A growing number of black voters are now opposing President Joe Biden after his growing vaccine mandates, according to a Monday Morning Consult poll.
“Since Morning Consult Political Intelligence surveys conducted immediately before Biden’s Sept. 9 mandate announcement, the president’s net approval rating – the share who approve of his job performance minus the share who disapprove – has fallen 12 percentage points among Black voters, driven by a 17-point drop among unvaccinated Black voters,” Morning Consult reported.

“The rise in negative views came almost entirely from unvaccinated Black voters: 38 percent of Black voters who say they have not received their vaccine disapprove of Biden’s job performance, up 11 points since before he announced the mandate, while 56 percent approve, down 6 points over that time frame,” the report added.
The growing opposition to vaccine mandates occurs as Biden has increased both his scorn for the unvaccinated as well as regulations.
The latest move has led to widespread opposition, especially among Republican governors, as two dozen states have sent communications to oppose the new vaccine mandate push.
Among those in opposition, Georgia’s Brian Kemp and South Dakota’s Kristi Noem have both announced plans to file lawsuits regarding the matter.
The battle is far from over regarding vaccine mandates. However, Biden’s popularity among black voters could be, as the latest poll now reveals.
