This is a good post. I am obviously not black, but my sense all along is that black voters would support someone other than Biden if they can demonstrate their mettle as a candidate, and they'd pull away from Biden if they felt he was a dangerously weak and feeble candidate. I don't think we're there quite yet, but there's enough evidence that the voters can shift and flip the tables on Biden. His campaign surely knows that.
