The White House insists that blacks are better off after President Obama’s eight years in office, but voters strongly disagree. No wonder Republican nominee Donald Trump is reaching out to black voters, saying they have “nothing to lose” by supporting him.
Only 13 percent of Likely U.S. voters who participated in a national Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Obama’s election in November 2008. Forty-one percent believe it has gotten worse.
Even among black voters, only 15 percent say life for young black Americans is better now.
