Poll Shows ‘Demographic Change’ Splits Nation

Neil Munro, Breitbart, June 6, 2022

Republican voters are growing more concerned about migration’s demographic impact on their nation, according to a YouGov poll.

The poll also shows that a large slice of the Democratic Party is eager for a high-migration society in which whites are a minority.

The poll asked: “By the year 2050, a majority of the population will be made up of people who are Black, Asian, Hispanic, and other racial minorities.”

Respondents were evenly split: 22 percent said the demographic change would be a “very” or a “somewhat” good thing,” while 20 percent said a “very” or a “somewhat” bad thing.


Thirty percent of people who voted for Joe Biden in 2020 say it would be “a very good thing,” and 14 percent said “a somewhat” good thing.

Just 3 percent of President Donald Trump’s voters said it would be a “very good thing.”  But 19 percent said it would be a “very bad thing,” and 21 percent said it would be “somewhat bad.”

Overall, 44 percent of Democrats approve and 40 percent of Republicans oppose the demographic change.

Roughly 40 percent of all voters say it will be neither good nor bad, and roughly 20 percent said “not sure.”

The May poll follows a September 2021 poll by YouGov, which showed that 55 percent of Republicans believe that immigration makes American “worse off.” A similar YouGov poll in June showed the “worse off” GOP response was only 32 percent.

The worries of mainstream GOP voters were reflected in several other questions.

The poll asked: “Do you think the economic, political, and cultural influence of native-born Americans is currently decreasing, increasing, or staying about the same as it was?”

Thirty percent of the poll said native-born Americans are losing influence, including 50 percent of Trump voters and 20 percent of Biden voters. Almost 60 percent of respondents said the native-born influence was stable or that they were unsure.

The poll asked: whether the racial diversity caused by the demographic change will “strengthen customs and values.”

Thirty-two percent said it will weaken those values. That group includes 63 percent of Trump voters. But 43 percent of Biden voters said racial diversity would strengthen customs and values.

The poll asked: “Will Racial Diversity Lead To Conflict”?

Thirty-eight percent of all voters predicted “More conflicts between racial and ethnic groups.” That negative view was shared by 31 percent of Biden voters and 55 percent of Trump voters. Sixteen percent predicted few conflicts – including 24 percent of Biden voters.

The poll asked: “Do you think that an increase in immigration to the U.S. would politically benefit [Democrats or Republicans]?

Democrats split 37 percent good for Democrats and 3 percent good for Republicans. Republicans split 50 percent good for Democrats, 15 percent good for Republicans.


The poll also asked: “Discrimination against White people has become as big a problem as discrimination against Black people. Do you agree or disagree”?

A plurality of 49 percent of whites agreed on growing anti-white discrimination. Twenty-five percent of whites strongly agreed, and 24 percent “somewhat agreed.”

For Trump voters, 41 percent “strongly” agreed and 33 percent “somewhat” agreed.

Sixty percent of Biden’s voters “strongly” disagreed,
