Demographics Don’t Favor the GOP in Future Elections, Immigration Reform is a Must

Published

on

Demographics are back in the discussion again.

It’s no secret that the nation’s shifting demographics will create new electoral dynamics in America. Breitbart reports that mass legal immigration, which adds 1.2 million foreign nationals to the American population annually, is creating an electoral landscape that will be unfavorable to Republicans in the next few decades.

Axios’ Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen report:

The single biggest threat to Republicans’ long-term viability is demographics.

The numbers simply do not lie. America, as a whole, and swing states, in particular, are growing more diverse, more quickly. There is no way Republicans can change birth rates or curb this trend — and there’s not a single demographic megatrend that favors Republicans.

Certain reports show that the foreign-born voting population is projected to make up approximately ten percent of the voting populace by the 2020 presidential election. In other words, one out of every ten voters will be born outside of the U.S.

America’s legal immigration levels, which have hovered around 800,000 to 1.5 million admissions per year for the last three decades, have made the Hispanic voting population swell to unprecedented numbers. A first in American history, Hispanic Americans will be the largest voting minority in a national election in 2020, overtaking African Americans.

The Atlantic senior editor Ronald Brownstein conducted research revealing that about 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average were claimed by Democrats during election season.

In the same token, less than ten percent of House Republicans represent districts with foreign-born populations greater than 14 percent.

This trend holds with the U.S. Senate as well. Republicans control 30 Senate seats in 20 U.S. states with the smallest foreign-born populations. On the other hand, Democrats hold 32 Senate seats in the 20 U.S. states with the largest percentages of foreign-born residents.

For the GOP’s electoral survival, bold immigration reform is needed. That means tightening up pathways to citizenship, ending chain migration, and going towards a merit-based system of immigration.

The stakes are too high to keep the current immigration system intact, especially in the context of the welfare state. Such mass migration patterns could produce toxic social outcomes and lead to potential political instability for future generations.

That’s why immigration is the #1 issue for most Republican voters.

Not only will Trump need to obviously secure victory in 2020, but he will need strong support on immigration reform in both chambers of the U.S. Congress.

The fight to bring real immigration reform to D.C. is just getting started.

OPINION: Joe Biden is Too Old to Be President

He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day, by far.

Joe Biden is too old to serve as President of the United States.

He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day. By far. President Trump currently holds the record for the oldest President to be sworn in, entering office at the age of 70.

Biden would smash that record by almost a decade, assuming the presidency at the ripe age of 78 in the event of a November victory. He’s 77 right now and turns 78 in late November. President Trump is a full presidential term younger than Biden, and would stand to leave office in 2025 at roughly the approximate age that Joe Biden is now.

No President has even served in the office in their 80’s. Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan left office at the ages of 70 and 77 respectively, with the natural process of aging beginning to show itself at the end of the Gipper’s second term. American Presidents have generally left office in their early-to-mid 60’s or even fifties, a pattern that endures even into the late 20th century when advancements in medicine considerably increased the life expectancy of Americans.

Some commentators have lamented that the 2020 election is a final showdown between politicians of the Baby Boomer generation. But that analysis ignores that Joe Biden is actually too old to qualify as a Baby Boomer, having been born in 1942, making him a member of the Silent Generation.

The argument for Biden’s advanced age as a disqualifier stands independently of the former Vice President and career politician’s serious, enduring and consistent indications of cognitive decline. Even the healthiest of individuals in Biden’s age demographic are often and suddenly liable to health challenges, a burden that would be improper to place upon Biden and the American public.

Opposing Biden’s candidacy on the basis of his age is not a slight to senior Americans. Many Americans of his age demographic would admit their sharpest years are behind them. There’s a reason why tens of millions and Americans have saved and worked for decades for purposes of retirement in their elder years, and why American society is broadly supportive of Social Security benefits that enable our elders to enjoy the lifestyle they deserve in their 70’s and 80’s.

Joe Biden is too old to be President.
