For there to be a 3% margin of error for the demographic, they would've needed to sample about 1000 black voters. Assuredly, they probably polled about 1000 in total comprising ~150 black voters, which would yield a much larger error. I take that to imply that Trump's support among African Americans could, in fact, be negative.
 
2020-05-21 3:58:18 PM  
He'll probably start using a darker shade of orange, trying to 'blend in'.

Isn't that low for a Democratic candidate? I thought Hillary got into the 90s.
 
2020-05-21 3:58:34 PM  
Yes, but, I'm just not inspired to vote against the hollowing out of my nation.  I need to be inspired, you guys.  Inspire me!

Soup4Bonnie: Now do white men over 50


unfortunately they didn't publish age+race

Biden is leading all age groups

18-34: 51-33
35-49: 50-38
50-64: 51-43
65+: 51-41

White men though he's losing 35-56 .  White women he's winning 52-41.  Which gives a "total white voter" of 48-44

goddamn so many people i share a skin color with are dumb racist farks

Trump should ask that black reporter to convene the council of the blacks so he can make his case.

Does that really say that Trump voters think the Economy is fine and in no danger?

Holy fark

I'm a white man over 50...  I definitely will NOT be voting for that Obama fellow.

On the other hand, I will cast a positive vote for Trump... if the vote is a referendum question on whether to prosecute him
 
2020-05-21 4:01:52 PM  
I can't wait to see how Trump's campaign reacts to this. Will they dangle some federal funds in front of some predominately black organization with the promise of federal funding increases in exchange for a feel-good photo op or will Trump simply have lunch with Diamond and Silk?

But I thought black people were "getting off the plantation" by getting on the Trump train.

I always get a kick out of conservatives not realizing how offensively patronizing that talking point sounds.

They absolutely have to ignore the evidence of their eyes and ears to maintain their worldview. They're lying to themselves. If they had to choose between a bullet in the head and admitting Trump is a trash president, we'd need to buy a lot of bullets.

I'm absolutely okay with us needing a lot of bullets. I hate these f*cking people.
 
2020-05-21 4:06:07 PM  
That 3% is either the margin of error, or Ben Carson was in the pool of people polled.
 
2020-05-21 4:06:33 PM  
Three percent?  I'll bet we can name like half of them here.  Ben Carson, Diamond and Silk, that one guy, Candace Owens.


Also, oblig.

I had to go check myself, I did not think it was real. I had no doubt Biden did better in that demographic but wow.

The data you subsequently posted shows white men over 50 supporting Biden by a margin of at least 8%. Is your data anecdotal?

I'm continually shocked that the numbers are that close. I really wish I could find a way to leverage the stupidity of roughly half my countrymen to become rich, because they're dumb as f*ck.
 
2020-05-21 4:10:24 PM  
Let's re-poll when Harris or Abrams is named VP. Pretty sure that number moves a bit...or a lot.
