Maybe this is why Progressives are so adamant about silencing Kanye West. Perhaps this is all about “preference falsification,” or put more simply the old story about “the emperor has no clothes? Or, it’s entirely possible, West was reflecting the change among Blacks that this poll identifies? But either way, it’s not a good sign for Democrats. They cannot afford to have African-Americans thinking . . . well, just thinking for themselves.
Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval.
A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall.
Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29.
Black males were also far more likely to say that they had “mixed feelings” about the president. On the 22nd, 1.5 percent said they had mixed feelings, while 7.1 percent said the same on the 29th.
