Rusty Weiss writes for about a potential electoral problem for Democrats this fall.

Top supporters of President Biden are fighting back against reports and polling numbers that show Donald Trump drawing unprecedented interest from black voters.

It’s a desperate attempt to quell panic not seen since a violinist named Wallace Hartley convinced his 8-man band to keep playing orchestral music on the Titanic.

Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), whose endorsement of Biden prior to the South Carolina primary in 2020 is widely seen as a turning point in the former vice president’s campaign by securing black support in that state, is in full denial, saying “Something is amiss with the polling.”

“Anybody who believes that Donald Trump will get 30 percent of the Black male vote or 12 percent of the Black female vote — I got a bridge down there on Johns Island I’ll sell you.”

Clyburn said in January, however, that he was “very concerned” about the President’s sway with black voters. Now, as polling shows a significant shift in support from the black community, we’re being asked to believe there’s no concern.

Surrogates for the Biden campaign have been fanning out on legacy media stations to deliver the same message that Clyburn has – It’s just “poor polling.”

Despite the outward presentation, rest assured Democrats are in full-blown panic mode.

CNN data reporter Harry Enten recently lowered the curtain on the backstage chaos being felt in the media and the resistance party.

Polling aggregates show support for Biden has dropped 16 points overall among black voters from 2020. Making it worse for the President’s reelection prospects, they’re actually gravitating very strongly to the presumptive GOP nominee.

According to these overall numbers:

*Trump has tripled his support among Black voters from 7% in 2020 to 21% today.

*Among Black voters aged 50+, Biden has dropped 9 points.

*Among Black voters under age 50, Biden nearly halved his support, dropping 43 points.
