While Donald Trump may operate under the delusion that everyone loves him, the latest polling data for African-American voters in the United States definitely tells a much different story.
FiveThirtyEight.com reports that Trump is now polling worse among black voters than virtually every single Republican presidential nominee since 1948 in polls conducted between the party conventions and Election Day.
How bad are Trump’s numbers among black Americans? This bad: He is in fourth place among African-Americans, polling behind Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Here’s the breakdown and average from four polls:
Clinton: 86 percent; Johnson: 4 percent; Stein: 5 percent; Trump: 2 percent
It should be noted that even GOP nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney were able to garner about 10 percent of support among African-Americans. Yet Trump is hardly even registering in a composite of four surveys.
This chart shows just how precipitous the fall of support for GOP Presidential candidates has been over the past few election cycles:
Taken into consideration with the horrific support Trump receives from Hispanics and women in poll after poll, you can clearly see that he has almost no chance of being elected in November. The demographic shift in the United States is against him, and he seems to alienate even more voters with each passing day.
What will happen in November? There are far too many variables remaining–debate performance, potential scandals, voter apathy–to call the election in August. However, barring any major surprises over the next 90 days, Donald Trump would appear to be electoral toast. He could well lose by 250+ electoral votes, and he could cost the GOP the Senate and potentially even the House of Representatives.
