We keep hearing from the liberal media that Donald Trump isn’t going to garner any of the black vote. They can’t seem to point to a single racist thing Trump ever said or did against African Americans, but boy are they certain they won’t be voting for Trump. On second thought, isn’t it a bit racist to assume that all blacks think the same way?
If Trump fails to win the black vote, that wouldn’t be unique to him. Mitt Romney got a paltry 5% against Barack Obama in 2012, for instance. Romney was undoubtably at a disadvantage in that he was running against a black President – while Trump is not. Trump is running against a woman who once referred to young black criminals as “super-predators” in 1996 while her husband was pushing a “tough on crime” agenda. Regardless of whether or not you find the comments appropriate, the black community certainly hasn’t.
Hillary Clinton has the lowest support among African-Americans as a Democratic presidential candidate since 1960.
The former Secretary of State only has around 73% of support from blacks, which is alarming for a Democratic candidate; usually a Democrat, win or lose, captures on average 87% of African-American support during a presidential election.
Before Hillary, the lowest since 1960 was Jimmy Carter with 83% during the 1980 election, which he lost to Ronald Reagan.
“Clinton recently spoke before a Black Baptist convention and was only able to fill 20% of the seats placed in the room,” reporter citizen-journalist Kevin Collins. “…The faked polls can say what they want, but Hillary Clinton is in deep trouble with exactly the groups she will need if she expects to win in November.”
In the last ten presidential election cycles, the highest percentage of the black vote garnered by a Republican was 12% in 1996 (when Bob Dole ran against Bill Clinton). Perhaps black voters have a disdain for the Clintons, as Trump is polling at 14.6% of the black vote according to the L.A. Times. Another poll showed Trump gathering nearly 26% of the black vote, which would blow Hillary out of the water.
We’re always hearing about Trump’s alleged race problem, but not Hillary’s. That’s not because she doesn’t have one, it’s because the media doesn’t want you to know about it.
