who don’t like the media and don’t like pollsters are telling pollsters they’re gonna vote for Donald Trump but wouldn’t actually pull the trigger.”
