  • Democrats can’t win without persuading and mobilizing Black voters in November. But Democrats are scrambling to win over more Black men. Polling by The Wall Street Journal/NBC News found that about 92% of Black women support Joe Biden compared to 4% for Donald Trump, while 80% of Black men support Biden and 12% support the President. Among Black men under 50, the former Vice President’s support dropped to 70%, compared with 17% for President Trump.

    As the country grapples with persistent racial inequities laid bare by the coronavirus and police violence, we must prioritize reaching and engaging Black men on the issues that matter most to them.

    Third Way’s Akunna Cook hosts a conversation on engaging Black male voters with Golden Globe and Emmy winning actor, producer, and activist Sterling K. Brown; Former South Carolina Representative, CNN commentator, and author Bakari Sellers; and Democratic Strategist and CBS News Political Contributor Antjuan Seawright.
