(PartiallyPolitics.com) – The Biden campaign defended President Biden’s decrease in Black voter support by claiming that his administration had done the most in support of the African American community.
During an interview the Biden campaign principal deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks was asked by ABC “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz about the drop in support from Black voters. In response, Fulks argued that many people were feeling a sense of urgency due to the threat of the GOP. He added that this was the exact reason that the vice president and president were running for reelection to ensure that this would not occur.
Specifically regarding African American voters, he argued that he wanted to make it clear that there had never been an administration that had done quite so much about the African American community as President Biden and Vice President Harris had done.
Fulks cited the increase in the Black wealth gap as an indication that the racial wealth gap was currently at the lowest level it had been in “recorded history.”
In recent months several polls have shown that Biden is currently struggling with Black voters. A recent November poll by Siena College and The New York Times found that around 22 percent of voters in six battleground states had expressed support for former president Donald Trump in the 2024 election. However, 71 percent said that they were going to be supporting Trump. Among this community, Trump has received the highest percentage of any Republican presidential candidate in a half-century.
