Trump supporters claim that he bequeathed to the right and the country the makings of a new, multiethnic workers party.
First, contrary to the hype, Trump’s performance with Black voters and even Latino voters wasn’t so earth-shattering.
Exit polls aren’t entirely reliable, but because they’re what many proponents of the new workers party theory are basing their analysis on, they’re worth looking at.
Trump received 12 percent of the Black vote, 32 percent of the Latino vote and 34 percent of the Asian American vote.
In short, the problem with seeing the Trump coalition as the foundation of Trumpism-without-Trump rests on the same misdiagnosis of intellectual Trumpism.
