Minority vote key to Trump victory?

According to the exit polls from the CNN websites, President-elect Trump actually did worse among white voters than Romney did in 2012, and white voters comprised a smaller percentage of the electorate than in 2012.

Trump owes his victory to doing better with black, Latino, and Asian voters than Romney did in 2012.

If we believe the exit polls.

My explanation is that minorities are prole, and the proles love Donald Trump.

I previously explained why Trump would do better with blacks./a> Indeed, as far back as August 2015 I noticed Trump’s appeal to blacks. A lot of people didn’t take those two black women on YouTube seriously, or thought it was fake, but I saw it as a sign.

I admit that even I am surprised that Trump did so well with Latinos, and primarily the surprise is because the mainstream media has been telling Latinos for the last year how much Trump hates them. A false narrative for sure, but it’s what the mainstream media was selling.

However I have repeatedly explained on this blog, in other contexts, that Hispanics behave a lot like prole whites, and I’ve also said over and over again that the proles love Donald Trump.

Trump has shown us a new path for Republicans winning the Hispanic vote as well as OTHER minority votes, and it doesn’t have to do with supporting amnesty.

1. Increase Hispanic support by getting them to think of themselves as white Americans instead of a minority.

2. Increase support of ALL minority citizens by protecting their jobs from immigrants. Being anti-immigration is a great message for all non-college-educated Americans regardless of their race.

And don’t forget that Trump was endorsed by Jimmy McMillan, karate expert and founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

  1. first of all, these exit polls make no sense. If whites were a lower percentage of the electorate, how could Trump have a higher vote share than Romney despite winning a lower percentage of the white vote?

    That said, I believe the percentages of how each group voted are basically correct. Trump did better amongst Latinos because he outperformed Romney amongst Cubans and probably PRs. I’m sure he did worse amongst Mex Ams though

    • If Yakov loves Trump, certainly, most Hispanics at least respect him. Most Hispanics love to wheel n deal with seedy yet lucrative transactions if they don’t have a real job.

    • Trump being the first Republican to lose Orange County CA since Alf Landon is probably because he tripped up badly among Mexican Hispanics. It’s sweet poetic justice though, because the OC used to be considered the launchpad of movement conservatism, and if any one person killed that Frankenstein’s monster it’s Donald J. Trump.

    • Because less minorities turned out this time.

      But Obama’s first black man presidency was exceptional and shouldn’t really be used as a yardstick for turnout. The same might be said of Trump in the future though.

    • “… these exit polls make no sense. If whites were a lower percentage of the electorate, how could Trump have a higher vote share than Romney despite winning a lower percentage of the white vote?”

      Exactly! I was trying to puzzle that out last night. The white part of the electorate dropped 2% from 2012, but the exit polls and Romney’s 2012 numbers both list Trump and Romney’s share of the white vote as almost identical. That’s impossible with the win Trump had. I suspect these exit polls are crap and we’ll eventually get some better numbers. The exit polls were wrong on a lot of other points as well, like the 2004 exit polls.

      • It’s confusing.

        But I heard that Trump got 71% of PA white vote, while Romney got 59%. I remember reading Sailer then, and no one could imagine getting more than 59% of the white vote. Seemed impossible.

        He did increase minority voter share, and less of them came out to vote.

        Still, he lost the popular vote by a hair. Unless Hillary is indicted, this will be a problem.

  2. I think I beat to you to the punch that Hispanics are like guidos, and they also vote like prole Jews.

    • Half of Asians have college degrees. The other half are prole.

      • To me, it is prole to graduate from a lower tier or public school.

        I don’t even respect PhDs/academics from most state universities, simply because they reflect the nature of these institutions. They attract students who otherwise can’t afford or wasn’t admitted to a prestigious school.

      • Vietnamese are prole even when they have degrees. Vietnamese are the only non white national ethnic group who break in republican’s favor.

      • Lot of Vietnamese girls are married to white guys too. Vietnamese culture is less formal than Chinese so they have a competitive advantage when it comes to that. Both the Vietnamese girls I went to High School with are married to white guys who are retired Marines and both are extremely pro gun/conservative as a result. The older Vietnamese were Republican because of the War, but with the younger generation interracial marriage is probably the thing helping Republicans the most.

        Trump should make direct outreach to all East Asians during his Presidency. The thing that turns them off about Republicans the most is the heavy handed Christian stuff and Trump obviously isn’t saddled with any of that baggage.

