GOP nominee Donald Trump might be cracking into one of Hillary Clinton’s once trusted demographics.
Experts on the gay community and gay Republicans say Trump could land an unprecedented amount of votes with gay Americans in the general election, according to the Washington Examiner.
“My prediction is that Donald Trump will win this election,” said Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo. And, referencing a prediction by liberal movie director Michael Moore, he added, “Trump is going to win in a landslide.”
Citing a high of 31 percent for the Republican gay vote in a recent election, Angelo told an Equality Forum event here that the number could go higher for Trump. “I think there’s an opportunity, especially given the explicit outreach Donald Trump has made to the LGBTQ community,” he said.
During the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC), Trump made a ground-breaking and historic plea to gay Americans, telling them that he would protect them from the radical ideology of Islam and terrorism.
The Log Cabin Republicans say they have not yet endorsed Trump, primarily because they are waiting to meet with the presidential candidate ahead of the election.
