Skip to comments.Trump Approval Among Blacks Tops 34 Percent in Emerson Poll
Posted on 11/25/2019 9:58:36 AM PST by 11th_VA
Approval of President Donald Trump rose to 34.5 percent among black registered voters in a recent Emerson poll.
The number is notable because only 8 percent of blacks voted for Trump in 2016, according to Cornell Universitys Roper Center.
The poll of 1,092 registered voters was conducted Nov. 1720, partly by automated landline calls and partly online. The same poll taken a month earlier showed approval for Trumps presidency at 17.8 percent among blacks.
The pollster warns that results for subsets of voters have a higher margin of error than the 2.9 percentage points the poll has as a whole. For black voters, the margin is 8.3 percent, according to Spencer Kimball, assistant professor at Emerson College who oversees the polling.
But there doesnt seem to be any issue with the data itself that could explain such a significant increase...

If this is in any way accurate, we’re looking at a landslide of biblical proportions.
Wow, that is borderline unbelievable. No GOP presidential candidate has received those kinds of numbers in 50 years.
Not possible. Black females are never going to give Trump a positive rating.
Rasmussen poll showing same numbers.
Look for the Democrats to start ramping up their labeling of Trump as “racist”. The media will assist them.
They’re dead Jim.
If that holds the Dems are DOA next November.
Look for them to ramp-up the absurd cries of RAAAAACISM between now and then.
“If this is in any way accurate, were looking at a landslide of biblical proportions”.
I agree. The important thing is that they get out and vote. If they approve but don’t vote, it’s stupid.
Many Blacks will vote for Trump and keep it to themselves.
“Not possible. Black females are never going to give Trump a positive rating”.
There are many black women supporting Trump. Candace Owens is a good example. But the numbers are too low.
Does anyone know what Bush 43’s approval was among blacks at this stage?
The 34% is for overall approval. What if they do match-ups between Trump and Mayor Pete (The newest darling of the Left)?
Orange is the new Black
Back in the summer....some poll was released and suggested that around 35-to-40 percent of black males favored Trump over any Democratic candidate. The black female percentage was way down around 10-to-15 percent.
Here’s the thing...if these guys showed in heavily black populated states, it destroys the Democratic strategy ahead (not just 2020). Same type of figures exist for Latinos.
Rasmussen shows Trump underwater at 44/55 today. So he must be tanking with white voters.
Lol !!! Post of the day winner !!!!
17.8 percent among blacks.
For black voters, the margin is 8.3 percent, according to Spencer Kimball, assistant professor at Emerson College who oversees the polling.
That means the Support could be around 9.5% among blacks, which is fairly standard support folks... to 26.1% which would be insane.
I have no doubt Trump is doing lots of great things and that all American’s are benefiting from them, but people really need to check their reigns on some of these poll numbers around black support.. Usually the sampling is so small that the margin of error, much like this one is HUGE, and when you look at it you find the standard support is within the margin of error.
I expect Trump will do better with black americans in 2020 than he did in 2016, but if you think he’s going to pull 20 or 30% support, you really really need to temper yourselves.
