Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In addition to the rapid demographic change Democrats have been aggressively organizing and registering voters among the Latinx and Native American populations. Few of these potential voters had bothered to register before 2008. It seemed there was no point, given how right wing the state had been, (except for Pima County and Tuscon). Thus, with Trump's harsh anti-immigrant and specifically anti Mexican rhetoric and the growing number of potential unregistered voters, a latent potential became actualized, transforming Arizona politics in the process.
