Race relations and ‘position’ of minorities better under Trump than Obama

BY:  Paul Bedard

 

Satisfaction with race relations in the United States has jumped under President Trump, the latest indication that the Republican is making significant inroads with blacks and other minorities in advance of the 2020 presidential election.

 

New details from a Gallup survey on satisfaction said race relations and the “position” of minorities under Trump are far higher than they were under President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.

 

Race relations scored the highest satisfaction advance, 14 points, from 22% at the end of the Obama administration to 36% this month, said Gallup.

 

And, “The position of blacks and other racial minorities in the nation” jumped 9 points, from 37% in January 2017 to 46% now.

The poll bolsters several others that have shown Trump picking up support from blacks and Hispanics 10 months before Election Day.

 

Some notable polls have shown black support at up to 34%, though GOP pollsters suggest that once the Democrats pick a nominee support for Trump will drop back to 12%-14%. But that would be historic for a Republican presidential candidate and could turn the race for Trump, they added.

 

White House officials have credited the rise in support from African Americans and other minorities to the improved economy, historically low unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, and women, prison reform, and urban renewal programs.

 

What’s more, Gallup said that the nation’s average satisfaction rate is at a 15-year high.

Said the survey analysis:

 

“Americans' average satisfaction rating for the 27 issues Gallup has tracked consistently since 2001 is now 47%. This is up three points from a year ago and is the highest since the January 2005 poll.

 

“Today's average satisfaction is roughly on par with the level of the early 2000s. Only in 2002 was the average for this metric substantially higher than it is today. The average 53% recorded that year reflected heightened satisfaction as Americans were in full ‘rally around the flag’ mode shortly after the 9/11 attacks.”

jimc91:   Satisfaction with race relations in the United States has jumped under President Trump

 

 

Yes it certainly has jumped under Trump......comparable to jumping off a cliff. I have to think Paul Bedard was smirking the whole time he wrote this.

Of course he was smirking, he know that the trump base will believe it over actual reality.  Reality is that the KKK and other White supremacist groups have been emboldened under tRump and race motivated crimes committed by white males have increased.
