Data impresario Zach Goldberg (“PhD student/Wokeness Studies scholar”) has assembled a series of graphs collating the results of several polls of American attitudes to Corona.
There’s nothing particularly unexpected. It confirms other polls (e.g. PEW, SurveyUSA) showing a large partisan divide in attitudes towards Corona. Democrats anxious, angry, depressed, and skeptical about Trump’s ability to handle the epidemic, whereas our girl leaves conservatives unflustered.
However, there was one particularly amusing item – a test of coronavirus general knowledge, broken down by race.
That B/W Corona-g gap at 0.8 d, reliable as always! 😉
However, contrary to the usual pattern, Whites do better than Asian-Americans. Care to guess why?
Here’s the list of questions:
Asians answered 1b, in the mistaken belief that experts recommend wearing masks.
And it is indeed what Asian experts are telling people.
Unfortunately, Asian-Americans didn’t account for US “experts” from the CDC and the Surgeon-General to multiple MSM outlets running a disinformation campaign about the efficacy of masks.
On this question, Asians (50%) not only did “worse” than Whites (77%), but Blacks (55%) and Hispanics (52%) as well.
