A massive shift in demographics is shaping the future of the American electorate, but the Republican candidates seem to be unaware of the implications. This is the case put forward by Stanley Greenberg in his article, “I’ve Seen America’s Future and it’s not Republican.” Greenberg notes how disconnected the candidates seem to be from the core of voter attitudes. He observes that the America of today is not like it was, especially with the cultural influence of millennials and an enormous influx of foreign-born residents. Greenberg says that the core electorate has become secular and more racially and culturally blended, forming a new political identity, the beginnings of which could already be seen as early as 2004. Greenberg suggests that Republicans may be able to hold on to a few conservative sectors in the country, but it will not be enough to elect a Republican president.
