Description

In Part 2 of our look at the overlooked, yet critical role Native American voters played in Joe Biden’s presidential win, we go to Wisconsin, where Biden won by just 21,000 votes and Native American voter participation helped turn the state blue. Trump won Wisconsin in 2016. We are joined by Burton Warrington, president of Indian Ave Group, who examined the voter turnout in the state and reports on what he found for 2020 and 2018. He is Menominee, Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk. “In Wisconsin, these are tight elections, and with our voting bloc, we can actually swing these elections,” Warrington notes. “Considering the circumstances here, the Native vote really does have the ability, by sheer numbers and mathematics, to actually change the election here.”
