Democrats and their cohorts in the media have become unhinged at Trump’s outreach to blacks.  For weeks prior to and immediately after Trump’s initial outreach, the media were quick to erroneously report that polls had Trump getting only 1% of black support.  Of course, any thinking person who studies history knows that those supposed polls could not be accurate.  Every Republican president in history has gotten at least 4-6% of the black vote.  How is it possible that Trump was getting only one percent?  Furthermore, if the polls were indeed accurate, why were liberals so upset at Trump’s outreach?

The fact of the matter is that even before Trump made a public outreach to blacks, many blacks had signed on to support him, and liberals knew it.  Several current polls have Trump receiving 15-23% of the black support nationally.  That is the highest black support any Republican presidential candidate has received in over 50 years.  This explains why Hillary Clinton decided to recycle the birther issue (that backfired) and the Congressional Black Caucus’s decision to put on that spectacle of feigning outrage over Trump’s birtherism while coalescing around Hillary Clinton, the mother who actually gave birth to birtherism.  Yet none of the members of the CBC seems to have a problem being the landlord over the inner-city ghettos.
