Sunday on CBS’s “Face of Nation,” USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s supporters are “uncomfortable” with a black president.
While discussing a focus group of Trump supporters Page said, “We had Frank Luntz say that if there hadn’t a President Barack Obama there wouldn’t be candidate Donald Trump. I think you did hear in the focus group people who are maybe uncomfortable with African-American president. I bet they are not happy with the rise of Hispanics as such as important new part of the American electorate. Even climate change treaty we know from polling that Trump supporters tend not believe in climate change. So here is president and a time that has, and a nation, that has moved in direction that made many Trump voters generally uncomfortable fueled his support.”
