  •  San Joaquin County (1+ / 0-)

    Also had a large minority population which until recently did not have high enough turnout rates. In 2004, Bush won 53% of the vote in San Joaquin County but in 2012, Romney won only 42% and even McCain performed better than Romney in San Joaquin County.

    Stanislaus County actually does not have a very large minority population compared to San Joaquin County.

    •  stanislaus county 2011 census (0+ / 0-)

      non-hispanic white: 46%
      hispanic/latino: 43%
      asian: 6%
      multiracial: 4%
      black: 3%
      native american: 2%

      so yes, whiter than san joaquin (which has higher % of asians (16%)  and blacks (8%)), but still majority-minority in terms of population. of the 28% of the county under 18, i would be willing to bet that a significantly larger proportion are "minorities" (an ironic word in contemporary california).

      nearly every county in the central valley has a significant minority population, that is weighted towards the young and growing fast. shasta and tehama county are about the only overwhelmingly white counties left in the valley.

      •  Agreed (0+ / 0-)

        That Stanislaus County has a large minority population, just not as large as San Joaquin's where the non Hispanic White population is below 40%
