Skip to comments.Trump won because college-educated Americans are out of touch

As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBCs Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism.
But the attempt to make Trumps victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts.
Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who voted for GOP nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. Meanwhile, African Americans did not turn out to vote against Trump. In fact, Trump received a higher percentage of African American votes than Romney did.

Trump won because their is a huge amount of people making political decisions in America contrary to America’s interests.
In BOTH PARTIES.
Everyone is for sale, and supporting the monstrous globalist mess. Everyone.
American voters, said enough.
They are still trying to give the narrative that educated whites did nto vote for Trump . Not true.
Trump won because college-educated Americans are out of work.
Reply from the Smart People: "See, this means people of color can be racist after all!!!!!!11!!!"
Take your ‘fish wrap, crap written’ so called newspaper and use it instead of toilet paper, it would be better for you...
Your nothing but liars, your do not represent the majority of America, as you would know by Wed. Morning when you woke up, if you ever went out into the public...course I understand why you don’t, we would hunt you down and shove this crap down your throat!!!
Nothing to do with college....the demographic was the WORKING middle class and I’d say 35 and up. In other words....the ones who are paying the bills for the leeches.
There! Fixed it.
Glad I got my degree so I could be part of their problem...
College educated morons allowed their pea-sized brains to be filled with satanic mush. They turned their collective backs on God and never learned what America stands for. TRUTH is a foreign concept at our colleges and universities.
Actually I think many college educated people also voted for Trump.
Trump won, because people finally got really tired of the Dem empty promises and lies, while everything was going down the tubes. People finally had enough.
The majority of white males with college degrees voted for Trump. I would bet that if you looked at degrees in hard sciences the difference would be even larger; it is the non-white social justice warriors with soft degrees that cause the large discrepancy in those with college degrees voting for Clinton.
Perhaps the idiots who say and/or write garbage, claiming that it is the uneducated who voted for Trump ( now they raised it to Masters or better degrees, who didn't vote for him ? ) should look at the majors of those who voted for Hillary. Women's, black, Hispanic studies majors aren't just worthless and stupid, but rots the brain and leads on to vote for Dem candidates without being able to "think". LOL
We are now the rhondocollumi.
Idiots and morons all are we.
For those rusty on their Latin (perish the thought):
Rhondo - Latin for red.
Collum - Latin for neck.
If you are educated but you have been decreed to be a redneck just because you voted for Trump, you are a rhondocollum.
The overriding principle for all government should be what is best for the average citizen in an atmosphere of liberty. Not what can be sold to the highest bidder.
Excellent article. And in the WaPo?
Heads will explode.
Dont count out lierals who still are libral but could not get themselves to vote for the person of Hillary. Paticularly those never enthraled with her in the first place, notably the screwed over Bernie supporters.
They ought to have said “college degreed”, not “college educated”. Whether these voters were properly educated is questionable.
Thank you for post #2.
Oh BS. A lot of very highly educated professionals supported Trump.
The out of touch guys are the no skin in the game "intellectual yet idiots"
