Trump Surges With Black Voters After Confrontation Over Baltimore

Rasmussen Polling shows that President Trump has surged among Black voters and Democrats should be very very scared.

If these numbers hold up, the Democrats have no chance of winning in 2020 and Trump’s coattails could lead to a takeover in the House and widening of their Senate lead. Democrats count on getting 90 to 93% of the Black vote and Trump currently has a 32% approval rating among blacks and that could mean a landslide in 2020.

The Democrats and their willing accomplices in the press are trying to make the feud over Baltimore into a racial issue, but evidently, the Black voters aren’t buying it as his numbers have surged during that same time.

Despite the Democrat’s best efforts to paint Trump a racist following his remarks on the horrific conditions in Baltimore and other Democrat-run cities, President Trump’s polling numbers spiked with Black voters this week.

Rasmussen reported:

President Trump triggered a media firestorm when he criticized a longtime Democratic congressman’s job performance, saying his Baltimore district is “a rat and rodent infested mess” and “the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.”

The president has since pointed out that many of the country’s major cities have similar problems, and nearly all have been run for years by Democrats. Democratic leaders responded by calling Trump a racist, but media interviews in Baltimore and elsewhere found black residents asking the same questions the president is asking.

Like most Republicans, Trump has struggled to attract black voters, but this week’s surveying for the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll has found a bump in black support for the president. Even with the +/-9 margin of error for the smaller sample, it’s a bump that has held up nearly all week.
