Accepting for the sake of discussion that "Northern Path" thesis of those states being the key states to win, and that those are the demographics that matter most to achieving that goal, does the issue of too familiar non-sexual touch, of presumptuous and even "entitled" touch, of touch that has on occasion been unwelcome and uncomfortable, impact those demographics in a race against Trump so much?

It's a very different question than how it impacts the nomination process.

My take is that this issue per se does not at all.

My concern remains though what it portends for how he will handle how the rest of his baggage comes up. There will be major smear campaigns run and he has history, some of which does not even need to be taken out of context, or put in small frames, to look bad. He currently is very popular among Black voters ... will it remain after those attacks hit? (For example.)
