Donald Trump’s Support Among Blacks Has Doubled Since 2016, Amid Racism Claims

Two new polls show President Donald Trump’s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants. The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies.

Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

That score averages out to 17 percent, or twice the 8 percent score he was given in the 2016 exit polls.

Davod, when he was still commenting here, and mostly irritating me, Cecil Turner said something that stuck with me: you make campaign appearances to increase your turnout and depress your opponent's. I thought of that when DJT appeared in a black area not far from me that had a minimum chance of voting for him; that he was doing that to illustrate how a Curb Dive vote was a waste of time. That strategy was completely lost on Willard who, other than the pathetic de rigueur GOP minstrel show for the NAACP, never appeared in front of anything but enthusiastic crowds that were already in the tank for him.

sbw

CH, your assessment rings true about Willard.

The greater rot -- and DJT sees it clearly -- is that the in-the-tank sycophant media will run with any ridiculous comment, just as they have with maverick McCain, Egg McMuffin, Flake, Sasse, Durbin, etc. ... all under the banner of “news” ... as if it really were news.

In today’s world, the news the media pawns off as news isn’t really news at all, just their views that readers and viewers never learned to challenge.

I dislike Romney’s holier-than-thou dissembling and pontificating. He tweeted:

The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & “charity for all.”
“attributed”? Three people there said it was not what was said, but that won’t stop Romney from politics as usual.

Nor is Romney interested in what actually has been America’s immigration history.

And let see Romney actually reveal one of his principles. Just one, Mitt. And back it up with reasoning.

Romney may win, but he repeatedly removes any opportunity to trust him. RINO, thy name is Romney.

Romney surprised me when he responded in the debate with the 'binders full of women.' Who talks like that? An executive in an ivory tower. And then he didn't respond to the democratic jeers in a quick, witty, and intelligent way. He appeared flatfooted.

Today is a victory for all Americans — for the security of our middle class, for the health of our seniors, and for economic growth and job creation. The American people spoke out clearly and, thanks to President Obama’s leadership, 160 million Americans will continue to receive their payroll tax cut — nearly $40 per paycheck in the pockets of the average family.

sbw

Yeah, it’s war.

The media, pulling the same race card, is going to regret it.

We had to completely rewrite the Associated Press Durbin rehash they perpetrated overnight.

I emailed AP:

I can’t trust AP to get at the meat of a story. AP wrote:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump is defending himself anew against accusations that he is racist, this time after recent disparaging comments about Haiti and African nations.

"No, No. I'm not a racist," Trump said Sunday, after reporters asked him to respond to those who think he is. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you."

Trump also denied making the statements attributed to him, but avoided the details of what he did or did not say.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked, referring to lawmakers who were meeting with him in the Oval Office on Thursday when Trump is said to have made the comments. "They weren't made."

What we will run:
Headline: Trump draws attention to immigration issues

While the press and the media harp on comments allegedly made by Sen. Dick Durbin, Democrat from Illinois, about the quality of life in some African, Caribbean, or South American countries, President Donald Trump tweets that Democrats don’t want to focus on the issue of how to properly address immigration.

Trump tweeted early this morning, “Statement by me last night in Florida: ‘Honestly, I don’t think the Democrats want to make a deal. They talk about DACA, but they don’t want to help..We are ready, willing and able to make a deal but they don’t want to. They don’t want security at the border, they don’t want ... to stop drugs, they want to take money away from our military which we cannot do.’ My standard is very simple, AMERICA FIRST & MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

How to handle children who arrived in the country illegally need not be completed by the end of the week as Trump has suspended enforcing the issue until Congress can address it, setting a March deadline. Democrats feel the threat to shutdown a portion of government at the end of the week might give them sufficient leverage to force a solution more in line with their proposals.

Others at the private White House meeting have disputed Durbin’s claims.

Durbin called Turmp “racist” for using the term “chain migration” alleging that some may be offended by the homonym “chain”. He recalled the history of slavery where people were brought to the country in chains.

On video Durbin was shown using the same term “chain migration” last week.

Thank you.

I'm a bit skeptical that a CNN reporter would be that quick on his/her feet to come up with it ... it might have been a Durbin staffer had worked out the shithole strategy-such as it is-then fed it to a CNN reporter and then the reporter went to Little Dick Durbin for confirmation and he says something like 'Yeah it went something like that'.

