Black voters are turning out in huge numbers who are worried about racial injustice, police brutality, and feel devalued by a President who hesitated to condemn White supremacy.
The pandemic has killed more than 223,000 Americans and ravaged Black communities, so African American voters are rushing to the polls at much higher rate. More than 601,000 Black Americans voted early in Georgia, in Maryland, about 192,775, and California had over 303,145.
Black voters polled that 87% of Black Americans disapproved of Trump's job as President have concerns about health care, the makeup of the courts and are mistrustful. Americans have already cast a record-breaking 62 million early ballots, making 2020 historic on the level of voter turnout.
Democrats currently hold a 2-to-1 advantage in returned mail-in ballots in states with party registration and there is a surge in youth voters as people ages 18 to 29 are turning out to vote early in a big way. The numbers of young people voting early have skyrocketed, in Michigan, Florida and North Carolina.
