Fox News analyst says Trump needs African-American turnout to be low in Pennsylvania to win
A 2017 report by FiveThirtyEight, which cited polling data by SurveyMonkey, explained that"of all voters who cast a ballot in the general election, 25 percent were black, Hispanic, Asian, or a member of another minority group. But those voters were 42 percent of those who didn't vote. Drilling down a little further, black voters made up 11 percent of voters who cast a ballot and 19 percent who didn't."
Considering Trump narrowly won Pennsylvania by just 0.7 percent of the state's vote, even a relatively minor dip or increase in turnout from any segment of voters could potentially be the difference between victory for the president or Biden.Meanwhile, Trump has repeatedly claimed that he has been the best president for Black Americans besides Abraham Lincoln—who put an end to slavery through the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Trump's claim has been widely panned and mocked by his critics, as he is viewed as overtly racist by many Democrats. According to Pew Research polling released earlier this month, 89 percent of Black voters were leaning toward or strongly supporting Biden. Just 8 percent were leaning toward or strongly supporting Trump.
Opposing ViewIn December 2018, Trump signed the bipartisan First Step Act, which worked to reduce the federal prison population and reform federal prisons and sentencing guidelines. The legislation has been lauded as a significant reform that will particularly benefit the Black American community—which is significantly overrepresented in the U.S. prison population.
Although only 13.4 percent of the U.S. population is Black, some 33 percent of the inmates detained in U.S. prisons are Black. Pew Research Center reported in May that Black Americans are imprisoned at a rate five times higher than white Americans. Read more: Newsweek »