        Do they favor the GOP because of their direct experience of communist revolution?

    • Asians think prole, even well-educated high earners because they didn’t get a degree in postcolonial literature or something.

      Most Asians I know who vote Democrat do so because they perceive Republicans as the unserious, “stupid” party.

  4. #1 is what I’ve been saying the whole time, but the alt-right just doesn’t get it

    • What are you talking about, it’s what Sailer has been saying forever. Run on an American civic nationalism that is inclusive of minorities. That is what Trump did.

      • Steve is pre-alt-right, or at least classical alt-right. People like him have basically been driven from the movement. The white nationalist pepe kinds today won’t even entertain appealing to minorities.

      • Steve is the Alt Right’s number 1 intellectual. He is one of the Alt Right fathers.

    • “1 is what I’ve been saying the whole time, but the alt-right just doesn’t get it”

      ‘Let’s get all the Latinos to vote Republican’ is not that hard to get. It is in fact what many mainstream Republicans have been talking about for ages, is it not? It’s more likely that the alt-right have reservations with the strategy, for the reason that this strategy sounds an awful lot like the usual conservative answer to everything–‘let’s outflank the left on feminism/gay rights/transgenderism/anti-racism’ by doing and saying everything that they do, and then their attacks on us will be nullified’. But of course this strategy brings the obvious problem that if you defeat your enemy by becoming your enemy then what is the point? What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

      If there is any merit to this line of thinking I suppose it is that if anyone could pursue this strategy it would be Donald Trump, because it would have to involve reaching out to the Latinos from a position of strength, which would involve making demands of them–you fullly integrate, no more multiculturalism, no more Spanish language separatism–‘as Americans, everything. As Latinos, nothing.’

      But if you are appealing to them from a position of weakness, as Republicans tend to do, then it is they who will end up changing you, rather than the other way around. After all, if you are appealing to a racial minority specifically, then how do do this without it being somehow at the expense of the majority group? If Latinos only wanted the exact same thing that white America wanted, then they’d be voting like them anyway and there would be no Latino vote to court. It’s a zero sum game.

  5. Many people probably come here to be a part of the United States. Perhaps arguments about too much immigration can gain their sympathy. They want to be a part of us. They don’t want to end us.

    • College professors, the media, Hollywood, corporations and others who comprise the elite want to end us. That’s for sure.

  6. If you break the exit poll down further, Hillary did just as well among black women as Obama. But black men moved from about 90% to 80% Democrat. I didn’t compare the Hispanic numbers.

    I personally feel embarrassed for men who proclaim to have voted for Hillary. Even if I felt that she was the lesser evil, it would still be embarrassing to me as a man to say “I’m with HER!” I think there is something deep in a man’s psyche, in the primate centers of our brains, that revolts against female leadership. We want to be led by a man whom we admire and respect as a role model. This impulse can be suppressed, and sometimes a woman is indeed the best available leader for the situation, but it never quite feels right.

    • In her heyday, there were a lot of conservative men slavering to have their movement led by Sarah Palin. Free Republic from about 2008 to 2010 was maudlin in that regard.

      Richard

    • I predicted that a few black men would not vote for Hillary. I mean, 80% is still quite a lot, but black men weren’t as crazy about Obama as black women were and that was because Obama is married to a black woman..

      In NYC black women put de Blasio in office because he is married to one of them. Bill Thompson, a moderate black Democrat, got the black men’s vote in the primary.

  7. Is anybody else as surprised as me that the Otis Index proved to be this election’s most accurate polling aggregator? It was only off by 0.6 points.

  9. My Mom and Sister disagree on this, but I see Trump as a preservation of the America they immigrated to. They didn’t want to immigrate to fucking Mexico.

    Unless he fucking blows it and completely buckles and only does retarded Republican shit, then I’ll look like an idiot.

  10. Exit polls are supposedly much worse accurately capturing racial split than they are predicting the raw vote totals so I’m not sure why we’d assign credibility to any of these numbers. Examining how Trump did vs Romney in districts with known racial characteristics would probably paint a more accurate picture.

  11. Only white people care about boring stuff like political values and Party manifestos. Non-whites vote according to religion or tribe, or they vote for the big man (or woman). I dare say non-whites don’t even pay much attention to any of the candidates’ speeches about what he intends to do, they just go by a man’s demeanour and how good looking his wife is. This is the future of politics throughout the West as we become more and more enriched with diversity.
