Those numbers to the right indicate the change in percentage for each category from last year's election. So, Trump got all the 'ethnicity' gains. Interesting how there were 11% more Asians voting Republican this time rather than the last.

That doesn't seem right. For example, that would imply Romney only got 1% of the black vote last time around, but I think he got closer to 6.

This is all bullshit.

I have voted for years and never once did they ask me what my race was on the ballot. When you google my name you get tons of people with the same last name, the majority of whom are black. My family name is majority held by African Americans though I am not one.

I think they take one county and decide the race of votes based on the demographics in the area, which is extremely unscientific.

I don't think they asked the race on the ballot, it was an exit poll which was conducted after they had already voted. Also I agree the sample size was pretty small for this. Taken from the article "Data for 2016 were collected by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, The Associated Press, CBSNews, CNN, Fox News and NBC News. The voter survey is based on questionnaires completed by 24,537 voters leaving 350 voting places throughout the United States on Election Day including 4,398 telephone interviews with early and absentee voters."

I've done polls and some people identify as Jewish as a race, sometimes Asian-Indian prefer their own category as well as anyone who is multiracial "other" as most polls only allow you to select one box. Also you always get the one person who is like "American" which also falls under other.... lol
