This is so personally devastating to me: the black male vote for Trump INCREASED from 13% in 2016 to 18% this year. The black female vote for Trump doubled from 4% in 2016 to 8% this year. pic.twitter.com/PvIM26Pz19— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 4, 2020
Also, once again, exit polls show a majority of white women voting for Trump. (Important note: Pew analysis of actual votes in 2016 showed that it wasn’t a majority but was a plurality.)— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 4, 2020
Also, the percentage of LGBT voting for Trump doubled from 2016. DOUBLED!!! This is why LGBT people of color don’t really trust the white gays. Yes, I said what I said. Period. pic.twitter.com/4SS4c4z76f— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 4, 2020
Also, the percentage of Latinos and Asians voting for Trump INCREASED from 2016, according to exit polls. Yet more evidence that we can’t depend on the “browning of America” to dismantle white supremacy and erase anti-blackness. pic.twitter.com/yiHDpFdRXB— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 4, 2020
The evidence is piling up that Donald Trump gained ground over 2016 with every demographic group in America EXCEPT White men. He is struggling because of his base.
Imagine that … the media narrative was completely wrong. The real story of the election is that Donald Trump was attractive to LGBTs and non-Whites, particularly to Hispanics, but was such an enormous disappointment for “white supremacists” and populist voters that they abandoned him.
Donald Trump and the GOP never did anything to hold the people who were responsible for putting them in power in 2016 in the first place.
Note: In the podcast that I did with Richard Spencer, I said that my views were in the dead center of the electorate and predicted that Donald Trump was losing ground with voters like me … White men who are moderate, populist and nationalist swing voters who dislike mainstream conservatism and who are racially conscious. I’m “far right” in the sense that my views are in the middle of the electorate.
