VIDEO: Ben Carson Speaks Out

( – Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson spoke out about how black voters are no longer “just following ideology” as many are reportedly moving away from the Democratic Party ahead of the 2024 elections.

Watch the video further down this post. 

Carson appeared on “Jesse Watters Primetime” to discuss recent polls showing that former President Donald Trump is competing with, and in some cases leading, Biden for many key Democratic party voting blocs.

Fox host Jesse Watters highlighted black voters’ historical loyalty to the Democrats and asked Carson for his perspective on the apparent shift.

“I think they’re looking out for their own self interest. There comes a point where things have gotten so bad that you have to reassess what you normally do. Why are things this bad? And they are finally having a look at actual policies rather than just following ideology. The same thing with the young people,” Carson explained.

Carson shared insights from his experiences visiting college campuses with Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA and emphasized a growing demand among young people for authenticity and viable pathways to achieving the American dream.

“Young people are thirsting for truth in a direction that will allow them to realize the American dream. They realized that the American dream is fading away. Not philosophically, but in practicality because of the incredibly crazy policies that are going on right now…” he added.

According to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll, Trump leads Biden in five of the six major swing states—Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and Pennsylvania—with Biden holding the lead only in Wisconsin.

The poll also indicated a significant desire for fundamental societal changes among major voting groups like young voters, black voters, and Hispanics, with many doubting Biden’s capability to manage these changes if re-elected.

The poll has also brought to light a potential historical shift in black voter allegiance. It suggests that Trump could secure over 20% of the black vote, a figure unmatched by Republicans since the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Additionally, both Trump and Biden are estimated to have a tie between voters 18 to 29 years old, as well as with Hispanics.
