So for what reasons do we think Pete is getting ZERO percent of the black vote?



He is an Ivy League elitist who did lots of gentrification-type projects in South Bend that screwed minorities.

We shouldn’t discount the earlier comment that homophobia is still deeply engrained within the black electorate. That’s not a stereotype. That’s validated by exit polling results on gay marriage ban amendments. Though most of those were 10+ years ago now, and public opinion has shifted significantly in that time.

I hadn't checked for data in a while, but the Pew Center actually published something about same-sex marriage yesterday. Go figure.

Results:

Overall Public Opinion
Quote:
Support for same-sex marriage has steadily grown over the past 15 years. And today, support for same-sex marriage remains near its highest point since Pew Research Center began polling on this issue. Based on polling in 2019, a majority of Americans (61%) support same-sex marriage, while 31% oppose it.

Political Party Identification
Quote:
Support for same-sex marriage now stands at 88% among self-described liberal Democrats and Democratic leaners and 64% among conservative and moderate Democrats. Fewer conservative Republicans and Republican leaners (36%) support same-sex marriage than moderate and liberal Republicans (59%).

Religious Affiliation
Quote:
Among people who are religiously unaffiliated, a solid majority have supported same-sex marriage since 2004. Today, 79% of religious “nones” say same-sex couples should be allowed to marry.

About two-thirds of white mainline Protestants (66%) now support same-sex marriage, as do a similar share of Catholics (61%).

Support for same-sex marriage among white evangelical Protestants remains lower than it is among other religious groups. However, the share of white evangelical Protestants who support same-sex marriage has grown from 11% in 2004 to 29% today.

Gender, Race/Ethnicity and Age
Quote:
Support for same-sex marriage has remained largely stable among both men and women since 2017. Today, 66% of women and 57% of men support same-sex marriage.

Support for same-sex marriage also has remained steady among whites, blacks and Hispanics over the past two years. Today, 62% of whites support same-sex marriage, as do 58% of Hispanics and 51% of blacks.

The increase in the share of adults who favor same-sex marriage over the past 15 years is due in part to generational change. Younger generations express higher levels of support for same-sex marriage.

Support among blacks has gone from 21% in 2004 to 51% today, so although it lags support among whites and hispanics, it's not as far off as I imagined.

I was wondering this earlier, what about pairing up with VP pick now. Probably need to have some prez candidates agree to drop. Not sure if its allowed officially, though how could they stop unofficial? Yeah, VP is no big deal. candidates with some weak spots in demographic appeal though could shore it up with a running mate.

Plus he still isn't well-known despite his recent publicity, many will want to be specifically courted, and they will be hesistant to waste precious resources on a quixotic candidacy.

It is good to see, but it definitely remains an issue.

That’s like if you just introduced the concept of memes to someone and asked them to make one up.
