As we reported yesterday, two new polls have come out showing increased support for President Trump among African Americans. Rasmussen Reports has found 34% support for the president among this normally heavily pro-Democrat minority, while Emerson says it’s 34.5%. Since Rasmussen was the most accurate pollster in 2016 and these results are so close, there’s little reason to believe them to be wrong.
However, accepting them as “probably accurate” requires one to think rationally. Sadly, doing so is above the paygrade of members of the mainstream media. And so we have to deal with this nonsense:
Zero chance this is accurate. Zero. The poll must have only been conducted in the homes of Ben Carson, Kanye, that sheriff guy with the hat and those two Cubic Zirconia & Polyester-Spandex ladies. https://t.co/vsmXJBY1KB

CNN’s Ana Navarro-Cárdenas simply refuses to believe the poll results. Why? Does she have legitimate criticism of the methods used by Rasmussen and Emerson? Of course not. No. The results can’t be right because she — a radical leftist member of the MSM — hates Trump and believes him to be a racist. Obviously, African American voters have to agree with her assessment.
“Zero chance this is accurate,” Madam “How-Dare-They-Leave-The-Plantation” writes. “The poll must have only been conducted in the homes of Ben Carson, Kanye, that sheriff guy with the hat and those two Cubic Zirconia & Polyester-Spandex ladies.”
Ah, yes. That smear again: any black person who supports the president or who believes in conservative principles is crazy and should not be taken seriously. That’s, of course, what she implies in this tweet.
Now, please note that if a Trump supporter (or a conservative in general) would have described any African American in such a manner, Navarro-Cárdenas would automatically and passionately accuse them of racism. But, because she’s a leftist, a Hispanic, and a woman on top of that (I hope I’m not misgendering here!) she gets a break.
She believes that she can predict the political beliefs of an entire group of people, simply because of the color of their skin. It doesn’t get much more racist than that.
