The White House insists that blacks are better off after President Obama’s eight years in office, but voters strongly disagree. No wonder Republican nominee Donald Trump is reaching out to black voters, saying they have “nothing to lose” by supporting him.
Only 13% of Likely U.S. Voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Obama’s election in November 2008. Forty-one percent (41%) believe it has gotten worse.
Even among black voters, only 15% say life for young black Americans is better now.
Sixty percent (60%) of all voters think race relations are worse since Obama’s election in 2008. Just nine percent (9%) believe race relations are better now.
Perhaps even more disturbing is that 50% of Americans believe race relations are getting worse, the highest level of pessimism ever in Rasmussen Reports surveying, and that was in January, before several high-profile police shootings and revenge killings of police officers.
By contrast, in January 2009, just before Obama’s inauguration, 70% of Americans said relations between black and white Americans were getting better. …
53% of blacks – and 72% of all voters – believe America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. …
Blacks strongly believe they are treated unfairly by the police, but most voters in general think crime in inner cities is a bigger problem than police discrimination against minorities.
Remember all that racial healing electing Obama was going to bring? More than counteracted by the lefty strategy of dividing the electorate by race, sex, gender etc, trying to get these blocks to feel disadvantaged and to vote for the left party. Very divisive.
