Once again we see that President Donald Trump has been better for blacks in less than two years than Barack Obama was in eight with news that the number of blacks who own businesses has soared 400 percent since Trump took office.
Trump really IS Making America Great Again (MAGA)!
According to Black Enterprise:
African American business owners are on the rise. According to the Minority 2018 Small Business Trends survey, the number of black-owned small businesses in the U.S. increased by a staggering 400% in a year-over-year time period from 2017 to 2018.
The new survey, which was conducted by Guidant Financial and LendingClub, interviewed more than 2,600 business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. It found that 45% of all small business in the country were owned by minority ethnic groups in 2018. This is a dramatic uptick from 2015 when the total percentage of minority business owners was 15%. The largest minority group of respondents were African American at 19%, followed by Hispanic at 14%, Asian at 8%, and Native American at 4%.
Of the African American small business owners surveyed, 63% identified as men and 38% as women. Most fell between the ages of 40 to 49 with 28%, while 25% were between 50 and 59 years old, and 22% are 30 to 39. The research also showed that the highest volume of African American entrepreneurs lives in Texas, followed by Georgia, California, Florida, and North Carolina.
With this news it makes sense why some polls are finding support for Trump climbing among the nation’s African Americans.
The NAACP is furious that its own poll just revealed that there has been a noticeable surge in support for President Donald Trump among blacks in the U.S. today.
Last week we spoke about a poll that showed that support for Trump among blacks had doubled in a year.
Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll showed that Trump’s approval rate among blacks has spiked from 15 percent in 2017 to 29 percent today.
Well, apparently the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) also saw that poll and decided to do their own poll to counter the claim that black support is growing.
They were sorely disappointed when their own poll found the same thing, according to American Thinker:
Dependence on 90% voting support from African-Americans for electoral success is the jugular vein of the Democratic Party. President Trump’s rising support among black voters is correctly seen as an existential threat to the party’s – and progressivism’s – ability to win national elections. That’s why I thought it was big news last Saturday when Rasmussen proclaimed that black approval of Trump had hit 29%, even though most of the media ignored it for reasons AT readers well understand.
But the surge in black support for President Trump is real – so real that even the far-left NAACP discovered it in a poll, though that poll (perhaps with a differently worded question) put the support at 21%. Here is a graphic presentation of the result, showing the support for Trump among various ethnicities:
So what did the NAACP say about its poll? Well, it ignored the facts it found and doubled down on anti-Trumpism.
Here is what the group said in a statement:
The NAACP said in its poll analysis, “Voters across all racial and ethnic groups believe Trump is setting race relations back. Three quarters of African-Americans, Latinos and Asian-Americans believe Trump is setting race relations back while a small majority of white voters believe so. Black women (89 percent), in particular, feel disrespected by President Trump.”
So, despite the growth in support, the NAACP is sticking with its party line and ignoring the facts.
Sad, isn’t it?
The group also produced a great infographic that shows all the trends for black-owned businesses:
