New Mexicans SUPER Excited About Pence’s Visit on August 16th…NOT.

See how New Mexicans reacted when KOB asked about their thoughts on Trump’s VP running mate Mike Pence’s upcoming visit. Looks like folks in the Land of Enchantment aren’t exactly fired up for a presidential ticket that denigrates Gold Star families, whose economic policies would cost our economy 3.4 million jobs according to experts, calls Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “drug dealers,” launches a series of racially tinged attacks on federal judge Gonzalo Curiel, saying he could not do his job because of his Mexican heritage, and wants to deport undocumented immigrants.

 

“I wouldn’t pay to go to anything with Trump,” said Kacie Pettit, a registered independent voter. “I don’t even know who Mike Pence is?”

“Don’t know,” Anthony Pettit said. “Don’t really care quite honestly.”

….

“I’m not very happy with Trump to begin with,” said Kevin Wright, a registered Republican. “I wish we had somebody else. They have plenty of supporters. They don’t need to be getting $5,000 out of us.”

Republican VP nominee to attend NM fundraiser

First it was Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. Now Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will be coming to New Mexico.

But how much are you willing to pay to see him?

KOB got a copy on details of his fundraiser. It’s about $2,700 just to go and $5,000 if you want to be a VIP.

“I wouldn’t pay to go to anything with Trump,” said Kacie Pettit, a registered independent voter. “I don’t even know who Mike Pence is?”

The invitations are out, somewhere in Albuquerque on Aug. 16.

“Don’t know,” Anthony Pettit said. “Don’t really care quite honestly.”

This probably isn’t the reaction the Trump-Pence ticket is looking for. Even the Republicans who talked to KOB aren’t ready to spend thousands of dollars to see a running mate.

“I’m not very happy with Trump to begin with,” said Kevin Wright, a registered Republican. “I wish we had somebody else. They have plenty of supporters. They don’t need to be getting $5,000 out of us.”

In June, Trump’s campaign raised about $51 million, a lot less than the $70 million Hillary’s campaign raised.

But Trump is catching up. In July, Trump raised $80 million, and Hillary raised $90 million.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if in August, Hillary has a bigger month,” said Matthew Singleton, a registered Democrat. “Bernie’s really pushing for his supporters to go her way.”

If Trump wins, Pence would be vice president, which has independents like Vincent Encinias predicting there could be a good turnout.

“Just in case you know something were to happen to Trump, that guy would be president,” he said. “Considering Trump’s not the most popular, it’s possible that somebody might do something to him.”

So far, the Hillary Clinton campaign has not announced plans for the Democratic candidate, or her running mate Tim Kaine to visit New Mexico. Clinton was the only actively campaigning presidential candidate to skip the state before the June Primary.
