The Trump campaign will “open information centers for black voters in 15 cities in battleground states in hopes of increasing support for the Republican president’s re-election bid among a key Democratic constituency. They will be located in Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin, all states that will be critical in whether Trump wins a second term.”
These information centers will provide black voters with
propaganda statistics on all the bigly things Trump has done for the black community such as: “his record on economic growth, prison reform legislation and his support for historically black colleges.”
Trump faces an uphill battle securing even a small portion of the black vote. A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted between Feb. 19-25 poll found 15% of African Americans said they approved of Trump’s performance in office, while 79% disapproved and 6% were not sure.
The poll also shows black voters heavily support “Democratic candidates in the presidential contest. If Senator Bernie Sanders becomes the nominee, 79% of black registered voters said they would vote for him versus 7% for Trump.
If Joe Biden is nominated, 78% of black registered voters would vote for the former vice president and 7% for Trump, while 69% would vote for former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg versus 7% for Trump.”
