CNN: “Black Americans really, really don't like Donald Trump”
While President Donald Trump is gaining more support among African-American communities, left-wing media tried to steal the administration’s momentum by persuading the public that Trump’s success isn’t “real.”
In a news report by CNN, the popular left-wing media site published an article that read, “A clear message for Trump’s courtship of black voters: Good luck with that!”
The media outlet cited a survey from the Public Religion Research Institute. According to the survey, CNN wrote: “The lowest – lowest! – the President’s unfavorable rating got in the PRRI polling was 72% in August. The highest unfavorable score? How about 83% in December.” CNN added that according to the PRRI survey “More than 3 in 4 African Americans held a “mostly” or “very” unfavorable view of Trump in 2019, with a whopping 56% of those saying they view the President “very” unfavorably.”
CNN continued, “Almost 9 in 10 black Democrats view Trump unfavorably while 3 in 4 black independents say the same. Trump’s unfavorable rating among black Republicans is, perhaps not surprisingly, low – at 36%.”
The article described Trump’s African American support as “dismal” stating that “Now, it’s possible that even with those dismal numbers, Trump might improve on his showing among black voters from 2016 in 2020. That’s because Trump did so incredibly poorly among black voters, winning just 8% of their votes in 2016.”
Finally, the article said that: “If Trump could get to 12% support in the black community, it would match the best showing for a Republican presidential candidate among that group in the last four decades. (George H.W. Bush in 1988 and Bob Dole in 1996 each got 12% of the African-American vote).” The Problem?
In a new survey of registered African-American voters, BlackPAC a political action committee shows that a lot more African-American voters are becoming “disillusioned” by the Democratic party. Citing the BlackPAC study, media outlet Politico wrote, “While black voters are largely supportive of the Democratic Party and align most with its values, more than half feel that the party is not paying close enough attention to the black community. Democrats, they argue, grew too distracted by impeachment to focus on the issues that matter to black voters, putting them out of touch with the key bloc whose support they’ve relied on for decades.”
While the BlackPAC survey stated that 70% of African-American voters will still support whoever wins the 20020 Democratic nominees, one-third of the voters shared that they wanted “someone else” to run. Wall Street Journal also cited that Trump will have more support if he is pitted against former South Bend Indiana Mayor, Pete Buttigieg. In fact, the numbers are expected to double as compared to his 2016 polls.
Indeed, Trump’s campaign to win the African-American communities is starting to pay off. In celebration of Black History Month, black leaders gathered in the Cabinet Room of the White House to pray for Trump on Thursday.
Those who came over include black icons such as, Alveda King, Isaiah Washington, Andre Berto, former NFL player Jack Brewer, Pastor Darrell Scott, Lynette Hardaway, Rochelle Richardson, Black Voices for Trump advisory board members Paris Denard, Deneen Borelli, David Harris Jr., and Candace Owens.
The president also addressed the black leaders in celebration of “Black History” month. “In every field, every generation, and every calling, African-Americans have lifted up our nation to new heights—and, like all citizens, you are entitled to a government that puts your needs, your interests, and your families first,” Trump said.
