The First Black President: Twice as Many Voters Say TRUMP Better for Blacks Than Barack Obama
33% of likely voters say President Trump has made life better for African Americans.
When Obama left office in 2099 only 13% of likely voters said he made life batter for African Americans.
With unemployment for black Americans at an historic low, voters continue to believe President Trump has been better for young blacks than President Obama. But voters also still feel the government could do more and don’t think Trump’s rotten relationship with black members of Congress helps.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life is worse for young blacks now, while 22% rate it as about the same. These findings have changed very little from a year ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
By comparison, in July 2016, Obama’s final year in office, just 13% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since the election of the nation’s first black president.
