What We Thought About White Voters

It seems silly now but at the beginning of this cycle the thinking on Hillary Clinton would be that she wouldn't do as well as Barack Obama with Hispanics, Blacks, and young voters because she didn't have his popularity. And she doesn't. But she'd do better with White working class voters, as they went heavily for her husband and the Clintons has a special rapport with working class Whites. Right now Hillary Clinton looks to improve upon Barack Obama's 2012 performance but do worse than he did with working class Whites. We just didn't count on Donald Trump's appeal to them.
