    This is just the very tip of the iceberg. I fully expect truth to drown under an absolute tsunami of ai-generated bullshit this election

    These people have such a low opinion of black people that they honestly think a few pictures of Trump with black people and sneakers will win him the black vote. Nah fam. The black community isn’t happy with Biden but it’ll be a cold day in hell before they vote for Trump

    A recent New York Times and Sienna College poll found that in six key swing states 71% of black voters would back Mr Biden in 2024, a steep drop from the 92% nationally that helped him win the White House at the last election.

    I never heard that so many black people supported (and still support) Trump.

    Somewhere else I see this sentence, which sounds a lot more plausible to me:

    There’s little evidence that Trump is making significant inroads with Black voters, who polls show remain overwhelmingly supportive of President Joe Biden.

    Can someone unconfuse me please?

      The entire polling industry is dead, and at this point exists solely to produce polls that get people to care what polling says. The kind of person who bothers to respond to a poll is no longer related to the general sentiment of voters at all. Trump has consistently underperformed by around 10% compared to what polling has said, and it this point it appears to be because pollsters really just want to sell you on keeping your eyes on polling data, it’s actually totally gonna be closer than you’d think!!!

      2016 killed polling, everyone who bothers to respond lies, and most people just don’t respond. There is so little to be gained from looking at polling data that you might as well ignore it.

        I get calls pretty often asking my opinion and never offer

        1. because I am busy

        2. Because I don’t know what they will do with that information.

        The first thing to remember is that everyone responding AGREED to take take 10+ minutes out of their time to be on the phone and answer a bunch of questions about politics to a complete stranger.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    A recent New York Times and Sienna College poll found that in six key swing states 71% of black voters would back Mr Biden in 2024, a steep drop from the 92% nationally that helped him win the White House at the last election.

    On Monday, MAGA Inc, the main political action committee backing Trump, is due to launch an advertising campaign targeting black voters in Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

    Justin Webb and Marianna Spring travel from the frozen plains of Iowa to the swing state of Georgia to explore Donald Trump’s enduring appeal and look ahead to an unprecedented American election year.

    In 2020, the focus was on home-grown disinformation - particularly false narratives that the presidential election was stolen, which were shared widely by US-based social media users and endorsed by Mr Trump and other Republican politicians.

    All of the major social media companies have policies in place to tackle potential influence operations, and several - like Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram - have introduced new measures to deal with AI-generated content during elections.

    Narratives about the 2020 election being stolen - which were shared without any evidence - spread online with simple posts, memes and algorithms, not AI-generated images or video, and still resulted in the US Capitol riot on 6 January.
