This seems like an illogical conclusion to the data. It’s like the data was looked at with no context. Percentage is one thing, but what about percentage in relation to turnout, and what about turnout in relation to the dissolution of the VRA? 29% of Latinos, or 29% of Hispanics? I’ve seen the latter, and those groups overlap, but are not the same.

This seems like someone trying to argue against the fact that minorities voted overwhelmingly against Trump, and an outsized majority of whites voted for Trump, and Trump ran on racism. It’s hard to accept an argument that just because Hillary didn’t pull Obama numbers, Trump voters weren’t condoning racism.

Or it could be just as easily be said that non-college educated voters are the ones out of touch as they voted for someone who has made it clear he intends to ignore the Constitution which gave rights to ‘those people’.

Education broadens your mind. Trump and his supporters do not have broad minds, or large hearts.

There are other reasons for Trump’s election that have been overlooked by the media. I put my own (woefully derivative) two cents in on that here.

Having read the article now, (and here’s the link) I can see how college education vs only high-school education can be a factor. But by far the strongest statistical correlation to our political divide is urban vs rural. Liberals are mostly living within cities and have proven out-of-touch with, if not outright dismissive of, the problems facing small towns. Whereas Trump told rural Americans what they want to hear, and they’re desperate enough to buy it. He won their votes practically by default.

Read more in the links I left in the post above.

re: #4 EiMitch

Holy crap, it’s like people living in different areas are out of touch with each other. Or are we arguing that people in rural areas don’t have a weird distorted view of the cities, it only goes one way? Fact is, more people live in cities. Hillary won more votes. The system is set up to give an outsized influence to people who live in rural areas. Their votes count more. And basically, they’re stupid. Because I’ll be fucked if I can understand living in Kansas or Wisconsin and then vote Republican. And any answer to it that you can give boils down to ‘we need to center on white christian feelings’, which is the problem in the first place.

That isn’t an article about the election. It’s a plea for affirmative action for conservatives in disguise. See the line where he starts talking about “political minorities.”

re: #5 Bass Reeves

They’re not stupid. They’re desperate. The economic recovery only benefit cities, and passed rural America by. We’ve ignored their problems, and they decided it was time to give “the other guy” a chance.
