For decades, the Democrat Party has depended on select demographics to help them try and get elected.
But as things start to change dramatically in this country, so do the minds of many voters.
And now Democrat insiders are sweating bullets as these key voting demographics are leaving the party in droves.
Gallup shows Democrats losing favor among blacks and Hispanics
A new Gallup poll has uncovered that the Democrat Party is losing support from two of its most reliable groups: blacks and Hispanics.
These numbers could pose a challenge to President Joe Biden’s re-election plans.
The Democrats lead over Republicans has fallen by nearly 20 percent in barely three years among black Americans who participated in the poll.
And among Hispanic adults, the Democrats lead is almost the same, with just a very modest advantage over Republicans as both parties gear up for the 2024 election.
Gallup found that the loss is only slightly offset by some gains among college-educated Americans, both with and without college degrees.
An article on the Gallup website posting results of the poll is entitled, “Democrats Losing Ground with Black and Hispanic Adults.”
The research company said in a statement, “These shifts in the party affiliation of key subgroups provide the demographic backstory for how Democrats went from enjoying significant leads over Republicans between 2012 and 2021, to slight deficits in 2022 and 2023.”
And, the statement said, “The 27% of U.S. adults identifying as Democrats and the 42% identifying as or leaning Democratic are both new lows in Gallup’s trend.”
The data was gleaned from combined surveys conducted in 2023 among 12,145 adults with a margin of error of one percentage point.
A statement on the Gallup website noted that the “Republican and Democratic parties have distinct strengths within different subgroups of the U.S. population. However, Democrats have lost ground among some of their traditionally stronger support groups while gaining ground with others.”
It noted that the Democrats’ 12-point lead among Hispanic adults in 2023 “represents a new low in trends dating back to 2011 when Gallup began routinely interviewing in Spanish as well as English.”
Gallup says white adults “have maintained a 14- to 17-point preference for the Republican party in most years since 2014.”
Some demographics still support Democrats
The research company also pointed out that the Democrat Party isn’t seeing any major declines among other groups, including women “who retain a solid Democratic preference.”
Gallup also noted that adults 65 and older remain “evenly divided.”
“Democrats also have strong advantages in the leaned party identification of nonreligious adults, postgraduates and residents of big cities, and they hold a solid nine-point lead among women,” the website added.
However, Gallup also noted that “Republicans’ greatest pockets of strength are with people who attend religious services weekly (leading Democrats by 26 points among this group) and residents of towns or rural areas (+25). The GOP holds smaller double-digit advantages among residents, white adults, men, non-college-educated adults, residents of the South, and semi-regular church attenders.”
