Analyst Harry Enten, who has been tracking Trump’s rising support among the black community, noted it has now reached a historic level in the modern era for a Republican presidential contender, adding that the voting bloc will prove crucial to winning battleground states like Georgia and Wisconsin.

A recent New York Times/Siena College poll conducted in May found that Trump has considerably narrowed his gap with President Joe Biden among black Americans in six battleground states, with Biden leading Trump 70% to 18%. Enten expressed surprise on “CNN News Central” about Trump’s performance among black voters as a Republican candidate and noted Biden’s growing unpopularity with the demographic.

“I keep looking for this to change, to go back to a historical norm, and it, simply put, has not yet,” Enten told host John Berman to begin the segment. “So this is the margin, or, Biden and Trump among black voters, compare where we were at this point in 2020, compare to where we are now.
