Default Trump at 36 percent approval among African-Americans, new poll finds

Not good news for libs.

One reason for this is the dramatic drop in the unemployment rate among blacks.

Trump at 36 percent approval among African-Americans, new poll finds

Quote:
Even as cable news networks debate reports of the existence of a recording of President Donald Trump using a racial slur, a new poll from Rasmussen Reports says that the president's approval rating among African-Americans is at 36 percent, nearly double his support at this time last year.

"Today's @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 36%," Rasmussen said in a tweet. "This day last year: 19%."

That is a staggeringly high number for a man who only won 8 percent of the African-American vote in 2016.

It is even more unexpected given the president's rocky history on matters related to race, including his current nasty feud with former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who has alleged Trump said "n word" on the set of the reality-TV show "The Apprentice."

Conservatives celebrated the poll as a sign of trouble for Democrats in upcoming elections.

Charlie Kirk, the founder of the conservative campus group Turning Point USA, cited the poll as evidence that Trump "is breaking the Democrat party as we know it."

"Trumpís Black Approval is at 36%," Kirk tweeted. "If I was a Democrat I would be terrified. And itís only going to get worse for them."

A post on Fox News host Sean Hannity's blog cheered the apparent increase in support, which defies the "non-stop media attacks."

"The stunning data spells disaster for Democrats just months away from the 2018 midterm election, with the partyís base beginning to fracture as the economy roars to life under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress," the post says.

This is from August, but I bet it's the same about now (give or take a few)...

It's def gonna help. Only question is how much will it help.

I think it's gonna help more than peeps think. He's showin' blacks that it's ok to think for yourself and leave the liberal plantation and not be controlled. And the thing is there's a lot of blacks that feel like this and might now feel comfortable comin' out.

One thing for sure: if Trump can get black approval anywhere near 30% it's bad bad bad news for libs.

Kanye might help some "come out" as not being a Democrat lemming, but I ALSO think some of them might "come out" based on the way he's now being treated by Democrats and the media (redundancy alert)...

No, you provide a link. This sounds like the old Democrat propaganda claiming voter ID for everyone is discrimination.

Well you are the one here stating it as fact so it is up to you to provide your evidence to back up your assertion. Otherwise, it is just more left wing noise with no basis in reality.
