Polls Show 34 Percent of Black Likely Voters Approve of Trump Presidency
President Trump’s approval rating among black likely voters has reached 34 percent, according to two separate polls.
An Emerson poll found that Trump has a 34.5 percent approval rating among black likely voters and a Rasmussen poll found that number was 34 percent.
Breitbart reports that the Trump campaign celebrated the latest polls with Campaign Principal Deputy Communications Director Erin Perrine telling the publication, “It might shock Democrats that support for President Trump is rising with Black Americans but it shouldn’t. Blacks are more prosperous than ever because of President Trump with record-low unemployment and rising paychecks.”
The unemployment rate for African Americans is at its lowest rate ever of 5.4 percent, dropping 2.6 percentage points since Trump was elected. For black adult women the rate even lower, at 4.6 percent. The jobless rate for Hispanics is also at a record low of 3.9 percent.
President Trump joined Dan for an exclusive interview earlier this month and sounded confident in rallying the black vote in 2020. The president cited his work on criminal justice reform and black unemployment numbers and said, “I think I’ve done more for the African American vote maybe than any other president in history.”
Earlier this month, the Trump campaign launched its “Black Voices for Trump” coalition which encourages the black American vote for Trump in 2020.
Trump campaign adviser Katrina Pierson told Newsweek, “The Black Voices for Trump coalition will be a national effort to mobilize and empower Black Americans who support President Trump to help get the message of ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept’ into communities across America.”
Black Voices for Trump board members include former Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain, Youtube sensation duo, “Diamond and Silk,” Pastor Darrell Scott, Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli and Republican National Committee member Robin Armstrong.
