I hope Mr. Marshal doesn't assume that Trump's anti-Mexican platform will lose the election for him.
His anti-Mexican stance is bipartisan. It appeals across political party lines, across racial lines and across income lines.
Black people believe Mexicans have taken their jobs. White people believe Mexicans have taken their jobs.
Americans, possibly most Americans, regardless of race or party or income level, or even education level, lump Puerto Ricans, Columbians, Guatemalans, all South Americans together and call them Mexicans.
In my experience no amount of reasoning can convince people that Mexicans have not taken jobs from them. There is even the resentment among some that Mexicans have taken selling drugs away from them.
Trump is pounding his anti-Mexican platform because he can win the election with it.
