A Wake-Up Call for Democrats

On the Point commentary by Greg C. Truax/Image by Mary Pahlke from Pixabay

More Black and Hispanic voters are self-describing as Republicans.

My statement is based on a national poll by NBC. Importantly, this trend is a boost to Republican candidates. Recently, I noted this trend in  Florida as 2020 was a banner year for GOP candidates.

In the national NBC poll, blue-collar Hispanic’s shifted to the GOP by 13 points over the past decade.  The same for blue-collar Black voters, which shifted to the GOP by 7 points.

This trend helped former President Trump.  He did lose the election, but gained 4 percentage points with Black voters, 5 points with Asian Americans and 3 points with Hispanics, according to AP Votecast.

The defection of these voters to the GOP is a big wake-up call to the Democratic Party.
