The presidential candidacy of Donald Trump is poised to shake up the political make up of America.

A higher percentage Democrats and Independents are moving in Trump’s direction.

Just one example is a black female Democrat in Atlanta who says Trump opened her eyes.

“Trump gives me real hope and change, not fake hope and change. I’m voting for America because I believe in America.

“I never thought I’d be saying these words about the country. Democrats don’t speak about the country but I’ve woken up, I’ve seen the truth and the truth is Trump, I believe in this guy to make our country better because our country is going to hell!

“My daughter can’t find a job, she’s a college graduate. Black men are 50% unemployed. Our borders are wide open. I love everybody don’t get me wrong, but we have to close our borders.

“Trump is speaking the truth and that is why I’m here.”

The woman went on to add that, “Democrats are crazy — I can’t believe I thought that way.” She said her husband supports Bernie Sanders and that she told him, “If he don’t vote for Trump, we’re getting a divorce.”

Fox News Latino reports:

The image of the Donald Trump supporter is that of an under-educated conservative white male.

That is partly true.

The more accurate depiction is that his supporters are also moderate Republicans, independents and – yes – registered Democrats who want a hard line on immigration.

“There’s some truth that there’s a unique Trump coalition that’s not just the conservative coalition, that includes socially liberal Republicans who know that Trump is not concerned about social issues,” says Alfonso Aguilar, director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles.

“And there are Democrats in the middle class who blame immigrants for taking jobs away from American workers,” Aguilar tells Fox News Latino. “Whether or not they feel Trump is an extremist on immigration, they agree with his position.”

A new survey released Friday by Mercury Analytics finds nearly 20% of the likely Democratic voters polled would cross over in the general election and vote for the Republican front-runner Trump.

When crossover voters were asked how sure they were, 63% of the Democrats who said they would crossover were “100% sure.”

Mercury Analytics dial-tested Trump’s first campaign ad, which touches on a variety of issues including ISIS, radical Islamic terrorism and illegal immigration. The firm found 25% of Democrats “agree completely” that the ad raised some good points;  while 44% of Democrats agree “completely” or “somewhat.”

“We expected Trump’s first campaign spot to strongly appeal to Republican Trump supporters, with little impact – or in fact negative impact – on Democratic or Independent voters,” says Mercury Analytics CEO Ron Howard, a self-identified Democrat.

“However, what we see is that among a segment of Democratic and Independent voters who don’t like the ‘messenger’ of Trump – the issues he is raising (Immigration, Terrorism) are real concerns they share.”

He adds, “The challenge to Hillary, if Trump is the nominee and pivots to the center in the general election as a problem-solving, independent minded, successful ‘get it done’ businessman – is that Democrats will no longer be able to count on his personality and outrageous soundbites to disqualify him in the voters’ minds.”

      What woman?

      • Abby

        read the article … if you can read

  • Soothsayer123

    For every Dem voting for Trump, five Repubs are voting for Clinton or Sanders or are not voting at all if he’s the nominee.

    • Mysterian

      Be so kind as to share proof of that statement.

    • SJMWilco

      NOT!

    • Abby

      then those who are voting for a Crony Capitalist like Hillary and a National Socialist like Bernie are not Republicans but are just Useful Idiots

  • Mixelflick

    If Clinton isn’t indicted then lying, cheating and stealing are clearly the way to the top in this country (as in the very top)!

    Something millions of Americans will have in mind, as they sit down to do their taxes soon…

    • Abby

      No one cares what Billy or Hillary have done legally but are worried about their future with millions of unskilled and H1B immigrants who have taken their jobs and have lower their wages because of the open borders and unlimited immigration promoted by Demos and RINOs

      • Rasputttin

        I care what laws she’s broken. She put top secret material in her personal email. That’s as good as if she just gave the enemy our secrets. She needs to spend the rest of her life in jail

  • bigike1313

    The decline of the middle class is cutting across all parties, hence the increased popularity of both Sanders and Trump in a “throw the bums out mentality.” Sanders want to give everybody everything while Trump wants to you to earn it, but on a fair playing field.

    • Nathan Bedford Forrest

      Sanders is one of the “bums”.

    • Abby

      Sander represents the extreme far left which has made the poor and middle class worse off than ever – why would any person especially the poor and middle class vote for more of the same and even worse by voting for Hillary or Bernie

  • Gas_Passer

    Go Trump!

  • UsedToBeDem

    Obama and the Democrats have pulled the biggest scam over the American People, especially the Blacks. It is refreshing to here they are starting to realize it and get out of the Democrat choke hold. Hillary is a fraud and liar, Sanders is a Communist that will sink America even deeper. Obama and his “gang” have destroyed the Democrat party.
    God Speed Donald Trump.

    • Abby

      Agreed – the Demos and RINOs have pushed economic fascism on the US Economy and Gov’t which has been bad for the US and especially bad for the Poor and Middle Class

    • Rasputttin

      If they were really waking up they’d vote for Cruz. Trump is just as much a big government guy as any democrat.

  • goldenrule

    Finally….is this the start of the awakening among blacks? Obama said he was going to be transparent….well, I think he has. He has shown us what he really thinks of Americans and the constitution and it sure ain’t pretty.

