NAACP's own poll reveals surge in black support for Trump and they react badly
American Thinker ^ | 08/09/2018 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 08/09/2018 10:05:25 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Dependence on 90% voting support from African-Americans for electoral success is the jugular vein of the Democratic Party.  President Trump's rising support among black voters is correctly seen as an existential threat to the party's – and progressivism's – ability to win national elections.  That's why I thought it was big news last Saturday when Rasmussen proclaimed that black approval of Trump had hit 29%, even though most of the media ignored it for reasons AT readers well understand.

But the surge in black support for President Trump is real – so real that even the far-left NAACP discovered it in a poll, though that poll (perhaps with a differently worded question) put the support at 21%.  Here is a graphic presentation of the result, showing the support for Trump among various ethnicities:

What's a race victimology group to do with this?  Of course, double down on charges that Trump is a racist.  Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner:

The NAACP said in its poll analysis, "Voters across all racial and ethnic groups believe Trump is setting race relations back.  Three quarters of African-Americans, Latinos and Asian-Americans believe Trump is setting race relations back while a small majority of white voters believe so.  Black women (89 percent), in particular, feel disrespected by President Trump."

If calling Trump a racist hasn't stemmed the flow of black support his way, there is no reason to believe that shouting it more will start working.  It's almost as if the groups that purport to represent the interests of African-Americans are really more worried about their own careers.

Nobody has EVER set race relations in this country back farther than the Kenyan Usurper.

I doubt if the blacks in Michigan are calling Trump a racist.

It isn’t just the black numbers, latino and asian ought to scare the bejeebers out of them too.

Trump only needs to pick up 5% in those groups from where we are to put the Dems out of reach.

I would suggest this....if you did the trend line from November 2016 to now....there is a trend. I would suggest there’s a one-point per month trend going on. So you might be there in November 2020....watching the news media freak out because 40-percent of the black community is voting Trump.

Same type trend for Latinos.

The racist organization is deathly afraid of losing the millions that it rakes in by falsely blaming Whitey for all the problems in the world.

Imagine a world without race hucksters like jesse jackson, al sharpton, barack obama.

One liberal dogma is that people would rather get a handout for doing nothing rather than a paid job for doing something.

Native Americans, in particular (I know quite a few and share bloodlines with some), are, as a general rule, only lazy when they allow themselves to be conquered with alcohol or drug problems. That may account for the 43% approval rating, second highest to whites.

It is high time that everyone realize that the ages of jim crow south and northern cronyism are over. Everyone has equal opportunity and has had for nigh onto 40 years. The race baiting left has beaten this dead horse to the point where people of good will everywhere, in all walks, from all racial backgrounds, are waking up to the fact that your lives have everything to do with your decisions and effort and little to nothing to do with the government or special considerations or anything else a social engineer can dream up.

If the idiots that find time to demonstrate day after day would use that time to better their personal lot in life they would be successful and satisfied. They would not feel the urge to force some foul, failure of a system on those of us that have done the heavy lifting all our lives.

I paid my first Soc. Sec. when I was 14 yrs old . I am close to 60 and have paid every year since. I am not rich but I am happy. I don’t owe nobody and nobody owes me. If you add an “n’ to the word it will read , I don’t own nobody and nobody owns me. Both are accurate.

The NAACP racialists can always be counted on to reflexively act out the incredibly tired “Black outrage” game. They do it every time. Whatever they can do to hark back to the sometimes thinly veiled, sometimes overt, and always cliched anti-White act they worked so well during the 0bama admin they will do. If they were as good and righteous as they claim they would obsolete themselves. They’ll never give up the fundraising locus they are. And they probably raise 5x the money from Whites as they do from Blacks. They ain’t giving that up.

Very low turnout among Republicans + huge turnout among Dems.
