Akunna Cook, the founding executive director of Black Economic Alliance, said African-American turnout for the 2020 elections will ultimately “determine who sits in the White House,” in an interview that aired Friday.
The Black Economic Alliance released results of a nationwide survey on Wednesday that identified the top economic issues for the black community. The survey found a three-way tie with affordable health care, college affordability and creating good-paying jobs with benefits each getting 77 percent of the vote.
The article goes on to state the following:
The survey also found that an overwhelming majority of black voters favor former Vice President Joe Biden as their top candidate.
“Ultimately, we believe these are going to be the issues that decide this election because these are the voters that are going to decide this election,” Cook told Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons in reference to the results of the poll. “Whether or not we come out is going to determine who sits in the White House.”
A new poll from the Black Economic Alliance of 1,003 black Americans found that between 27% – 33% of those surveyed “have reservations” about or are “very uncomfortable” with Booker, Warren, Beto, and Mayor Pete as presidential candidates. More on @axios https://t.co/XRBcDLLcO3
