'We have to shut down white supremacy': O'Rourke

On Sunday, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attacked President Donald Trump for what O'Rourke said was the white supremacy he espoused and he also called on the country to 'shut down white nationalism.'

"We're going to connect the dots for our fellow Americans, we're going to say that the President's racism, his hatred, the white supremacy that he espouses, it does not just offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes who we are," O'Rourke said." Last Friday, O'Rourke unveiled a plan to classify white supremacist violence as an organized crime problem and to create federal domestic terrorism offices, in a bid to combat hate crimes and gun violence in the United States.

Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric and focus on the grievances of white voters helped him win the 2016 election.

But a Reuters analysis of public opinion over the last four years suggests that Trump's brand of white identity politics may be less effective in the 2020 election campaign.

The analysis comes amid widespread criticism of Trump's racially charged comments about four minority women lawmakers and the fallout from a mass shooting of Hispanics in El Paso, Texas, that many Democratic presidential candidates swiftly blamed on the president's rhetoric.

Reuters/Ipsos polling of 4,436 U.S. adults in July showed that people who rejected racial stereotypes were more interested in voting in the 2020 general election than those who expressed stronger levels of anti-black or anti-Hispanic biases.
