GenForward Survey: Black Support for Biden Slipping

By Peter Malbin    

President Joe Biden is losing support among Black Americans, one of his strongest constituencies, who see rising prices as the most important political issue.

In the GenForward survey released Tuesday, and reported by Politico, 17% of Black Americans would vote for former President Donald Trump over Biden.

During the 2020 presidential election, AP VoteCast found that Trump won 8% of Black voters, while 92% voted for Biden.

Black women still support Biden at higher rates than Black men, noted Cathy Cohen, the founder and director of the GenForward project and a University of Chicago political science professor.
