President Biden’s campaign is facing concerns about Black voter turnout in the general election due to criticism over insufficient support for their community.

Leaders and strategists believe that Biden and Vice President Harris may have deeper issues with the critical voting bloc, as Black voters feel a lack of excitement and believe that Biden hasn’t delivered on their issues.

Phillip Agnew, co-director of the group Black Men Build, said, “I don’t think a good showing [in South Carolina] is a signal that Black people writ large or young Black people in particular have this overwhelming level of support for Joe Biden.”

There is a sense that the administration has not made a significant impact on Black communities, leading to a decline in Biden’s approval among Black voters.

Agnew described black voters’ “deep, abiding lack of excitement” for Biden.

Former Michigan Democratic state Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo said, “If this small inquiry is a sign of a much larger trend, then he’s in trouble.”

“They feel he did what was necessary to secure the Black vote, but hasn’t delivered on Black issues,” she added.

“He brought in Kamala Harris and then basically locked her away for the last four years,” explained the Michigan Democrat.

South Carolina state Rep. J.A. Moore said he is “wondering, ‘What has the administration done?’”

“Some of that is the narrative in the media, some of that is the reality that it’s hard for people to see the impact of policy,” explained Moore.
