CNN: Trump doing better with Black voters than in 2016
A CNN analysis of polls says that Trump has more Black votes now as a percentage than he did in 2016 when he stunned the pundits in a victory over Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.
“This confirms other studies that show that Biden’s gains since the protests began have been concentrated among White voters,” says CNN’s Harry Enten. “As I noted last month, Biden seems to be doing considerably worse than Clinton among Hispanic voters.”
The CNN survey of polls show that Trump is more popular with Black voters overall than he was in 2016 by about 26 percent.
“Historically,” says Enten, “Trump is doing as well and probably even a touch better than Republicans normally do among Black voters.”
And this time around, Trump has a considerable advantage in having an organization in place to do outreach. Each of the state parties has organized a Black Voices for Trump group that is headed by committed activists who can campaign on things that Trump has actually done in the Black community.
“Whether it be safer policing and safer communities, criminal justice reform, Opportunity Zones, school choice, the largest federal investment into funding HBCUs, or the lowest Black unemployment rate in American history, President Trump’s proven track record speaks for itself,” said Harrison Floyd, executive director of Black Voices for Trump. In 2016, Trump didn’t have the organization to support coalition voters like they do today.
“There was nothing nearly as organized and as structured as we have today, mainly because the president was funding his own campaign at the beginning,” said Katrina Pierson, a Trump Senior Adviser.
Also, younger Black voters are gravitating to Trump in higher numbers. Why?
“Because they’re tired of hearing the same stories about victimhood, racism, and zero answers that the left has been giving for years,” Rob Smith, a prominent Black conservative activist and spokesman for the youth-oriented non-profit Turning Point USA, told Just the News.
Smith predicted a month ago that Floyd’s case wouldn’t affect Trump because it has nothing to do with Trump’s policies despite the media’s insatiable desire to blame everything on Trump.
“Trump doesn’t have anything to do with the Floyd case, and most smart people realize that,” said Smith.
While Biden appears to sometimes be more popular overall than Hillary Clinton was, CNN says that that’s not true amongst Black voters.
“When you dig a little bit deeper, you see that Biden doesn’t seem to be as well liked as Clinton was among Black voters,” says Enten.
Or maybe Black voters just like that Trump doesn’t put up with the malarkey that Biden does.
