*A recent poll indicates that Donald Trump is unlikely to receive substantial support from Black voters in the November presidential election.

According to new research from the Pew Research Center, 83 percent of Black voters favor the Democratic Party, Newsweek reports. Meanwhile, 12 percent of Black voters support the Republican Party.

The Pew Research Center conducted its annual survey with 10,124 participants. However, the study focused solely on party preferences and did not inquire about specific candidates.

“Middle age and older Black women seem to take a better than Trump lesser of two evils posture,” Mary Frances Berry, historian at The Pennsylvania State University, told Newsweek in January.

“But nobody I know is excited about reelecting Biden,” she continued. “They like Kamala Harris, but lots of folks will probably stay home unless some unexpected positive change in economic prospects or civil rights occurs.”

Meanwhile, former ESPN host Sage Steele asserts that choosing Trump over Biden is an obvious decision.  

“To me, Donald Trump is the obvious answer based on what he believes, what he can do, what he has shown that he can do starting with the defense of our country, our safety, etc. and nothing to do with the personal stuff. I don’t care anymore,” she said in an interview with Fox News Digital.

“It’s about policy, not emotion. And that’s what I wish people could get over is that emotional stuff. It’s maddening,” Steele continued. 

“I’m nervous for him. Sometimes I get nervous for his safety. Honestly, like it’s crazy,” she said. “The 91 charges, and you know, all the lawsuits and awarding $83 million… What happened with the Fani Willis case. Like, I am blown away. Every time I think, ‘OL, this is a new low. It can’t go any lower.’ What happens?!”
