Polls on white men dating black women
As the dust settled after the extraordinary victory of Donald Trump, a clearer image emerged of those who were responsible for making him President-elect.
By comparison, 80 per cent of black men voted for Hillary Clinton, who also attracted the support of 93 per cent of black women.
Many predicted his remarks would drive women to vote for Ms Clinton and a visible gender gap is seen in the exit poll data, however women's support for the Democrat remained fairly consistent with how they had voted in previous elections.
The gender gap for Ms Clinton – the difference between the number of men who voted for her and the number of women who voted for her – hit 13 percentage points, but Ms Clinton's support support among women was roughly even with the support that women gave Mr Obama in 20.
However, exit poll data collected by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, the Associated Press, CBSNews, CNN, Fox News and NBC News and reported by Mr Trump's graphic and offensive comments about women were well documented throughout his campaign, which threatened to be derailed in October when a tape of Mr Trump seemingly bragging about sexually assaulting women was released.
The education level of voters in the exit poll also shows key trends.
Exit poll data found that 52 per cent of white women voted for Mr Trump, compared with 63 per cent of white men.
In essence, it was white men and women of different incomes who have pushed the most unlikely presidential candidate in a century to the gates of the White House.
But, despite his divisive rhetoric, Mr Trump held on to roughly the same share of Hispanic voters as Mitt Romney claimed four years ago.
He also drew around the same level of support from black voters as Mr Romney won.
