Racism

If a candidate came out in favor of racism, who would support them? I am not referring to a candidate who certain people interpret as racist by considering the deeper implications of their policies. I mean a candidate who repeatedly and clearly came out supporting racism. Would they win a single electoral vote? If any candidate in this election stood up and said that he supports apartheid or white-only lunch counters or black-only clubs, who would vote for them? Would they be the next president of the United States?

If a candidate came out in favor of killing small children, who would support them? I am not referring to a candidate who certain people interpret as favoring the killing of small children by considering the deeper implications of their policies. I mean a candidate who repeatedly and clearly came out supporting the killing of small children. Would they win a single electoral vote? If any candidate in this election stood up and said that people should not be punished with a child simply because they did that which exists for the creation of children and that a good solution would be to kill the child so as not to punish the parent with the reasonable and obvious outcome of their actions, who would vote for them? Would they be the next president of the United States?
