Donald Trump gets 25% of the black vote in a recent poll. That would be more than enough to bust the notion that a Republican candidate for president could only get about 10% of the black vote. Looking even deeper into this poll, Trump gets 31% of the Hispanic voter, too. That, too, puts Trump way ahead of Romney’s take of the Hispanic vote.

1. Surprising Survey Results

A SurveyUSA poll released Friday shows in a hypothetical matchup with Hillary Clinton, Trump is ahead 45% to 40%.

But digging into the racial breakdown of the respondents is revealing. For example, the poll finds 25% of black respondents say they would vote for Trump over Clinton.

When President Obama was running for re-election, despite a sputtering economy that was impacting blacks the worst, Mitt Romney was able to only muster 6% of the black vote, according to the Roper Center at the University of Connecticut.

Interestingly, Trump is also outpacing Romney’s support among Hispanics. The SurveyUSA poll finds 31% of Hispanics would vote for Trump. In the 2012 general election, Romney received only 27%, according to the Roper Center. via The American Mirror
