GOP frontrunner winning support from Rev. Farrakhan, 20% of Democrats
JANUARY 11, 2016
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan agreed with Donald Trump’s proposal to vet Muslims entering America and a recent poll revealed 20% of Democrats would vote for Trump, both of which indicate the GOP frontrunner has enough crossover support to easily win the presidency.
During a recent interview with Alex Jones, Rev. Farrakhan pointed out Trump is “wise to vet anyone” from the Middle East – not just Muslims – because of the long-standing hatred for America in the region.
“So when Mr. Trump said we can’t allow these Muslim refugees into America, a lot of people were upset with him, but I know the hatred for America in the Muslim world is building,” the Hon. Minister stated. “So in this way I think Mr. Trump is wise to vet anyone coming from that area into America because the hatred for America is in the streets now.”
And Rev. Farrakhan attributed Trump’s soaring popularity to his status as a political outsider not completely controlled by the establishment.
“…When a politician does not want money from the rich, he’s freer than the others to really do good for the masses of the people, and I think that today we’re in the midst of the darkest hour in American history and so if we don’t make the right move with the right people at the right time, the America that we know we’re not going to see it become great again,” he stated.
It’s interesting to note that Rev. Farrakhan publicly supported then-Senator Barack Obama as president in 2008, but has since distanced himself from Obama after the president helped overthrow Libya president Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
Farrakhan isn’t the only crossover, however; nearly 20% of Democrats said they would defect and vote for Trump, according to a new poll by Washington-based Mercury Analytics.
“Nearly 20% of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14%, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton,” journalist James Warren reported. “When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are ‘100 percent sure’ of switching than the Republicans.”
Mercury’s CEO Ron Howard, a self-identifying Democrat, admitted Hillary Clinton is in trouble.
“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 sound bites to disqualify him in the voters’ minds,” he concluded.
Infowars will air the full, exclusive interview with Farrakhan on Jan. 20.
