Poll: Black Voter Support for Trump at 23% — Nearly Double from 2020; November Will Be ‘opening salvo’ in Black Voters’ Political Shift

Poll: Black Voter Support for Trump at 23% — Nearly Double from 2020:
A CBS News/YouGov poll published this week shows former President Donald Trump is making gains with black voters, with support at 23 percent — nearly double from 2020.
Exit polling in 2020 showed only 12 percent black voter support for Trump (which was still higher than in 2016, at only eight percent).
At the same time Trump has been gaining support among black voters, black voter support for President Joe Biden is down significantly.
Exit polls in 2020 showed 87 percent support for Biden, according to CNN. However, the recent CBS News/YouGov poll only 75 percent support.
Politico Magazine recently interviewed several black men in Milwaukee who are part of a pilot program for an voter advocacy group focused on increasing black male voting participation, and found lackluster support for Biden.
“Sleepy Joe?” barber Rome Simmons said when asked about Biden. “You see the way he shuffles around. Hell, I’d be sleepy, too.” --->READ MORE HERE

Donalds: November will be ‘opening salvo’ in Black voters’ political shift:
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) predicted Sunday that as many as a quarter of Black voters could side with former President Trump this November in what he described as an “opening salvo” of Black voters moving toward Republicans.
Donalds said in a Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures” interview with Maria Bartiromo that if the election were to be held today, Trump would take between 14 percent and 18 percent of the Black vote. He said he believes that proportion will increase between now and Election Day, calling 25 percent “very possible.”
“How you get to 25 percent is, you go through the actual full campaign, get-out-the-vote efforts, direct targeting of media to Black voters, explaining that President Trump’s agenda was better for them than Joe Biden’s, and then going through how he’s going to get America back on track,” Donalds said.
“That’s what Black people are looking for today in the United States, no more of the political dogma,” he continued.
That overperformance among Black voters, Donalds predicted, could have massive ramifications.
“And what it would demonstrate is that you have Black voters who are shifting in their political thought, are shifting in their politics,” he said. “I think this November is going to be the opening salvo, if you will, of seeing that demonstration of movement of Black voters, but a lot of voters in the United States.” --->READ MORE HERE
