Black Voters Reveal Deep Concern on Abortion Restrictions and Gun Violence. Subscribe To BlackTrack for Monthly Insight on Black Voters

We fielded the latest BlackTrack survey after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and observed significant shifts in Black voter attitudes toward the Supreme Court, abortion access, and gun violence.   
  • Following a significant increase in Supreme Court approval during Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation process, voter approval of SCOTUS justices plummeted from 63% in March to 42% this month.  

  • President Biden and Democrats’ approval ratings slightly increased since the last survey, registering at 77% and 76% amongst all Black voters. 

BlackTrack follows the socio-politico attitudes of Black voters over time and disaggregates the data into demographic groups to understand the full diversity of Black voters’ opinions. Most data from the monthly survey of 1,000 Black voters is proprietary and available for subscribers. Subscribe at  hitstrat.com/blacktrack.
