States of Change: Demographic Shifts and the Future of the Trump Coalition

In partnership with the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program, Public Religion Research Institute, and The Bipartisan Policy Center

The 2016 election defied most expectations. An unorthodox candidate put together an unexpected coalition of states to win the Electoral College while losing the popular vote by almost 3 million votes. As the nation’s demographics change, can this coalition hold together for Republicans in 2020 and beyond? How will shifting views and increased diversity within millennial and post-millennial generations impact the future of U.S. politics?

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center—in partnership with the Center for American Progress, the Brookings Institution, PRRI, and the American Enterprise Institute—for a series of presentations and discussions on the fourth year of the States of Change project. This year’s electoral simulations incorporate data from the 2016 election and chart what electoral possibilities exist for Democrats and Republicans between 2020 and 2036. The report will be presented by Rob Griffin of PRRI, Ruy Teixeira of CAP, and William Frey of Brookings, on a panel moderated by BPC Democracy Project Director John Fortier.
