    Trump is currently polling around 19 - 23% of the African American vote, enough to guarantee a landslide victory in November if the trend continues ..

    You're talking about the percentage who think he will win, not those who will actually go out and vote for him, which is closer to 19%. Still better than the 4% that I say on another poll or the 2-10% according to Nate Silver's poll.

    I don't see what would bring about a big win from African Americans other than Clinton screwing up royally. It's not like Trump is actually a good choice so it's more like being trapped between a rock and a hard place.

    Wouldn't surprise me if a number of black people - while not liking Trump - are turned off from the Dems at the minute and all their identity politics nonsense.*

    Look at them (Dems), climbing on board with those BLM idiots. No black American I know (which is quite a few) would be caught dead associating with that lot. *
