Rudy Giuliani: “Biden is part of the problem for poor urban Blacks”


It's common knowledge that African tend to vote in droves for Democrats.

But what exactly has that gotten them?

Look at Democrat ran cities.

Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City.

They're full of crime and many African Americans in these cities are stuck in poverty.

And who better to point out Democrats record than former New York City Mayor Rudy Guliani!

In a scathing new op-ed for the Washington Times, Guliani points out that Biden has nothing to offer African Americans:

From the very outset of his campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden has presented himself to Black America as a savior figure for whom they have a moral duty to vote. It’s a total fraud. Mr. Biden is part of the problem for poor urban Blacks. He is not part of the solution.

Mr. Biden’s announcement speech was a blatant attempt to racially divide people. He worked hard to make the audience view White supremacists as “a threat to our nation …” — which they are — but failed to mention other threats to Blacks and other Americans that are thousands of times worse.

Although his remarks were intended to divide, he still presented himself as the one who could unite. Over a year later, he was telling radio host Charlamagne tha God that “you ain’t black” if you haven’t decided to vote for him yet. Such a statement can only come from an arrogant, entitled career politician who thinks he owns Blacks and the Black vote.

It is a strategy that is consistent with what Mr. Biden and the Democratic Party have offered African-Americans for the entirety of Mr. Biden’s political career: fear and dependency.

The narrative of fear is fatally misleading. It points people in the direction of the least threat, and it ignores the greatest threat. In reality, far more Black lives are lost from the explosion of violent crime in America’s major cities than from Mr. Biden’s White supremacist bogeymen.

Guliani hits the nail on the head.

Democrats believe they own the black vote and that all they have to do is run around yelling how Republicans are "racists" and "white supremacists."

The reality couldn't be further from the truth.

Republicans want to maintain law and order in our cities, something that will allow African Americans to lift themselves out of poverty by making it safe to do business in these cities.

Check out what's trending on Twitter over Biden and African Americans:

The Democrats record with actually delivering results to African Americans may be reflecting in the current poll numbers.

CNN reported last month how Biden's advantage with black voters is smaller than the one Hillary Clinton had:

The death of George Floyd and subsequent protests reshaped the presidential race. It brought race relations, racism and police brutality to the forefront.

In that time, former Vice President Joe Biden's advantage over President Donald Trump expanded from about six points to closer to 10 points.
Interestingly, however, Trump continues to do something perhaps unexpectedly among Black voters: Hold his own against Biden relative to many people's expectations.
There have been over 10 national live interview polls since the protests began for which I could assess Black voter sentiment in the presidential race. Altogether, we're looking at well more than 1,000 interviews.

Biden leads in those polls by an 83% to 8%, or 75-point, margin. That, of course, is a huge advantage for Biden, but it also represents a small improvement for Trump since 2016.
Hillary Clinton was ahead of Trump by a 79-point margin among Black registered voters in the pre-election polls taken right before the 2016 election, as compiled by the New York Times' Nate Cohn. Biden, for what it's worth, is equaling Clinton's 83% in those polls. Trump's picking up a lot of the vote that went to third-party candidates.

Given the way margins of error work (i.e. it gets smaller as the result gets more extreme), this slight improvement for Trump from 2016 is statistically significant.
Biden currently has such a large lead overall that Trump's small gain among Black voters doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of the 2020 election. But if the race for president tightens, Trump's small gain with Black voters could make a difference. It could cost Biden 0.5 points nationally on the whole compared to where Clinton ended up. That may not seem like a lot, though it could make the difference in a close election. And, of course, Biden's margin with Black voters may tighten further if the margin with other voters also shifts.

Historically, Trump is doing as well and probably even a touch better than Republicans normally do among Black voters. While we don't have a bulk of pre-election polling for many prior years like we do for 2016, the American National Election Studies pre-election polls show that since 1964, the average Democrat has earned 86% to the average Republican's 6%. That 80-point margin is wider than the current 75-point margin Biden current earns.

And who could forget the disgusting "you ain't black" comment Biden made in May:

When November rolls around, hopefully African Americans will remember that Trump actually delivered to their communities and gave them the lowest unemployment levels in decades!
