The results for the 2020 Census are out on Thursday showed that America becomes more diverse as the White population decreased. Whites, who made up 63.7% of the total population of America in 2010, go down to only 57.8%, as stated from the latest census — shrinking by about 6%. Other races in the United States include Hispanics and Asians, slightly grew more population in the country.
For the Democratic Party, the results might seem like an advantage – for the population in urban or metropolitan areas increased. In The Cook Political Report, “Democrats have to be pretty happy with today’s results,” told David Wasserman.

It is important to note that the Republican Party may take over more power in America due to an increase in the seats in the House of Representatives. There will be two additional seats in Texas and one seat more for the following states: Florida, North Carolina, Colorado, Oregon, and Montana.
