BlackTrack – February 2022

The February BlackTrack Report highlights the survey’s top tracking questions related to President Biden’s Administration and Congressional Democrats’ job approval and performance. In the January survey, President Biden and Democrats’ job performance approval numbers once again declined among Black voters amidst ongoing negotiations on voting rights legislation. President Biden maintains a supermajority approval in job performance by Black voters.  

BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The February BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between January 15-21, 2022, with a margin of error of +/- 3.9% at a 95% confidence level. The recurring monthly national survey of 1,000 Black voters (ages 18+) monitors current Black voters’ attitudes on social and political issues. In addition, it disaggregates the data into demographic groups to understand the full diversity of Black voters’ attitudes. A proportion of BlackTrack data is proprietary and available for subscribers.
