Donald Trump has greater support from people with high school educations and people who make less than $30,000 a year. He has the backing of racists, xenophobes, and people who prefer the moral and social values of the ’50s — especially the parts about women.

But he also has the support of people who know how to manage money. And we’re not talking about millionaires. Two personal finance sites conducted studies that come to the same conclusion: Trump supporters are slightly more credit savvy than Clinton’s.

WalletHub surveyed a nationally representative group online, while Credit Sesame polled its own users. Both also looked at candidates that are no longer running, but now that we’re nearly certain either Trump or Clinton will be our next president, we thought it would be fun to take a closer look at their supporters.

What it all means

None of these stats has much to do with electability, of course. One easy way to tell? Another candidate’s supporters were in a league of their own, with far better credit than Clinton’s, Trump’s, or anybody else’s.

It was the last guy standing against Trump — John Kasich, who only won his home state of Ohio in the Republican primary. A whopping 85.8 percent of his supporters have good or excellent credit. By comparison, only two-thirds of final Clinton rival Bernie Sanders’ supporters have similar credit. (Probably not surprising that the candidate who supports free college and cracking down on lenders attracts supporters with the weakest credit scores.)

Two ways to look at these numbers are age and income. Older Americans have a longer credit history and have had more time to repay debts, so they usually have higher scores. Lower-income Americans have less access to credit and may be more suspicious of non-cash spending. That suggests Kasich had mostly older, wealthier support and the Democrats have more lower-income support, for instance.

Perhaps most interesting is that Clinton supporters tend to have higher credit limits (on average, access to another $1,000) and balances (owing an extra $220). They are also slightly more reliant on credit to get by despite having access to more than Trump’s supporters. The same is true for student loans.

But we wouldn’t read too much into any of it. Here’s one last statistic, from Wallet Hub’s study:  “The average credit score of someone who believes climate change is real is 689, whereas those that do not believe it is have an average credit score of 707.”
