Analysis and takeaways

This election, allied organizations across the progressive movement launched the American Election Eve Poll examining how African American, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latino, Native American and White voters engaged in the 2018 midterm elections. See full results here.

The American Election Eve Poll:

  • Examined how African American, Asian American & Pacific Islander, Latino, Native American, and White voters engaged in the 2018 midterm elections.
  • Focused on six states with competitive elections (Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Texas)
  • Included a national survey of 70 House battleground districts with complete samples of Latino, Asian American & Pacific Islander, African-American, and White voters and a national survey of Native American voters.

A few key takeaways:

Across demographics — Latino, African American, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Native American, and White — voters resoundingly rejected President Trump and the GOP’s closing argument of hostility, racism, and division.

  • Trump and the Republicans are using toxic rhetoric to try and divide us from one another:
    • Latino: 75%
    • African American: 87%
    • Asian American and Pacific Islander: 74%
    • Native American: 69%
    • White:  50%
  • In 2018, many Republicans made attacks on immigrants’ part of their campaigns. It’s obvious we need to reform our immigration policies, but calling immigrants rapists and gang members accomplishes nothing. Congress should work together on bipartisan immigration reform and put the issue to rest, and address important issues like improving wages, lowering the cost of health care so we have more money in our pockets.
