How are you, as a voter of colour, weighing who you’ll vote for — or which get together you’ll assist — forward of this yr’s midterm elections?
Too usually, media protection is targeted on suburban voters, which may implicitly — or explicitly — be a stand-in for white, middle-class voters. However we’re curious about seeing what makes voters of colour tick. How are Black voters in Trump nation versus these residing in suburbia deciding who they’ll assist this yr? Are spiritual beliefs or values affecting the vote alternative of Latino voters, who lean Democratic however could be open to socially conservative messaging? And what’s motivating Asian American voters, the county’s fastest growing racial or ethnic group, who are fairly split between the two political parties?
Whereas we all know many of those teams vote overwhelmingly Democratic, it’d be a mistake to color all voters of colour with such a broad brush. Nobody group is a monolith, which is why we wish to unpack how numerous voters of colour — and we all know there are a lot of races and ethnicities we missed above — are occupied with completely different coverage and political points headed into this fall, together with how these points may have an effect on their vote.
To be clear, we’re not attempting to foretell electoral developments and outcomes, however we do hope to inform tales about how completely different voters of colour are processing politics. To inform these tales higher, although, we’d like to listen to from you. Please fill out the survey beneath and inform us just a little bit about your self and why you suppose you’d be an excellent match for this column. We’d get in contact!
