Watch the mainstream cable news networks, and you’d think President Donald Trump has already lost the 2020 election.
Then again, these are the same “experts” who predicted he would be crushed by Hillary Clinton in 2016!
In reality, Trump’s poll numbers show every liberal’s nightmare coming to life.
His approval is soaring and he’s winning new support among key demographics, putting him on path for easy reelection.
And perhaps, most shocking of all, he’s winning over voters in groups the mainstream claimed would NEVER vote for him!
A new poll by Rasmussen finds Trump has a 36 percent approval rating among black voters.
It’s the only poll with a number that high, so it might be an outlier.
But no matter how you look at it, his support among African-American voters is climbing. Even the Trump haters at CNN, the TV home of “fake news,” were forced to admit it!
“Here’s the thing though,” the network posted after first dismissing the new poll. “It does actually seem that Trump has gained support among African-Americans since the 2016 election.”
CNN then said Trump’s support among black voters may have DOUBLED.
Even an NAACP poll found surprisingly strong support for Trump.
The poll finds 21 percent among black voters and – perhaps even more surprisingly – 35 percent among Latino voters.
“If I was a Democrat I would be terrified,” tweeted Charlie Kirk of the conservative group Turning Point USA. “And it’s only going to get worse for them.”
They should be terrified; Cornell University’s Roper Center notes that no Republican candidate has won more than 12 percent of the black vote since Bob Dole in 1996.
President George W. Bush won 9 percent in 2000 and 11 percent in 2004 and WON the election. Trump himself had 8 percent in 2016 and (of course) won.
In a close election, any increase in those numbers could mean the difference, especially in close states with a large minority population such as Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania, all of which Trump won in 2016.
And in nearly every case, black voters may have provided some or even all of his margin of victory.
If Trump’s support is growing… if it’s rising from the 8 percent he got in the nail-biter 2016 election… if it’s truly at 21 percent or if it’s even at HALF of the 36 percent found in the Rasmussen poll, you can bet the left is sweating bullets.
With numbers like that, there’s almost no chance a Democrat can beat him in 2020!
It’s not just in this demographic that’s encouraging for Trump.
The president’s overall approval numbers are right where they’ve been for nearly every recent two-term president.
At roughly 550 days in, Trump tied with presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, with all three scoring 42 percent approval ratings according to Gallup. President Barack Obama runs a little ahead, but not by much: He was at 45 percent. His numbers would eventually sink, yet he still won reelection.
Could Trump be next? The numbers say YES, HE CAN!
