Election day 2016: Hispanic voter impact

Written by Christopher Stanley on . Posted in Research, U.S. Hispanic

The upcoming 2016 U.S. elections promise not only to be interesting (to put it mildly), but also will show the impact of a voter population that is continually more diverse. According to a recent post on Pew Hispanic…..1 in 3 eligible voters will be Hispanic, black, Asian or other ethnic minority with much of that growth coming from Hispanic eligible voters.

Looking at 2012 – 2016, while non-Hispanic white voters outnumber those of ethnic or racial minorities, the share continues to slip. Hispanic (17%) and Asian (16%) are the groups with the strongest percentage growth, and with the numbers of Hispanic and Black eligible voters being nearly even there will continue to be an increasing impact on the elections by non-White voter groups.

Quick hits from the article:
– Non-Hispanic whites: 69% of eligible voters, but accounted for 76% of all eligible voters who died between 2012-2016
– Non-Hispanic whites: only accounted for 57% of new eligible voters who turned 18 between 2012-2016
– Racial and Ethnic minorities who make up 31% of the electorate accounted for 43% of new eligible voters born in the U.S. who became eligible in that period.

Adding in immigration among Hispanic and Asian groups, these groups will continue to have an increasing impact on the U.S. elections going forward and the candidates and political parties should continue to increase their efforts to be inclusive of these groups.
