Black voters display diminishing support for Hillary Clinton


Black voters display diminishing support for the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Early voting in battleground states, including North Carolina and Florida, show a 14 percent decrease in turnout in early voting among black voters. Two million voters, including many young and older African Americans, do not vote for the Democratic Party nominee in the general election despite strong appeals by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for Clinton, with black voter turnout for the Democratic Party in 2016 dropping five percentage points from 2012.
