Why didn’t the Edison Research national exit poll ask about religious affiliation this election cycle? It did so in 2016. This time, it only asked about “white evangelical or white born-again Christian” support, something that was also included in 2016 alongside a general breakdown by religion. As was the case with whites in general, Trump’s support among white evangelicals declined from 2016 to 2020. It is likely that his support correspondingly increased with Jews and Muslims over the past four years, another outcome that is ‘problematic’ for the Narrative.

Is that why it was excluded? The idea that asking about sexual orientation, income, race, and gender are not too personal but asking about religious affiliation is doesn’t make sense.

    I can tell you right now that I got the vibe from some uncles and aunties of the community, at times explicitly, that they were wary about the “Hindu” lady. Not sure how much that factored into it.

    I do know that many of the more traditional/conservative ones are worried about the activist nature of a Biden administration; they do not want to be forced to hire gay teachers in Islamic schools or transgender religious directors at the mosques.

    Peace.

  2. Heaven forbid that we get even some partial indicator to separate South Asians from East Asians, however imprecise.

  5. Looking at the Pennsylvania swing map, can absolutely conclude that Trump lost ground there among white Catholics
