How would Democrats feel if someone started buying up REO properties, and started convincing neighbors to vote for Donald Trump?

A lot of Republicans and members of the government like to avoid what they consider "bad areas." What if someone started buying up property in blighted areas, and started explaining to his neighbors that Trump's economy is much better than LBJ and Carter's economy; that there are a lot of job opportunities and relying on assistance from the government is only keeping them down.

Is all the downtrodden need is someone who reaches out to them? Someone who shows up in person? Someone who is their neighbor? Someone who lives in the same condition as those he rents to? Is that what it would take to convince real America to vote for Trump?

    Trump's economy is built on debt. So was Obama's economy, but Obama created debt to get us out of the recession, just as Reagan did. Trump is simply building up the debt, which basically means shifting money from the taxpayer to wealthy investors and creating big problems down the road when we have another recession. By the way, the economy was better under LBJ, under Clinton, and what we're experiencing under Trump is simply trends that started under Obama. Perhaps someone should buy up some property near you to convince you that you are misinformed by your sources of information.

      There were more violent crimes under LBJ. Inflation was higher. It was under LBJ that neighborhoods became blighted in the first place. Everyone was crammed into the projects. Meanwhile, sturdier brick homes went vacant. LBJ was good for the Soviet Union, not the U.S. Worst president ever.

    Reaching out by telling them fables is not the kind of outreach that people need... People, esp the "downtrodden" in blighted areas, are a lot more likely to believe what they actually experience, and unless you can also SHOW people, not just talk... good luck.

    Talk is cheap, but unless it's only a shoulder and advice someone is in need of, it's not enough.

    If someone wanted to buy up blighted property then they'd have a far better impact on a community if they turned those spaces into business and actually provided some of the jobs you'd be claiming exist and hired locals who needed them.

    Would be far better than just trying to be a jacka** attempting to trick and manipulate people for votes, right? Why should that behavior ever be trusted? It's the kind of thing Trump would do and condone, so it is any wonder people hate him?

    There are micro-financiers and rooftop gardeners who are making a vast difference.

      You're telling me there are neighborhoods full of people on government assistance who vote for Republicans?

    There is no profit in urban properties in blighted and economically challenged areas, No reasonable white person would live there.
