A recent study revealed that a significant number of voters who supported Donald Trump apparently do not think it was the blacks, Muslim Americans and other minorities who were being discriminated against.

According to the survey conducted by The Huffington Post and international research firm YouGov, almost half of Trump supporters believed that white people were now facing discrimination.

Compared to the overall view, however, the figure was quite the opposite.

The report showed that 64 % of the nation thought it was the Muslim Americans who face a lot of discrimination, a 10-point rise from a similar survey taken in June.

Half the country sees that African Americans faced a lot of discrimination, while 44 % say the same thing about Latino Americans.

A quarter of Americans think Jewish Americans were being treated unfairly while 24 % say white Americans were also being discriminated against.

What was also made clear in the survey was how voters supporting Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump held distinctly different views from each other.

When figures between supporters were separated, the study revealed that more that 75% of Clinton supporters view that the Latino, black and Muslim Americans faced discrimination.

The poll was based on 1,000 completed interviews which were conducted by the research groups from Nov. 19-21 among U.S. adults, “using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.”
