Comment: Could New Citizens Decide The President?
Fox News Latino reports on how changing demographics may play a role in both Presidential and Congressional races in key states. Several key swing states have large populations of new citizens and those voters could make a difference come November. According to a study cited the article, there are approximately 7.8 million people of voting age who have naturalized since 2000, making up 3.6% of all voters. Florida, that state that will perhaps be the biggest single decider of the Presidential race, and Nevada, another key swing state, both have considerably higher rates of newly naturalized voters, with Florida coming in at 6%. Historically, the political party that reached new voters first was able to hold on to them. While no one meets new immigrants at the docks like they did in the 1890's, the Obama campaign has been sending volunteers to citizenship ceremonies for months to help those people get registered to vote as well as working in other ways to attract this block of new voters. This is yet another group where the Democrats are making strides while the GOP is not and where the GOP's exclusionist rhetoric may have an increasingly negative impact on their long-term viability.
