Democrats worst nightmare: Polls track that 34% of black ‘likely voters’ approve of Donald Trump

Recent polling shows it may be game over for Democrats as the average number of black registered voters who support President Donald Trump has increased.

A Rasmussen poll released last week showed that 34 percent of black likely voters approve of Trump’s presidency, an increase from last year when it was in the 20s and a finding that lines up with an Emerson poll which showed 34.5 percent approval as well as a drop in support for impeachment.

Black author and Trump supporter Deneen Borelli noted the poll results in a tweet calling it “Democrats worst nightmare” and adding the hashtag #Boom.

Rasmussen explained that their polling of likely voters cost more but better reflected election results. Emerson’s poll numbers were also defended as professor Spencer Kimball noted the “slightly higher” approval ratings with minority voters Trump was experiencing.

“This could be attributed to variance within the subsets … and be an anomaly, or it could be the start of a trend,” Kimball told the Epoch Times. “He might do better with this vote than he did in 2016.”

The numbers could have a significant impact on the 2020 election and Trump’s election campaign which celebrated the poll results.

“It might shock Democrats that support for President Trump is rising with Black Americans but it shouldn’t,” Erin Perrine, Trump campaign Principal Deputy Communications Director, told Breitbart News. “Blacks are more prosperous than ever because of President Trump with record-low unemployment and rising paychecks.”

She also noted how the results would give a boost to the recently launched campaign coalition, “Black Voices for Trump.”

“The Black Voices for Trump coalition will help get the facts and truth out there about the strength of America for Blacks under President Trump,” she said.

Trump’s focus on America, jobs and the economy, as well as record low levels of black unemployment, have resonated with many who feel the Democratic Party’s shift to the left has created a gap where they no longer feel they are being represented.

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren recently struggled to name prominent black Americans who had influenced her politically and others she would add to her cabinet if elected.

President Trump told an Atlanta, Georgia, crowd earlier this month that Democrats have not delivered on their empty promises to the black community.

“For decades, Democrats have taken African American voters totally for granted. They didn’t do anything for you,” Trump told the audience.

“We’ve done more for African Americans in three years than the broken Washington establishment has done in more than 30 years,” he said, telling the crowd that Democrats have “dismissed you, they’ve hurt you and they’ve sabotaged you for far too long.”

Trump promised that 2020 would be “a year of change in black communities all across the country,” asking the crowd to “reach out to your friends, your neighbors, your churches” ahead of the election.
