In research that surprises absolutely no one, President-elect Donald Trump received minimal support from minority voters, according to a new study conducted by Reuters, The Huffington Post reports.
According to the poll, Trump won the presidency with less support from Black and Hispanic voters in at least the last 40 years, shedding light on the divisive and polarizing campaign Trump rode into the presidency on.
Though he has publicly denounced White nationalists, he consistently uses language and tactics that say otherwise. It hasn’t stopped the groups from aligning themselves with him and the platform he runs on to “Make America Great Again.”
He secured 8 percent of the Black vote, 28 percent of the Hispanic vote, and 27 percent of the Asian-American vote, according to the Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll.
“Among black voters, his showing was comparable to the 9 percent captured by George W. Bush in 2000 and Ronald Reagan in 1984,” according to HuffPo. They both did better among Hispanic voters with 34 percent and 35 percent, respectively, according to exit polling data. Trump fared badly with Asian American voters, The Huffington Post reports, “his performance was the worst of any winning presidential candidate since tracking of that demographic began in 1992.”
Trump’s anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, xenophobic, misogynistic rhetoric no doubt awakened a deep-seated divide that exists in America. According to The Huffington Post, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported 701 incidents of “hateful harassment and intimidation” between November 9 and November 16.
