Rasmussen is reporting a pretty significant fact which may make Democrats completely lose their minds.

Because if this holds, it’s game over for them come the election.

Rasmussen notes that they’re looking at likely voters which may explain why they were the most accurate in 2016.

Thirty four percent approval for President Donald Trump. And that’s not an outlier with other Rasmussen tallies, the average has actually gone up since last year when it was in the 20s.

Rasmussen also noted how this number correlates with Emerson’s latest poll which noted how support for impeachment has dropped. Emerson has approval from black registered voters for Trump at 34.5 percent.

Trump got eight percent of the black vote in 2016 when he won, according to Real Clear Politics.

As they noted last year:

Even 20 percent African-American support for Trump would all but dismantle Democratic Party presidential hopes for 2020. Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election with 88 percent of the black vote. That was about a six-point falloff from Barack Obama’s share of the black vote in 2012.

But far more importantly, an estimated 2 million of the African-American voters who cast ballots for Obama in 2012 simply did not show up at the polls in 2016 to vote for the off-putting Clinton.

Even a small drop in African-American turnout or anything less than the usual 85 percent to 90 percent supermajority for a Democratic presidential candidate on Election Day can prove fatal.

The reasons are multifaceted. Trump making an effort to reach out for black support, record low black unemployment, more jobs and a strong economy. But it’s also because of the leftward movement of the Democratic Party and people feeling that it doesn’t speak to them anymore, that Trump’s concentration on America, jobs and the economy does.
