The contours of the American electorate are constantly changing. Trends in birthrate, educational attainment, and group support for particular parties are measurable and projectable in the short- and long-term. How these factors play out at the individual state and county levels will have huge implications for both Republicans and Democrats as the country heads toward the 2018 and 2020 elections and beyond.
This month’s podcast with the authors of the States of Change demographic project reports—Ruy Teixeira (Center for American Progress), William Frey (the Brookings Institution), and Rob Griffin (PRRI)—focuses on projections made about the coalition President Trump built in 2016 and how other demographic factors might affect the upcoming elections. States of Change is a joint project of the Bipartisan Policy Center, PRRI, Center for American Progress, and the Brookings Institution.
