According to a top political analyst, Gianno Caldwell, the democrats options for 2020 are by no means appealing to young African American voters – a demographic the Democrats have been taking advantage of for years.
Caldwell said that young African Americans are seeing through the constant lies of the Democrat party. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris who have an illustrious history of locking up young black men, are no exception to that.
“For every African American, especially, young African Americans, we point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law,” Caldwell said while on “Fox and Friends.”
Caldwell added that the legislation was “very intentional and it created a fair amount of injustice for African Americans.”
“Joe Biden is a part of the problem therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them,” Caldwell said.
“Some of them just say hey, we’re not going to vote because they are a part of the system that got us in this mess to begin with,” Caldwell said.
“Joe Biden is going to have an issue because there is no way he is going to get President Obama’s 2008 numbers when it comes to African American support, which [was] at 94, 95, 96 percent. He is not going to get that, therefore, I think Joe Biden is going to lose this race for president.”
While support for Joe Biden may not be all there – President Trump is surging in the polls at precisely the right time.
In its latest monthly score of Trump’s approval ratings, Rasmussen Reports said that Trump has bounced off his floor and is on a steady upward climb.
On Monday, Rasmussen said, Trump’s monthly average of approval ratings was 48% in August. That is up from 47% in July and 45% in June when the White House faced harsh criticism for its handling of the coronavirus.
His monthly high this year came in February when it hit 49%.
At 48%, Trump is exactly where President Barack Obama was going into his reelection when he defeated Mitt Romney.
His daily average has also been spiking, and on Friday, Rasmussen set it at 52%, also his highest since February.
Rasmussen explained the difference between the daily and monthly index this way:
“When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.
As the coronavirus lockdown eases and the economy races to recover, Trump earned a monthly job approval of 48% in August, up from 47% in July and 45% the month before. His high for the year to date is 49% in February. In 2019, Trump’s monthly approval ran from a low of 44% in January to a high of 50% in April. He ended the year at 49%. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of the president’s job performance this August, down one point from the month before.”
