POLL: Trump Attracted Lantos In Ways The GOP Didn't Think Was Possible

POLL: Trump Attracted Lantos In Ways The GOP Didn't Think Was Possible

Exits polls published by CNN suggest that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumpdid better among Latino voters than his party’s 2012 nominee, Mitt Romney. Trump lost the Latino vote to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by a 29 percent-65 percent margin. That is significantly better than Romney did when he lost that demographic group to President Obamaby a 27 percent-71 percent margin.

Trump was expected to do poorly among Latinos. He not only opposed immigration reform but promised to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. He was widely criticized for his rhetoric on the issue, stating, for example, at his campaign launch that “rapists” were immigrating from Mexico. Liberal leaders like the AFL-CIO’s Richard Trumka denounced him as a racist. Romney eschewed such rhetoric though he also opposed immigration reform, calling for illegal immigrants to “self-deport.”

Clinton Supporters Are In Utter Shock

Clinton Supporters Are In Utter Shock

Thousands of Hillary Clinton supporters who flooded the glass-ceilinged Javits Center Tuesday to watch their candidate become the first woman to be elected president Tuesday night were beginning to show sharp signs of concern as they watched Trump pick up several battleground states on the big screen. The crowd was nearly silent as they listened to MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki map out Trump’s path to victory — if he takes Michigan and Florida. The Sunshine State has since been called for Trump. Quickly, the channel cut out and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo took the stage, saying it’s fitting that Clinton will be elected president in New York, “the birthplace of the women’s rights movement.” “It’s shocking. I can’t believe it’s this close. I’m shocked,” said Terri, a supporter from Washington, D.C., who didn’t want to use her last name.

He held a lead of about 75,000 votes in the Badger State.
