Increased Minority Groups Shake Up US Presidential Race
« on: March 02, 2016, 01:13:29 AM »

The transformation of American politics is happening in miniature about 40 kilometers southwest of Washington, in Prince William County, Virginia.

Corey Stewart chairs the county board. He lives in a historic home where George Washington slept on his honeymoon. Stewart says the house looks a lot like the Founding Father's Mount Vernon manor did before wings were added.

"If you want to see what Mount Vernon originally looked like, come to Bel Air," he said.

Historically, Prince William County has been solidly Republican. Six of the eight county board members are Republicans.

But the party's dominance here could become as much a part of history as Stewart's house.

Increasing diversity

The county is changing. The sprawl of the Washington suburbs surrounds Stewart's home just beyond the tree line. Prince William County's proximity to jobs and relatively low cost of living has drawn minority residents in particular. Hispanics, Asians and African-Americans now outnumber whites.

And those groups don't lean Republican.

"As the county has changed, has become more diverse, you're also looking at a county that has become increasingly Democratic in their political loyalties," said University of Mary Washington political science professor Stephen Farnsworth.
