    While some here mused that Trump's message might be appealling to working class Black males, the poll numbers now are quite astonishing:

    But Trump is polling worse among black voters than almost every single Republican presidential nominee since 1948 in polls taken between the party conventions and Election Day.

    Trump is currently in fourth place among black voters. You read that correctly: He’s trailing Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein. Any one national poll typically has only about 100 African-American respondents — too small a sample to make much of the results. So here’s an average of the four live-interview surveys taken since the conventions, from ABC News/Washington Post, Fox News, Marist, and NBC News/Wall Street Journal:

    POLLSTER CLINTON JOHNSON STEIN TRUMP
    ABC News/Washington Post 83% 4% 8% 2%
    Fox News 85 7 — 1
    Marist 89 5 3 2
    NBC News/Wall Street Journal 86 0 4 1
    Average 86 4 5 2
    Trump is in fourth place among black voters
    Fox News did not include Jill Stein in its horse-race question.

    Trump’s 2 percent is just flat-out awful.1 And it doesn’t seem like a statistical fluke: Trump’s lack of appeal among black voters is pretty consistent, at 1 percent to 2 percent across the polls, and he trails Stein in the three post-convention surveys that included her.

    Only a fool would believe what some ignorant, prejudiced white men in this forum have
    to say--or fantasize--about what black men supposedly think about Donald Trump.
    If I want to know what black men really think, then I prefer to listen to black men.

    Of course, almost all black men know that Donald Trump's a racist. Many white men in
    this forum like to deny that Donald Trump's a racist. Some white men here might be
    honest enough to concede that he's a racist but still will vote for Donald Trump.
