Buttigieg S Carolina Poll

Recommended Posts

Guest

In today’s poll in S Carolina, Buttigieg received 0% support among African-American voters.   

Not a great signal for Dems if they hope he’ll be a strong general election candidate.

This isn’t surprising at all considering his track record with blacks in South Bend

Yeah. It’s very disappointing.

Agreed, though it’s notable to that he’s also competing against TWO mainstream candidates who are black, plus the VP to the first black President.  It’s going to be an uphill battle.  I think expectations need to be reasonable in that regard, though I do think it’s notable that he is being transparent and honest about it.  “We don’t seem to be drawing in non-white people.  Can you help us understand why, and what we can do to fix that?”

Could you elaborate, I haven't heard of this?

Polls this early are worthless in predicting the future for primaries that come after Iowa.  The average American is not paying attention to the Democratic primary, let alone aware of who the heck Buttigieg is.  (The guy is still a new unknown from the middle of nowhere.)

Clinton mostly beat Obama by double digits in South Carolina polls throughout 2007 until he surprise won Iowa in 2008.  Then black Democrats finally started paying attention and accepted him as a viable presidential candidate.

Here is a six-month snapshot of 2007 polls from South Carolina:
