About 80 percent of Black male voters chose Biden, according to NBC News exit polls. According to The Associated Press, 12 percent to 19 percent of Black men voted for Trump. His possible gains (he got about 13 percent in 2016) continue a slight shift in preference, among some, for Republican presidential candidates over the last several election cycles.
If the higher figure is more accurate, “Trump received more Black male votes than any Republican in modern history,” said Terrance Woodbury, a partner with HIT Strategies, which specializes in polling millennials and people of color.
