What the Exit Polls Show Us

CNN shows the exit polling for Clinton v. Trump.  29% of Latinos voted for Trump; 53% of white women voted for their supposed enemy, Trump; even 8% of blacks.  43% of college graduattes voted Trump.  All the assumptions of the Democrats and the lamestream media (whoops, I repeat myself) just assumed that women, Latinos, and blacks would never vote for Trump.

Scott Adams (Dilbert's father) points to this article that should drive a stake through the heart of Republicans convinced that Trump's campaign would hurt us with minorities and progressives who insisted that Trump was appealing to white racists:
Now the votes are in, and Trump got greater support from minorities than Romney or McCain before him. You can read the Washington Post article, Trump Got More Votes From People Of Color Than Romney Did, or look at the raw data (source)...
Trump made gains among blacks. He made gains among Latinos. He made gains among Asians. The only major racial group where he didn’t get a gain of greater than 5% was white people. I want to repeat that: the group where Trump’s message resonated least over what we would predict from a generic Republican was the white population.

In other words, we don't need immigration restrictions to defend capitalism.

Huh? Immigration restrictions are to raise wages and employment for legal residents, reduce smuggling of child sex slaves, and reduce criminal imports.
