President Trump barely won some key battleground states in 2016 when he was running against the inherently corrupt Hillary Clinton.
This, despite the fact that his support from black voters was only in the high single-digit percentage range.
But thanks to a summer of BLM-inspired riots that have caused untold amounts of damage, resulted in loss of life, and show no signs of abating — all of which have been embraced by Democrats and their propagandists in the mainstream media — the president’s support among black voters is rising.
The Washington Examiner reports that the amount of black voter support Trump is pulling from Biden is more than enough to ensure him victory in the fall (and hopefully enough Republican support to win back the House and keep the Senate):
President Trump's support from likely black voters is nearly twice what campaign officials believe is needed to win reelection and 15 points under the level Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden needs, according to a new survey.
The latest John Zogby Strategies/EMI Research Solutions poll, which was taken after last week's Republican National Convention that featured several minority speakers, put Trump's support from black voters at 20%. For Biden, it is at 75%.
For Trump, that is 12 points more than he received in 2016 and 9 points more than campaign officials believe he needs to keep the White House. One senior official recently told Secrets, 'If it's at 11%, then we win.'
The polling analysis suggested that the rioting in cities and Trump's law and order stance could be driving more black voters into his camp and robbing Biden of votes from the Democratic Party's most loyal base.
Interestingly, Zogby has Trump down to by nationally by 6 points but that seems as implausible as all of the polling up to this point showing Trump down to a man who often has no idea where he is, who he’s with, or what he’s talking about.
The analysis notes, 'Biden should be pleased with his support among Democrats, women, and Hispanics but a lead of 75%-20% among blacks can spell real trouble. A Democrat needs 90%+ and a high turnout among blacks. Could it be that Trump's law and order message is hitting home among blacks who are worried about demonstrations getting out of control? Biden holds 52%-35% among 18-29-year-olds but Barack Obama won with 66% in 2008 and 61% in 2012 among this young cohort.'
It’s because Obama was so cool (eye-roll).
This is good news — again — for the president, who has made it a point to try and earn the black vote by doing things to directly improve the lives of black people. Things that Obama didn’t even do (like criminal justice reform).
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
