There’s a seismic political realignment taking place and Blacks are joining it in large numbers.
Five months ago a Rasmussen poll showed President Trump registering a whopping 34% support among likely black voters.
Shortly afterwards an Emerson University confirmed the earlier poll, finding that 34.5% of blacks in support of President Trump.
A NPR/PBS/Marist poll confirms the results of both earlier polls finding that thirty-three percent of non-white voters aligned with President Trump.
In 2016, President Trump won the presidency with barely 8% support from the black community. Any level of black support in double digits likely spells doom for Democrats in November.
Georgia Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones is one of those Blacks who is woke to the Democrats’ game of promising things they never deliver on.
I’m a Georgia State Representative and lifelong Democrat. But in this election, I’ll be casting my vote for @realdonaldtrump.

“I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me.”
Jones’ insubordination won’t be tolerated… can’t be tolerated. A party that thrives on identity politics can’t have no uppity negroes giving the wrong idea to others…
As a result, and to put an end to any potential insurrection, Democratic Party insiders essentially resorted to a political lynching of Jones.
Yesterday, Jones announced he’s resigning from the House after unseemly backlash from Georgia Democrats:
“Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation. Someone else can occupy that suite. Therefore, I intend not to complete my term effective April 22, 2020.”
I’ve seen more Democrats attack me for my decision to endorse @realDonaldTrump than ask me why.
They’ve used and abused folks in my community for far too long, taking our votes for granted.
Black Americans are waking up. An uprising is near.

“They’ve used and abused folks in my community for far too long, taking our votes for granted. Black Americans are waking up. An uprising is near.”
In an interview, Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution… “President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign.”

In 2016, blue collar workers, once the backbone of the Democratic Party, became the important demographic that pushed Trump to the presidency.
It’s looking like in 2020, blacks will be the next significant demographic to vote for Trump.
