In the 2020 election, white voters will make up less than 67% of all eligible voters, according to projections made by the Pew Research Center and released this week.  It marks the first time in American political history that white voters are less than seven in 10 of all eligible voters in a presidential election.

At the same time, the white vote has been shrinking as a percentage of the overall electorate while the nonwhite vote has been growing.According to the Pew calculations, those demographic changes will only continue in 2020.
