CNN revealed one fact that could mean big losses for the left.
They could be facing an even bigger defeat than they were expecting.
CNN made an admission that’s absolutely devastating for Democrats.
Democrats only have a very slim chance of keeping the House after the midterm elections of November. They are far more likely to be able to keep their slim majority in the Senate.
However, Democrats received a piece of bad news on the likelihood of them being able to hold the Senate.
CNN reported on Monday that its polling found that eroding support from black voters could cost Democrats the U.S. Senate.
The network’s senior data reporter, Harry Enten, said that the loss in black support could doom Democratic candidates in close races.
“Look, they’re still getting 74 percent support in the pre-election polling right now but compare that to the final polling for 2020 President and 2018 Congress,” he stated. “In 2020 it was 84 percent, 85 percent in 2018.”
At the same time, black support for Republicans has risen from 9% in 2018 and 2020 to 12% now.
Part of the shift may be driven by Joe Biden’s growing unpopularity. While his approval rating was at 87% between January and June 2021, it has plunged to 64%.
“That’s a huge drop,” CNN’s Brianna Keilar commented.
In battleground states such as Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Nevada a small percentage of black voters voting for Republicans could make a different outcome.
The growing black vote favored Democrats in Georgia in 2020 as FiveThirtyEight reported, “Most suburbs in Atlanta have shifted toward Democrats by 31 points or so in 20 years and have gained, on average, more than 315,000 voting-age Black Americans, far outpacing the growth of the white voting-age population by 200,000.”
In Georgia, incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock is facing a close reelection against GOP challenger Herschel Walker in which the black vote will play an important role.
In Nevada, Republican Senate candidate Adam Laxalt is leading by a razor-thin margin in the swing state against incumbent Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto so the race could be swayed by just a small difference in the black vote.
In Pennsylvania, GOP candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and Democrat John Fetterman are engaged in a closely contested race which could also be affected by the black vote.
Fetterman has recently been accused of reportedly vandalizing a sign of a local business when he was mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania. He also responded to a noise he mistakenly thought was gunfire by pulling a firearm on an unarmed African-American who was out jogging and detaining him until police arrived.
