GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has been doing everything he can to reach out to black Americans, even going to Detroit, Michigan this past weekend to attend a church event with black church leaders.
And now, Trump’s poll numbers with the African American community seem to be reflecting his outreach efforts.
Trump polled at 36 percent nationally among likely Hispanic voters and 19 percent among African-American voters, according to the recent FPU/Herald survey.
Compare those numbers from the black community to polling just a couple months ago that reported Trump was only at one percent with those minority voters.
The Root reported in early July:
According to the Quinnipiac University poll, just 1 percent of African-American voters supported Trump. That was well behind the 6 percent of the black vote that went to Mitt Romney in 2012, and the 4 percent that supported John McCain in 2008, the newspaper reported.
July 2016: 1%
September 2016: 19%

Seems that Trump’s outreach to minorities is paying off. Somewhere, Hillary Clinton is coughing up a lung over this news!
