Black Voters Are Shifting Towards Trump At A Rate That Alarms Democrats

The sportswriter, 53, announced amid an entrance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Wednesday – just moments after he sat down with the president for an interview.

“I think we have been carrying on a facade for three-and-a-half years as black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip-hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless black athletes, entertainers, celebrities,” Whitlock stated.

He added that Trump’s “masculinity” and his contempt for political correctness were “things that a lot of black men can relate to”.

Whitlock went on to mention several examples of famous black men showing their support for the President in recent weeks.

He referenced rapper 50 Cent’s recent support of the President, as well as Ice Cube’s confirmation that he will collaborate with the Trump Administration on a program to invest in black communities.

Meanwhile, new polling shows Trump making inroads with the demographic two weeks out from the election.

While black men have traditionally been a solid voting coalition for Democrats, Trump succeeded to secure 14 percent of their votes during the 2016 election. That number was up on the 11 percent Republican Mitt Romney secured back in 2012.

This year, polling data shows that Trump is expected to build on his 2016 number, with some theorists predicting he could earn up to 19 percent of the black male vote.

It was claimed that Trump is polling “historically well” with the demographic.

Trump is gaining distinct ground with younger black voters. According to FiveThirtyEight, 35 percent of black adults under the age of 29 stated that they liked “strong demeanor and defiance of the establishment”.

It comes after 50 Cent on Monday officially supported President Trump, criticizing a tax rate suggested by Democrat nominee Joe Biden.

The 45-year-old tweeted a shot of the tax rates which could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California residents, and 62 percent for people who live in New York City.

The rapper wrote: “WHAT THE F***! (VOTE For TRUMP) I’M OUT. F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.”

He added: “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.”

Last week, Ice Cube upheld his decision to work with Donald Trump on a plan for black Americans, insisting he is “working with whoever is in power” and that he is “not on nobody’s team” during an interview.
