Interview with Leo Smith: GOP operative who believes Trump can get 20% of black vote
Leo Smith is the minority engagement director for the Georgia GOP. Mr. Smith caught my attention because of an article in which he stated that he believed that Donald Trump could get 20% of the black vote in the general election, triple what Mitt Romney got in 2012.
I wanted to know how he thought that could happen. I reached out to him on Memorial Day weekend, and Mr. Smith got back to me to set up this interview. Listen to Mr. Smith explain how he feels Trump can get 20% of the black vote here: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2016/05/interview-with-leo-smith-gop-operative.html

I find that condescending and would like to know who was in the room when the decision to create this ad campaign was made, because this ad is in my humble opinion is worse than the dumb sh*t that comes out of Carson’s mouth.
