Joe “The Hermit” Biden has emerged from hiding finally. His handlers had hoped he could ride out the election from the comfort of his basement, only occasionally doing Zoom interviews during which he’d let slip his contempt for black and brown people.
They figured wrong. As big cities burned and Democrat leaders backed up the looters and rioters, polls showed that Americans trusted President Donald Trump to keep them safe. When the mainstream media told Joe about this, he immediately changed his tune, making a speech mildly rebuking his Antifa and Black Lives Matters constituents over all that bad violence they were perpetrating.
We’ll see next week when new polls come out if Biden’s speech worked. For now, Trump and Biden are within one point of each other in several national polls. Biden managed to lose a 12-point lead he had over Trump with his silent endorsement of the violence.
While this is exciting news for Trump supporters, it’s not the only bit of good news to come out from the polls this week. In a turn of events that shocked only the mainstream media, Black voters are beginning to leave the Democrat plantation. July Rasmussen polling shows Black voters approve the President’s performance at an all-time high of 36 percent—with 25 percent strongly approving of his performance.
That same poll showed that President Trump is presently winning 19 percent of the black vote. If that lead holds, coupled with the rest of his numbers, it would be a landslide victory for President Trump in November.
Black civil rights attorney Leo Terrell, a lifelong Democrat who recently switched loyalties to President Trump, told Sean Hannity on Fox News, that President Trump will likely get the highest number of black votes of any modern-day Republican. In fact, that 19 percent Black vote could turn out to be as high as 24 percent.
You wouldn’t think that numbers below 40 percent would be good news, but in 2016, President Trump got only 8 percent of the Black vote and still won. So, the higher numbers relate to how President Trump has been able to interrupt the longtime honeymoon relationship between the Democrats and African American voters.
The fact is, past Republicans have basically written off Black voters. Not anymore. President Trump is changing the conversation to connect with black voters. He has worked harder than Democrats to reach black voters, and that is causing concern and panic among Democrat operatives, who figured Black voters would never abandon their party, despite doing nothing for them.
The Trump team has made significant and intelligent investments to chip away black support from Democrats. The President’s reelection campaign spent over $11 million on an ad celebrating the release from prison of Alice Johnson, a black woman who also spoke at the RNC last week. The ad also highlighted the President’s criminal justice reform legislation. The lady’s grateful response at its end tells the story: “I want to thank President Donald John Trump.”
The President’s campaign has also opened field offices in 15 U.S. cities with large African American populations. Conservative donors have also financed a new Black News Channel, which presents a counterfoil to traditional liberal fake news coverage.
Expect the Democrats to pay attention to this alarming news. Black voters are the cornerstone of their coalition and they would be mistaken if they dismissed President Trump’s attempts to peel off some of them. Democrats know they can not win any election without the majority of Black voters.
But the strategy is not to get a majority of those African American support. It is to whittle down the amount of black support for Democrats in crime-ridden and rundown Democrat-run cities to carry the vote in swing states like Michigan and Pennsylvania.
The polls show the Trump campaigns strategy is working. He’s on course to get more of the Black vote than any modern day Republican.
