The drop in unemployment and the modest rise in wages since President Donald Trump took office has benefited supporters of Hillary Clinton more than his, according to analysis by The New York Times.

Wages have increased overall since Trump took office, but the median weekly earnings have increased slightly more for Clinton supporters over Trump supporters, 2.9 percent to 1.8 percent, according to The Upshot.

The unemployment rate is higher for Clinton supporters overall — by a little less than a point — who tend to be younger and less white than Trump supporters.

However, the unemployment rate for Clinton part-time workers who want a full-time job has fallen slightly more than for Trump part-timers, 0.8 points to 0.6, according to the Upshot.

"Only seven months into the new administration, it's far too soon to say whether the Trump years will eventually bring more jobs and higher wages to his base than to his detractors. But so far, the difference in labor market success has, if anything, gone in the opposite direction of the partisan swing in economic confidence," Jed Kolko wrote for the Upshot.
