During His Nevada Victory Speech, Trump Professed His Love for the 'Poorly Educated' (VIDEO)

During his victory speech in Nevada last night, Trump was so excited about his 45.9% win, he just wanted to thank the voters. "We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated!"


ABC News reports:

Trump did best among less-educated voters, winning half of those without a college degree, peaking at 57 percent support among those who haven’t gone beyond high school. Trump’s margin narrowed among more-educated voters, down to a far closer 37-31 percent vs. Rubio among those with a postgraduate degree.

The numbers are in line with what Trump's polling across the nation.

Watch: Who did Trump win with in Nevada?

Yes, Bernie Sanders wants to give your children a free college education and Donald Trump wants to… well it's not clear. Last month he said that education in America was "an absolute priority." "I'm a tremendous believer in education," Trump said. 

Watch: Education: Donald J. Trump for President:

Turns out, according to a February 2016 Quinnipiac University poll of the Republican race, Trump is supported by 30 percent of Republican voters with a college degree, more than any other Republican. On the other hand, if 30 percent of college-educated Republicans back Trump, then 70 percent of them don't — which means the vast majority of Republicans with college degrees oppose Donald Trump.
