"Newly naturalized citizens in ten states have the power to elect the next President of the United States. In these states--Michigan, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas--when compared to the margin of victory for the 2016 presidential election, New American Voters have the largest likelihood of tipping the scale and being the decider of who will occupy the White House for the next four years. This multi-racial, multi-generational, and slightly majoritywomen group of naturalized citizens represent a potential voting bloc that can also decide who controls the U.S. Senate by voting in states like Arizona, North Carolina, Colorado, Maine, Michigan and Georgia."
