In 2020, Black voters turned out in large numbers for Joe Biden, giving him a nearly 30-point win over Bernie Sanders — proving, once again, the power of the Democrats’ most loyal constituency.

That influence is rooted in the work of politically active black pastors who get souls to the polls, crown winners with endorsements … and even run for office themselves. But is that power waning in a party that’s considered secular and elite?

Joshua Johnson, host of NOW Tonight with Joshua Johnson, talks about the role that the Black Chuck plays in Democratic politics, the subject of this week’s “Meet the Press Reports.”
