BlackTrack – July 2022

The July BlackTrack Report highlights the survey’s top tracking questions related to President Biden’s administration, Congressional Democrats’, and SCOTUS job approval and abortion access. In the July survey, SCOTUS approval numbers dropped significantly, following the decisions on Roe v. Wade and gun violence. President Biden’s and Congressional Democrats’ approval slightly increased since the previous poll.

BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The July BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between June 23-29, 2022, with a margin of error of .+/- 3.1% 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.
