By virtue of his victories in New Hampshire and Nevada, Bernie Sanders seized the mantle of frontrunner in the Democrat Presidential primary.
But there are factions within the Democrat primary that are uneasy with his candidacy.
But no one could believe the twist in the race that had all hell breaking loose when Bernie Sanders found who just betrayed him for Trump.
The core constituency in the Democrat Party is black voters.
In normal years, a Democrat can count on winning about 90 percent of the black vote.
Hillary Clinton only won 88 percent of the black vote and saw the turnout levels for black voters did decline from Barack Obama’s two elections.
Enough black voters peeling away from the Democrat ticket was a key factor in Donald Trump flipping Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania into the Republican column for the first time in a generation.
Now there are warning signs that as Bernie Sanders cements his position as the Democrat Presidential frontrunner, black voters are looking elsewhere.
BlackPAC released a poll that grabbed the attention of the political world when their survey found black voters believed the Democrat Party took them for granted and a growing percentage were open to voting for Donald Trump.
POLITICO reported, “The Democratic Party maintains an overwhelming share of black support, with 70% saying that they will vote for the party’s presidential nominee in November. Yet more than one-third of all black voters surveyed expressed desire for ‘someone else’ to run. Given the option to vote for the Democratic nominee, Trump or a third party candidate, Trump and the third-party candidate each received 12% of support.”
The poll also found that black voters are tuned into the election and have a keen understanding of the candidates’ records.
POLITICO also reported that “’Black voters are extremely anxious right now about what’s happening in the country,’ said Adrianne Shropshire, executive director of BlackPAC, citing the large percentages of survey participants who also expressed dissatisfaction with the economy and direction of the country. ‘It matters not the age category or people that live in rural or suburban communities. People are paying attention at a really high rate.’”
Donald Trump believes he can make a strong pitch to win over black voters.
Black unemployment is at the lowest levels in history and unlike Democrats, President Trump actually delivered on policies – criminal justice reform and opportunity zones – that would benefit black Americans.
South Carolina Senator Tim Scott – who is one of the black Republicans in Congress – told Fox News that President Trump could win 12 percent of the black vote in 2020.
Scott made this prediction before the BlackPAC poll dropped, but Scott correctly read the mood of black voters in America and their growing frustration with the Democrats taking their votes for granted.
If Donald Trump can win 12 percent of the black vote, the President is guaranteed re-election.
Donald Trump winning re-election on the strength of increased support from black voters would be a bitter pill for Democrats like Sanders and their allies in the fake news media that spent three years falsely claiming Donald Trump was a racist, only to see the loyal voting constituency at whom that smear was aimed reject it and put the President back in the White House for four more years.
