Monday, the Black Economic Alliance PAC (BEA PAC), a nonpartisan group of business leaders that supports candidates who prioritize improved economic conditions for Black people, released a report on the impact Black voters can have on the outcome of the 2020 election.
The report is based on results from the BEA PAC’s 2020 Black voter survey conducted by HIT Strategies and publicly available data and national exit polls focusing on battleground states like Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina. The report’s biggest takeaways indicate that Black voters have the potential to change the current political makeup of the U.S. Senate and more if they mirror or exceed the historic turnout that turned the tide in the 2008 and 2012 General Elections.
