A new analysis offers hope for Donald Trump supporters who are concerned that he might continue to alienate himself among nonwhite voters.
The New York Times cites an analysis by The Upshot suggesting there may be enough white voters to elevate Trump.
The analysis “shows that millions more white, older working-class voters went to the polls in 2012 than was found by exit polls on Election Day. This raises the prospect that Mr. Trump has a larger pool of potential voters than generally believed,” The Times reports.
The report adds: “The wider path may help explain why Mr. Trump is competitive in early general election surveys against Hillary Clinton. And it calls into question the prevailing demographic explanation of recent elections, which held that Barack Obama did very poorly among whites and won only because young and minority voters turned out in record numbers.”
