    Most of them are capitalizing on their novelty.

    If you are a black conservative your phone is blowing up from the propagandists to use you to disguise truth.
    Know what's ironic here noonereal? You said exactly the same things that was discussed, and debunked, in the video.

    And by the by....8% of black people voted for Trump in 2016. Polls show that approval of Trump among blacks is between 15% and 25% depending on which poll you look at. The only one spouting propaganda here is you.

    She's a vacuous, inane, disgusting little demagogue.
    Like I said, she was just a small part of the video. Her interview was less than 5 minutes. About another 5 minutes showing her speaking. Much of the rest of the video had nothing to do with Ms. Owens.

    I'm following your thinking but disagree in the order of change. It's going to take the GOP changing before the numbers will begin to make a difference to make the dems worry. Let's see how 2020 breaks down after all the voting is anal ized to death. My guess is you are not going to see numbers that will encourage your thinking. If I'm wrong and don't get booted before then, I will post I was wrong.

    Yeah, there are a couple more lines that only furious, old white conservatives like to rant about, but those are the favorites.

    You may not like her, but she is quite influential and there are those that ARE taking her seriously, including black people.

    Yes, it's now the Party of Trump. He owns it. It only took Trump 2 years. The GOP is wrapped in Trumpism. That means a lot of things, most of which I don't like. If you think those things are positive, go with it.

    Are there other changes the GOP made that I'm missing?

    The dems are changing as well. Sanders had an effect on them.
    Should I go with my gut? Should I use a rake?

    Don't get me wrong, the change is not going to be immediate. I don't expect the numbers to reflect that big of a change in 2020. But over time, in the long run, there IS going to be change. Unless something drastic happens social change is always slow.

    Sorry, but anything that includes Ms. Candace "Lying shill for fracking industry" Owens as a legitimate voice for young black conservatives is not worth my time.
