Fourteen percent of LGBT people admitted to pollsters that they voted for Donald Trump – who has said he thinks businesses should be able to discriminate against LGBT people. Let that sink in for a moment.
Twenty-nine percent of Latinos chose Trump over Clinton. That’s a larger percentage than Mitt Romney got in the last election. Sit with that. Just sit with it.
Forty-two percent of women voted for the man who bragged about using his celebrity status to sexually assault women and described them in the most vulgar and sexist ways possible. It almost seems impossible, doesn’t it?
Forty-five percent of college graduates and 49% of white college graduates picked the candidate who is least experienced and capable of running the American government. What sense does that make? You don’t need a degree to see how stupid that is.
Forty-one percent of people making under $30,000/year, 42% of those with annual incomes between $30,000 – 49,999, and an amazing 50% of those with incomes between $50,000 – $99,999 voted for the man who pledged to raise their taxes to give it to those making millions every year. Why would you choose to take money out of your own pocket to put in some random billionaire’s?
Eighty-one percent of white evangelicals voted for the candidate who literally embodied the seven deadly sins. They said God would work “through him” so it didn’t matter what sins he committed – like allegations of pedophilia, tax dodging, or swindling people.
More Republicans told exit pollsters that they disliked Hillary Clinton more than they liked Donald Trump. Maybe “I don’t really like him either” will salve their conscience.
America has turned itself inside out to elect a con man and racist. That’s not a statistic from the Times. That’s just a fact.
