According to a poll done by the New York Times and Siena College and released on Tuesday, the Democratic Party has the support of more college-educated white voters than minority voters.
According to the survey, 57 percent of white voters with a bachelor's degree prefer Democrats to dominate Congress after the 2022 elections, while only 36 percent prefer Republicans to control Congress after those elections. According to the study, non-Hispanic and non-black minorities support Republican control of Congress by a margin of 39 percent to 34 percent, while Hispanics are split on which party should control Congress. Meanwhile, Republicans are gaining ground with ethnic voters. Hispanics' preferences for which party should dominate Congress are essentially split.
According to Axios, the Democratic Party lost support from white voters with college degrees in 2018, despite Hispanic people supporting them by a margin of around 50 points. According to Axios, this behavior represents a "seismic shift" that is realigning American politics.
According to Nate Cohn, senior political analyst for The New York Times, the change reflects Democrats' increasing emphasis on social issues such as immigration, LGBT rights, affirmative action, abortion, and others. Cohn says that more culturally conservative working-class voters of all races are turned off by this social liberalism, whereas progressive college graduates are drawn to the party because of its appeal to social liberalism.
According to the survey results, black voters are the only minority group that has shown consistent support for the Democratic Party.
