According to W. Mondale Robinson, founder of the Black Male Voter Project, frustration is at an “all-time high” in the black community regarding Biden’s presidency.
The Black Male Voter Project claims to have reached more than 1.2 million black men in Georgia during the 2020 general election and the Georgia runoffs for U.S. Senate.
“I think the frustration is at an all-time high, and Biden can’t go to Georgia or any other black state in the South and say, ‘This is what we delivered in 2021,’” said Robinson in an interview with The Washington Post. “Black men are pissed off about the nothingness that has happened.”
“Does it make the work harder? It makes the work damn near impossible,” he added later.
According to the article, there are numerous factors behind this growing frustration, including the willingness of Democrats in May to “significantly weaken a policing-reform bill to get Republican support,” and Biden’s decision not to “push for changes to the filibuster to enact a $15 minimum wage,” or to “halt a raft of voting restrictions passed by Georgia’s GOP-led legislature.”
According to the latest polls, Biden’s approval rating has declined to just 44.5%, with 49.2% disapproving of Biden’s performance as president. And based on Pew Research Center data, Biden’s popularity has fallen across all racial groups in just the past few months. For example, Biden’s approval rating was 85% among black voters in July, and it dropped to 67% by September. 30% of black voters disapprove of Biden’s performance as president. – READ MORE
