As Mark Twain said there are lies, damned lies, and statistics, and you are well within bounds to challenge exit polling data, especially when it's within the margin of error.  I think it's safe to say Trump did do better with black people in 2020 than 2016, but I'm not sure how his performance compares with Bush 2004.  The easiest way to answer this would be to look at the data in historically black areas and compare the results.  Someone with a paid membership on Atlas could help here.  Cheesy

He got 12% compared to the 11% black support that George Bush got in 2004 marking the highest since the Gerald Ford presidency. Did he actually get it ?
Why did blacks vote for GERALD FORD?!

Residual support from the early-mid 20th century.  A lot of southern Dems were still associated with segregationist politics.  Plus he was certainly more appealing than Goldwater or Nixon.

(Carter still won the black vote by a huge amount)
