President Trump’s approval rating with African-Americans now stands at 21 percent according to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and you can guess it, Democrats are losing their minds, Hot Air reported.
However, if you read the latest polling results, you’d think Trump was the most racist human being to walk the face of the earth. The poll results were released Tuesday, and it appears to be a vehicle to justify NAACP’s talking points.
This is more of the same from the left, who have been pushing this claim of Trump’s apparent “racism” since before the presidential election in 2016.
Interestingly enough the poll unintentionally verifies the fact that President Trump’s favorability with black voters has risen to a record high, even with the constant claims that the president is the poster boy for racism in America.
Hot air reported:
In the NAACP poll, 21 percent of blacks approve of the president, up 3.5 percent over the Reuters poll, and his disapproval is 79 percent.
That is higher than the 14 percent approval among blacks that the latest Pew Research Center poll found.
And that 21 percent is far higher than the 8 percent of the vote Trump received in 2016, or the 6 percent Republican Mitt Romney received in 2012.
Still, Derrick Johnson, NAACP president and CEO, said, “Our analysis shows President Trump’s racism is a major factor in both why and how people will vote in the midterm elections. The poll confirms how Trump’s racism has not only divided the nation and polluted policy, but also serves as a key factor in motivating voters of color to disrupt politics as usual on a national scale.”
The takeaway from all of this is that 21 percent is an astounding number for President Trump at this point in his first term. Racism is charged at many Republican presidents and Trump is no different.