    • Abby

      The Demos want open borders to reward their campaign contributors but Americans and especially Blacks and minorities have had their jobs taken by unskilled and H1B immigrants after they have trained them, and have had the gov’t resources diverted to the immigrants away from American’s failing schools.
      why would anyone vote for Crony Capitalist Hillary or National Socialist Bernie

  • louis gamber

    Yes ma’am, we can’t understand why millions of people think that way either.

    • Abby

      Agreed = Demos get the minority vote but help corporations instead and support programs that hurt minorities … but they are brainwashed by the media and activists to vote for Demos

  • Hawkdriver1961

    This woman right here is what scares the living [email protected] out of liberals and Democrats. This is the dirty little secret the MSM are hiding and you can bet Trump is understated in the polls big time.

    • Uncle-Archie

      Very true,Progressives ,well many are plain idiots,but some and they are growing are starting to see the reality,i honestly can’t think of one thing the Democrats have stated that was not a lie.

      A new report on TPP by the way shows that Americans will LOSE over 400,000 jobs,not gain like Obama stated.

  • DevilDogsDaughter

    Raising a daughter and working that hard to put her through college and then NO jobs while illegals are pouring over our borders? No doubt a real eye opener for her. Hopefully, her husband will come around to sane reasoning before she divorces him. She reminds me of me many years ago and something I said to my husband when he told me he was voting for George McGovern! lmao

    Trump is a better example of what “Reaching Across the Aisle” should be. Attract those who wouldn’t normally vote with us with ideas that would benefit everyone.

      Awesome post! Would be beyond awesome if you would give links to sources where she is quoted saying those things.

      If you ever want to have some fun, google “who said it, Al Gore or the Unibomber.” There’s a test you take to see if you can tell which of them said which crazy thing. I was shocked at how poorly I did!

    • planet8788

      Hopefully they can get over the hate and start opening their eyes.

      • lopagus1

        a long road ahead…but there is hope.

  • MAH GRILLZ

    YOU FOOLS….It’s too late for the BLACK. The Democrats knew they would lose blacks after the halfbreed mongrel as elected as Prez.
    THIS IS WHY 37 MILLION ILLEGAL CRIMINALS were imported by the Democrats to replace the BLACK as the second largest voting block.
    The BLACK is now 3rd class citizens in their own country when they should be first, but they hate whitey so much – even 150 years after slavery, that they were BLIND as to what the Dems were doing to them.

  • planet8788

    Awesome… Awesome…

  • derek

    The Democrat policies hurt black people the most. Many are at the lower end of the economic ladder and more taxes and more fee’s and open borders hurt the people who are trying to work and make a living most.

    Most people just want to make life better for their children than they had.

  • Sam

    The politicians who want open borders and increased legal immigration aren’t interesting in doing what is right for this country. They are interested in big donations and big job opportunities from big businesses for their political cronies and their own families—both Democrats and Republicans. Democrats also think they will be gaining voters for their party. The people of this country cannot afford the burden of all these newcomers, whether illegal or legal. OUR people need the jobs. Our middle class needs tax breaks, not more taxes to pay for all the social services these people require. Once upon a time, new immigrants were required to show that they would not be a burden upon our social services system. Not anymore. Freebies everywhere. Extra expenses for education and social services at the expense of taxpayers. Aren’t we up to our goozles in debt anyway? Yes we are.

  • Trumprules

    Black are finally getting it. The Dems grand experiment has been the failure all of us smart people already knew it would be.

  • Wucash421

    I hope all that change Trump given her is good enough for enough crack to make her forget what she just said.

    Traitor.

    • OBUMYA

      it was crack that made her vote for you idiots in the past….
      Next?

      • EddyJJ

        She sounds drunk and coonish. Trump loathes minorities and will say anything to get elected.

  • EddyJJ

    No thanks, the GOP has become the go-to Party for racists and bigots. Most of the Red States are governed by the GOP and rank low in all statistics. Trump can have that Republicoon who probably wouldn’t care if he shot someone on 5th Ave.

  • Hotrod1962

    How is Trump an “extremist” on immigration when he only wants to enforce existing laws?

    • Uncle-Archie

      Crazy isn’t it?

      Canada enforces their immigration laws more than we do,matter of fact everyone in the known world does,,but that does not stop the corporate paid scum media and the idiot Progressives screaming “Racism” or some other BS.

      • Hotrod1962

        True…if we enforced our immigration laws like Mexico, we would be in much better shape.

    Black America may be the deciding factor for Trump. I’m a Cruz supporter myself, but I recognize the groundswell of support for Trump, based on Trump’s rare gift of saying what needs to be said without apology or equivocation. Trump/Cruz 2016!

    • Dustoff

      Agreed.

  • rdsouza

    “she told him, “If he don’t vote for Trump, we’re getting a divorce.”
    Dear lady from Atlanta: If he still doesn’t listen to you, tell him you will make him leave the country with Whoopi! That should fix him.

  • Deuce Luminox

    “The challenge to Hillary, if Trump is the nominee and pivots to the center in the general election as a problem-solving, independent minded, successful ‘get it done’ businessman – is that Democrats will no longer be able to count on his personality and outrageous soundbites to disqualify him in the voters’ minds.”

    I think that’s exactly what is going to happen. The man hasn’t been a success by shooting his mouth off. He shoots his mouth off because he’s been a success. He speaks without a filter, and more importantly without a teleprompter. The best the left (and some on the right) can do is hurl insults and call him names. I sure would feel better if he’d tone down the rhetoric (or at least class it up some) but you can’t deny his successes.
