Presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump finally found his ‘African American over here.’ According to a new poll, the acidic billionaire only receives one percent support from black voters.
In contrast, the Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday found Trump’s democratic rival Hillary Clinton taking 91 percent support among that coveted group of voters.
The Hill reports:
Clinton’s advantage there helped her edge Trump overall in the poll, 42 percent to 40 percent.
Democrats routinely win landslide majorities among black voters, but Trump is running behind the previous two GOP presidential nominees with black voters.
Trump isn’t even doing as well as Mitt Romney did in 2012, according to exit polls which showed the then-candidate receiving 6 percent support among black voters at that time. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) had 4 percent in 2008.
Trump leads Clinton, 47 percent to 34 percent, among white voters in the poll, while Clinton leads, 50 to 33 percent, among Hispanics.
The Quinnipiac survey of 1,610 registered voters was conducted between June 21 and June 27 and has a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.
This could be why fake accounts are created on Twitter in which the social media users feign to be African-American in order to garner support for the GOP nominee from minorities.
It could also be why Trump retweeted an image of a black family touting their alleged support for his campaign when in fact, that too, was false. While considering the margin of error in the new poll, it could also be likely that Justice Thomas and Allen West were polled and that would explain the reason the Republican candidate has any black support at all.
The Quinnipiac poll reports:
“The 2016 election has increased the level of hatred and prejudice in the U.S.,” 61 percent of American voters say. Another 34 percent say it has had no impact. Of that 61 percent, 67 percent blame the Trump campaign and 16 percent blame the Clinton campaign.
“It would be difficult to imagine a less flattering from-the-gut reaction to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Even with a less than flattering view of Clinton, she still leads Trump.
Trump will not be a good president, American voters say 58 – 35 percent.
Clinton will not be a good president, voters say 53 – 43 percent.
Maybe being a little bit more ‘politically correct’ would have helped Trump. Everyone saw this coming except for Trump and his supporters. 😂
