How is it possible that a candidate that can’t get more than a dozen people to show up for a campaign rally, manage to get over 72 million people to show up to vote?
President Trump received 68 million votes from real, live people. That’s 7 million more than in 2016. Trump was able to achieve the increase mainly because of one thing, minority voters.
Hispanics almost single-handedly won Florida for the president. But, where did all the new Democratic voters come from? I think we can all guess the answer to that one. The same way they turned election night defeat in 2018 into a victory a week later as more and more votes were “found.”
This year all of the pollsters and pundits were predicting a blue wave but it turned out not to even be a small trickle. Instead of gaining 5 to 10 new Democratic seats, they will lose five to twelve seats.
There are House members now calling for Pelosi’s head on a platter. They feel like she did not do anything about gaining new seats or protecting old ones.
Edison exit polling found that about 25% of all minority voters selected Trump. That is an amazing number considering that Democrats have been insisting that Trump is a racist for four years now.
But, then again, President Trump has a proven history of helping minorities, which the Democrats do not. The election is over now and Democrats will once again go back to favoring illegal aliens over Americans.
Roughly one quarter of non-white voters cast their ballots for Trump, according to an Edison exit poll. If the poll is an accurate reflection of final results, Trump will have won over more non-white voters than any Republican since Richard Nixon, who won 32 percent of the non-white vote in 1960 but lost to John F. Kennedy. Trump will also have improved on his performance in the 2016 election when he won 21 percent of the non-white vote.
Democrats have attacked Trump as racist, including during the 2016 and 2020 elections. In the wake of the George Floyd demonstrations in late May, Democrats lashed out at Trump’s opposition to removing monuments of Confederate figures and the Confederate flag from public spaces, and have repeatedly invoked Trump’s 2016 comments in which he warned of Mexican “rapists” illegally crossing the border. The president has also opted to call coronavirus the “China virus,” which has unnerved Democrats concerned about anti-Asian racism.
It appears that support among Latinos buoyed Trump victories in several key counties in the Sun Belt. Trump was able to score a win in Zapata County, Texas, by 52-to-47 percent over Joe Biden. The county’s population is 94.7 percent Hispanic, and elected Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016 by 65-32 percent.
