Trump’s Approval Rating Climbs Amid Civil Unrest, Black Support Surging

As violent riots and lawlessness continue around the country, newly released polling data shows President Trump’s job approval rating at 52%. This is the highest of his presidency and is made possible by rising support amongst black voters and Democrats.

According to The Washington Examiner:

Buoyed by blacks and independent voters, as well as urban dwellers shocked by the Black Lives Matter protest violence raging in some cities, President Trump’s approval rating has hit a new high, according to a survey heavy with minority voters.

The latest Zogby Analytics poll just shared with Secrets had Trump’s approval at 52%. “The president has recorded his best job approval rating on record,” said pollster Jonathan Zogby.

What’s more, his approval rating among minorities was solid and, in the case of African Americans, shockingly high. Zogby said 36% of blacks approve of the president, as do 37% of Hispanics and 35% of Asians.

Approval among independent voters is also up, to 44%. And “intriguingly,” said Zogby, 23% of Democrats approve of Trump.

Zogby opined that despite some polls showing Biden with a large lead the country is mostly evenly divided. This divide leaves 10-20% of undecides for the candidates to battle for.

President Trump has also focused on issues important to the black community like the economy, jobs, and criminal justice reform. This has led many to question their support for the Democrat party.

This is a staggeringly high number for a man who only won 8 percent of the African American vote in 2016. If I were a Democrat, I would be terrified….
