The toxic combination of Biden’s policies on the economy and crime is driving black and Latino voters away from the Democrat base.
This could have an explosive effect on the party’s chances in the 2022 and 2024 elections.
Democrats rely on a coalition of voters from various minority groups, but especially these two.

Biden on verge of losing Hispanic-black base
President Joe Biden’s speedy descent into Carter-era disapproval over inflation, immigration, and foreign policy is threatening to break up the Democratic Party’s ruling base of voters, according to new polling.
Starting under former President Donald Trump, the trickle of blue-collar, Hispanic, and black voters away from the liberals is starting to gush, giving Republicans a good chance to win both houses of Congress and potentially lock in their own ruling majority.
“Most distressing for Democrats is that Joe Biden’s ratings are eroding in his political base creating a path for Republicans to maximize their base, win the center and attract Democratic voters,” said pollsters Jim and John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates.
Asked to review their recent polling for Secrets, John McLaughlin pointed to data showing that Biden is losing his own personal base that gave him his 2020 victory over Trump.
“Biden only gets 82% of his 2020 vote, only 84% among Democrats,” he said.
The base, he said, is upset with their president. McLaughlin said: “25% of Biden 2020 voters disapprove of his job and Biden’s disapproval is 27% among liberals, 19% among Democrats, 25% among African Americans, 40% among urban voters, 57% among women, 61% among suburban voters, 61% among Hispanics.”
He added, “The 2020 Biden coalition is totally destroyed.”
This should be setting off alarm bells at the Biden White House.
