Trump could post historic GOP numbers with black voters – report

Former President Donald J. Trump could make history by winning more black votes than any GOP presidential candidate in over 60 years in the 2024 election.

The Republican frontrunner has struck fear into the hearts of Democrats by making big gains with black voters which according to a recent review of swing state polls by Bloomberg, could defect to Trump in sufficient numbers to sink President Joe Biden’s reelection bid.


“Biden’s favorability among Black voters in seven swing states has slipped 7 percentage points since October, to 61% this month, according to a Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll. Trump’s held steady at about 25%,” the outlet reported last month. “National surveys show a more mixed picture, with the share of Black voters saying they would back the former president ranging from 14% to more than 30%.”

The numbers would far exceed the number of black voters that Trump won in 2020, and while the vast majority of blacks remain devoutly loyal to Biden and the Democrats, the uptick in their support for the former president could make a big difference in a close election.

Newsweek reported that Trump could win the greatest percentage of the black vote since Richard Nixon got 32 percent way back in 1960.

The failure of Biden to appeal to black voters who have been particularly hit hard by violent crime and the rampant inflation of “Bidenomics” is a matter of serious concern to the president’s allies like Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) who was instrumental in the derailment of the Bernie Sanders express in the 2020 primaries that gifted the nomination to the geriatric career politician.

On Sunday’s edition of “State of the Union,” anchor Jake Tapper asked Clyburn about his level of concern that black voters won’t turn out for Biden in November.

“Well, I’m not worried. I’m very concerned, and I have sat down with President Biden, I don’t know – I saw those reports. Also, I’ve seen one report indicating that I have sat down with President Biden and I did, with him. And I told him what my concerns are. I have no problem with the Biden administration and what it has done. My problem is we have not been able to break through that MAGA wall in order to get to people exactly what this president has done,” Clyburn told Tapper.

Trump’s cutting into black support shows that the party’s influence with the one demographic that is absolutely critical to their hold on political power is beginning to fray even as Biden and the corrupt media intensify their race-baiting to scare black voters into staying on the Democrat plantation.

On Monday, Biden will dial up the race-baiting demagoguery that has been a hallmark of his presidency when he speaks at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, the site of the horrific racially-motivated mass murder of black worshippers in 2015, a heinous incident that he will seek to blame on Trump.

Clyburn already went there in his chat with Tapper, claiming that Trump was “closely” tied to the massacre despite Barack Obama being president at the time with Biden riding shotgun.

“Regardless of how you think of Donald Trump or his campaign, he is doing the politically smart thing,” former RNC chair Michael Steele who is black is quoted by Bloomberg. “He is seizing on a weakness of the Democratic nominee and the Democratic Party.”

“Black males especially cite prices of basic needs, food for example despite the decline in inflation,” she said. “Some who are small business owners say under Trump it was easier for them to get federal loans, for example. They also cite the backlash against police accountability measures as the George Floyd murder discussion has receded into the sunset,” Pennsylvania State University historian Mary Frances Berry explained to Newsweek.

“Middle age and older Black women seem to take a better than Trump lesser of two evils posture. But nobody I know is excited about reelecting Biden. They like Kamala Harris, but lots of folks will probably stay home unless some unexpected positive change in economic prospects or civil rights occurs,” she said.
