### More Evidence the Trump Bump Among Black Voters Is Real

More Evidence the Trump Bump Among Black Voters Is Real
Trump’s Summer Support Among Blacks Nearly Doubled This Year.

Support for President Donald Trump among African American voters nearly doubled from August 2017 to August 2018. The percentage of black voters who approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing as president was 15% in the Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll on August 2, 2017.

As of August 2, 2018, the percentage of black voters who approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing as president has risen to 29%.

I would never have seen this coming...did anyone else here expect it?

### Re: More Evidence the Trump Bump Among Black Voters Is Real

You know, black folks are really not as stupid as the democrats make them out to be. I think that there has been a gradual ... "awakening" for want of a better term. Look at that Rahm fucker in Chi. He withheld damning videos about a police shooting till after the last election because, you know, black folks will forget the manipulation cuz they are sorta slow like. Do you really think that no one noticed?

Then there is the direction of the party ... is it really a "direction" or opportunism by the leadership ... same thing probably. So what are the burning issues? Fuckers who are here illegally. Get 'em into school, get 'em lawyers. Poor boopsies, like everything for citizens is just perfect in this best of all possible worlds. And then we have other probs, big ones, like letting guys into chick bathrooms. Oh, the vapors.

Meanwhile
The black unemployment rate has never been closer to the white unemployment rate

And whose watch?

Who didn't see it coming? Anyone who is a racist, that's who.

Then there is stuff like the NYT thing wherein lefties bend over backward to create new definitions of english words in order to justify the essential intellectual bankruptcy of their position.

Now, does anyone think for a microsecond that the black community cannot see racism? I mean, really? And do you not think that when the snowflakes start making excuses they are not reminded of their own history, nigh up until the present day?

And what do you think they are going to think? Pretty obvious, unless you are a racist who takes them completely for granted.

The interesting bit is that the alleged black Trump bump only has to be a few percentage points to make a difference in a close one.

I suspect that who goes to which restroom is not high on the list of major concerns for most of black America.

I do not consider myself racist, and the almost doubling of Trumps numbers in that demographic was a surprise to me.

I guess we both have a general distrust of LSM polls.

However, if my memory is correct, Rasmussen was a company that actually was close to reality in the run up to the 2016 election.

Yeah, I agree with most of what he says. Especially that blacks should reconsider their blind allegiance to the Democrats. But Guillory apparently has had a little trouble making up his mind on these things himself. Wiki says he was a Republican until 2007, then a Democrat, then back to Republican again in 2013 when he made that video. Wiki also says he's been married and divorced four times. I wonder if it's to the same two women?

Nor most people aside from people on the extreme lest and that is precisely my point.

### Re: More Evidence the Trump Bump Among Black Voters Is Real

Here is my skeptical take on all this:

There have been black "conservatives" of one kind or another all along, they just weren't numerous nor got much publicity.

Is there a bump in anything other than publicity going on here?

And while the flip flopping Senator was crying crocodile tears over all Teh Childrenz in jail, he conveniently forgot to mention LBJ.

It doesn't persuade me much--IIRC Rasmussen typically reports conservatives higher in the polls than other polling organizations. For example, in 2012 they put Romney as being ahead. So when a Republican actually wins it's going to make them seem better, but it could actually be stopped clock syndrome.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Oh and note 2 mass shootings on this weekends list that somehow don't get the usual suspects in a tizzy. They only count when white people are the perps or victims.
