The future of the Democrat Party is grim. They never thought it’d end this way.
And now the DNC headquarters is on fire and in a total panic due to this one news report.
A new Gallup survey shows that the Democratic Party’s lead over Republicans among adults of Black and Hispanic descent has decreased by over 20 points in the past three years, hitting the lowest level recorded since Gallup started keeping track of the data.
Gallup has been tracking the percentage of Black adults who identify as Democrats or lean Democratic since 1999, and the gap between the two groups narrowed from 66% in 2020 to 47% in 2023, according to a poll released on Wednesday. Among individuals of African descent, 63% identify as Democrats or lean Democrat, while just 19% do the same for Republicans or lean Republican.
A same but less severe tendency has been observed among Hispanic individuals.
This past year, the Democratic Party’s lead over the Republican Party among Hispanics shrank to its lowest position since Gallup started tracking this trend in 2011. As a result, 47% of Hispanics consider themselves Democrats or leaning Democratic, while 35% consider themselves Republicans or leaning Republican.
The only racial or cultural category that does not in majority support the Democratic Party, however, are adults who are white. A third of white voters lean toward the Democratic Party, while 54% lean toward the Republican Party.
Additionally, among Americans aged 18–29, the survey found that Democrats hold an 8 percent lead — the party’s lowest support among that age bracket since 2005.
Among those without a bachelor’s degree, Republicans had a 14-point advantage over Democrats, illustrating how educational disparities are fueling the partisan divide. A similar trend has emerged in the United States, where 16% more males now say they are Republicans or lean Republican.
The most recent statistics should worry Democrats, according to Gallup’s analysis of all the results.
“The data show the Democratic Party retaining advantages among people of color and young adults, but in 2023 it was in a weaker position among these groups than at any point in the past quarter century,” states a report from Gallup.
“Democrats’ reduced support among Black and Hispanic adults should be especially concerning for the party, given Republicans’ continued strength among White adults, who remain the majority of the electorate.”
It would appear that the survey confirms President Joe Biden’s precipitous decline in popularity, particularly among minority groups. A January study by USA Today and Suffolk University found that the president’s favor among Blacks fell from 87% in 2020 to 63% in 2021. Similarly, his popularity among Hispanics has been on the slide as of late, falling from 65% four years ago to 34%.
Many Left-leaning alternative media journalists are sounding the alarm about Joe Biden’s likelihood of winning against the surging Donald Trump come November.
There’s been louder and louder calls for Joe Biden to step aside and for someone to swoop in and “save” the Democrats this election year.
That ship may have sailed, according to these results. It’s not just Joe Biden who has lost support amongst minority groups in a major way.
The Democrat Party as a whole no longer has the dramatic vast majority of support from black and Hispanic voters which they have relied on for decades now.
On the flip side, Donald Trump is polling better than any Republican in history with black and Hispanic voters. He performed better than any Republican Presidential candidate back in 2016 and 2020.
Should he continue that trend this year, it’s hard to imagine anyone being able to compete against Donald Trump in the fight for 270 electoral votes unless something completely unexpected happens.
Which, we all know, is always possible. 2020 was anything but normal in many ways.
