"Diversity is an opportunity, not a threat, for America" - CNN.com. 3/29/2016.

In this CNN op ed, William Frey says the Republican presidential candidates are tapping into the discontent of "the older white population - especially less-educated white males whose anger is being courted." But, says Frey, "the demographic reality is that America's youth - and more specifically its racial minority youth - is its future." Frey warns against an election strategy of appealing to older whites as having "limited returns" as this younger minority cohort becomes a larger portion of the electorate.
