RNC Reportedly To Keep Minority Outreach Open

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is reportedly backing away from a plan that would have eliminated its outreach to minority groups, according to a recent report. The RNC had allegedly considered ending such outreach despite polls showing a significantly higher rate of support for former President Donald Trump among Black and Latino voters compared to previous elections.

The move came after a shakeup in the RNC’s leadership, including the installation of the new Chair Michael Whatley, and Co-Chair Lara Trump.

After reports that the RNC would end its minority outreach plan, Whatley wrote to RNC committee members that it would continue its voter outreach programs.

“Every tool that the other side has used, we need to wield for ourselves,” Whatley said. “We will strive relentlessly towards historic accomplishments, and fully modernizing the organization between now and Election Day.”

Non-White voters have increasingly expressed discontent with Biden’s track recording, including on issues such as crime, migrants, inflation and the economy.

Republicans appear to be gaining significant strength among Black and Latino voters.

Several polls have shown Trump’s support among Black voters increasing to about 25%. Several polls have shown Trump and Biden about splitting the Latino vote, with some surveys placing Trump in the lead.

Biden is also losing support among Muslim and Arab American voters, whose leaders accuse the president of being too supportive of Israel during its current war against the Hamas terrorist group.

One poll found support for Biden declining dramatically, with some Muslim leaders being unwilling to meet with representatives of the president’s campaign. Furthermore, some Muslim leaders encouraged voters to select ‘Uncommitted’ in the Democratic Party presidential primary rather than voting for Biden.

The decline in support could have major implications for the November election. Muslim American and Black support helped push Biden over the top in states such as Minnesota and Michigan in 2020. Declining Black and Latino support could also place Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Arizona in jeopardy.
