Just weeks ago, the polls looked to be swinging heavily in Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s favor, but the tables are turning at break-neck speed.
According to a new Hill-HarrisX poll, Donald Trump’s approval rating among Black and Hispanic voters skyrocketed after the Republican National Convention — words the Democrat party never thought they would hear.
The survey, conducted between August 22-25, found that twenty-four percent of registered black voters approve of the job Trump is doing, a shocking nine-point increase from the last poll conducted from August 8-11.
The survey also found that Trump’s approval among Hispanic voters improved two points, from 30 to 32 percent since the last poll was taken.
This isn’t the only poll showing that Biden’s previously insurmountable lead is slipping.
According to a CloudResearch poll released this week, Republicans and Independents are twice as likely to conceal their voting preferences for fear of retaliation from the cancel-culture mob.
CloudResearch noted that “11.7% of Republicans say they would not report their true opinions about their preferred presidential candidate on telephone polls. 10.5% of Independents fell into the “shy voter” category, just a percentage point lower than how Republicans react to phone polls.”
By contrast, just 5.4 percent of Democrat voters are reluctant to reveal their voting preferences.
Though Biden still holds tenuous leads in many national polls, this poll should cause alarm bells to go off among Democrat-leaning pollsters.
It’s clear that large quantities of Independent and Republican voters are unlikely to publically vocalize whether they will vote for Trump, meaning that many polls are likely underestimating the true level of support for Donald Trump.
