NBC News Exit Poll: Majorities of Non-White Voters Express Profound Concerns about a Trump Presidency

If Donald Trump is elected president, he will encounter a divided nation where many Americans are deeply troubled about what his presidency will mean. According to the NBC News Exit Poll, two-thirds or more of Asian, black and Hispanic voters have profound reservations about Trump as the next U.S. President. Indeed, more than two-thirds of blacks and 45 percent of Hispanics admit being “scared” about Trump winning the election. 

The feelings of white voters about Trump being elected are more split. Though only 15 percent are “excited” about Trump being elected, an additional third are optimistic. The other half of white voters is expressing alarm, including three in 10 indicating saying they are “scared” about a Trump presidency.
