The 2020 presidential campaign comes at a time when Americans appear more politically divided than ever. Many analysts contend very few minds are capable of changing. Either you like President Trump or fear what one of the Democrats would do in office or you want virtually anyone but Trump and you’ll side with whoever the Democrats nominate.
But authors Bruce Eberle and Vernon Robinson believe Trump has the chance to make surprisingly large inroads with black voters, who have backed Republican nominees less than 10 percent of the time in recent election cycles. Their new book is entitled “Coming Home: How Black Americans Will Re-Elect Trump.”
So why is Trump in position to make significant gains after intense criticism of his handling of the deadly demonstrations in Charlottesville and other accusations of racism? What about the Trump record in his first term might cause black voters to take a closer look? Why might polls of black voters prior to the election distort reality? And how might the Democrats try to prevent Trump from making any significant gains?
Bruce Eberle addresses all of these questions in his conversation with Greg Corombos.
