Donald Trump Made Gains in Every Demographic Except For White Men

President Donald Trump upped his vote share across demographics in 2020, except for with white men, according to exit polling.

According to Edison Research's exit poll, the Republican incumbent is up with Black men and women, Latino men and women and white women.

With Black men, his vote share went up five percent from 13 percent in 2016 to 18 in 2020, with Black women it doubled from four percent to eight percent.

These demographics still heavily favored the Democratic candidates though, despite Trump's gains, with 80 percent of Black men and 91 percent of Black women asked stating they opted for Biden.

However, polling had suggested prior to the election that Biden might have less support among Black voters than his predecessor Hillary Clinton did.

With Latino men, it increased four percent, from 32 percent to 36 percent, and Latino women was up from 25 percent to 28 percent. These voters still overwhelmingly went for the Democratic ticket, with 61 percent of Latino men and 70 percent of Latino women asked backing Biden.

Latino voters have been seen as one of the reasons Trump was able to secure victory in Florida, which has been called his way, this time out.

With white women the increase was three percent, from 52 percent to 55 percent.

White women were seen as a key focus for Trump in his campaign, with him having spoken of the "suburban housewife" previously and suggesting those he deemed to be in that bracket would vote for him.

However, despite these rises he was down with white men by four percent. Though he still took a majority, according to the exit poll, this was down to 58 percent from 62 percent. Meanwhile Biden's share was at 40 percent compared to 31 percent for Hillary Clinton in 2016. This shift meant the gap cut from 31 points to 13 points between the Republican and the Democrat candidate this time out.

This also reflected an overall loss with not college-educated white voters, down from 67 percent of the vote to 64 percent.

In general, the polling saw Biden build on Clinton's share of the white vote overall by five points.

The Edison Research polling saw 15,590 voters interviewed across the United States. These respondents were quizzed at polling stations, early voting sites and over-the-phone for the 2020 exit poll.

Newsweek has contacted the Trump campaign for comment.
