Since their November 8th Midterm election Senate race, the polling data between (R) Herschel Walker and (D) Raphael Warnock have maintained a razor-thin margin. Black voters have become a point of intense discussion in this race due to the unusual nature of this Senate runoff race in Georgia – both candidates are Black and deviate heavily in their political stances.

Currently, Real Clear Politics is considering this race to still be considered a toss up. Their polling average has Walker up a total of 1.4 points, however, this will be largely based around if Libertarians come out to vote for Walker or not. One area of hope for Walker is the fact that the December 6th run-off election was sparked due to over 80,000 votes for the Libertarian party candidate, Chase Oliver, who received over 2% of the total vote on November 8th. Oliver will not be on the ticket for the run-off election, and Libertarians have a tendency to fall in line closer to Republicans than they do Democrats.

Democrats have traditionally taken Black voters for granted, and while Democrats can regularly get over 85% of the Black vote in any given election, their optics on the situation regarding Black votes can be considered suspect. Often, Democrats can make statements that appear to be expecting the Black vote, bringing in the racial identity of Black Americans and using it as leverage to prop up the Democratic party as the only option for Black Americans. During the 2020 Presidental election, then Presidental candidate Joe Biden infamously told Charlamagne Tha God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t black.”

According to AP VoteCast, which surveyed over 3,200 voters in the state, showed that Warnock won 90% of Black voters, while Walker managed to get 68% of White voters during their November 8th election.

Similarly, Bryce Berry, president of Georgia’s Young Democrats chapter and a senior at Morehouse College said, “Republicans seem to have thought they could put up Herschel Walker and confuse Black folks,” adding, “We are not confused.” Berry, president of Georgia’s Young Democrats, is barely an unbiased party, and would’ve likely supported Warnock simply due to his political affiliation either way. However, there’s nothing pointing to Herschel Walker and Republicans attempting to “confuse Black folks,” a sentiment like this emulates that Democratic voters believe they know best for Black voters.


  1. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result! Black voters have been voting for Dem’s for 100 years and are in the same boat now that they were in in 1900. When they learn to vote for the ones that really have their interests at heart instead of the ones that just say they do, things can change.

  2. Black folks are not confused. Those who continue voting DemoCreep have decided that they want to live on the Government Plantation.

  3. The demonocrats are such good liars that the black people believe them when they lie and talk about how they are for the little guy. It is a generational thing where the parents pass it down from one generation to the next, so the black people really think they are doing the right thing when they vote for the demonocrat liars. Like Brandon said, You ain’t black if you don’t vote for the demonocrat.

  4. black people vote democrat-period-that is their right if they wish
    But don’t pretend this will ever change
