Survey Finds Black Voters Less Solidly Democratic ( African Americans are becoming less likely to identify themselves as Democrats, and give Republican Secretary of State Colin L. Powell a higher approval rating than civil rights icon Jesse L. Jackson, according to an opinion poll released yesterday by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.
The survey, which also bolstered previous findings that a majority of African Americans prefer school vouchers to other education improvement plans, is an indication of changing attitudes in a community that has long identified overwhelmingly with the Democratic Party and its agenda.
