Trump Approval Ratings Break Records With Black Americans After ICE Raids, Hit 49% With Hispanics


The American people need, and want, a president who stays true to his word.

That’s why Donald Trump’s approval ratings just keep rising, especially as he continues to fulfill the promises he has made to the citizens of our nation!

After the massive ICE raids in Mississippi that led to the arrest of 680 illegal immigrants, approval ratings with black Americans soared through the roof, breaking records, due in large to the employment opportunities and betterment of work conditions that the arrest of illegal aliens opened up for African-Americans.

Approval with Hispanics is also at nearly half, as a recent poll found that 49% of Hispanics approve of President Trump after the ICE raids.


Here's what the poll found from Zogby Analytics:

Trump is winning with urban voters and has record support with African Americans


A new Zogby Poll® of 897 likely voters nationwide in the U.S., conducted from 8/9/19-8/12/19, with a margin of sampling error of +/-3.3 percentage points, shows President Trump's job approval rating at its best since we've been tracking the figure.  A separate poll of adults in Canada was conducted 8/9/19-8/11/19 with a margin of sampling error of +/- 4.3 percentage points.

President Trump's job approval has continued to rise the last few months. We previously saw a post Mueller report bounce and a strong economy has definitely helped him. But that's not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. It's true Trump is riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home. 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.

Overall, a slim majority (51%--27% strongly and 24% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump's job as president, while 47% disapprove-37% strongly and 10% somewhat disapprove; only 2% were not sure.

President Trump continues to score well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (46% approve/50% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (44% approve/53% disapprove). Usually, Trump does best with voters over 50, but in our latest poll, he is receiving solid support from voters under 50--a majority of Generation X voters aged 30-49 approved of Trump's job as president (51% approve/49% disapprove).

The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (52% approve/47% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (52% approve/46% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+ and 70+ , Trump's job approval rebounded (57% approve/42% disapprove and 62% approve/38% disapprove, respectively). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/41% disapprove) and he continued to improve his support with all women (44% approve/53% disapprove).

When it came to the political party of respondents, 79% of Democrats disapproved of Trump, while 21% approved of Trump. An overwhelming number of Republicans approved (86% approve/13% disapprove), while Independents were more balanced in their impression of Trump's job performance (45% approve/50% disapprove). The president's numbers continue to improve with Independents, which a few months ago his approval rating was in the 30's.

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!

Following the Mississippi ICE raids, huge job fairs attracted unemployed, mostly African-American citizens, some of which are reporting the the arrest of illegal immigrants is causing businesses to pay better and improve their working environment to attract legal Americans to work for them.

Breitbart had the following to say on this and the surge of approval for President Trump:

Last week, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across seven food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on “humanitarian grounds.” More than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records.

The latest Zogby Analytics poll, conducted days after the highly-publicized ICE raids, finds that about 49 percent of Hispanic Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Another 51 percent said they disapprove.

Meanwhile, Trump’s support among black Americans has surged. Nearly three-in-ten black Americans now say they support the job Trump is doing as president — the second consecutive poll showing over a quarter of black Americans support Trump. About seven-in-ten black Americans said they disapprove of Trump.

Since the raids, the food processing plants have been forced to hold job fairs in the area, potentially increasing wages and bettering working conditions to attract and compete for American workers rather than relying on an underclass of exploited illegal workers. One potential worker said the processing plant was offering $12 an hour, but he would like to negotiate a salary of $15 an hour.
