Iowa and New Hampshire, with their early caucuses and primaries, often play enormous roles in determining our Presidential candidates (as you probably know). Many a Presidential hopeful has resigned after failing to perform well in one of these two states. The demographics of the two states, according to the 2010 census, are thus:
Iowa is 92% white, 3% black and 5% Hispanic.
New Hampshire is 94% white, 1% black and 2% Hispanic.
Nationally, the United States is about 72 % white, 13% black and 16% Hispanic.
The next Republican primary state is Wyoming. It’s demographics are 90% white, less than 1% black and 8% Hispanic.
Food for thought in terms of the representative nature of these critical states in the primary process.
