Last week, Beto O’Rourke was asked by Jake Tapper about whether he considers those who vote for President Donald Trump to be racist, and he essentially implied that he believes they are.

This week, Tapper posed a similar question to South Bend Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who furthered the character judgment on those who vote for the president.

In a campaign to reach 270 electoral votes, what do Democrat candidates think they are going to gain by calling people who vote for President Trump racist?

Democrats running to unseat the president next year should take the rest of the day and read up on what Hillary Clinton calling Trump supporters “deplorables” did for her campaign.
