White Millennials Voted For Donald Trump Over Hillary Clinton

White millennials voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, according to exit polls.

Of white 18-29 year-olds polled, 48% voted for Trump, and just 43% for Clinton.

By contrast, ethnic minority millennials overwhelmingly backed the Democratic candidate. Trump gained just 9% of black votes in that age bracket, and 24% of Latino votes.

This came as a surprise to many pollsters and pundits, who had predicted Trump’s popularity amongst older, white, less-educated men, but not the extent of his appeal to white voters across the board.
