Open-minded blacks

According to a Reuters-Ipsos poll asking likely voters if they've decided who they're going to vote for or if they could still be persuaded to change their minds, the percentage of blacks who say they could change their minds is 12.8% (n = 532). Among non-blacks, it's 23.4% (n = 5,289).

White identity has some catching up to do (of course).

I don't buy it. Among "likely voters" minds are made up. Only "unlikely voters" matter. These people, especially the age 30+ population, are tuned in to news sources other than "social media": local and cable television, radio, newspapers, and digital news (Google). These sources pound Trump 24/7/365. I can't help but think these people have been negatively effected by the storm. Will 25-50% of "unlikely voters" vote for Trump? I don't know. I'm not optimistic. No doubt many of them think it's not worth their time. Trump could have ameliorated this by having ground game. It's too late for that. IMO we should hope for the best but prepare for the worst!
