The battle between former President Trump and a cabal of desperate Democrats trying everything in their power to harm him politically, only to have it backfire, conjures up images of pasty liberals sitting in the dark beside a cauldron of witches brew exclaiming, “Curse… foiled again!”
According to a Washington Post research, Trump has the highest approval ratings among the black and Hispanic communities of any former Republican.
According to the Washington Post, five recent surveys show Trump with a 20 percent popularity rating among black voters and a 42 percent acceptance rating among Hispanic voters.
Such results should have the Democratic National Committee and its media friends in a state of fear.
“Both numbers — and especially that for Black voters — could set modern-day records for a Republican in a presidential election,” the Post’s Aaron Blake wrote. “Trump in 2020 took just 8 percent of Black voters and 36 percent of Hispanic voters, according to the Pew Research Center’s validated voter survey. Exit polls pegged those figures at 12 percent of Black voters and 32 percent of Hispanic voters.”
According to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll, President Joe Biden is significantly underperforming among nonwhite voters, especially when contrasted to his support in the 2020 race.
In polls from 2022 and 2023, Biden leads Donald Trump by 53% to 28% among registered nonwhite voters. According to the Times, Biden had 70% support from nonwhite voters in 2020.
In The Tilt, a Times newsletter, Nate Cohn, the Times’ top political analyst, pointed out an unusual trend:
“Democrats have lost ground among nonwhite voters in almost every election over the last decade, even as racially charged fights over everything from a border wall to kneeling during the national anthem might have been expected to produce the exact opposite result,” Cohn wrote.
Cohn’s statement exemplifies the cognitive dissonance felt by people on the left when actions and agendas intended to reduce minority support for Trump and the Republican Party are having the opposite impact.

Cohn also emphasized a significant generational difference among black voters. While “overwhelming support” remains among black registered voters over 45, with 83 percent supporting Biden to 8 percent opposing him, that lead reduces to 59 percent to 14 percent among black respondents under 45.
According to the Post, no Republican presidential contender has come close to receiving 20% of the black vote in the last 50 years. During this time period, Republicans’ average percentage of black voters was only 9 percent, a far cry from Trump’s current polling ratings.
Despite a recent trend of growing GOP support among Hispanic voters, the highest historical percentages for Republicans in the last 50 years were 37 percent in 1984 and an estimated 40 to 44 percent in 2004, according to the Post.
Trump hasn’t even clinched the Republican nomination, but the data provided by the Post and the Times indicate a shifting tide among the younger generation of minority voters — a shift that is forcing intellectual elites to confront the true impact of decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and empty promises.
Only a few weeks ago, Post columnist Philip Bump wrote an entire essay ridiculing Fox News’ Jesse Watters for claiming that Trump’s Georgia mug shot “unintentionally created a bond between Donald Trump and black Americans.”
Even the established media must recognize that the polls are conveying a compelling story.
Something was going on, whether it was the hot mugs or not.
Either former president Donald Trump’s standing in early 2024 polls is inflated, or we are headed for a sizable realignment in how non-White voters cast their ballots.https://t.co/EXOYFNfI8B

Younger minority voters are beginning to realize what politicians who pander and provoke without offering ideas to improve their condition have gotten them.
And they’re looking for someone better.
The chickens may be coming home to roost for Democrats.
