BlackTrack – November 2021

The results of the November BlackTrack underscore the economic hardship many Black voters face and offer insight into Biden’s declining approval numbers among Black voters. Over the summer, President Biden’s high approval among all voters was driven by super-high approval among Black voters. Economic anxiety and frustration among Black Voters are among the potential causes of Biden’s and Democrats’ sagging approval numbers among Black voters.

BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The November BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between October 22-27, 2021, 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.
