As California Goes, So Goes the Nation? U.S. Demographic Change and the Role of California in the Nation's Changing Political Landscape

with

Mindy Romero

Director Mindy Romero, California Civic Engagement Project, Center for Regional Change, UC Davis 

Mindy Romero will be presenting new CCEP research that addresses the 1frequent question in the media (and by political analysts elsewhere) of how demographic change in the U.S. will impact the nation's political landscape. For instance, there is speculation about how Latino population growth will impact the 2016 U.S. elections. We saw a similar conversation after the 2012 election where there was a great deal of discussion on how the new larger minority vote possibly impacted the 2012 Presidential race.
This new CCEP research will also discuss what those analyzing theU.S. political landscape can learn from California's demographic change as the state experienced roughly the same levels of racially and diversity (in terms of population proportions) 30 years ago as the U.S. is experiencing now. Dr. Romero will discuss how California is impacting the U.S. electoral landscape currently and how it will do so in the future.
