Rapper 50 Cent, Congressional Republicans Say Black and Hispanic Voters Leaning Towards Trump

WASHINGTON— With a recent  Pew Research poll showing that President Joe Biden's support has slipped among Black voters, Congressional Republicans, including Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, and Rapper 50 Cent, continue to assert that Hispanic and Black communities across the nation are leaning to vote for former President Donald Trump.

The latest poll shows that in comparison to the 2020 and 2016 presidential elections, Biden’s support for Black voters has fallen significantly.

When asked by a reporter if he thought Black men would support President Trump, Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, who says he has not decided if he would vote for Trump, said that Black men can relate to Trump.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio told The Floridian that he believes President Trump will outperform any past Republican presidential nominee within the Hispanic and African-American minority communities.

“More than ever before. I think he’s going to perform better than he has, than any Republican has in history with both Hispanics and African-American voters,” said Sen. Rubio.

Sen. Rubio’s fellow Florida Senator, Sen. Rick Scott, echoed that sentiment, saying that Americans as a whole, have realized how much of a “disaster” the country is in.

“Everybody realizes the Biden administration is a disaster. Full-time jobs are going down, part-time jobs are going up. He’s the “High Price President.” Prices keep going up, our Border is open, crimes up, and foreign policy is an absolute disaster—all voters are moving towards Trump,” said Sen. Scott.

While agreeing that Black and Hispanic voters appear to support Trump, Sen. Scott believes that the American electorate is not going to vote “based on race.”

“People aren’t voting based on race, they are voting based on their intellect,” added Sen. Scott

Senator Cruz told Texas Politics that he has seen a shift in Texas and around the country toward Republicans by both the Hispanic and Black communities.

“We are seeing that happen in Texas and across the country. Both African-American and Hispanic voters are moving strongly toward Republicans because the Biden agenda has done enormous damage to those communities,” said Sen. Cruz..

House Republicans agree with their Senate colleagues.

Reps. Byron Donalds and Wesley Hunt, both African-American, believe former President Trump will make great strides among Black voters this election cycle.

Black voters are in play for Trump according to Reps. Donalds and Hunt.

We’re going to places where minority and black brothers are,” said Rep. Hunt in an interview with Texas Politics.

“If President Trump gets between 25% and 30% of the black male vote, Democrats can’t win. In 2020, he got 18.7% of the black male vote. He has 7% to go. If we can get him there this time, it’s over," added Hunt.

To counter the apparent slip in the polls among Black voters, the Biden administration has launched a new strategy to win back disenfranchised minority voters.

Trump is not expected to win the overall minority vote, but any significant shift, even a 3-6% swing, could move the needle enough to help former President win reelection in November.
