  • Aug 28 - Evolving Demographics and National Elections

    Comment: Evolving Demographics and National Elections - The Huffington Post suggests that GOP's immigration stance is placing presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney and indeed the party as a whole in an increasingly precarious position. Demographic trends in ethnic diversity and population age on both national and local levels suggest this. In 2004, George W. Bush was able to win Florida, largely because he captured 44% of the Latino vote nationally. In 2008, the state was won by Obama. For Romney to have any viable chance of occupying the White House, he will need to take back Florida as well as at least some other increasingly Latino states, like Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada. Romney and the party are making few friends in Latino communities across the country. Deferred Action has further put Romney in a pickle - he cannot support it without angering his base nor denounce it and push the Latino community further away. While Romney has shown no willingness or ability to effectively court the Latino vote, the GOP will eventually have to learn that it must either coalesce on issues like immigration or simply be run out of Washington. Immigration could also be a tool to help an economy that has been more difficult to get on track than either party anticipated. Perhaps the whole situation was best summed up by the CRS last year: "Immigration issues and potential reform have broad implications for a number of policy areas. Immigration may stimulate the economy by providing both low and high skilled workers. Pursuing an immigration strategy that favors workers entering for employment reasons may also slow U.S. population aging thus averting or delaying a number of the policy challenges that could arise from population aging." Share your thoughts on how the nation's changing demographics will shape this year's election and immigration policy going forward at editor@ilw.com and see the Huffington Post article here and the CRS report on demographics at page 28 is quoted above.
