I would say it breaks down something like this. Not exact, but the general idea.
1) A big chunk of people vote strictly by party, either Republican or Democrat.
2) Issues - they voted on some mix of issues
3) Everyone else
3A) Huge anti-Hillary vote - HUGE
3B) Anti-extremist liberal vote - This vote goes beyond the regular liberal vs conservative vote - it's about the off-the-chart totally crazy extremism that's been happening.
I think 3A and 3B are what swung this election. They are what caused very large numbers of people to show up and vote, and swing it opposite to what all the polls were showing.
The people who vote almost entirely on issues and policies are rarely one issue voters. There are some exceptions, but it's usually looking at the big picture. I'd say that there are extremely few people who voted for Trump for just that one issue. I'd be very surprised if it was as much as 1%. It's probably some very small fraction of a percent.
Keep in mind that party voters are really issue voters, but it's the whole package, not just one issue.
As for myself, Islam was not a factor, not even a small factor. I never even considered it. It's not about Islam anyway, it's about terrorism. I think there is little that a president can do other than what's already being done. I don't really expect Trump to do much differently. He'll get briefed on it and receive reports from the same people who are briefing and sending reports now. He might make some tweaks here and there, but I don't expect any major changes.1
