The leftist-media won’t cover this! A new Rasmussen poll finds that a third of black voters say Biden’s announcement of Kamala Harris as his running mate makes them LESS LIKELY to vote the Democrat ticket this year.
Sleepy Joe Biden finally announced Kamala as his running mate on Tuesday. Tulsi Gabbard quickly destroyed Kamala Harris’s record as a prosecutor who put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.
According to Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”
Recent comments from the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate have also not sat well with black voters. Last Thursday, Biden tweeted, “Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all.”

From Rasmussen Reports:
Earlier this week, Joe Biden named Kamala Harris as his running mate. Democrats overwhelmingly like the California senator and have their eye on her to hold the top spot in 2024 if the Democratic ticket loses this time around. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Likely Democratic Voters have a favorable impression of Harris, including 48% who have a Very Favorable impression. Just 18% of Democrats have an unfavorable view of California’s former attorney general, with 11% who say Very Unfavorable.
Twenty-four percent (24%) of all voters say Biden’s VP choice will make them more likely to vote for the Democratic ticket in November. Just as many (24%) say it will make them less likely to vote for Biden now that Harris is by his side. Half (50%) say this week’s announcement will have no impact when it comes to their vote.
But while black voters (37%) are more likely than white voters (28%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (25%) to hold a Very Favorable opinion of Harris, who would be the first woman of color to hold the office of vice president if elected, a third of black voters say Biden’s VP announcement makes them less likely to vote for Democratic ticket in November.
Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen Poll shows 36% of black American likely voters approve of the job President Trump is doing.

As president, Trump has touted economic numbers in the black community, especially highlighting low unemployment numbers. Before the Coronavirus pandemic, the White House released numbers in November 2019, showing black unemployment at a record low of 5.4%. In November 2019, the Trump campaign launched the Black Voices for Trump program, which focused on increasing black turnout in the 2020 election.
