"Trump polls 1-2% among blacks. In '64 Goldwater got 6% after voting no on the Civil Rights Act. In '68 segregationist George Wallace won 3%."
Larry Sabato posted the above little tidbit on twitter, and I have no reason to believe that it's not true. This is because he happens to be a well respected pollster.
Those are pathetic numbers by any standard, his buddy David Duke would probably do better.
The thing is, though, given how trump has decided to kick off his African American outreach, this is not surprising. His idiotic monolithic view of African Americans is proof positive of just how out of touch he and his team is when it comes to black people. (Someone please tell Donald that we are not in the seventies anymore. He needs to stop watching those cartoonish black Blaxploitation flicks. "Imma get you sucker. You jive turkey". )
Brianna Kielar over at CNN is quickly becoming my favorite journalist, because she has been calling out these frauds from the trump camp of late.
