Trump carried the black vote, but the Left pretends otherwise.
Hillary Clinton could not have pandered more to ignorant black Leftists if she put on platform shoes, an Afro wig and a daishiki then sang a Snoop Dogg song to open each of her events.
Clinton did the next best thing, and that’s get Beyonce an Jay-Z to do their street monkey performance to bring out the natives. Didn’t help, but many blacks thanked Clinton for the free concert.
Moreover, after the failure of her white “first black president”, Bill, Hillary Clinton relied on the half-white “first black president,” Barack Obama.
Obama pleaded with blacks to save his legacy.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
And Holy Mother of Mandingo, the incompetent black eunuch told black people they needed to elect the white woman to finish his work. Obama had eight years to accomplish something meaningful, but was so ineffective he asked a white woman to finish the job.
Pathetic. Then people wonder why I refer to him as a “meth tweeker?”
The man decimated black America for the Democrats, but he couldn’t put it back together.
As Pew Research reports,
However, although Trump fared little better among blacks and Hispanics than Romney did four years ago, Hillary Clinton did not run as strongly among these core Democratic groups as Obama did in 2012. Clinton held an 80-point advantage among blacks (88% to 8%) compared with Obama’s 87-point edge four years ago (93% to 6%). In 2008, Obama had a 91-point advantage among blacks.
So we are told that only 8 percent of blacks came out for Trump. Yet Hillary Clinton lost 7 percent of the black vote from 2012 and a full 11 percent from 2004.
Let’s be clear. The suppressed black vote represents at least three things.
First, the black vote drop represents a rejection of Obama’s policies among blacks. The black vote dropped after 4 years, and even more dramatically after 8 years. Blacks openly admitted voting for 4 years of failure under Obama, saying, “He needs more time.” After 8 years, time ended for Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Next, the black vote percentage remained steady, however the lack of black turnout crushed Clinton. The number of blacks who stayed home represented a huge rejection of Hillary Clinton. Truthfully, she never resonated with blacks.
Thus, the suppressed black vote was a de facto vote for Trump, in as much as the suppressed white vote was a vote against Romney. Many blacks have never voted Republican and never will. But they can stay home, and many did. That was their gift to Trump.
The article goes on to discuss the white vote:
Trump won white voters by a margin almost identical to that of Mitt Romney, who lost the popular vote to Barack Obama in 2012. (Trump appears likely to lose the popular vote, which would make him only the fifth elected president to do so and still win office.) White non-Hispanic voters preferred Trump over Clinton by 21 percentage points (58% to 37%), according to the exit poll conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool. Romney won whites by 20 percentage points in 2012 (59% to 39%).
So this coveted white vote performed about the same as it had for Romney. Yet again the writer neglects the bigger issue, and that is though the percentages were the same, the turnout of whites was tremendous. Balanced against the turnout of blacks, Hillary Clinton was doomed.
