Democrats for decades have believed they own the black vote in presidential elections. Voting results have shown the power of black voters in getting liberal candidates elected across the country. Democrats have counted on this demographic bloc to win big in urban areas and blue states.
Liberals are panicking after new polling shows that Joe Biden and fellow Democrats are vulnerable in the upcoming 2024 election. They don’t maintain a strong hold on their ((go-to/sacred)) demographic like before.
This could change the political landscape within local, state, and national elections next year. From the Daily Caller:
“The Democratic Party has been failing epically at reaching this demographic of black men — and that’s sad to say,” W. Mondale Robinson, founder of the Black Male Voter Project, told the Washington Post. “Black men are your second-most stable base overwhelmingly, and yet you can’t reach them in a way that makes your work easier.”
According to the news outlet, Democrats are increasingly worried after the 2022 midterms saw a 10% voting drop among the crucial electorate, despite the party’s victories in the Senate. Any significant losses in key battleground states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Georgia could flip these areas in favor of the GOP in 2024.
For too long Democrats have assumed they have the back vote just by fielding a candidate who can recite the party narrative. Those days appear to be gone as all sides of the political spectrum are realizing that voters in all demographics are shying away from political rhetoric and leaning into candidates who can get work done for the people.

Republicans may see the latest polling results as a sign of how results will turn out on election night next year, but they shouldn’t be too hasty in their assessment. Democrats still hold strong support from key demographics and the GOP must peel away some of that core group to win big in 2024.
From the Daily Caller:
“My guess is Democrats for the foreseeable future will continue to do well [with black voters], but I think there’s some cultural issues that don’t typically resonate with the black community as a whole and frankly a lot of minority communities,” Jay Williams, GOP strategist out of Georgia, told the Post. “It could be a real wedge issue for (Republicans).”
Election day in 2024 is like another lifetime away for both parties. Former President Donald Trump faces a variety of legal issues and President Joe Biden continues to hang on as the incumbent despite his personal gaffes and failed policies.
Republicans should not take anything for granted and keep hammering home the Biden weaknesses while delivering a new direction for every voter demographic across the country.
- New voter poll has liberals panicking over elections.
- Key demographic for Democrats shows less interest.
- GOP needs to drive a wedge between Dems and voters.
