MSNBC Admits Trump is Improving Among Hispanics in Recent Poll
Biden loses black and hispanic support
MSNBC's national political correspondent and analysts Steve Kornacki admitted President Donald Trump is gaining more support from Hispanics, a new poll now suggests.
Results from the NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll showed Joe Biden had grown within key demographic groups.
"Take a look at 2016, and you saw Hillary Clinton obviously overwhelmingly winning the black vote, overwhelmingly winning the Hispanic vote, and then Trump with a 20-point margin among white voters," said Kornacki.
He then noted how Biden was more or less even with Hillary Clinton in 2016 among black voters, with an 80-point net difference compared to 81 points, respectively.
"How about Hispanic voters?" Kornacki asked.
"There's actually been some growth here on the Trump side, not as much as a margin for Biden as there was for Clinton."
The graphic exhibits a 38-point favorable margin for Hillary Clinton in 2016 exit polling.
But it only shows a 26-point margin for Biden among Hispanics in the most recent poll.
Kornacki also revealed that support for Trump had decreased among white voters, most notably from college-educated white voters.
"But here is the biggest jump," he continued.
"This is the single biggest group, white voters. Just in terms of size, a 20-point Trump margin in 2016 right now in our poll has been cut all the way down to 7; now Trump leads by just 7 points in our poll."
Kornacki noted Trump won the white college-educated vote only by 3 points while winning a non-college-educated white vote with 37 points.
But Trump is still winning non-college-educated white voters by 24 points, according to the newest NBC polling.
"If that were to hold up, if that were to happen in the election day, that's just in territory in modern times we haven't seen for a Democrat," Kornacki said.
Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday that Biden lost support among black and Hispanic voters after announcing Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his 2020 running mate, a new CNN poll has revealed.
Former Vice President Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump in the national popular vote in the 2020 presidential election has now virtually evaporated.
The diminishing support for Biden comes just days after he named Harris as his running mate.
The drop is due to a significant decline in support from black and Hispanic voters, according to the poll published by CNN on Sunday evening.
