Trump Less Popular Among Black Voters Than The Bubonic Plague, According To New Poll

New Data Suggests Trump Is Less Popular Among Black Voters Than The Plague Which Devastated Europe In The Middle Ages

According to a poll from Public Police Polling that was previewed on the Rachel Maddow Show last night, Donald Trump’s ambition may fall into the “delusions of grandeur” category.

Donald Trump has a serious problem. His entire candidacy has been made possible with the support of elements of American society that have present and historical animus towards the Black community. New data from Public Policy Polling indicates that African Americans are fully aware of this reality.

Trump believes that he can get 95 percent of the Black vote by 2020. According to a poll from Public Police Polling that was previewed on the Rachel Maddow Show last night, Donald Trump’s ambition may fall into the “delusions of grandeur” category.

According to the data, Bedbugs, Personal Injury Lawyers, Mosquitoes, SPAM emails and even the Bubonic Plague are more popular among African Americans than Donald Trump. The poll took place August 26-28 and had a margin of error of +/- 3.3. And while PPP has not yet released the official results, the graphic provided by the Rachel Maddow Show suggests that the Bubonic Plague’s performance against Donald Trump is outside the margin of error.

According to the same poll, Trump’s favorable/unfavorable rating among African Americans is 0 percent to 97 percent with 3 percent undecided.  

It may appear to some that Trump is shifting to attract Black voters, to others, Trump’s shift has been both condescending and disingenuous.

Some commentators speculate that Trump’s rhetoric on “helping the Black community” was never designed to reach African Americans; rather, it was an attempt to convince White, women voters that he wasn’t the racist everyone suggested. This is particularly salient when you consider Trump has yet to make an appeal to the Black community in a Black community.

Trump has gained ground among Independents according to new polling data. Whether this can be attributed to his shift to and focus on the Black community, we cannot determine. However, we can be sure–based on the results of the PPP data–his approach certainly did not appeal to the Black community.
