Voters Were Just As Diverse In 2014 As They Were In 2008

As the United States becomes more diverse, Republicans are supposedly going to suffer. Nothing encapsulated this theory more than President Obama’s 2008 election, powered by nonwhite voters — mainly Hispanics, black people and Asians.

In politics, “demographics are destiny,” as the saying goes.

But that’s not right, as I have long argued: Demographics are not destiny, and the 2014 Census Bureau voting supplement, released today, backs up this point well. CONT.
