In the face of adversity and disenfranchisement, immigrant, Black, Brown and working-class citizens turned out in huge numbers in the 2020 presidential election and ensured Joe Biden’s victory.

In key states like Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia, Michigan and Arizona, it was our communities that brought Biden over the finish line.

According to both the American Election Eve Poll and exit polling, roughly 90% of Black voters cast their ballots for Biden.

And, while many have fixated on Trump’s modest improvement from his pitiful performance among Latinos and Latinas in 2016, the reality is that roughly 70% of these voters chose Biden.

Many of those voters — as well as Asian-American voters, 70% of whom supported Biden — are also part of the 23 million naturalized immigrants who were eligible to vote this November and turned out strongly for Biden.
