According to a poll conducted on Tuesday by the New York Times and Siena College and published on Tuesday, white voters with college degrees are more likely than minority voters to support the Democratic Party.
57 percent of white voters with a bachelor's degree, according to the poll, want Democrats to control Congress after the 2022 elections, while only 36 percent want Republicans to do so. The poll found that while Hispanics are divided on which party should control Congress, non-Hispanic and non-black minorities support Republican control of Congress by a margin of 39 percent to 34 percent. Republicans, meantime, are making progress with ethnic voters. The preferences of Hispanics for which party should control Congress are largely divided.
Despite receiving support from Hispanic voters by a margin of almost 50 points, the Democratic Party reportedly lost support from white voters with college degrees in 2018, according to Axios. The behavior in question, according to Axios, is a "seismic change" that is realigning American politics.
The move reflects Democrats' greater focus on social issues including immigration, LGBT rights, affirmative action, abortion, and others, says Nate Cohn, senior political analyst for The New York Times. According to Cohn, this social liberalism repels more culturally conservative working-class voters of all races, whereas progressive college graduates are drawn to the party due to its appeal to social liberalism.
Black voters are the only minority group that has consistently supported the Democratic Party, according to the study data.
