Black voter support for Trump continues to soar, new survey finds


President Trump was elected with just 8 percent of the Black vote in 2016. If Trump gets just 15 percent of the Black on Tuesday he gets re-elected. It’s that’s simple.

Black voter support for Trump soars to 31%, new survey finds

By Washington Times, October 29, 2020

President Trump has sought to win over Black voters during the 2020 campaign, and a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday shows that his strategy may be working.

The daily tracking poll found 31% of likely Black voters would vote for Mr. Trump if the election were held today, ticking up steadily from 27% on Monday and 30% on Tuesday and Wednesday.

If that support pans out on Election Day, it would represent a huge improvement for Mr. Trump, who won just 8% of the Black vote in 2016, while Democrat Hillary Clinton took 88%.

The 31% figure drew plenty of skepticism. Several commentators on Twitter called the percentage unrealistic or “crazy,” while one quipped, “The only way that figure is realistic is if they polled six black people, and two of them were Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson.”

According a Sept. 8 report in FiveThirtyEight, polling suggests that “about 10 percent of black voters both nationally and in key swing states with large black electorates are supporting Trump.”

Rasmussen’s other daily surveys posted Thursday found that 52% of voters approve of Mr. Trump’s job performance, and that former Vice President Joseph R. Biden leads the president by a whisker at 48% to 47%.

The pollster reported that Mr. Trump led Democrat Hillary Clinton on the Thursday before the 2016 election by 45% to 42%.

Mr. Trump last month unveiled his “Platinum Plan” for the Black community, pledging to create three million jobs for Black workers and helped create 500,000 Black-owned businesses.

He has also accused Democrats, including Mr. Biden, of taking for granted Black voters — a traditionally reliable Democratic voting bloc — while Democrats have accused Mr. Trump of being racist, which he denies.
