This article explains the issue that the urban Minangkabau ethnic group discussed in the political conversation in the coffee shop after Jokowi is defeat. Although defeated in West Sumatra, but Jokowi-Ma'ruf Amin won at the national level. In the 2014 elections, Jokowi received 23.18 percent in West Sumatra. While in the 2019 elections, the vote fell to 14.1 percent. Many strategic development programs have been carried out by the Jokowi Government for the people of West Sumatra. However, his vote acquisition in the elections contrasted with his efforts to get ethnic Minangkabau support. This article is the result of field research. Quantitative data was collected through a survey of 100 respondents and followed by a semi-structured interview of 30 of those surveyed. This interview aims to get more in-depth information related to the political discussion they are doing. The results of this study found that political discussion is the basis for the urban Minangkabau community to obtain information before making political decisions as well as being the basis for comparing political choices made with their discussion partners.
