Areas with large populations of immigrants across the U.S., especially Latino and Asian and Pacific Islanders, voted Republican in higher numbers last November. Places like Chicago, New York, California, and Florida saw a surge in voter turnout and a significant shift to the right. Statistics show America may become a majority-minority nation by 2050, but this election has demonstrated that ethnic groups do not vote as blocs. How can both parties reorient their platforms to speak to minority voters as they increasingly become the majority in the U.S.?
