When you are accustomed to getting over 90% of the vote from a racial group, you really have nowhere else to go but down.
“Joe Biden’s poll numbers aren’t what they used to be. Since last June, approval of the president has fallen by more than ten points, while disapproval has risen by roughly the same amount.
Although Biden has lost ground with most every demographic group, he’s suffered especially steep losses with African American voters. …
There are other explanations for Biden’s difficulties with Black voters that have stronger empirical support. Chief among these is the unpopularity of his vaccine-mandate policy with a small but significant minority of Black Democrats. …
But because Black voters are overwhelmingly concentrated within the Democratic Party — and therefore not politically sorted by their attitudes toward meritocratic expertise, collective responsibility, or trust in government to the same extent that white voters are — a small minority of Black Democrats are vaccine skeptics. And Biden’s mandate appears to have alienated much of this contingent.
Another issue that makes itself felt to Black voters, whether or not they pay attention to goings-on in D.C., is inflation. For months now, polls have indicated that rising prices are a top concern for the electorate as a whole, and that voters overwhelmingly disapprove of Biden’s handling of the matter. …”
It has been obvious for a while now that PMCs have been having a harder time manipulating the black vote. The same is true of browbeating Whites into submission with guilt tripping about “racism” and “anti-Semitism.” BLM was part of their effort to shore up the black vote at the margins.
If you are under the age of 45, you don’t remember World War II or Jim Crow. You grew up with the internet. Nosfetatu was on MSNBC the other day whining about this “virus of ignorance.” He cited a recent poll from 2020 that showed over half of Americans were unaware that 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. How many blacks in 2020 have ever heard of Bull Connor?
As the oldest generation of blacks dies out, the Democratic margin with the black vote is going to come down. Dump was able to peel off some young black men in 2020.
