MediaMatters, Campaign for America's Future cheer political benefits of declining numbers of whites (Eric Lotke)

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Two George Soros-funded groups - the Campaign for Americas Future and Media Matters for America - have released a report authored by Eric Lotke entitled "America: A Center-Left Nation" (ourfuture.org/report/center-left-nation):

The wind is at our backs. It's safe to push. It's important that we do. We need to channel the energy of our center-left nation, and achieve the promise, not the compromise. The crisis is great, bold action is needed, and the people are hungry for progressive change.

They're very clearly painting a rosy picture of their chances. But, they do have one growing advantage, and it's one that they're cheering on: the declining numbers of whites in the U.S. First, here's what they say in their PDF, and below that is the same excerpt with the races reversed in order to clearly show who we're dealing with:

America has always been a nation of immigrants, but changing patterns of immigration in recent decades have brought fundamental change to the country's racial makeup. Non-Hispanic whites currently make up 65 percent of the total U.S. population. But this group is growing more slowly than other population groups and consequently becoming a smaller share of the whole. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2030, whites will make up only 55 percent of the total population.

Hispanics are the fastest-growing demographic group. The Pew Research Center projects that this group will increase from 15.3 percent of the population to 29 percent by 2050. Asians, the second fastest growing group, are projected to grow from 5.1 percent to 7.3 percent of the population over this period. African-Americans, although increasing at a much slower rate, will move from 13.5 percent to 14.3 percent of the population during this time. All three of these groups lean strongly Democratic and are increasing their proportion of the population, while the racial group that leans Republican - whites - is decreasing. The Census Bureau projects that whites will dip below 50 percent of the American population in 2042.

Now, here it is switched around:

Swedes are the fastest-growing demographic group. The Pew Research Center projects that this group will increase from 15.3 percent of the population to 29 percent by 2050. Germans, the second fastest growing group, are projected to grow from 5.1 percent to 7.3 percent of the population over this period. Norwegians, although increasing at a much slower rate, will move from 13.5 percent to 14.3 percent of the population during this time. All three of these groups lean strongly Republican and are increasing their proportion of the population, while the racial group that leans Democratic - non-whites - is decreasing. The Census Bureau projects that non-whites will dip below 50 percent of the American population in 2042.
