"Poll question: Do you think Trump has more or less black support than in 2016?"
Do you think he can go from 8% in 2016 to 12% support in the 2020 election? This article poses Trump's strategy for "the blacks" as crucial towards his re-election. But as the article suggests, the strategy is probably more about suppressing black voters rather than turning them out.
"Florida is a case study in how a small shift in the black vote can make a big difference in a key battleground. According to exit polls, black voters made up 14 percent of the electorate in Florida in 2016, and Trump won just 8 percent of them. Had Trump received 12 percent, it would have netted him more than 50,000 votes, roughly half of his total margin of victory in the state."
Dennard, who worked in the George W. Bush White House and at the Republican National Committee, said Trump is courting African Americans far more aggressively than previous Republican presidential candidates did.

Trump is branded as being really good for the working man and really bad for the man dependent on social services. I think regla schmegla black men are the strongest supporters. Black men do not really benefit from Fed social services other than Obamacare/medicare/disability.
Prisoners- There is so much being done on letting prisoners out and getting them jobs, than ever before in history. These are mainly black men.
Veterans have gotten crazy pay raises, first dibs on Fed and biz jobs and billions of dollars in investments, many vets are black men.
Opportunity Zones exist in largely low income and poor black neighborhoods with big businesses offering low skilled jobs whose recipients are mostly black men.
The STEM shift is impacting every sector of our economy and many black people were not a part of the rise happening during the Obama years. Companies are almost now obligated to interview black from HBCU programs.
Trump represents an ideology that you can do it without government services.
