TRUMP STATES HE’S POPULAR AMONG AFRICAN AMERICANS THANKS TO KANYE AND KIM
President Trump told Kim Kardashian that her and Kanyé are boosting his popularity with African-Americans, according to two people familiar with the matter. Trump appeared to be referring to data from a Reuters weekly tracking poll, in which the portion of black men approving of Trump rose from 11 percent the week ending April 22 to 22 percent for the week ending April 29. But Reuters considers the number of African American respondents to those weekly polls too small to reliably indicate a shift in opinion.
Monthly data shows approval of Trump among African-Americans rose from 12 percent in April to 18 percent in May. Among black men, the president’s approval rose from 16 percent in April to 22 percent in May, according to the poll.
