Biden campaign predictably outstrips Trump campaign on diversity, but still has work to do


Roughly 60% of the U.S. population is white and just over 50% is women, so Biden’s campaign arguably looks like the United States, but it remains somewhat whiter and maler than the Democratic Party.

The Trump campaign has refused to provide full diversity figures, specifically declining to provide race data for all full-time staffers. Just over half of those full-time staffers are women. Among senior staffers, 56% are women and 25% are people of color.

Biden’s campaign is working with the organization Inclusv to increase its diversity. The group’s founder, Alida Garcia, called the campaign’s current numbers a sign “there is a lot of room for growth.”

The campaign released the data after Biden was pressed about the issue on an Asian Pacific Islander American Vote-hosted virtual town hall.
