HIT Strategies’ latest BlackTrack research examined President Biden’s approval rating amongst Black voters and their views about whether a Black woman Supreme Court nominee would get a fair hearing. The survey was conducted before the official nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
President Biden’s approval rating saw a slight increase for the first time in months, going from 73% in January to 76% in February.
When asked about the forthcoming Black woman SCOTUS nominee, many Black voters stated they did not trust the GOP to conduct a fair hearing. More than half of Black voters also expressed that an unfair confirmation process would make them more likely to vote in 2022.
