BlackTrack – October 2021
The October BlackTrack Report highlights the survey’s top tracking questions related to President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ performance. The survey detected increasing malaise and disapproval toward Biden and Democrats. For example, in October, 56% of respondents said they felt that the Democratic Party takes Black voters for granted, a 14% jump from the June BlackTrack survey. Also, 25% of participants disapproved of Congressional Democrats’ job performance, more than double the proportion who said the same in June.
BlackTrack is a monthly subscription-based survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters. The October BlackTrack was conducted via an online, double opt-in panel between October 8-13, 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.
