Are there ANY demographics that have shifted in Trump's direction since 2016?

He got in by the skin of his teeth winning by a few thousand votes in several swing states but since then I don't see any trends that would help him out. Here is a list of how everything has trended:

1. His approval is stuck between 42 and 43% He has lost support since winning.
2. He has lost a lot of older voters because they don't like his handling of Covid19. This is a key GOP demographic.
3. Minorities haven't moved toward him at all and they have increased in numbers compared to whites
4. There are more young voters registered who absolutely despise him and his key demographic which is the very old have had some pass away. Unfortunately, young voters are not that reliable.
5. He has lost a few Republican voters and not gained squat from Dems
6. Migration patterns in the US are really bad news for Trump: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/09/american-migration-patterns-should-terrify-gop/598153/

Please list any others

All I can think of that might help Trump is them fucking with the mail and suppressing the vote.

1. Un/Undereducated white men

Aka, his base. I think he's probably pretty stable with them.

3. But its not like they've just joined..........

they've always been there for BunkerBoy. They may have 4 more little ones at home since the last election, but unless BarrBarrHut allows vote-by-mail for them, there's no gain in that sector.

6. A lot of polling shows he has made minor gains with blacks and hispanics

But these are very minor gains and are overwhelmed by Biden's gain among whites.
