    Will the 2016 election come down to black women?

    For black women, history shows that they are a powerful and driving voting bloc.

    for black women, history shows that they are a powerful and driving voting bloc. A national survey for the Joint Center showed that 90 percent of black women said that they would be voting this year. What’s more, the survey found that many African-Americans consider this election to be crucial.

    “We found that an overwhelming majority of black men and women indicated that they saw the 2016 race as a high-stakes election,” said Gillespie, a co-author of the report. “And when it came to age and voting patterns, there was a correlation. Younger cohorts were less committed to voting.”
