This poll just unraveled Barack Obama’s entire presidency
Barack Obama’s legacy is unraveling.
Now a key constituency is realizing his presidency was a total failure.
And Obama won’t like the results of this recent poll.
A Rasmussen poll showed voters believe black Americans are better off under President Trump than they were under Barack Obama.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life for these Americans has gotten worse, while 26% think it has stayed about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
But in March 2014, just 16% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since Obama’s election five-and-a-half years earlier. By July 2016 in Obama’s final year in office, only 13% thought life was better for young blacks.
Even black voters are nearly twice as likely (28%) to say young black Americans are better off now than they were in the closing year of Obama’s presidency (15%).
Hollywood celebrities and the “fake news” media are trying to paint President Trump as a racist.
But the numbers don’t lie.
The May jobs report showed the economy added 223,000 jobs in one month.
The unemployment rate dropped to just 3.8% – the lowest in nearly two decades.
African-Americans benefitted most from this economy as the black unemployment rate reached its lowest point on record.
Even the failing New York Times had to admit, “We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are.”
