WaPo: This new study suggests Trump's racism might actually hurt him

One of the worst mental habits we see among pundits these days is to overexaggerate the role that Donald Trumpís harsh anti-immigration agenda played in his 2016 victory. This isnít just about the past; it also confuses analysis of the present, leading pundits to baselessly presume in advance that President Trumpís immigration attacks will prove fearsomely potent in Novemberís midterms.

A new analysis by two political scientists offers important new data that sheds light on this debate. It suggests Trumpís immigration agenda might have been of negligible importance in his 2016 win, and that Hillary Clinton may have benefited more from the immigration debate than Trump did (that is, despite her electoral-college loss, it actually expanded her popular-vote total).


The new analysis by Howard Lavine and Wendy Rahn of the University of Minnesota looked at 2016 national polling data from the American National Election Studies. They broke down white Americans into three groups: 44 percent of whites are ďanti-immigrationĒ and want lower immigration levels; 40 percent of whites are immigration moderates who want to keep levels the same; and 16 percent of whites are ďpro-immigrationĒ and want immigration increased.
