Democrats Losing Minority Voters

2022 exit polls show the GOP continuing to make inroads with black and Latino voters.

WHY IT MATTERS: Since 2016, working class voters have been shifting toward the GOP. This voter bloc includes many minority voters.   

THE SHIFT: Since the 2018 elections, support for Democrats has dropped with the following groups of Americans:

  • Black women down 7 points
  • Black men down 11 points 
  • Latina women down 14 points  
  • Latino men down 21 points

BOTTOM LINE: While Democrats did better than expected in the 2022 midterms, the continuing erosion of support with minority voters should be of concern.
