Cornell Belcher, a former pollster for President Obama, predicts that African Americans won’t be voting in the same number as 2012. According to the Christian Post, his comments were included in a private memo.

“African-American surge voters came out in force in 2008 and 2012, but they are not well positioned to do so again in 2014,” Belcher reportedly warned in the memo. “In fact, over half aren’t even sure when the midterm elections are taking place.”

He said the drop in the number of voters in a non-Presidential election is much higher for Democrats then Republicans. He based this on voter precinct data rather than actual racial make-up.

Low-voter turnout in the black community could affect the final outcomes in some key races. The New York Times listed the states that could be impacted.

African-Americans could help swing elections in Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and possibly Arkansas, a New York Times analysis of voter data shows, but only if they turn out at higher-than-forecast rates. They will also be important in Kentucky, where Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democratic Senate candidate, refuses to say if she voted for President Obama.

At a Maryland rally, the crowd began leaving during President Obama’s speech. Who Belcher created the document for is unknown.
