A week after the 2020 presidential election, one thing is obvious about the United States of America: It is deeply divided.
With 148 million votes counted, President Donald Trump trailed former Vice President Joe Biden by about 4.7 million votes.
But, according to the exit polls, there were some demographic groups that did pick Trump over Biden.
Who were they?
For starters, according to the network exit poll published by ABC News, there was the divide between people who worked full time and those who did not.
The exit poll asked the question: “Do you work full-time for pay?”
Voters who said no went for Biden over Trump by 57% to 42%. By contrast, voters who said they did work full time picked Trump over Biden 51% to 47%.
Why do people who don’t work full time prefer Biden? Why do those who do prefer Trump?
Is it a good sign for the long-term well-being of the United States that the popular-vote winner in our presidential election was preferred by those who do not work full time and not by those who do?
Then there was the divide between married and unmarried people. The exit poll asked voters: “Are you currently married?”
