Contributing sentiments towards policy:

44% : Indeed, some GOP positions, on subjects such as abortion, LGBTQ rights, education and immigration reform, have strong support within the Black community, and are seen by conservatives as issues that can win over Black voters who "are Republicans who just don't know it yet," as Sears, Virginia's new lieutenant governor, likes to say.
44% : That allegiance began with the 1936 reelection of President Franklin Roosevelt on the heels of the New Deal with its social programs for the poor, was bolstered when President Harry Truman integrated the Armed Forces and banned racial discrimination in federal employment, and was cemented in the 1960s with President Lyndon Johnson pushing through the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts.
38% : Cases in point: A 2019 Pew poll found that 49 percent of Black Americans oppose same-sex marriage versus 32 percent of whites; a 2020 Gallup survey reported that 54 percent of Black respondents do not believe abortion is morally acceptable; a 2018 Harvard-Harris survey found 85 percent of Black Americans favor restricting legal immigration, more than any other demographic group; and 73 percent of Black voters support school choice, according to a 2021 RealClear survey.
32% : After all, Trump did increase his share of the Black vote in 2020 despite running against a ticket that included Democrat Kamala Harris, the first Black major-party vice presidential candidate, and just months after Black Lives Matter demonstrations related to George Floyd's death and other Black victims of police violence.
