Description
The impact of the black vote nationally and locally in the 1992 election. The increase in members of the Black Congressional Caucus will be positive since they mostly represent urban centers and will allow them to centralize support for causes important for these areas. But with greater numbers, there is the possibility of factions. State legislatures will see a greater increase in black representation. The guest refutes the inference that black leaders are elected in black communities by citing examples. The Republican party doesn't adopt urban issues in their platform to attract black voters, so the black electorate continue to support the Democratic party. Turnout in the 1992 election is discussed and how Clinton is not actively seeking the black vote, even though his positions are those that blacks would predominately support. The Democratic National Committee is making efforts to provide resources to community leaders so that they can help people register to vote.
