Poll: Whites becoming more solidly Republican in recent years

SHARE Poll: Whites becoming more solidly Republican in recent years

While party preferences have long been along racial lines, a new Gallup poll shows whites are increasingly favoring the Republican party.

The results are based on yearly aggregates of Gallup poll data since 1995, the first full year that Gallup regularly measured Hispanic ethnicity. For this analysis, Gallup defines whites as non-Hispanic whites, and nonwhites as blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and all other races combined. The net Democratic advantage represents the percentage of each racial/ethnic group identifying as Democratic minus the percentage identifying as Republican. Positive scores indicate that a group is more Democratic than Republican; negative scores indicate the reverse.

Here’s a closer look at the data:
