Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States, and exit polls, which are surveys of voters that are taken after they leave their voting place, show us how this election unfolded. As many expected, Secretary Clinton won the female vote over Donald Trump, and Trump won the male vote. Among white voters, which make up 70 percent of the electorate, Trump won by 21 percent, while Clinton maintained a 53-point advantage among non-white voters. One key demographic that Trump’s campaign had put high priority on throughout this election season was whites without a college degree. This demographic was his base support group, and just as he wanted, they showed up in large numbers, making up 34 percent of all voters, and voted his way by a landslide of 39 percentage points.
