The I-TEAM looked at voter records from the last three presidential elections to get some answers.
We focused on two wards that saw drop offs of about 40 percent, the 111th and 145th. We then talked with more than 20 voters in those wards, like Jasmine Wright.
Like the man on North 26th St. in Ward 111, who said he decided not to vote because "whatever happens is gonna happen." Though he is "not happy with the outcome."
A woman one block over on North 27th Street said she "never voted until the first black president," though this time around -- she stayed home. Her choice was "none of the above."
On his path to victory, Trump won Wisconsin by 22,478 votes.
In the history of statewide elections, that is by no means a big win. But it was enough to earn Trump Wisconsin's ten electoral votes.
At a victory rally last month in Pennsylvania, Trump credited some of his win to democratic apathy.
That includes many African-American voters who came out for Barack Obama, but stayed home for Hillary Clinton.
"They didn't come out to vote for Hillary. They didn't come out. So thank you to the African-American community," Trump told his cheering supporters.
The biggest drop-off came from the heart of Milwaukee's black community, in an area that includes most of Russell Stamper's 15th aldermanic district.
From Locust to Vliet, from highway 43 to 41... Turnout was down 38% from 2012.
The heart of the city's African-American community rallied for Obama, but sat on its hands for Clinton.
Stamper puts that on Clinton -- who did not visit Wisconsin once during the campaign.
"If you want somebody's vote, you have to ask. And I don't know the degree those candidates asked for those people's votes," Stamper said.
If there is a lesson here, it's that black votes matter. Jasmine Wright said that's something candidates need to realize, along with all the voters who stayed home.
"If we, the minority, would have got out, yeah, I don't think [Trump] would have got very far," she said.
