Disclaimer: This post was written before the 2016 election results, so was a best guess as to how each group would vote.
In summary, this how many electoral votes Clinton and Trump might get if the following groups were the only ones allowed to vote:
- People of Colour*: Clinton 538, Trump: 0
- Women: Clinton 461, Trump: 71
- College Educated Whites: Clinton 216, Trump: 322
- White Women: Clinton 211, Trump: 327
- White People: Clinton 169, Trump: 369
- Men: Clinton 158, Trump: 350
- Non-College educated Whites: Clinton 64, Trump: 474
- White Men: Clinton 45, Trump: 493
*Note this include all splits by ethnicity, gender and education.
All I can say is thank god US elections are no longer determined by white men.
