With the midterms less than a month away, new polling shows black voters are swinging toward the Republican Party in historical numbers as the economy and inflation continue to be top election issues.
Among black voters, 52% believe the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction, and 18% say they will vote for the Republican candidate if the election were held today, according to the New York Times/ Siena Poll.
If those numbers are true and they hold, Democrats are done! 18%? THAT would be catastrophic for Democrats. And this along with losing the majority of Hispanics!
We need to understand the cultural shift, here. And indeed, younger Black voters are FAR more likely to vote Republican than the older cohorts. And just the fact that Black people know family members who voted Republican is a HUGE deal.
Plus, once one votes Republican, it is far easier to do so again.
