There was no question that Kanye West’s endorsement of President Trump was going to change a lot of hearts and minds in the black community.
In the first seven days since Kanye’s coming out party, support for President Trump among black males has doubled. And it is just starting!
From The Daily Caller
Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval.take our poll - story continues below
A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall.
Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29.
Black males were also far more likely to say that they had “mixed feelings” about the president. On the 22nd, 1.5 percent said they had mixed feelings, while 7.1 percent said the same on the 29th.
The results are interesting given the recent transformation of Kanye West, who posted a picture of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat on his Twitter account last week.
