BlackTrack – January 2022

The January BlackTrack Report highlights the survey’s top tracking questions related to President Biden’s Administation and Congressional Democrats’ job approval and performance. In the December survey, President Joe Biden’s job performance approval numbers continued to decline among Black voters, including now older Black voters, a traditionally stalwart constituency.

BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The January BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between December 4-8, 2021, 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.
