Al Sharpton Hits Panic Alarm over Black Voters Ditching Democrats

MSNBC’s Al Sharpton pushed the panic button on Monday over black voters ditching Democrats, warning the Biden Administration to take it more seriously.

The massive lack of enthusiasm among black voters, specifically young minority voters for the Biden Administration has become more apparent in the wake of indictments against Donald Trump.

“How do you see it, and what do you see can be the remedy?” MSNBC’s Jonathan Lemire asked Al Sharpton.

“I think that the fact that there is a lack of enthusiasm among young voters, particularly young black voters, the Biden campaign needs to take seriously because you need to really build a ground game movement from the bottom-up, rather than just poo-poo it and be in denial,” Sharpton said.

“I was a big boxing fan, Joe and I talk about that all the time,” he said.

“The best fighters, the best champions fight when they feel they’re behind and a good trainer in your corner will tell you you’re behind even if you’re winning the round because they want you not to relax,” Al Sharpton added.

“They should not relax. They ought to be out there saying, ‘our Justice Department has prosecuted more federal civil rights cases of young blacks that were victims than any Justice Department’,” Sharpton continued.

“They need to be saying that to young voters, they need to be saying that to black voters, saying, ‘You compare our record and ask what did the Justice Department do in cases like this with Donald Trump?’”


Trump received 22% of support amongst black voters, according to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll.

The poll figures mark a massive increase from the less than 10% Trump received in the 2020 election.

The polls show the highest share of black votes for a republican candidate since then-Vice President Richard Nixon won 32% in 1960.

Earlier this month, CNN hosts were shocked at polls showing massive black support for Trump.

“Twenty-two percent of black voters behind Trump,” NN’s Harlow said in response to the survey.

“That is not seen in the modern era for a Republican frontrunner, right?”

“It’s startling,” added CNN analyst Natasha Alford.

“I looked at the Democratic response, Kevin Munoz, the spokesman for Biden, and this idea that, you know, we have a year. We can turn things around.”

“I think you have to look at this being a challenge from the very beginning, right?” she continued.


As we reported in August, Trump notably gained more support from the black community following news of his arrest at the Fulton County jail and the release of his now iconic mug shot.

Stephen Miller hit the nail on the head:

“At least, foreign despotic regimes pretend the people they are jailing are guilty of spying, that they’re agents of a foreign country.”

“Now, here in America, we’re jailing people for speech we don’t like.”

“We’re imprisoning people for asking them to lobby a state legislature or watch a particular TV program.”
