Donald Trump has been the best president for blacks since Ronald Reagan, at a minimum. Maybe since Lincoln.How many blacks have noticed? Quite a few, according to the Rasmussen survey, although you couldn’t tell it from recent hysteria in the news.

Note, by the way, that this is a likely voter poll. If Trump wins anything like 41% of the black vote in November, he will be re-elected easily.

Rasmussen: Black Voter Approval for Trump Has Surged to Over 40 Percent

By Matt Margolis | PJ Media

Despite the left’s recent efforts to paint Trump as a racist and blame him for police brutality and the riots, Rasmussen Reports says that approval for President Trump amongst likely black voters is now over 40 percent.

Our Daily Presidential Tracking poll today shows Black Likely Voter approval of the job @realDonaldTrumpis now over 40%.


Trump received 8 percent of the African American vote in 2016. In August 2019, black voter approval for Trump stood at 26 percent.

The increase of 14 points from a year ago suggests that Trump’s support from within the black community is increasing, despite the best efforts of the Democrats and the media to paint him as a racist. With the economy starting to recover, that approval is bound to increase.

Another Rasmussen poll found that one out of four black voters agreed with Joe Biden’s statement that a black voter who votes for Trump isn’t really black.
