WASHINGTON - Voters over age 65 that didn't attend college like Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton by 49 to 33 percent, a new poll released Thursday by Morning Consult says.
Trump once said, “I love the poorly educated,” and according to the survey, they favor him, too. Among the entire population of those who did not attend college, Trump led Clinton by only 1 point during the survey period, 41 percent to 40 percent.
More than three-quarters of voters – 77 percent – without college degrees said the country is on the wrong track, the highest percentage among all income levels. About a third of them (31 percent) list economic issues as their top concern.
Among those with bachelor's degrees, Clinton leads Trump, 45 to 40 percent. Clinton's biggest lead comes from those between the ages of 18 and 34 who have graduated college: 54 percent said they support Clinton compared to the 30 percent who support Trump.
Meanwhile, the poll shows Trump leading Clinton, 49 to 33, percent among voters over the age of 65 who did not attend college.
Of all surveyed, Trump led Clinton by 1 point among those who did not attend college, 41 to 40 percent.
