That's going a bit far. The American public has a short malleable memory. If Trump got the nomination, spin doctors could make him electable.

Europeans are far more racist to their non-whites than Americans.. it's not even close.

"Europeans" are hardly a homogenous group. Brits certainly are not.

not really when it comes to racism to non-whites. And Brits are not more racist to non-whites than Americans? What planet do you come from?? They are even racist to white poles and other non-British whites.

Not so sure that this is a major motivating factor with support for Trump in these primaries. As Alan200+ said, they all know he's unelectable to office, so it seems that more of a naff-you to the party. Its a similar sentiment that brought in Corbyn. Likely Republican primary voters are just getting tired of the endless hollow, manufactured and evasive political language.

Look any serious scholar will tell you Europeans are far more to racist to non-whites than Americans. It's not worthy of a debate.

Trump is leading in polls because the other dozen or so people in the polls are all identical and therefore split the vote. Trump is a right wing demagogue promoting himself. The voters are frustrated because they hate billionaire puppets like Bush,Rubio and so on and almost anyone can lead the polls against those sellouts. That's why Hillary will win easily..

Trump is not right wing, he has no coherent positions to suggest that he has any political ideology other than pandering to xenophobia.

Of course he is right wing.. Do you know what right vs left even means?? And yes he is pandering to xenaphobia but voters still considers him the lesser of two evils against the others frauds like Bush, Rubio and so on.

Oh come on. The yanks are completely obsessed by race, much more so than Brits. You just have to look at their news and other media output to see this.

Eastern europe is totally hardcore racist though - I'll give you that.
