Is it time to worry about the November election ? His support among black voters has dropped in a hypothetical three-way race with Trump and a third-party candidate. While the sample size is small, making precise comparisons unreliable, about two-thirds of African American voters support Biden now; nearly 8 in 10 had backed him in December. Those voters didn’t move to Trump, supported by just 8%. But one in four black voters now say they are undecided or would vote for a third-party candidate.

African-American voters in the South Carolina primary and on Super Tuesday were crucial in Biden’s primary victories, and analysts agree it’s imperative for him to generate enthusiastic support among them in November. He has promised to select a woman as his running mate, and some activists are urging him to choose a black woman such as California Sen. Kamala Harris, Florida Rep. Val Demings, or Stacey Abrams, who lost a bid for Georgia governor last year.

In the wake of the primaries, Biden has made progress in consolidating support among Democrats; 87% of Democratic voters now back him, and he has been endorsed by his primary rivals, former president Barack Obama and others. He has gained ground among voters under 35, a group that had been more likely in the primaries to support Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Now Biden is backed over Trump among younger voters by 50%-25%.

That said, one in four of those 18 to 34 years old are still undecided or prefer a third-party candidate. “I don’t have anything against Biden; I was just hoping for something different,” said Kate Elliott, 33, a Democrat from Cincinnati who would have preferred Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren or Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana – both of whom have endorsed Biden. But there's no question she prefers Biden over Trump, calling the president's leadership during the pandemic irrational and unpredictable. “I’ll vote for Biden,” she said, “but with a heavy sigh.”
