On a sunny day in Atlanta, Georgia, President Donald Trump stepped inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant, picking up the tab for supporters’ milkshakes, shaking dozens of hands, and reminding the nation that grassroots, organic campaigning is one of his top political superpowers.

The restaurant was filled with potential voters who expressed their excitement for the president’s 2024 campaign. One enthusiastic woman told the president, “I don’t care what the media tells you, Mr. Trump; we support you!”

Trump replied, “Come here – let me give you a hug!”

In Atlanta, a large chunk of prospective voters come from the black community, and despite mainstream narratives, that woman was right: the people support Trump’s campaign bid, especially among the black community.

In fact, Trump has made historic gains left and right with important voting blocs in America headed into the November 2024 general election. CBS News acknowledged in March that Trump’s support among U.S. black voters has swelled 19 points since 2020.

And, as Trump powerfully gains among black voters who are concerned about the future of their country, Biden is bleeding support among the same community. A new mainstream poll from The Wall Street Journal found that 30 percent of black men have indicated that they will “definitely or probably” vote for Trump in the 2024 presidential election – a hefty voting bloc and a huge uptick from the 12 percent who indicated that they would vote for Trump in 2020.

In another blow to Biden, black women indicated (42 percent) that they haven’t decided on a candidate yet and remain open to voting for an Independent option, which WSJ pointed out on the subject of the undecided demographic, “the share of Black women is noteworthy, given that they are among the most loyal Democratic groups in the electorate.”

As Biden’s support among black voters slips, Trump is making tremendous gains, signaling electoral strength for the 45th president in the 2024 election and buoyed up by better-than-ever numbers.
