Analysis: Increasingly Diverse U.S. Counties Quickly Turn Democrat

Aug. 29, 2019

The more counties across the United States become diverse, the more quickly Democrat-majority they become, new analysis reveals.

The latest Pew Research Center study, as Breitbart News reported, finds that about 109 U.S. counties across 22 states that were once majority white in 2000 became majority-minority in 2018. Today, there are roughly 293 majority-minority U.S. counties, concentrated mostly along the coasts in states such as California, Florida, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Analysis conducted by One America News Network's (OAN) Ryan Girdusky reveals that the overwhelming majority of these increasingly diverse 109 U.S. counties also became more and more Democrat over less than two decades.

"The big takeaway is this: Republicans were losing ground because of mass immigration long before Trump. The Republican vote declined in 81 of the 109 counties," Girdusky wrote in his weekly newsletter of the analysis. "Formerly safe Republican districts in places like Georgia, especially, that went for George W. Bush by huge majorities in 2000 were lost by John McCain and Mitt Romney."

Take Rockdale County, Georgia, for example, where the white population dropped from 73 percent in 2000 to 30 percent in 2018. In 2000 presidential election, more than 62 percent of Rockdale County residents voted for Republican President George W. Bush.

In 2008, Republican nominee John McCain won just 45 percent and in 2012, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) won only 41 percent of the vote. By 2016, only 35 percent of Rockdale County voted for President Trump over Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton — representing a nearly 30 percent drop in GOP support in the area in 16 years.
