Right Wing Site Credits Kanye For Doubled Trump Approval Rating, Claims Rapper Is Getting Fans Off The ‘Thought Plantation’

Posted On : 05/10/2018

For the past couple weeks, Kanye West has been getting dragged for his support of Donald Trump. But despite the negativity surrounding the “New Slaves” rapper’s “Make America Great Again” rant, it looks like he’s still managed to influence the masses – well sort of. According to Breitbart, the black male approval rate of Donald Trump has reportedly doubled since Kanye openly shared his prospect and released his new controversial track, “Ye v. The People” with T.I.

The Ridiculous Poll:

The widely popular, ring-wing publication is reporting on a Reuters poll that seems to insinuate a spike in Trump’s approval rating among black men. Initially, Trump was reportedly favorable among less than 10% of black males, now the numbers appear to have jumped. Umm…yeah, right… The publication claims another factor for the low approval rating may be “mixed feelings” and not necessarily dislike. Yeah… okay. Breitbart is crediting Kanye’s perspective of “unlocking the mind to see outside the Left’s Thought Plantation” for “reaching people.” What an interesting way to word Kanye’s perspective. But, nevertheless,

Trump’s overall approval among black Americans also nearly doubled, with a jump from 8.9 percent to 16.5 percent. Another interesting metric was on the issue of “mixed feelings.” Opinions on Trump among black males were hardened on the 22nd when only 1.5 percent said they have “mixed feelings” on the president. A week later that number jumped to 7.1 percent, which would suggest Kanye West’s goal of unlocking the mind to see outside the Left’s Thought Plantation is reaching people. Overall, these might seem like small shifts — 11 percent to 22 percent, or 8.9 percent to 16.5 percent. This looks like it is still an awfully low level of support. The truth, though, is that (if these numbers are more than just statistical noise), if there truly is an increase of support for Trump among black voters, even an increase that is half of what we are seeing here, the real world effect could be monumental. – Brietbart

The Big Problem:

However, there’s just one problem – the so-called poll is said to have been based on the opinion of just 200 black men. We all know that’s not nearly enough men to form an opinion of an entire race. So does it really prove anything? Most likely not. As long as Trump is Trump, the vast majority of African Americans will not approve of Trump.

Kanye’s Sunken Place:

The latest reports follow Kanye’s Trump rant, which reportedly cost him millions of followers on social media. While this definitely wasn’t Kanye’s first rant, and probably not his last, fans really lost patience with the “Power” rapper this time around and he may have gone way too far. On April 25, Kanye kicked off his rant with a screenshot of Donald Trump’s Twitter page and the MAGA hat. By the time Kanye finished the controversial rant, fans were convinced the rapper had drifted to the “sunken place” with no chance of return.

A Gift To Racists:

To many people, including CNN anti-Trump activist Brian Stelter, Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump is only going to create more controversy in the long run. In fact, Stelter has described Kanye as a “gift to racists.” He said “This poll will only increase the personal attacks on West. And if West continues to hold his ground and if these numbers look the same come November, second only to Trump will West be targeted for annihilation.”

Fans would like to think this is just a phase and Kanye will one day wake up but unfortunately it’s not lookin’ too good.
