African-American voters should give Donald Trump a chance, because Hillary Clinton's extension of President Barack Obama's policies would continue to get them nowhere, Bruce LeVell, a conservative community leader in Georgia, told CNBC on Thursday from Atlanta.
"What do we have to lose. If we [Republicans] don't do a good job, get us out in four years. Give us a shot," said LeVell, executive director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. While the group is not affiliated with the Trump campaign, LeVell said he's working to get the GOP presidential nominee elected.
Responding to critics who accuse Trump of being racist, LeVell said he disagrees, claiming he's never heard Trump make any derogatory comments about African-Americans.
In a continuation of his recent outreach to African-American voters, Trump on Wednesday in the battleground state of North Carolina unveiled what he called the "new deal for Black America," based on three principles: safe communities, great education and higher-paying jobs.
Clinton leads Trump by 2 percentage points in North Carolina, according to the Real Clear Politics average of major statewide polls. But in the battleground state of Georgia, Trump leads Clinton by 3.3 percentage points.
On Election Day, LeVell predicted Georgia won't be a battle, because he expects Trump to win the state in a blowout over the Democratic nominee Clinton, with strong support from black voters. "There's a huge silent majority of African-Americans who are going to vote for Donald Trump."
Nationally, the RCP polling average puts Trump's African-American support at just 5.6 percent and Clinton's at 84 percent. The race among all likely voters favors Clinton by 5.4 percentage points, according to the RCP average.
Brunell Donald-Kyei, vice chair of diversity outreach for Trump, told FOX on Wednesday the campaign expects between 16 and 25 percent support among black voters.
But history is not on Trump's side. In 2012, Obama got 93 percent of the black vote, while GOP challenger Mitt Romney got 6 percent, according to exit polls, which mirrored a similar split in 2008 between Obama and John McCain.
