Trump Ramps Up Black Male Voter Outreach In Crucial Swing States Amid Biden’s Declining Support: REPORT

Former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is ramping up its efforts to target black male voters in crucial swing states, The Washington Post reported.

The former president has been making gains with black voters as President Joe Biden has been hemorrhaging support, polls have shown. Trump’s campaign will likely focus on black men who own guns and frequently attend church in order to grow his base, advisers told the Post, who were granted anonymity to characterize private conversations.

Trump has considered several black men as possible vice presidential picks, such as Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, individuals who have spoken to Trump told the Post. The campaign reportedly may also attempt to convince voters to stay home as opposed to voting for Biden.

Trump appeared at Philadelphia’s “Sneaker Con”in February  to engage with young voters and launch a line of Trump-branded sneakers called the Never Surrender High-Tops. Although he received some hostile reactions, Trump may do more similar events, campaign advisers told the Post.

“Crooked Joe Biden and his campaign are trying to gaslight and distract from the fact that Black Americans are turning their back on their destructive policies,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung told Newsweek in February. “By contrast, President Trump delivered policies for Black Americans like passing criminal justice reform, fully funded HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities], created Opportunity Zones, and lowered Black unemployment.”

MAGA Inc., one of the primary super PACs boosting Trump, unveiled a three-week radio ad initiative focusing on black voters in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan, Axios reported. One ad criticizes Biden for prioritizing “transgender equality,” and asserts that the president does not appreciate black voters.

“This is a first step in a sustained effort to reach every voter, in every corner in America,” MAGA Inc CEO Taylor Budowich told Axios. “[V]oters who traditionally vote Democrat are switching their support to Trump because they want a secure border, growing economy, and safe communities.”

Only 21% of black registered voters believe Biden’s policies “helped [them] personally,” compared to 23% who said the same of Trump’s, a New York Times/Siena College poll found.

Biden secured 87% of the black vote in 2020, compared to Trump’s 12%, according to Edison Research’s exit polls. The president’s lead with this demographic has dropped to 79% as Trump’s has risen to 19% according to a February Quinnipiac poll.

“Nobody thinks we are going to win the Black vote,” a Trump adviser told the Post. “But if you get 10 percent more, the election is over.”

The Democratic Party has bled nearly 20% of its black support over the course of  Biden’s tenure, according to Gallup polling data published in February. Democrats’ 47% lead over Republicans with non-Hispanic Black adults is the lowest the party has had since 1999,

“This is part of Donald Trump’s path to victory; this is why he’s leaning in so hard,” Democratic polling and analysis firm HIT Strategies CEO Terrance Woodbury told the Post. “There’s about 32 percent of the Black electorate that’s just cynical, frustrated, closest to the pain, and that voter doesn’t like Democrats or Republicans. They feel like they’ve been failed by both sides and they’ve been failed by a system. And that’s a part of Donald Trump’s ‘the system is broken’ message that appeals to them.”

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

‘The Republican Party Is Not The Enemy’: Black Voters Tell Lawrence Jones Why They’re Picking Trump

Black voters told Fox News host Lawrence Jones why they are voting for former President Donald Trump in a Saturday “Fox & Friends Weekend” segment.

Jones interviewed several attendees of the Black Conservative Federation’s gala Friday in Columbia, South Carolina who expressed their support for Trump ahead of the state’s GOP primary.

“Black people just need to come and realize the Republican Party is not the enemy,” one woman told Jones. “It’s good on this side of the fence.”

When asked about the main issue driving Black voters to the polls in 2024, the interviewees cited the economy and border crisis under President Joe Biden. One man told Jones “you can’t fool what happens at a grocery store,” referencing the high inflation in the United States. Another woman said “everyone is suffering right now.”

One man noted how the guests attending the gala from Chicago, New York and Texas were “tired of … the migrant issue.” Another prospective voter agreed, stating that Biden’s policies are “putting illegal immigrants ahead of the urban voters.”

“The Black community wants a leader who has the energy to actually go to bat for the issues that they would want to fight for. And we see that in Donald Trump,” one man told the Fox News host. “We don’t necessarily see that from Joe Biden.”

