Recent commentary on the presidential election has sought to pinpoint where Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost to Republican President-elect Donald Trump. Royal Holloway Doctoral Researcher Rakib Ehsan identifies three key reasons behind the election result: anti-establishment sentiment driving Trump’s vote in traditional Democratic Party strongholds, an Obama-Clinton “enthusiasm gap” among African-Americans, and a better-than-expected Republican showing among Hispanic voters who were treated by many actors as a monolithic bloc.
