REPORT: Democrats At Risk Of Losing Dissatisfied Black Voters In 2022 Midterms

Democrats may be in trouble with one of their most reliable voting blocs.

Black Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with what Democrats have delivered while they’ve been in control in recent years.

This does not mean that Republicans will automatically gain these votes, even though they could potentially take some of them.

What it does mean is that black voters could stay home on election day and that would hurt Democrats.

It will be a Republican-leaning electorate this midterm season, so I’m not sure Democrats will take these criticisms seriously, though they do so at their peril. It might be too late to accommodate the grievances filed by black voter activist groups.

The Democrats have a lot hanging around their necks. High gas prices, an economic recession, and inflation are some of the major ones, along with the elephant in the room, which is that Joe Biden is an appalling leader of their party. This year is a wash, but Democratic operatives might be more receptive to tweaking the message for a presidential year.

The main criticism from black voter groups is that Democrats aren’t playing to their issues and needs.

Here’s more from The Hill:

As the U.S. grapples with the possibility of a recession and social upheaval following controversial Supreme Court rulings, growing Black voter dissatisfaction could have an outsized impact on the party in an election year where the scales already feel tipped toward the GOP.

“When we look at the challenges that this country is facing, from health care, to housing, to safety, these things are disproportionately impacting communities of color and Black communities specifically,” said Alicia Garza, principal of the Black to the Future Action Fund, an organization dedicated to building “black political power in cities and states,” according to the website.

But instead of addressing these issues on the ground in Black communities, Garza argued, Democrats have been focused on regaining white suburban voters, particularly white women.

This is increasingly problematic when Black families are still reeling from the disproportionate economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, she added.

A recent poll from the Black to the Future Action Fund showed economic recovery among Black Americans’ top concerns, as Black renters and mortgage holders found themselves behind on payments and concerns of food and housing security soared..

The numbers could serve as a warning to Democrats, who were bolstered in 2020 by Black voters, a demographic that has remained overwhelmingly loyal to the party. Adding to their concerns is a renewed effort by Republicans to court Black — as well as Hispanic and Asian — voters ahead of the midterms.

Losing just a percentage of black voters could be devastating for Democrats.

It’ll be fascinating to see if that actually happens.
