[Comments] When it comes to media coverage of the 2016 presidential election, two candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, have all but dominated the headlines. But we know less about their supporters.

At Qualtrics, we ran a survey to find out who these people are. It turns out Trump supporters are more likely to say they drink Pepsi , attend church regularly, and believe the government regularly covers up things people should know about. Clinton supporters are more likely to report driving foreign cars, being unmarried, and believing the 2016 presidential race will be close. And both Trumpeteers and Clintonians were equally likely to believe aliens have visited the earth.

What else did we discover?

The Future


One of the most common refrains in politics is that tomorrow will be better than today. But most Trump supporters don’t feel that way right now. Only 35% of Trump supporters say they are better off today than they were a year ago. That number goes up to 52% of Clinton supporters.

And what about their children? There isn’t much optimism there among supporters in either camp. When asked if they believe that kids today will be better off financially than their parents, only 28% of Clinton supports said yes. For Trump supporters, fewer than 1 in 5 think today’s kids will be better off than their parents—and not because all of Trump’s supporters are super rich. They aren’t. Less than 15% make over $100,000 a year.
