The approval ratings for Donald Trump rose nine points among black voters during the Republican National Convention for his second term.
The surprising poll was conducted by Hill-HarrisX and was conducted August 22-25.
The poll found a surprising answer when respondents were asked: “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President of the United States?”
According to The Hill:
Twenty-four percent of registered black voters in the Aug. 22-25 survey, which included the first two days of the convention, said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 76 percent said they disapprove.
That is up 9 points from the previous survey conducted Aug. 8-11, where the President received 15 percent support among this group.
The survey found support among Hispanic voters also grew by 2 percentage points, from 30 percent in the last poll to 32 percent in this most recent survey.
Zogby also found that Trump’s number has climbed.
In a poll of “likely voters,” Zogby found that Trump’s approval was 52 percent with his disapproval at 47.
This is important because it is common that when an elected official is under 50 percent, his re-election is in jeopardy.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have also begun losing support among Hispanics.
According to a CNN poll, Biden’s lead among registered voters had dropped with ten percent of Hispanic voters dumping Biden and opting for Trump
