We're told that minorities, which have lower education levels and few college graduates, overwhelmingly preferred Hillary.

There's just one little problem. Most of them can't be bothered to actually vote on election say.

How do you call that "support?" How would you differentiate that support from outright rejection?

Libs try to disparage Trump supporters as being white with no college degree.

Here's the bottom line: Donald's supporters actually vote. Hill's less educated minorities don't. Seems kind of deplorable, doesn't it?

You think 2016 was bad for the turnout of minorities with no college? Just wait for 2018.

It seems like this rainbow coalition is like the mythical Pot of Gold. Wishful thinking. Because you know what? Those minorities lacking college and often high school diplomas really just don't care.

Well more of them got out to vote for Trump than they did Romney. So there's that.

You may be right, but these people aren't necessarily stupid;They face numerous obstacles to voting, from drugs to unsafe environments to lack of time- many working two jobs, to lack of daycare and just plain despair.

The Dems haven't done anything for them and they've been brainwashed to believe the Repubs would be even worse.

We have a two year window to prove ourselves. Lets hope we get together and change despair to, at least, hope.

Hillary did not visit Wisconsin at all. Chelsea campaigned I believe it was in Milwaukee but received little attention.
Hillary thought she had Wisconsin in the bag, it' a Blue State, you know, no need to waste time and money there. The Union bosses will cover for her.

OTOH Trump campaigned in several Wisconsin cities and received a decent percentage of votes from Milwaukee's Black community.
Also, Pence spent time in Wisconsin being escorted all over the state
by Paul Ryan. They even covered rural and small town Wisconsin.
Trump did not take Wisconsin for granted and no doubt the reason Wisconsin turned Red.
