Trump would get only 6% of Dutch votes

Trump Supporters Defend Slavery as Benevolent

4 November 2016

The Trump campaign visited the home of Disney World in Orlando, FL where TYT’s Michael Shure asked supporters about why their candidate is the necessary response to the Obama presidency. Meet the people whose reasoning may soon control the most powerful military in the world, and, if you are American, govern over you.

Today, results were published of a poll among people in the Netherlands.

The poll’s question was, if Dutch respondents would be able to vote in the United States presidential election, they would then vote for Donald Trump or for Hillary Clinton.

Only 6% would vote for Trump; 73% would vote for Clinton.

The xenophobic PVV is the most right-wing party in the Dutch parliament; its leader Wilders is a Trump fan. Yet, even of PVV voters, only a minority, 25%, would vote for Trump; 50% for Clinton.

As far as I know, the poll did not have options like third party candidates, or ‘none of the above‘.

A new New York Times/CBS News Poll says what we all know — Americans are highly distressed by the state of this election and doubt the abilities of either candidate to unite the country after Tuesday. [Natalie Jackson, HuffPost]

‘MY JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE ALT RIGHT’ “I went to a white nationalist ethnostate in Indiana. I got bounced from a secret meeting in D.C. I spent weeks figuring out how hate gurgles up from the nastiest recesses of the internet. And I’m sorry to report that unconscionable racists will be a force in American politics well beyond November 8.” [Luke O’Brien, HuffPost]

    > Critics of Republican Donald Trump have cast his potential presidency as a threat to American citizens. The Humane Society Legislative Fund argues it’s a threat to animals, as well.
    >
    > Recent ads from the animal welfare group — which are airing in the battleground state of Virginia — begin with a picture of Trump’s sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., holding up a dead leopard they shot during a hunting trip.
    >
    > “A picture is worth a thousand words,” the narrator says. “So, what does this one say about a Donald Trump presidency?”
    >
    > The hunting habits of Trump’s sons are only part of the problem, according to the group. What’s more alarming, the ad says, is that the younger Trumps are gunning for seats in the presidential cabinet.
    >
    > Photos of a confined hog, a shabby dog and a distressed horse appear in the same shots in the TV ad as Summit Agricultural Group CEO Bruce Rastetter, Lucas Oil CEO Forrest Lucas and Oklahoma state Sen. Eddie Fields — men Trump appointed in August to his agricultural advisory committee.

    >
    > Electoral politics cannot be the primary focus of charities or social welfare nonprofits, but thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision in 2010, social welfare groups are allowed to run political ads that call for the election or defeat of federal candidates.

    > For its part, the Humane Society Legislative Fund casts itself as nonpartisan, endorsing candidates based on their stands on animal protection issues.

    > “Trump represents the greatest threat ever to federal policy-making and implementation of animal protection laws, and we are taking the unusual step of wading actively into a presidential campaign,” Michael Markarian, the Humane Society Legislative Fund’s chief operating officer, wrote in an October blog post .
    >
    > The group previously endorsed Democrat Barack Obama’s presidential bid in 2008 but did not spend money on ads in prior presidential elections.
    >
    > Trump himself has said little about animal welfare issues during the campaign, and he has not released a formal policy positions on such matters. But Trump this month accepted a $5,000 contribution from a political committee sponsored by the Safari Club International — the group supports big game hunting — and has periodically panned animal rights activists.
    >
    > “Ringling Brothers is phasing out their elephants. I, for one, will never go again. They probably used the animal rights stuff to reduce costs,” Trump wrote last year in a tweet after the circus decided to retire its performing pachyderms.
    >
    > Money in
    >
    > Sara Amundson, the executive director of the Humane Society Legislative Fund, said a big difference between the 2008 election and the 2016 election is money.

    >
    > Who’s bankrolling this foray into Election 2016? It’s not exactly clear.
    >
    > Amundson insisted her group was “transparent,” but she declined to identify any of its funders.
    >
    > She simply said the majority of the Humane Society Legislative Fund’s resources come from individual donors.
    >
    > Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton herself has criticized “secret, unaccountable money in politics ,” but Amundson said that didn’t describe her group.

    >
    > Its ads are currently airing in the Richmond, Virginia, media market, according to data provided to the Center for Public Integrity by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG .

    >
    > As president, Trump’s positions on animal welfare — and his sons’ trophy hunting — might not go over well with the nearly 80 million U.S. households that own pets.
    > On the campaign trail, Clinton herself once noted that “Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals.”
    >
    > The Humane Society Legislative Fund’s ads show that lobbying groups are making a last-ditch effort to use this hot-button issue to target swing states and undecided voters.

    > Don Black
    >
    > Don Black, the founder of the first major white supremacist website Stormfront.com and a former Ku Klux Klan member, said on his radio program earlier this month that he wanted his listeners to vote for and support Donald Trump.
    >
    > “Much of this world looks to this country as influencing their own counties for better or worse. Usually, typically for worse, but perhaps for the best this time,” Black said on the day of the primary in Florida, where he resides. “So despite all of our misgivings about not having the perfect candidate here, we are all pulling for him, voting for him if we can.”
    >
    > “It will be a fun night tonight,” Black added.
    >
    > Throughout Trump’s campaign, white supremacists have praised him for his positions and rhetoric on immigration and Muslims. Trump has disavowed their support, but that hasn’t stopped many of them from speaking publicly in his favor. In February, white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke also urged his supporters to volunteer for Trump’s campaign.
    >
    > Speaking on his radio program earlier this month, Black said, “I don’t particularly like him either but still support him.”
    >
    > “It is important, even though you might not like Trump, like me, he represents a movement, he represents an insurgency that will benefit our people,” he later noted.
    >
    > Trump, Black said, has energized a movement similar to the one tapped into by David Duke.
    >
    > “I don’t know how it will turn out in November, but it’s gonna be a hell of a fight. The battle lines are clearly delineated,” Black said. “We never seen anything like this in this country. So, and I’ve seen a lot personally. I remember in—I was 14 years old in 1968—when George Wallace ran as an independent from my home state but ran for president as an independent candidate.”
    >
    > He continued, “And he got some of the same kind of audience that Trump is getting, but the issues weren’t as clearly defined back then. Wallace at that point was still speaking in code words but now things are a lot different. I’ve seen other campaigns. The David Duke campaign which is very, very much like the Donald Trump except that David Duke knew more about the issues and talked about them, but the kind of support he had was very similar.”

    >
    > He noted the demographics have changed but “the enthusiasm among many of our people has increased.”
    >
    > “I think Trump has sparked an insurgency in this country, a movement,” he continued, saying he didn’t believe the movement would stop if Trump lost the election or the Republican nomination.
    >
    > “I’m very optimistic,” said Black.
