Black voters helped catapult President Joe Biden into the White House last November but Biden’s support from Black America is waning. While Biden’s approval ratings are down overall, they have dropped significantly with Black voters.
Since July, Biden’s approval rating has dropped among Democrats from 92 percent to 85 percent and among Independents who don’t lean toward either party from 62 percent to 38 percent, according to a recent AP poll. Among Black Americans, Biden’s approval rating dropped from 86 percent to 64 percent, a drop of 22 points.
His approval also dipped among both white Americans from 49 percent to 42 percent.
“Biden’s support was always misleading,” tweeted The Moguldom Nation CEO Jamarlin Martin. “Folks were ‘jacked up’ & high on CNN/MSNBC anti-MAGA.They are coming off that & becoming less tolerant of more Democratic Party scams.These leaders don’t have the CONVICTIONS to offer Black America anything, they aren’t structured to do it.”
There could be several reasons for Biden falling approval rating among Black voters. According to a new Morning Consult poll, Biden’s approval rating among unvaccinated Black voters dropped 17 points since he announced plans to implement a federal vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 people.
The mandate was part of a larger initiative by the Biden administration that includes requiring vaccinations for all federal employees, workers for federal contractors and health care workers in most institutions that receive Medicare or Medicaid, Yahoo reported.
Black Americans remain the least likely of all racial and ethnic demographics to have received a covid-19 vaccine. According to data intelligence company Morning Consult, 53 percent of Black adults have received the vaccine, a lower percentage than that of any other race or ethnicity.
Biden is still popular with most Black voters — 71 percent approve of his job performance, Morning Consult reported.

Some Black voters might be disappointed with the lack of movement on Biden’s much-touted Plan for Black America.
“What ever happened to the “Biden Plan for Black America?” Are y’all still holding Biden and Kamala accountable?” tweeted DAP/ADOS TRIBE @Black_Action.
