Immigration and the Anti-Immigrant Voters

The Geography of Trumpism from the New York Times
"One of the strongest predictors of Trump support is the proportion of the population that is native-born. Relatively few people in the places where Trump is strong are immigrants — and, as their answers on their ancestry reveal, they very much wear Americanness on their sleeve."
Think about this stat.  What this reveals is that these people who are rabidly anti-immigrant are actually citizens who have very little contact with actual immigrants! -- Nuggetsman
