E-Blast: Black Voters Approve of New Representation on SCOTUS and Inflation is Now the Top Concern



Black Voters Approve of New Representation on SCOTUS and Inflation is Now the Top Concern

In HIT Strategies’ latest BlackTrack, a monthly survey of Black voters, President Biden’s job performance remained steady, with Congressional Democrats’ and the Supreme Court’s approval increasing since last month. The increase in approval of the Supreme Court indicates the newfound audience of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation as the first Black woman appointed as an associate justice on the Supreme Court.

Inflation has surpassed issues related to COVID-19 as the most pressing concern amongst Black voters. While Black voters credit the Biden administration in guiding the country through the pandemic, the administration must now communicate their achievements and convey what the presidency has left to accomplish. 

President Biden’s Job Performance
Biden’s approval rating among all groups of Black voters remains steady, registering at 74% this month. 
Congressional Democrats’ Job Performance 
Black voters’ approval rating of Congressional Democrats has begun to increase, showing a steady rise in support since January. 
Supreme Court 
Support for the Supreme Court has increased from 55% to 63% this month, marking the highest approval rating of the court amongst Black voters since BlackTrack started surveying the question. 
The proportion of Black voters likely to vote in the midterms has remained steady since December of last year. 
Black voters reported economic and racial issues as the most pertinent, with inflation being their top concern. 
COVID-19 economic recovery, spread of COVID-19, and inflation were stated as the issues President Biden has been focused on the past month. 
Overall, Black voters’ perception of President Biden’s handling of Black people’s needs remains steady. 
BlackTrack is a monthly survey by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black voters.
