A survey revealed that although Donald Trump is constantly being accused of being racist by the media, his approval rating has continued to rise among Latinos and African Americans, the Western Journal reported.
The conservative media explained that, according to polls, his general approval is not only in very good health but he has even reached a historic record among African Americans, while the media insists on calling the president “a bigot, a wildly unpopular figure who is one step away from being tossed out of the White House.”
A large number of accusations were also made by Democratic politicians, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who openly declare “that the president is a white supremacist.”
However, recent results from pollster Zogby Analytics indicate that despite all the negative accusations and comments, President Donald Trump’s job approval has risen among minorities.
It should be noted that the poll was conducted after the mass shooting in El Paso, when President Trump suffered the most unfavorable media coverage he has suffered to date.
At that time, the mass media and several public figures intensified their narrative by rushing to connect the president to the tragedy, reportedly carried out by a racist and lone gunman who deliberately shot Latinos at a Texas Walmart.
Since then, a number of headlines have appeared, such as the one published by MSNBC: “Asked if Trump shares any blame for the El Paso shooting, Beto O’Rourke [former Democratic congressman] says ‘yes. He is a racist and he stokes racism in this country.”
Despite the media campaign, the poll—conducted a week after the tragic event—reflected that 49% of Latino voters support the president.
The poll also showed the approval of more than a quarter of African Americans for the second consecutive time, more than any other Republican leader ever obtained.
On the other hand, Thomas Lifson, editor and analyst at the American Thinker newspaper, suggested that the decreasing effect of the racist narrative used by the media to discredit President Trump would guarantee his victory in the 2020 elections.
“If this figure reported in Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll Friday is anywhere close to accurate, Democrats are closing in on a crisis,” Lifson said, noting that “given the booming economy, many African Americans are experiencing opportunities for employment the likes of which were completely unavailable during the eight years of America’s First Black President.”
“The Democrats heavily depend on 90-plus-percent turnout and 90-plus-percent support for Democrats among African Americans. If that level of support falls to 71%, the game is more or less over,” he concluded.
Friday’s Rasmussen Report poll, referred to by Lifson, shows that “48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.”
“President Trump’s job approval has continued to rise the last few months,” Zogby, reported. “Overall, a slim majority (51%—27% strongly and 24% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump’s job as president.”
