The growing support of African Americans for the re-election of President Donald Trump could be decisive for him to continue leading the country for four more years from the White House.
According to a Newsmax/John Zogby Strategies poll, 14 percent of African American voters would elect President Trump, which is a 55 percent increase compared to the 9 percent of votes he received from them in 2016, when he won, according to Newsmax on Sept. 8.
Obviously, the increase for President Trump also means a decrease in African American support for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his party, which historically enjoyed this support.
There has been a decline in African American backing for the Democrats over the past 12 years. In 2008, Barack Obama had 96 percent of black voters’ support, but this dropped to 93 percent in 2012, and by 2016 Hillary Clinton had 89 percent, which was not enough to win the presidency.
In 2016, President Trump won the election with 9 percent of African American backing, and now with 14 percent of support, his outlook is more optimistic, considering that 96 percent of his Republican base remains strong.
“The numbers of likely black voters are nowhere near where they should be as they fall well below 90%,” according to the new Main St./K St. IntelligenSEER report.
“This alone could potentially cost Biden the election,” IntelligenSEER added. It also reported, “Essentially the monopoly the Democratic Party’s monopoly once had on the black vote appears to be on the decline.”
Klacik, addressed her message to black voters, reminding them no to vote for Democrats.
“I’m running for Congress because I really care about the lives of black people,” she said in one of her tweets. She added, “All Black lives matter, our communities matter, Baltimore matters, and Black people don’t have to vote for the Democrats.”
Democrats don’t want you to see this.
They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat run cities.
