Dem Rep. suggests Black pro-Trump surge is because they’re too dumb to ‘understand how any of this works’


A Texas Democrat is under fire for her reaction to new poll numbers showing former President Donald Trump’s popularity among black voters, as she seemed to suggest they may not be too bright politically.

Democrat Rep. Jasmine Crockett made the blunt comments on CNN’s “State of the Union” in response to data from a New York Times-Siena College poll released Sunday. The poll showed President Joe Biden leading only in Wisconsin, while his likely GOP opponent, former President Donald Trump left him trailing in key states including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

Significantly, the survey of voters found that “Black voters — long a bulwark for Democrats and for Mr. Biden — are now registering 22 percent support in these states for Mr. Trump, a level unseen in presidential politics for a Republican in modern times,” according to The New York Times.

In discussing these significant shifts in support, Crockett ignored the Democrat Party’s responsibility to voters and even the part Biden played in eroding their confidence in him. Instead, she seemed to take aim at black voters’ lack of “understanding” in “how any of this works.”

“Here’s the deal. Perception is reality,” the Texas Democrat said on CNN.

“And so when you look at the data that was provided in this poll, it talks about how people feel, and when people decide whether they’re going to the poll or whether they’re not going to the poll, it’s all about how you feel in that moment. And so while the facts may not align with their feelings, their feelings are dictating their reality. Their reality is that they said that they feel better or they felt better when Trump was in office. But we’ve been trying to push back,” she continued.

“We’ve got some very popular African-American artists that are out here saying things like, ‘Oh, I got checks when Trump was in office. I want those checks again,’ not understanding that really came from Congress,” Crockett declared.

“So we’ve got a couple of things the perception issue, and then we also have an issue as it relates to civics in this country and people not understanding exactly how any of this works,” she said.

The Democrat’s comments drew plenty of commentary on X, formerly Twitter:
