‘No Trust in Joe Biden’

Joe Biden

(DCWatchdog.com) – Amid the backdrop of contemporary political discourse, a group of young African American voters in Georgia told CNN they decided they would not support nor be voting for Joe Biden in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

Several polls indicated that 92 % of African Americans voted for Biden in 2020, but he has been losing support from that community since then. Also, they have criticized Biden on how he has been handling the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

During the candid discussion, a young lady, Rokiya Garbo expressed profound distrust in Biden’s leadership and stated unequivocally, “We have no trust in Joe Biden.”

Mozn Shora echoed her feelings and also said she would rather vote for a third-party candidate. This would mean a shift away from the traditional binary choice between the Democratic and Republican nominees.

The rise of independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West of the ‘Justice for All Party,’ and Green Party’s Jill Stein as alternative choices clearly reflect a shifting political landscape.

This trend is further underscored by the discontent voiced by Lonnie White and Malik Poole, who are now leaning towards candidates offering a divergent path, particularly in relation to international conflicts such as the one in Gaza.

This group, which embodies a generational and ideological shift within the Democratic base, underscored a critical stage in American politics.

Their disappointment stems not only from domestic policy concerns but also from international humanitarian considerations.

The decline in support among young African American voters in battleground states like Georgia is not just a local issue, but a broader challenge that Biden is grappling with as he seeks re-election.

Polling has suggested that Biden’s recent downturn among younger voters is tied to the president’s management of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

According to a recent poll by The Wall Street Journal, Biden’s support among black voters in battleground states has fallen to 68 % from 91 % in 2020.

As these voters explore alternatives outside the traditional political spectrum, their voices clearly indicate a growing demand for a more nuanced and principled approach to domestic and international policy issues.
