AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

A Trend in the Right Direction

So I have read comments since the 2016 Presidential election that stated that Donald Trump did well with the Black vote. In light of the #WalkAway campaign — where Blacks and other typical Democrat voters have been making the decision to walk away from the Democrat Party — and Trump Administration policies over the course of the past 3 years that have helped the Black community, many have been predicting that President Trump will have even stronger Black voter support in the 2020 Presidential election than he received in the 2016 Presidential election.

This sparked my interest in looking up the exact numbers for the election results and comparing to past elections. So I did a little Google-fu and Excel-fu and organized the results in the table below.

So looking at the results, those who stated that Donald Trump earned the Black vote in 2016 were correct. While he garnered only 8% of the total Black vote, the total votes were an increase of 25% from the total votes earned by Mitt Romney in 2012.

Another thing that stands out is that the Black vote for the Republican candidate has been steadily increasing since a low of 4% in 2008, when Barack Obama ran for President the first time.

This is significant. It shows that some Black voters have been moving from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party since the middle of the Barack Obama Administration.

I have to believe that is part of the underlying agenda behind the riots that have erupted and the narrative of “racism” being pushed by the Left.

The Left saw the positive influence President Trump Administration policies were having in the Black community and feared that the trend of Black voters to move from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party was going to continue in the November 2020 election.

I just have to hope that enough people in the Black community realize that they are once again being manipulated by the Left to remain under their control.
