A pair of recent surveys by reputable pollsters Rasmussen and Emerson shows 34 percent of likely black voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.
The news is particularly stunning, given that 90 percent of African Americans voted for the Democratic candidate in the 2018 election.
A Rasmussen poll released Friday showed black likely voter approval of Trump at 34 percent. An Emerson Poll showed 34.5 percent approval by the same demographic.
“Boom,” wrote black author and Trump supporter Deneen Borelli on Twitter, calling the results “Democrats worst nightmare.”

The Trump campaign celebrated the news.
“It might shock Democrats that support for President Trump is rising with Black Americans but it shouldn’t,” Trump campaign Principal Deputy Communications Director Erin Perrine said to Breitbart News. “Blacks are more prosperous than ever because of President Trump with record-low unemployment and rising paychecks.”
The Trump campaign launched an African American political coalition, “Black Voices for Trump,” earlier this month.
