Did Black Lives Matter Just Give Trump a 2020 In-Kind Contribution to His Re-election Effort?

black lives matterSo, are we shocked that support for Black Lives Matter has dropped like a rock? Look at what these folks did over the summer? They destroyed the livelihoods of countless people with their rioting, looting, arson, and other acts of violence. Oh, and did we mention that this movement has pretty much been taken over by white liberals? The leftist riots over the summer were the costliest in history.  Maybe that’s why support has dipped (via The Hill):

Support for the Black Lives Matter movement dropped by 12 percentage points since June, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.

Fifty-five percent of U.S. adults said that they supported the racial justice movement in the September survey, compared with 67 percent in June who said the same.

[…]

White Americans’ support for Black Lives Matter went down from 60 percent in June to 45 percent in September and among Hispanic Americans support decreased from 77 percent to 66 percent. Support for the movement among Asian Americans went down from 75 percent to 69 percent since June.

The shift has created a new class of swing voter this cycle that is developing in key states this election, which has been buried in some of the coverage of the polls. The New York Times tried to suffocate a former BLM supporter’s remarks in their piece recently, where she noted that the movement took things too far and that she can no longer stand by BLM. She’s undecided but added that Joe Biden had not done enough to condemn the violence. In fact, voters over the age of 65 in Minnesota, Nevada, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire and Wisconsin felt the same way.

The rioting is starting to impact the polls and Democrats hilariously thought that 90+ days of violence from their people wouldn’t go unnoticed. It’s hard to hide that when cities like Minneapolis burn to the ground. So, maybe BLM is doing the Trump campaign a solid with this in-kind contribution.

Ha!

People with any common sense should look at this”peaceful rioting”and realize what this is doing to the lives of innocent people and their lively hood.But common sense is not very common anymore.I fear that the word”sheeple”has replaced the words”common sense”.

No matter who is behind the protests/riots, The whole country has suffered because of them. I am sure that some of the rioters were local & are now faced with some of the businesses never opening again which means some local citizens have no job to go back to. And for example, I find it very hard to believe that very many people would vacation in Seattle or Portland this year. In addition, both cities professional sport teams and ???? This division in the USA must stop or this country will never get back to normal. If you love America,… Read more »

I expect an almost daily great announcement from Trump for the next month. More middle east countries agreeing to an Israel peace deal.
Unemployment going down. Covid trends continuing to decline downward. More wall going up on the southern border. Approval of Judge
Barrett. On and on and on. The dems have never been able to keep up. Trump outworks any 10 dems.

Oh yea, BLM Is a gift to Trump. If I were him, I would let the rioting continue until Nov 4 and then I would disperse 10,000 nat guard . Who cares what the dem govs and mayors think. Let the riots continue.

WOULD someone from Oregon mention that the city of Portland is DESTROYED BY VIOLENCE from “BLM’ protesters? -and the proliferation of CORONA virus among crowds of protesters was not a surprise? Medical experts predicted this. Oregon is a Liberal state. but its become a “Yuppie-newbie” state because thousands of L.A. and NYC people have invaded the O.MAYBE they won’t like our monster-summer-forest fires,and choking red skies. Hah HAH–and maybe our famous “low income-low pay” job economy.OREGON WAS MOSTLY POOR PEOPLE–except our politicians.
