Black Men’s Support For Trump Has DOUBLED In Swing States

A new poll has revealed that Black Men’s support for Trump has doubled in swing states.

Wall Street Journal published a poll recently that showed Trump’s support from black men in battleground states has doubled the amount he had in the 2020 election.

The poll was conducted in seven swing states: Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Black men were asked who they would be voting for in the 2024 election, and 30% of the men responded they  “definitely or probably” planned to vote for Trump in the upcoming election.

His support from Black women also increased to 11% from the 6% that it was in 2020 election

Here’s what OAN reported:

Support for former President Donald Trump among Black men in swing states has more than doubled.

According to a poll published on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, Trump’s support among Black men has increased in battleground states ahead of the 2024 election by more than double the support he had among the same demographic in the 2020 election.

The recent poll estimated that 30% of Black men in seven swing states, which include -Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – “definitely or probably” plan to vote for Trump in the upcoming election.

This percentage is an 18% increase from his nationwide performance among that demographic in 2020.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that his support among Black women also increased to 11% from the 6% that it was in 2020.

From 8% in 2020 to 18% now, Trump’s support among Black voters with college degrees climbed by ten percentage points, while support among those without saw a rise of 12 percentage points to 21%.

Per Colorado Springs Gazette:

A new poll suggests that 30% of black men in seven swing states will give their support to former President Donald Trump, up from the 12% he received in 2020, come the November election.

The poll, conducted by the Wall Street Journal, surveyed minority group voting trends. The black population has been a key voter bloc for Democrats, but now Trump and third-party candidates are threatening to steer voters away from Biden. There isn’t a comparable poll from 2020, but in that election, Trump won only 12% of male black voters.

Biden still is expected to capture the majority of male black voters, with 57% supporting the Democrat. However, the poll suggests a 30-point drop in black male voter support when compared to the 2020 election results.
