Let’s take a look at the belt of votes who proved to be a major reason behind Trump winning the elections. Here’s a review from a few voters or you could probably call them ‘Team Trump’ now!
Meet the Forgotten People Who Made Donald Trump President

Shannon has never voted before, for her it was never about a Democrat or Republican. It was all about being an American and Trump succeeded convincing her by being a big poster for change, a much needed change. The reason she din’t support Clinton was because she went all the way to appeal the Non-Americans and Immigrants but not Americans!
Darryl Wimbley, 48
After years of service as a salesman, Darryl was now looking to live a good life for himself. He wanted to open his own hot-dog stall too. His reason to choose Trump over Clinton was that in the present scenario it is all about money and business, and America is business. Trump was going to bring in the business change in America
