Countless Elections Are Decided By Black Voters. Many More Are Decided By Black NON-Voters.
When comparing midterm to presidential election cycles, Black voters “drop off” at a rate of 2 to 8 percentage points greater than white voters. This drop off is more than the margin of victory in numerous congressional races and state elections.
BLACK MIDTERM VOTER PROJECT
