About The Data

The new Hispanic and Asian voters detailed here are made up of newly naturalized immigrants, Hispanic and Asian citizens turning age 18, and individuals who were eligible but not registered to vote in 2012.

In the customizable scenario, "LOW" turnout is equivalent to the Hispanic and Asian voter turnout in 2012 and "HIGH" turnout is equivalent to the white voter turnout in 2012.

The slider reflects the national level of support for Republicans in 2016 or 2020. Our model assigns varying levels of support to individual states, based on how much more or less they supported Republicans than the national average in 2012.
