Democrats Panic as Trump Popularity Increases Among Black Voters

Democrats are sounding the alarm, warning their party of President Trump’s surging popularity amongst black voters in America.

On CBS’s Face the Nation, Democrat political analyst Jamal Simmons, expressed his concern with support for the president from black Americans.

“I’m gonna send this flag up to the Democratic Party — people need to understand this. We talked to Terrance Woodbury, who’s a young African American pollster.

Last Tuesday, Jones reacted to the President’s State of the Union address, claiming it was a wake up call for Democrats regarding the black vote.

“The thing about it is, and we’ve got to wake up, folks, there’s a whole bubble thing that goes on, he said s-hole nations, therefore all black people are going to hate him forever. That ain’t necessarily so. I think what you’re going to see him do, you may not like my rhetoric, but look at my results and my record to black people, if he narrow casts that, it’s going to...
