What did you think was going to happen when all you offer is orange drink and fried chicken?Democrats Lost Ground With Non-College Voters of Color In 2020 SMH. As you look at the chart below, Democrats have fallen with voters of color in all categories.
We went from a high of 86% to a low of 68%. Folks of color are seeing that offering minorities welfare and freebees is starting to backfire.
In digging through the 2020 voter data provided by the Democratic data firm Catalist, Third Way's Aliza Astrow found that even as Biden was able to slightly improve on Clinton's showing with white, non-college voters, "Democrats endured a sharp drop-off in support" from non-college voters of color. In 2016, according to the data from Catalist, Clinton took 81 percent of the vote from non-college voters of color. In 2020, Biden took 75 percent among this group, a 6-point drop.
As with white voters, there is a decent gender gap among voters of color, both among non-college and college-educated voters. But, the drop in support among women (both college and non-college-educated) for Democrats between 2016 and 2020 was significant. For example, while Biden did 5 points worse among non-college men of color and 2 points worse among college-educated men of color than Clinton, he performed five points worse among college-educated women and seven points worse among non-college women. While many suspected that Trump’s appeal was unique to male voters of color (some attributed it to Trump’s direct appeal to ‘machismo’) Astrow’s analysis shows that he gained among women voters of color too.
