As we continue to sift through the rubble of the 2020 election to figure out what went wrong, the story isn’t changing much across multiple exit polls.
“Some of this gain comes from Biden’s inroads into Trump’s margins with White men. Mr. Trump won White men by 31 points in 2016, but that margin was cut to 18 points this year. Nationally, White men with college degrees have swung from a 14-point margin for Mr. Trump in 2016 to about even now. The president had a two-point edge this year. This group has a more favorable view of Biden than they do of Mr. Trump.
White men without college degrees were a big part of the Trump coalition, and they continued to back him by wide margins. But in Michigan and Wisconsin, states that Biden flipped from red to blue, Biden’s vote share with this group was roughly 10 points higher than Clinton’s. …”
Moderate and populist voters.
College educated voters in the suburbs.
White male seniors over the age of 65 in swing states.
COVID-19 was far and away the biggest issue in the election.
Those who wanted to die on the hill of COVID-19 being an elaborate conspiracy and hoax died on that hill by alienating elderly White men in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona.
Come on, man.
Those people are all White Catholic Democrats who are a throwback to another age … like this dinosaur who is running for the U.S. Senate.
