Collin County is a Republican stronghold in presidential and congressional elections. The last Democrat to win the county was Lyndon Johnson in 1964. The factors caused Collin to swing hard to the Republican Party in the 1960s and 1970s: and the expansion of the Dallas suburbs into Collin County. However, since the mid-2010s, Collin County has been slowly moving towards the Democratic Party, particularly in Plano and Frisco. Factors causing this shift include an influx of younger professionals and families, a more diverse population (with increasing numbers of African-Americans along with recent immigrants and their children), and an aversion to Republican Party politics following the 2016 presidential election.
In spite of this shift, Republicans still control every countywide office and all of the overlapping seats in the State Legislature. Congressman Colin Allred, who represents its southern edge as part of the 32nd congressional district, is the only Democrat elected above the municipal level in any part of the county.

From circa 1997 and 2015 the number of non-Hispanic white children in K-12 schools in the county increased by 40,000 as part of a trend of white flight and suburbanization by non-Hispanic white families; however the same number of Plano ISD in particular decreased by 10,000 in that period.
