A New Zogby Poll Explains Democrats’ focus on supposed racism. Yesterday’s Washington Examiner says President Trump’s approval rate is up to 51%, with a 47% disapproval rate. From the article.

President Trump’s approval rating has edged up, driven by long-term confidence in his economy and boosted by the lackluster performances of the two dozen Democrats trying to beat him in the 2020 election, according to the latest Zogby Analytics poll.

The article expands on its explanation, quoting Jonathan Zogby

“It’s true Trump is riding high on positive economic news,” he said.
But, he added, “It’s also very plausible he is benefiting from poor performances by the Democratic presidential candidates who have continued to move very far to the left with their policies. The Democrats have floated nationalizing healthcare, strict gun control, ‘The Green New Deal,’ and raising taxes, all which are very unpopular in polling on a national level and in key battleground states.”

And here is what has the Democrats screaming “Racist!” every other second. More from Zogby

“Race also played a factor in Trump’s job approval rating. Hispanics, this time around, were much more likely to approve of his job performance (49% approve/51% disapprove), while the president also saw his numbers jump with African Americans. This was his second straight poll with over a quarter support from African Americans (28% approve/70% disapprove). If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!”

“If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!”

Indeed. Now you know why the Left is throwing the race card. As I have mentioned previously, there are more than a few Blacks (and Hispanics) who listened in 2016 when Candidate Trump famously asked them, “What do you have to lose?” They took a chance and voted for Trump. Like I said previously, they will be back to flip the lever for The President and if Zogby has his numbers correct, they will be bringing some friends along with them. The Democrats should be afraid…very afraid.
