For years, Republicans have tried to win more votes from minorities. Although there was progress between Candace Owens’ Blexit movement and Trumps’ minority outreach efforts, their efforts might not be as successful as Joe Biden’s.
We all know Joe Biden’s approval rating is low, but his approval among black voters merits special attention.
Take into account how South Carolina’s black voters saved Joe Biden’s presidential campaign after he had failed in New Hampshire and Iowa.
Biden promised South Carolina’s black voters that he would never forget their loyalty.
Biden stated, “Too often, your loyalty, commitment, and support for this party have been taken for granted. I swear to you as a Biden that I will never, ever, never do so.”
His words as a Biden have not been very convincing. 9 out of 10 South Carolina black voters endorsed the job he did in the AP/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll. Today, only 6 out of 10 approve of the job that he does.
This is a big slip.
Although black voters are becoming increasingly disillusioned in Biden’s leadership, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re not running for the GOP… at least not yet. Republicans have an opportunity to reach more black voters by gaining more approval of Biden.
Biden may be the greatest salesman the GOP has ever seen.
