Poll: Nearly half of Trump voters think whites face a lot of discrimination

Most of the nation thinks that black and Muslim Americans face “a lot of discrimination,” but voters who supported Donald Trump don’t agree, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey.

Overall, 64 percent of the nation thinks that Muslim Americans face a lot of discrimination, up 10 points since a survey taken in June. Half say that black Americans face a lot of discrimination, with 44 percent saying the same about Latino Americans, 25 percent about Jewish Americans and 24 percent about white Americans.

Voters who supported Hillary Clinton, however, hold distinctly different views from those who supported Trump.

Clinton supporters are most likely to see Latino, black and Muslim Americans as being targeted, with three-quarters or more saying each of those groups faces a lot of discrimination.
