Democrats Desperately Downplaying Trump’s Support From Black Voters – Trust Me, They’re Terrified

Top supporters of President Biden are fighting back against reports and polling numbers that show Donald Trump drawing unprecedented interest from black voters.

It’s a desperate attempt to quell panic not seen since a violinist named Wallace Hartley convinced his 8-man band to keep playing orchestral music on the Titanic.


Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), whose endorsement of Biden prior to the South Carolina primary in 2020 is widely seen as a turning point in the former vice president’s campaign by securing black support in that state, is in full denial, saying “Something is amiss with the polling.”

 “Anybody who believes that Donald Trump will get 30 percent of the Black male vote or 12 percent of the Black female vote — I got a bridge down there on Johns Island I’ll sell you.”

Clyburn said in January, however, that he was “very concerned” about the President’s sway with black voters. Now, as polling shows a significant shift in support from the black community, we’re being asked to believe there’s no concern.

Surrogates for the Biden campaign have been fanning out on legacy media stations to deliver the same message that Clyburn has – It’s just “poor polling.”

Despite the outward presentation, rest assured Democrats are in full-blown panic mode.

CNN data reporter Harry Enten recently lowered the curtain on the backstage chaos being felt in the media and the resistance party.

Polling aggregates show support for Biden has dropped 16 points overall among black voters from 2020. Making it worse for the President’s reelection prospects, they’re actually gravitating very strongly to the presumptive GOP nominee.

According to these overall numbers:

  • Trump has tripled his support among Black voters from 7% in 2020 to 21% today.

  • Among Black voters aged 50+, Biden has dropped 9 points.

  • Among Black voters under age 50, Biden nearly halved his support, dropping 43 points.

Enten could hardly contain his inner turmoil over the news, suggesting he was “speechless” after viewing the numbers. He wasn’t. Listen to the hysteria in his voice.

"I keep looking for signs that this is going to go back to normal and I don’t see it yet in the polling," Enten said. "If anything, right now we’re careening towards historic performance for a Republican presidential candidate, the likes of which we have not seen in six decades."

If his hair had been set on fire while speaking, Enten couldn’t have seemed any more terrified.

Actions though, as they say, speak louder than words. And President Biden’s actions as his campaign trots him around to events meant to placate black voters speak volumes.

The octogenarian couldn’t have looked any more awkward at a recent Juneteenth celebration hosted by the White House, as video showed him freezing worse than Ted Williams’ head while the attendees around him danced and sang. Clearly out of place, Biden was forced there in an attempt to create a photo-op that they could then promote to the black community.


Prior to that, the White House had been holding several listening sessions in black communities in almost a dozen states. Last month he delivered a commencement address at Morehouse, a historically Black college for men, and spoke at an NAACP dinner in Detroit.

It is a desperate ploy to lure black voters back to the Democrat candidate. He isn’t doing this unless internal polls are showing exactly what Enten conveyed – panic.

It isn’t just Biden’s actions. Donald Trump has been courting the very black voters abandoning the President, using an unprecedented tactical push in ‘blue’ territories not historically targeted by Republican candidates.

Trump attended a roundtable discussion in Detroit this past weekend where he pointed out that Democrat policies – as they do in every city they control – are decimating the community. He elucidated to the diverse crowd in what one pastor defined as “the hood” that he was a better choice to improve their lives, whether by cracking down on crime or improving the country’s economic outlook.

"He's been the worst president for Black people," Trump said of Biden.

The President is playing defense with the black vote. Trump is playing offense. The scoreboard shows the GOP candidate is mounting a furious rally. And just like a football team in prevent defense mode, Democrats are panicking as the numbers for the opposing team grow higher and higher. All of this has been building for some time. In the 2020 presidential election, 92% of black voters cast their ballots for Biden.


Since then, there have been significant warning signs from average everyday black Americans that his policies are destroying their lives. And they’re offering support to Trump.

Participants in a black barbershop focus group hosted by MSNBC in Charleston, South Carolina mentioned that under President Biden, they felt “broke,” while under Trump, they “had money.”

“There are some people in your orbit either voting for Donald Trump or considering it?” MSNBC correspondent Trymaine Lee asked.

“For sure,” one man replied. “A lot of my friends are obviously my age, so we’re a little younger. We’ve only voted once, you know, for president, and Trump is kinda all we know.”

“They’re like, ‘Well, we’re broke with Biden. We weren’t with Trump.’ And that’s kind of the only thing that I’m hearing over, and over again… ‘With Trump, we had money,'” he explained.

In April, Trump visited a Chick-fil-A in Atlanta, Georgia where he was seen ordering “30 milkshakes and also some chicken” for customers. The video of the visit went viral.

“I don’t care what the media tells you, Mr. Trump,” a young black woman declares in the clip posted to X. “We support you!”


Another man can be heard shouting, “I love you, man. I love you.”

During his visit to Detroit, a local rapper praised the former President and indicated his feelings weren’t based on emotion but rather, on who is a better choice.

“I'm not voting based off of personal feelings, I'm voting based off personal experience,” he said. “I've experienced Trump as President. I've experienced Joe Biden as President — and I like Trump as President more.”

Trump famously tried to draw in black voters in 2020 by asking, “What the hell do you have to lose?”

Turns out, it was a lot. Under the previous administration, the mantra of ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’ was instituted. Biden, by contrast, has delivered a tsunami of rising inflation and crime that has sunk all boats. And like all Americans, black families have paid the cost of inflation, spending more per month under Biden on groceries and gas than they did under Trump. 


They have paid the price of rising violent crime in urban cities. They have suffered in their education with teachers’ unions taking control away from parents in our schools.

It seems clear why the Democrat party is hemorrhaging black voters in record numbers. Don’t let them fool you, they’re terrified right now.
