To hear the mainstream media tell it, every black American hates President Donald Trump because he’s an unrepentant racist. And how do they know he’s a racist? Because former White House official turned contradicting gossip queen Omarosa Manigault-Newman said so.
Except that if you ask pollsters like Rasmussen, which use scientific methods to discern the nation’s pulse, you’ll quickly discover that the “blacks hate Trump” narrative touted by the media is a bold-faced lie — perhaps even the lie of the century.
According to Rasmussen Reports’ latest numbers, over a third of all black Americans approve of the president’s job performance.
This is notable for four reasons. One, it marks the highest black support rating to be earned by any Republican president. Two, the president’s approval rating among blacks has doubled in a year. And three, only 8 percent of black voters chose Trump during the last presidential election.
Today’s @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 36%

And last but not least, these results suggest that Omarosa’s attacks on the president aren’t just backfiring — they’re perhaps driving more black voters into Trump’s arms.
Because of what this poll ultimately means for the beleaguered Democrat Party, of course liberals have already launched an unofficial smear campaign to discredit it.
Just look at the replies Rasmussen has been receiving on Twitter:
Bullshit. Conservative-leaning bullshit. Try again next week after he called a black woman a “dog.”

Trump’s net job approval is double-digit negative in three (reputable) national polls. This Rasmussen poll (known for conservative bias & wide error margins) that Trump retweeted has his Presidential Approval Index at -6. pic.twitter.com/jQUSCtrXr7

This is FAKE news! Trump’s numbers as far as Blacks are concerned should be 10% or less. Blacks certainly don’t like him more today than this day last year. I don’t need a scientific formula to know what’s real.

Rasmussen Reports is a right wing rag that over samples conservatives. Donald Trump has no idea of the issues that face the black community. There is systematic injustice against the black community in the education, judicial and economic systems

That 36% must be the family of that black man with the sign at all the Trump rallies!! What 36% of black voters is this?? This sounds like “fake news”.

If they don’t trust Rasmussen, perhaps they might trust the left-wing National Association for the Advancement of Colored People instead? One of its recent polls found that 21 percent of blacks support the president. While this is considerately lower than Rasmussen’s results — a fact that might be attributable to the NAACP’s left-wing bias — it’s still impressive nonetheless.
These results suggest that race-baiting rhetoric by the likes of Omarosa — who’s been claiming to be in possession of a tape that shows the president uttering the n-word — and other notable figures, particularly in the mainstream media, hasn’t been working.
If anything, maybe their rhetoric has been driving more blacks to #WalkAway from the Democrat Party? Conservative firebrand Candace Owens certainly thinks so. Watch as she hands out participation trophies in celebration of Rasmussen’s latest poll numbers.
Just to be clear, Trump’s approval rating among blacks is 36 percent, not 39 percent. Also, it’s a shame Candace forgot to mention Omarosa, because as the media’s most notorious hound “dog,” she most certainly deserved a prize.
