Jim McLaughlin to Newsmax TV: Trump Can Get 20 Percent of Black Vote

President Donald Trump could grab as much as 15-20% of the African American vote this November, according to GOP pollster and political consultant Jim McLaughlin said Thursday.

In an interview on Newsmax TV's "Spicer & Co.," McLaughlin said jobs are key for voters.

"The president is getting significantly higher job ratings among African Americans and Hispanics," he maintained, adding Trump "doesn't need to get 40% of the African American vote" – although one poll showed him polling that high among black voters.

"I can see him getting 15-20%," McLaughlin said, adding if he polls that well "especially in the battleground states, it'll be an easy election for him."

In McLaughlin's view, the president sees polls as "a necessary evil," but "doesn't govern" by them, using the example of polling on the renaming of bases named after Confederate figures and removing statues of them.

"Most Americans have a lot more common sense," he said, noting they "don't want to get rid of our own history . . . Americans don't want to see . . . erasing our history."

"It's gone too far," he said of the monument controversy.
