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.