So was the shithole strategy the plan all along or did they come up with it in the cloak room when the rolling camera meeting was ongoing?

cathyf

I missed it -- has Durbin actually claimed that Trump said "shitholes" ? The original Post story only claimed that "someone at the meeting" (Durbin) described what was said to two people (Durbin's aides), and those two people told the Post reporter. The reporter didn't talk to Durbin, so didn't even have the opportunity to ask if that was Trump's word or Durbin's word.

And remember that Durbin is an idiot. (Trust me, I was at a kick-off for Obama's senate campaign where Durbin introduced Barack, Michelle, Sasha & Malia. I sat there thinking that Durbin must have a driver because there's no way he's smart enough to learn how to find his way from his house to the Capitol and back each day.) He wasn't even necessarily lying when he described what Trump said to his aides -- perhaps they just assumed that Durbin was quoting when he was paraphrasing. Perhaps the reporter just assumed it was a quote and didn't ask, and neither aide had even thought about it.

Journalism appears to be just completely dead. They don't even seem to know that there is a difference between transcribing a recording and repeating a 3rd-hand description of what was said. And have forgotten the truth known to every English-speaking 8-yr-old, which is what happens when you ASS-U-ME.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My theory is that the idea was that of Fusion GPS, which I think functions as both a dirt slinging operation and also a blackmailing organization.

A CNN employee under the pay of Fusion simply primed Durbin to say it, perhaps with leverage from information on Durbin.

Remember, someone was worried about that Tuesday on-camera immigration meeting, when President Trump was obviously super-competent and in command.

They knew this second meeting was coming up. So I think the entire thing was planted in advance. I also think Graham was pressured in the same manner.

Sometime in the 1840's my great grandfather immigrated from a shithole to America. Ireland was a shithole at the time. My ex-BIL still lives in a thatched cottage with outdoor plumbing. At least he doesn't keep the sheep in the house during the winter anymore.

People came from shitholes like Italy and the Pale and ended up for a time in another shithole, the Lower East Side.

The discrimination was unbelievable. NINA, no WOP's, no Jews.

We survived and thrived here and became American, usually in one generation. we joined unions and went to college and fought in our country's wars.

Now some f'ing lying politician is trying to derail DACA and bury Trump under racism charges. Let's send him off to Port au Prince or Kingston or Port Moresby (the most dangerous city in the world)and see what he says.

I am not familiar with this but it is interesting. A friend's daughter and husband are undercover missionaries in a Muslim country. They have small children. They have had a time with the babysitter who lets the male child "rule the roost" so to speak.

She says they spoil the male children and they are never told "no"! When the mom returned home asking why the children didn't take a nap - the reply was, "He said he didn't want to." They are given as much candy as they want and other questionable things.

They stated this is part of their "culture" so the mom has had to rearrange her language lessons to limit the time the children are left with the babysitter.

It fits in with the conduct I observed with the adult men dressed in sparkling white robes striding ahead of their poor wives. The women were all covered in black and lugging home the sacks of groceries while the men's arms were empty... totally backward from Western culture.

So far, these chips have been bundled into the general "computer" category, where sales increased by 46% in the third quarter.

My take is that the whole "shithole" thing has very little to do with DACA and everything to do with the Dems being absolutely panicked by Trump gaining support in the black community--and black unemployment at historic low levels under Trump.

The Dems know that they absolutely need 97% of the black vote and high black voter turnout to win outside of their Blue Hells. If Trump shifts even a few percentage points of that they are in deep trouble and they know it.

Trump is going over the heads of the MSM and the race merchants to tell black voters what they already know--that they are being used and lied to by the Democratic machine. He has also convinced pretty much everybody, love him or hate him, that he is not a politics as usual guy and he will shake things up. And he is clearly not a Romney-Bush-McConnell corporate Republican who black voters simply don't trust or believe
have any interest in or reason to ever advance their concerns. He will never move more than a small minority of independent thinkers, but that minority is significant--there are lots of people for whom the idea that your children can get a job and have some economic hope means more than blind loyalty to the politicians who claim to be the good guys.

Also I doubt that DACA is something that the majority or even a substantial minority of the black community cares about--do they really want to promote the immigration--legal or illegal-- of people who are taking jobs and school admissions and resources--even if they are from Haiti or Ghana rather than Bosnia or Honduras or India or Malaysia? I think the Dems know this.

All of the "concerned citizens" who have been writing "outraged" letters to my local paper are the usual white lefty elites from suburbia, academia and the clergy.

Is it okay with you???? The MFM claimed that we were racist for wanting a ban on people from SHIT-HOLES with EBOLA from coming here.
It's a game. SMEAR THE REPUBLICAN-SMEAR THE CONSERVATIVE. It's old.
