On Thursday, CNN political commentator Van Jones admitted that life for black voters has gotten “worse” under President Joe Biden. He was speaking during a segment on CNN’s “New Day” hosted by Kaitlin Collins and John Berman.
“It got worse,” Jones said. “You’re going through a summer now of real heartbreak with black voters, the polls show that. I think Biden’s got to take that very seriously.”
He discussed how inflation has hurt many black families and made their lives worse. On top of that, the commentator says that Biden has communicated poorly with the black community and that the administration has done a poor job touting the accomplishments they have had.
“They’re doing stuff, they’re just not communicating it,” he said. “If I were the Democratic Party right now, the black community is a firewall. They need to be spending a lot of money on black radio, a lot of money in black media to just point out the fact that Joe Biden is there for the black community and is doing stuff. The particular pain is not being addressed aggressively enough.”
Jones is right. According to a CNN poll, Biden has a 43 percent disapproval rating with black voters. In March, a Marquette poll showed that his approval had dropped with all voters to 56 percent.
“It’s a big number for a Democratic president,” Jones said. “There’s is a way to overcome it.”

Many Americans are rightfully worried about inflation and how much the cost of gasoline and goods has gone up. It’s cutting into pocket books and people are barely able to afford basic necessities.
There is something dreadfully wrong with America under Biden. He has trouble forming sentences and even making sense most of the time. We are sick and tired of the media trumpeting the plans of this guy that can’t even speak for himself. Do you think that black voters will still come out to vote for Biden despite not being happy with him? Or do you think some are coming out to support Republicans?
