Demography Is Destiny


Is Demography Destiny?

across European countries, as in the United States, the general tendency is for immigrant/minority voters to vote left.” “the rising immigrant/minority population is a boost for the left across advanced Western countries.”


“Previously, the New York Times acknowledged that Democrats are “counting on demographic changes” in Georgia to unseat Loeffler and Perdue. Specifically, Democrats are looking to foreign-born voters from Asia to boost their margins.”

“Analysis by The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein has previously revealed that congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average, a little more than 14 percent, have a 90 percent chance of being won by Democrats over Republicans.”

Georgia Democrats Lean on ‘Changing’ Demographics to Flip State Blue

By John Binder – 28 Dec 2020

Democrat Party insiders in Georgia are leaning on the state’s “changing” demographics, mostly due to immigration, to win the upcoming Senate runoff elections in their quest to defeat Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA).

Benjamin writes that “long-term demographic shifts are politically realigning Georgia and other Southern states,” a realignment that the state’s Democrat insiders are taking note of. Democrat Stacey Abrams’ “New Georgia Project,” for instance, has said to have registered almost half a million non-white voters ahead of the Senate runoff election.

Previously, the New York Times acknowledged that Democrats are “counting on demographic changes” in Georgia to unseat Loeffler and Perdue. Specifically, Democrats are looking to foreign-born voters from Asia to boost their margins.

In 2000, Asians accounted for 2.1 percent of Georgia’s population. In 1990, they accounted for just 1.1 percent of the state’s population. By 2020, though, their share has increased to 4.3 percent and in counties like Forsyth and Gwinnett, they account for 14.5 percent and 12.4 percent of all residents.

The New York Times and a Washington Post columnist have recently acknowledged that Democrats are leaning heavily on the results of mass immigration to Georgia to flip the state blue as they have done in Virginia and Orange County, California.

“The emergence in Georgia of Asian-American voters is a potential bright spot for a Democratic Party counting on demographic changes to bring political wins across the country,” the Times reported last month.

Analysis by The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein has previously revealed that congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average, a little more than 14 percent, have a 90 percent chance of being won by Democrats over Republicans.
