Poll Context: Former GOP candidate and conservative talk radio host Herman Cain appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” to discuss Trump’s campaign and to an extent, dispel allegations that the GOP front-runner is a “racial arsonist” running a segregated campaign aimed solely at white people.
“When it’s down to one-on-one — let’s assume for the moment, I know we’re not there yet, that it is Trump versus Clinton — if Trump starts to put his platform and his ideas that help everybody at the front of his speech, those are the sound bites that people will begin to hear,” Cain declared.
“The reason that there’s this so-called divide between the perception of black people and women and non-minorities is because that’s all they have been fed in terms of some of the spoon-fed sound bites,” he continued..
“I know Donald Trump. He’s not a racist, he’s not a bigot, and he is not running a segregated campaign,” Cain insisted.
So can Trump win over the black vote?