The prospective voter continued to explain that Trump is “visible,” claiming many Black voters believe “he’ll have the energy, he’ll have the charisma to get up and go and fight for the issues.”

President Biden has recently faced concerns about his fitness for office following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Hur’s report. The report concluded criminal charges would likely not be filed against the president because he “would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview, as a sympathetic, well-meaning old elderly man with a poor memory.”

“I think that most Black people are trying to look for something different,” another man told Jones. “A lot of us are waking up, especially Black men.”

RNC BOUNCE! President Trump’s Approval Rises Nine Points Among Black Voters

Amazing. This latest poll has President Trump’s approval rating at 24 percent among Black voters. Trump only needs this number to be at 15 percent to crush Joe Biden and the Left in November. #Blexit.


Donald Trump’s Approval Rises Nine Points Among Black Voters During RNC

By Breitbart, August 30, 2020

President Donald Trump’s approval with black voters rose nine points during the Republican National Convention, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll conducted August 22-25.

The poll asked one question: “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President of the United States?”

The Hill reported:

Twenty-four percent of registered black voters in the Aug. 22-25 survey, which included the first two days of the convention, said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 76 percent said they disapprove.

That is up 9 points from the previous survey conducted Aug. 8-11, where the President received 15 percent support among this group.

The survey found support among Hispanic voters also grew by 2 percentage points, from 30 percent in the last poll to 32 percent in this most recent survey.

The poll conducted an online survey of 2,861 registered voters. Among Republicans, 82 percent approve of Trump while 18 percent disapprove.

A  Zogby poll of 901 “likely voters” published on Wednesday reported Trump’s approval at 52 percent, with a 47 percent disapproval rating. More narrowly, the president had a 36 percent approval rating with blacks, a 37 percent approval rating with Hispanics, and a 35 percent approval rating with Asians.

Ten percent of black and Hispanic voters changed their support from former Vice President Joe Biden to Trump over a two-month period, according to a CNN poll published on August 16.

REPORT: Biden Struggles To Rally Enthusiastic Support From Young Black Voters

Young black voters said they are not excited about the prospect of voting for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to a USA Today report.

Young black voters split from older black voters, with the latter being much more likely to cast their vote for the former vice president, USA Today reported Thursday. An analysis conducted by the Democracy Fund and UCLA Nationscape project found that 91% of black voters ages 65 and up said they were going to vote for Biden, while just 68% of black voters between ages 18 and 29 said the same.

Although polls still show the group favors the former Vice President over President Donald Trump, young black voters say they are hesitant.

Perry Green, a 34-year-old black voter from California who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary, told USA Today that he’s undecided about voting for Biden. He took issue with Biden’s lack of support for the defunding the police, an idea that’s become popular during ongoing protests.

“You got Black youth across the country, calling for defunding the police and thinking differently about law enforcement, and … a couple days later, in the midst of all the protests … (Biden’s) campaign says ‘Let’s spend more money on community policing,’” Green said.

“I think that if I were to see the campaign attempt to engage with more grassroots leaders, that would make me feel a little more encouraged about voting for Biden,” he told USA Today, adding that if he were in a swing state like Ohio, Michigan, or Pennsylvania, he would vote for the former Vice President.

Nationwide protests began May 25 when George Floyd died after a Minneapolis Police officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes. The protests, which have been ongoing for several weeks, center around race relations and police brutality – issues that will play an important role in the upcoming presidential election.

“I need someone who could carry America with a little bit more dignity and I won’t be so ashamed to be like, ‘Oh, that’s my president. Period,’” said Aerial Langston, a 31-year-old from Houston, Texas. She told USA Today that she plans to vote for Biden because the alternative is voting for Trump, but that she wants Biden to be more careful with his words.

The former Vice President has become well-known for his gaffes, some of which have been offensive. He told black radio show host Charlamagne Tha God in May that “if you don’t know whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black!”

Bowdoin College assistant professor of government Chryl Laird said that young black voters likely want to see someone in office who is more progressive. They “are going to have some reservations about Joe Biden,” who is a “very clear image of a status quo politician within the Democratic party,” she said.

