Democrats Becoming ‘Majority-Minority Party’ Led by College-Educated Whites: Report

Ari Blaff, National Review, February 4, 2023

A new report published by the Manhattan Institute argues that the Democratic Party is becoming a tension-generating mix of college-educated Whites and non-college-educated nonwhites.

The new demographic makeup of the DNC may create a “tension” the report’s author, Zach Goldberg writes, “when it comes to political priorities.” The rapidly changing makeup of the Democratic Party presents “an awkward paradox” {snip}

“[T]he Democratic Party will likely become a majority-minority party relatively soon, but one that is still largely and disproportionately steered by liberal college-educated whites.”

This ensuing clash of political agendas between the two wings of the party, Goldberg asserts, will likely favor richer, better-educated, white Democrats. “Those with a college education tend to be wealthier and have higher socioeconomic status than those without, but they also tend to be more socially liberal and more likely to prioritize post-material moral concerns over kitchen-table issues.”


This new dynamic could be a windfall for Republicans seeking to entice minority voters into the tent turned off by the Democrat’s embrace of college-educated preferences such as identity politics, affirmative action, and political correctness. {snip}
