Support for former President Donald Trump among Black men in swing states has more than doubled. 


According to a poll published on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, Trump’s support among Black men has increased in battleground states ahead of the 2024 election by more than double the support he had among the same demographic in the 2020 election.

The recent poll estimated that 30% of Black men in seven swing states, which include -Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – “definitely or probably” plan to vote for Trump in the upcoming election. 

This percentage is an 18% increase from his nationwide performance among that demographic in 2020.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that his support among Black women also increased to 11% from the 6% that it was in 2020.

From 8% in 2020 to 18% now, Trump’s support among Black voters with college degrees climbed by ten percentage points, while support among those without saw a rise of 12 percentage points to 21%.

“[President Joe] Biden is further off than where we have seen Democrats in the past,” said Michael Bocian, one of the pollsters who conducted the survey for the Journal. “I think winning back more Black men is going to be key for him.”

According to RealClearPolitics, Trump leads Biden by 0.2 percentage points on average across the country. Trump’s lead rises to 1.9 percentage points on average when third-party candidates like Jill Stein of the Green Party, Cornel West, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. are taken into consideration.

Politico reports that among young voters that range from 18 to 35 years old, Trump leads Biden in the polls. This represents a significant change from the previous election, where Biden won this voting demographic.

The survey, which questioned between 218 and 354 registered voters, was carried out between March 17th and 24th, 2024. 

The percentage points that made up the margin of error varied from 5.2 to 6.6.
