During a week of back-and-forth with Democrats calling the President ‘racist,’ Trump’s poll numbers with blacks are UP.
Despite the constant pummeling of President Trump by Democrats calling him ‘racist’ after he called Rep. Elijah Cummings’ congressional district in Baltimore a “rat and rodent infested mess” and “the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States,” President Trump’s polling among black Americans is actually up.
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

“The president has since pointed out that many of the country’s major cities have similar problems, and nearly all have been run for years by Democrats,” noted the polling firm Rasmussen.
“Democratic leaders responded by calling Trump a racist, but media interviews in Baltimore and elsewhere found black residents asking the same questions the president is asking,” Rasmussen stated.
Like most Republicans, Trump has struggled to attract black voters, but this week’s surveying for the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll has found a bump in black support for the president. Even with the +/-9 margin of error for the smaller sample, it’s a bump that has held up nearly all week. [Emphasis added.]
Interestingly, after Al Sharpton visited Baltimore on Monday, Trump’s approval ratings among blacks rose the sharpest—nine percentage points between Monday and Tuesday.
Perhaps President Trump should ask Sharpton to criticize him in more “disgusting, rat and rodent infested” cities that are run by Democrats. It seems to help the President.
