After all this talk about record breaking numbers… it was actually the exact opposite. Voter turnout was way down this year, near its lowest point in two decades. Roughly 126 million people voted, meaning that about 55% of voting age citizens cast ballots this year.
That measure of turnout is the lowest in a presidential election since 1996, when 53.5% of voting-age citizens turned out.
But one thing is surely clear…
White people of nearly all ages, genders, and education levels elected Trump. The White vote was nearly 10 percentage points higher than it was in 2008. The only exception was college-educated white women. No surprise there, however, the numbers for Clinton only came in at a mere 51 percent compared to Trumps 45.
Heres the breakdown for WHITES:
White Men (No College Degree)
72% Trump, 23% Clinton
White Men (College Degree)
54% Trump, 39% Clinton
White Women (No College Degree)
62% Trump, 34% Clinton
White Women (College Degree)
45% Trump, 51% Clinton
Young Whites (18-29)
48% Trump, 43% Clinton
Here’s the non-white vote:
For all this outreach and time wasted on so called “Latinos” they only accounted for 11% of the electorate… the same as 2012.
Trump 29%, Clinton 70%
And then we get to the long sought after black vote.
All that work put in by Trump… trips to the black church, conferences with black leaders, all the promises of billions more in spending on the inner cities, the promise of safer neighborhoods… and what does he get?
Trump 8%, Clinton 88%
All in all this was a very tight election folks. Changes must be made, and new strategies must be developed over the next four years in order to sure up more of the white vote!
It’s now clear that non-whites will NEVER crossover to vote Republican, in any kind of significant numbers.
White voters went for Trump over Clinton by 21 percentage points (58% to 37%), according to the exit poll conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool.
That’s a sizable margin, but it’s not nearly as dramatic as the other groups. By 2020 the White vote must come in closer to 65 percent.
There’s no reason it shouldn’t!
If every other group votes as a damn racial block, it’s about time whites do to!