“They really don’t see him as the direction that takes the party in a more progressive lean.” However, young Black voters will still likely vote for Biden – they just won’t be happy about it, she said.

Laird also noted that older voters tend to be more practical because they’ve seen change take more time.

GOP Trumped by Conventional Wisdom

Conventional wisdom says don’t waste your time trying to get the Black vote.  Conventional wisdom says don’t hire Black staffers.  Conventional wisdom says don’t be impolitic and non-politically correct. Conventional wisdom says don’t tell the American people what you really believe on a myriad of issues; tell them what you think they want to hear.  Conventional wisdom says Donald Trump will self-destruct.

Whenever and wherever conventional wisdom triumphs, the American people usually lose.  Conventional wisdom says the American people want open borders and amnesty for those in the country illegally.  Conventional wisdom says we need more H-1B visas because America doesn’t have qualified tech workers.

I have said and will continue to tell the Republican establishment that Black are looking for a reason to vote republican; but up to this point no one is even seeking a dialogue with the Black community—until now.

While the Republican establishment continues to wait for Trump’s implosion, he continues to defy conventional wisdom by doing things no other Republican has the guts to do.

Trump has actually hired a high level Black staffer and actually put out a press release to inform the public.  WOW, what a novel idea.  No other Republican presidential campaign had done such.  I can guarantee you that most political insiders can’t name one Black person of any significance who is a staffer for any Republican campaign.

Continuing his defying of conventional wisdom, Trump is the only candidate to actively cultivate relationships with the Black community.  This afternoon Trump is expected to receive the endorsement of 100 Black preachers from across the country.

This is unheard of during a Republican primary.  Why other Republicans continue to ignore the Black vote is a mystery to me.  I can tell you this; far too many Republicans are listening to pollsters like Frank Luntz.

He is paid millions of dollars a year by Republicans to tell them that the Black vote is not worth pursuing.  Conventional wisdom like this will lead to yet another electoral defeat for Republicans come November 2016.

When will the Republican establishment stop wishing for Trump’s demise and begin to seek understanding of his phenomenal rise?

Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski is one of the sharpest political minds on the scene today.  Regardless of what happens to Trump’s candidacy, Lewandowski will be a political force to reckon with for decades to come.

Regrettably, no other Republican campaign has such a forward thinking campaign manager like Lewandowski.

The Republican establishment has absolutely no appreciation for how major it is for Trump to have 100 Black ministers to endorse him.  This is unprecedented during a Republican primary.

Trump will get massive media from this event; but also will create a lot of chatter within Black newspapers.

My readers know I am a huge proponent of Black newspapers.  Republicans have continued to ignore the more than 200 Black newspapers we have in the U.S.  Black newspaper report news that is of unique interest to our community in a way that is relevant; unlike the mainstream newspapers.

Engaging with the Black community also sends a strong signal to White, suburban, middle-class female voters that it is ok to vote for a given candidate because they are not “intolerant.”  These are the voters that will determine who the next U.S. president will be.

None of the Republican campaigns have yet to do any media avails with any Black media.  This is extremely difficult for me to understand; especially when several of the Black newspapers are actually owned by Black Republicans.

Trump’s candidacy has upended everything we thought we knew about presidential campaigns and how to run them.  Trump is saying the Earth is round; while all conventional wisdom mandated that everyone believe that the Earth was flat.

You would be foolish to continue to argue that the Earth is flat when all objective evidence has proven the Earth to be round.

One need only watch the video [below] of the focus group my PAC, Black Americans for a Better Future, hosted two weeks ago.

Too many establishment Republicans still think the political Earth is still flat, despite what the Black electorate is saying.  Who are the Blacks these campaigns consult with? Or do they even have any Blacks advising them?

You have Republican campaigns that don’t even have a picture of a Black person anywhere on their website.  How is it that no one even notices granular details like this?

Oh, I forgot, Republicans are supposed to be colorblind!  Colorblindness is a serious condition that mandates medical attention.

Well, maybe, just maybe if Republicans could get their colorblindness corrected; they could actually see that the Earth is not flat; and that Blacks are open to supporting a Republican candidate, both in the primary and in the general.

But conventional wisdom is the blindness that will prevent them from seeing what is staring them right in the face.
