A big part of the story is that Hillary Clinton did much worse among minorities than Obama did... Not only was her share of the minority vote worse than Obama’s, but minorities turned out less for her than they had for him.

Throughout 2016, pundits were reasonably certain that Hillary Clinton would beat Donald Trump. But they were even more certain about one thing: that Trump’s rhetoric would alienate minorities to an unprecedented degree. In what is arguably the biggest surprise of 2016, that didn’t happen. Indeed, Donald Trump outperformed Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign on minority vote share.... Trump captured 8 percent of the black vote, 29 percent of the Latino vote, and 29 percent of the Asian vote.
