(TheFreedomFlag.com)- President Donald Trump just keeps on making history, and the latest is a poll that shows him with a 24% approval rating among black voters during the recent Republican National Convention. It’s several magnitudes higher than what Republican presidential candidates can typically expect during their campaigns, and could potentially swing the election massively in his favor later this year.
The Hill-HarrisX survey of registered African American voters was taken between August 22 and 25, which included the first two nights of the Republican National Convention. It means that if the respondents were watching, they certainly liked what they saw. The poll found that around one in four black voters approve of the job President Trump is doing.
It would be a disastrous result if that were for the Democrats, but times are changing. Before President Trump, Republican presidential candidates would often struggle to get into the double digits. This is huge!
It’s also an increase of nine points over the last survey performed between August 8 and 11, which saw President Trump with 15% support. One of the biggest things that has changed since then is the magnitude of the Black Lives Matter riots. President Trump’s decisive action pushing governors to accept support from the National Guard has shown black voters he won’t just stand by as their communities are destroyed by radical activists claiming to represent black people.
President Donald Trump is also achieving great results among Hispanic voters, too. His support rose by 2% from the poll performed at the beginning of August, with 32% support. That means more Hispanic voters support President Trump than black voters, despite the Democrats claiming for years that he thinks all Mexicans are rapists and murderers. Which he obviously doesn’t.
These numbers become even more incredible when you look at the tiny 9% support that George W. Bush secured in 2000. He enjoyed an increased 11% support in 2004 which was considered impressive at the time. Mitt Romney, the most recent Republican presidential candidate before President Trump, only got 8% of the black vote in 2012.
The shy Trump vote isn’t even accounted for in these polls, either. Who knows what will happen in November, but the prospects seem to look good. Could President Trump be the first Republican presidential candidate in fifty years to get significant black support?
