(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Friday a CNN report found that in Milwaukee Black voters were not feeling inspired or motivated to vote for President Biden in the 2024 presidential election.
Yoga studio owner in Glendale, Joanna Brooks stated that the Democratic Party believes that the support of Black people is granted. However, she noted that despite the loyalty of that demographic to the Democratic party she wonders whether based on the party’s performance they should continue to have the support of Black people.
Eric Jones, a different voter, argued that he had heard from some people that they were not planning on voting at all. He added that this was his biggest fear, that people would see that the two candidates were former President Donald Trump and President Biden and decide not to vote as they “damned anyways.” As he pointed out, when many of the manufacturing and factories left the state, there was also a big loss of opportunities and jobs, which created a domino effect.
Jones added that for a candidate to be popular all they had to do was bring more votes and opportunities.
Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC) canvasser Devonta Johnson was asked about the presidential race and whether he would choose Biden or Trump. As he argued, this was a “tough” choice.
Angela Lang, the executive director of BLOC noted that it was impossible for a statewide election to be won without the Black community. This means that the outcome in Milwaukee could have an impact on the entire state and even the country.
