"So something astonishing has happened. We appear to have taken over the Republican Party," Advo said. 

"Well, rank and file, but a lot of those boll weevils are still in those cotton balls, and, uh, the Republican Party may be a European-American populated party, but like a ball of cotton, you can have boll weevils in there that are going to rot it out from the inside," Duke said. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that since Bannon took over at Breitbart, "the outlet has undergone a noticeable shift toward embracing ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant ideas."

"You're living in poverty! Your schools are no good! You have no jobs! ... What the hell do you have to lose?" Trump said.

According to The Washington Post, he's currently polling below 2 percent with black voters.
