The Democratic Party’s racial obsession may mask it, but you are seeing a shift in the political realignment of racial demographics right before your very eyes.
This was observed on Tuesday by Aaron Blake, who noticed that former President Donald Trump is “performing historically well among black and Hispanic voters” in head-to-head polling with President Joe Biden. The ongoing shift in voting patterns among Hispanics, particularly in Florida and Texas, has been well documented, but Trump is averaging 20% among black voters, which would be a massive shift. As Blake notes, no GOP presidential candidate has hit that mark in the past 60 years.
But Trump is not the only one pulling these numbers. Fox News found that each of the following candidates is pulling around 20% of black voters in a head-to-head match-up with Biden: Trump (21%), Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) (21%), former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (21%), Vivek Ramaswamy (22%), former Vice President Mike Pence (18%), and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (21%). Along with them, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is pulling 15%.
