Luongo: Trump Crosses The Black Chasm, Ends Democrats | Zero Hedge

The First Black President
So, what does all this 16% Chasm stuff have to do with Donald Trump?

After all, he crossed the chasm and won the presidency.

But the chasm Trump needed to cross was a demographic one.  Minorities, specifically black voters. And because he did, nothing about our electoral politics will ever be the same.

Rasmussen released a bombshell report on Friday stating that Trump’s support among black voters is now a whopping 36%.

This versus 19% a year ago.

Now, Rasmussen skews Republican in his sampling like Gallup skews Democrat, so lop 3-5% off both of those numbers, the margin of error.  Go back to Trump’s polling with black voters just a few months ago and you’ll see numbers in the 17% range.

Today 36%.  That, my friends, is crossing the chasm in a big way.

And it’s typical.  Italy’s Northern League ‘crossed the chasm’ in January and doubled support in six months.

So, now the question is what caused this?  What changed?
