Frey says politics are being reshaped by four demographic trends in the U.S.

a PSC In The News reference, 2014

"For GOP, demographic opportunities, challenges await" - Washington Post. 11/29/2014.

This piece cites four broad population shifts described by William Frey that may alter the electoral map of the U.S. to the disadvantage of Republicans. But trends in age, race, and ethnicity across geography will require responsiveness from both political parties, says Frey. "In the longer term, [Republicans] absolutely have to be much more open to minorities," he says. However, "each party has to find ways to compete for both younger and older voting blocs in future presidential elections."
