Change in Wisconsin Demographics in Slight Democratic Favor
MONDAY, OCT 19, 2020
Less than six weeks before the 2020 presidential election, Wisconsin and its 10 electoral votes is shaping up as one of the keys to victory for President Donald Trump. The Republican won the state by the narrowest of margins in 2016, a 47-46 percent victory that was decided by less than 25,000 votes.
A Social Explorer analysis of Census Bureau population estimates finds the demographics of the Badger State have changed slightly in favor of Democratic candidates since 2016. The state has added almost 50,000 new residents, including the loss of 2,200 white people. The most newcomers have been Black (5,000), Asian (10,000), and Hispanic (30,000).
