It is no secret that minorities don’t tend to be big fans of Donald Trump. Go figure, people of color don’t really want to elect a president who has been endorsed by the KKK. Trump recently started making some p*ss poor efforts at “outreach,” aka telling blacks they have nothing to lose by voting for him since their lives completely suck anyway. But a new poll reveals that this probably isn’t working. In fact, the GOP nominee is so disliked among African Americans and Hispanics he is even lagging behind bedbugs and the Bubonic plague in popularity.
According to a new survey from Public Policy Polling, voters think all kinds of not-so-nice things are preferable to the bigoted billionaire that is currently heading up the Republican party. Middle seats on airplanes, personal injury attorneys, mosquitos, bedbugs, and the bubonic plague were all seen as preferable to Trump.
In similar fashion, the poll revealed that a full 97 percent of black Americans have an “unfavorable” view of Donald Trump, while only three percent said they were unsure. The percentage of respondents who viewed the bigoted billionaire favorably was so low that it was considered negligible and indicated with only a scratch mark.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pointed out that former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, who is running for a Senate seat, has a new robocall urging voters to support himself and the Republican nominee, which isn’t likely to do Trump any favors among minorities.
I don’t know if it’s possible for Donald Trump to actually poll lower than a scratch mark with a demographic in this country, but we may be about to find out,” Maddow said.

In the past two weeks, Trump has been experimenting with “minority outreach,” but it is fairly obvious that he needs to go back to the drawing board. Trump has addressed the same overwhelmingly white crowds as always and his schpeel consisted of listing all the stereotypes he could think of about the plights of black Americans. He then used the reasoning that blacks might as well vote for him because it isn’t like things could get any worse.
Some people have pointed out that, quite possibly, Trump isn’t actually reaching out to African Americans at all but is really just trying to convince white voters who are afraid to vote for a raging bigot that maybe he isn’t as much of a racist as they think he is.
