On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.So it is not that young people and women suddenly started drinking the kool-aid. Young white voters went for Romney, and so did married women.
According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent voted for Obama. That’s the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic — white women under 30 — slightly favored Romney.
Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980 — and that was when whites were 88 percent of the electorate. Only 58 percent of today’s under-30 vote is white and it’s shrinking daily.
The trends that are so favorable to the Democrats are the dramatic rise of Third World immigration and the collapse of the nuclear family.
Eighty-five percent of legal immigrants since 1968 have come from the Third World. A majority of them are in need of government assistance. ...You can be sure that Democrats are analyzing these same demographics, and concluding that they can guarantee future elections by continuing high non-white immigration, granting amnesty for illegal immigrants, and destroying the nuclear family.
More than half of all babies born to Hispanic women today are illegitimate. As Heather MacDonald has shown, the birthrate of Hispanic women is twice that of the rest of the population, and their unwed birthrate is one and a half times that of blacks.
That’s a lot of government dependents coming down the pike. No amount of “reaching out” to the Hispanic community, effective “messaging” or Reagan’s “optimism” is going to turn Mexico’s underclass into Republicans.
Any election analysis that doesn’t deal with the implacable fact of America’s changing demographics is bound to be wrong.
