Let's recall why Trump won in November. He is the first president since 1876 to lose the popular vote by more than 2 percent and still win an electoral college majority. He did so by winning five swing states — Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — with less than 50 percent of the vote. In each case, he attracted large numbers of whites without a college degree who had voted for President Barack Obama twice. Meanwhile, many Republicans who had voted for Sen. John McCain and former Gov. Mitt Romney threw their votes away on write-ins or third-party candidates rather than vote for Hillary Clinton.
