BlackTrack – March 2022

The March BlackTrack Report highlights the BlackTrack survey’s top tracking questions on President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ job performance approval and expectations for upcoming hearings on the first black woman U.S. Supreme Court nominee. In the February survey, President Biden and Democrats’ job performance approval numbers remained steady among Black voters, retaining a supermajority in approval of job performance. 

BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The March BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between February 19-24, 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.
