you want to feel connected, informed, included, on every screen in your life. we are broadcasters; always here for you, wherever here may be. text washington. tell them local stations matter. >> today on a special edition of "matter of fact" -- there's never been an election like this one. michelle there are massive : demographic changes that are happening right now. >> how america's diversity is reshaping the 2016 presidential race. and, it's iowa's turn on the stage, mobilizing and motivating
12:26 am
>> i will be basing my voting decision on economic issues more than social issues. >> we've heard from the candidates, what do voters want most? fernando: hello, i fernando am espuelas. welcome to "matter of fact." america is rich in its diversity, and its demographic shifts will continue to impact elections in years to come as higher percentages ages of asians, hispanics and african-americans vote. just how rapidly are these groups changing the political landscape? i asked michele jawando with the center for american progress. michele: there are massive demographic changes that are happening right now that we have not yet addressed either in our , politics or our policies. for example, for the first time we're seeing that the share of the minority population, so
12:27 am
communities of color -- hispanics, asians, african-americans -- they have madedep 91% of the population growth since 2000. fernando: so out of all population growth, 91% since 2000. michele: communities of color, which is massive. but when you look at their share of eligible voters, it's only about 38%. but that tells us that by 2043 the united states will be majority people e color. depending on where you live, we see regional differences, ideological differences, preferences on religion, education. so there's a lot of information that we're continuing to unpack. but we're excited, because we recognize and we want people to understand that it's not a negative. it's important to recognize that people who live here are a part of the great united states of america, are connected to those
12:28 am
of liberty, pursuit of happiness for all, and those are kind of unique american values we see across communities no matter. fernando: we're obviously in an election year. things are moving very quickly. this demographic shift will have an impact. what are you seeing, and by the way, i should mention the report is a bipartisan report, so it's looking at the full spectrum of voters and preferences and so forth. so what do you expect to happen with this demographic change this year? michele: whether or not you're talking about what your immigration policies are you , must recognize that you're talking to communities of color that will disproportionately have greater connections to immigration stories. so you're seeing lots of first and second generation young people, whether you're talking about african immigrants, carribean, latinos and so it's important to make sure that the way we're seeing some of the rhetoric that's incredibly
12:29 am
american nativism, that will have effects for years to come, really isolating communities who otherwise may be open to different messages. so for instance, a lot of the information that we're seeing speaks to this angst that most people feel about the economic recovery, we see that across demographic lines and races, and so while there may be opportunities for different messages to resonate even among millennials about what we can do to see that everyone does well together, other language will isolate communities who ordinarily might be open to different ideas. fernando: a group that is not often talked about but is very important our -- are single women. what's the story there? michele: for the first time ever, we're seeing unmarried women, 52%, are the majority of eligible voters in the women population.
12:30 am
so that's huge. when we talk about issues like paid family medical leave, when you talk about issues about economic opportunity and the pay gap, that has real consequences for these communities, particularly women who going into retirement tend to have less savings, less capital. there are hundreds of issues that continue to kind of manifest as we look at some of the needs of that community, that we have not yet addressed. so hopefully policy makers will look at the report and hopefully make some changes. fernando: interestingly, the first voting in the presidential election takes place in a small state with less diversity than you'll find in some of america's biggest cities, but iowa is key to the election process. >> coming up on "matter of fact ," the next election is still about the economy. >> they're not hiring like they were 10 years ago, because
