Hillary Clinton won't receive the support from the African-American and Hispanic communities that President Barack Obama did in 2008 and 2012, according to a new report.

A New York Times analysis claims Obama was largely helped by voter turnout, not a demographic shift, in the last two presidential elections. Clinton, the Times notes, is not enjoying the same type of support Obama did — and that is why her lead over Republican Donald Trump is not significant. 

The Times examined voter data numbers and found that although the white, non-Hispanic electorate shrank by 7 percentage points between 2000 and 2012, the argument that minority voters helped Obama get elected is a false narrative. Those same voters, however, are not coming out in droves to support Clinton.

In fact, the analysis discovered that Clinton is doing worse than Obama among blacks and Hispanics. And that's despite the fact that the white, non-Hispanic voter demographic is likely around 68 percent, reports the Times.

With Clinton struggling to capture younger voters' support and the Hispanic voting population's youth, the Times surmises this could be one reason why she is lagging behind in this group.

Trump's position as his party's nominee has upended many of the early election predictions and is changing the way Americans vote. Many Republicans have said they will either abstain from voting, will write in someone on their ballot, or will even select Clinton on election day.

Trump has, however, received a lot support from blue-collar voters  — some who have never voted in their life. He's even bringing some Democrats onboard.
