Using the The Cook Political Report’s nifty Swingometer, 2020 Electoral College results if only whites without college degrees voted:

To those lacking both melanin and credentials, a reminder you didn’t need that the establishment really, really hates you:

In 2016, college-educated whites narrowly favored Trump over Clinton, 48%-45%, but polling suggests Biden will be able to overcome Trump’s edge this time around. Results if only whites with college degrees voted:

Though Trump appears to be doing worse with whites and better with non-whites than generic Republicans do, if only whites of all levels of educational attainment voted he would still enjoy an electoral landslide:

On the other hand, if people of color were given exclusive control of the outcome, Biden would turn Jeb Bush’s pipe dream into reality:

Speaking of electoral landslides, if the 2020 election were occurring with the nation’s demographics in 1984, a Trumpslide would indeed be on the horizon:

Apropos a recent post about the confidence Trump voters have in the president’s reelection chances, this goes a long way in explaining why so many Boomers think he’ll waltz into a second term. If the country looked like it did when they were settling into adulthood, he would. But it doesn’t, so he won’t.

At least it will look like a contest. If the country’s contemporary demographics looked like they’re projected to in 2036, the result would be a Biden blowout:

Reorienting on the present and within the confines of reality, if the combined efforts of Kanye West, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, and Candace Owens manage to get Blexit off the ground to such an extent that Trump garners 12% of the black vote while non-black support remains constant, the president will get four more years:

This outcome would cause Narrative writers’ heads to explode. Sadly, it’s unlikely to occur.

  1. It kind of makes me wonder if the push to get people to go to college was to raise the floor that democrats could have among white voters. It used to be that being in a labor union raised that floor. Now it’s a college education. In some ways College Educated Voters (CEVs) are more compliant than labor union voters (LUVs) because LUVs would sometimes defect over environmental overregulation or gun control. CEVs aren’t as bothered by those issues.

    College education makes students brainwashed, in debt, out of marriage, and subsidizing the University-Industrial-Complex.

    Considering the relative intensity of Trump supporters seen at rallies and that of Biden’s, it’s not as crazy as you think. If most blacks find Biden a bore not worth rising from the couch for, Trump will easily increase his black percentage, simply by turnout default.

    Unless those guys at his rallies all have felonies on their records.

    I don't think it's blackpilling. That last map, showing a real move in black voter support, suggests a possibility of a win that is plausible, and also a way out of the demographic cul de sac the R's find themselves in.

    LoOk up the Simpson-Mazzoli bill. Had they actually cut down immigration then, they might be competitive now. But donations from large Republican farmers in California and gutting the unions was more important. Well, great: with the Janus decision, they've really got the unions on the run now. Of course, we are almost all on the run.

    This is normie Boomer talk, and AE was right to frame it as such.

    I just don't get where the whitepilling comes from in what's supposed to be a reality-based community. Everyone here is supposed to understand, at minimum, that demographics are giving the Dems about +2% every 4 years, that C'thulhu always swims left, and that media and academia collaborate to indoctrinate the youth and undermine Trump at every possible opportunity.

    Let's throw in the fact that Biden has much higher favorability ratings than Clinton, and that Trump has clearly failed to expand his popularity beyond his base -- all he can hope to do is go negative on "the Devil you don't know".

    Yes, perhaps the polls are all wrong, perhaps there's a vast conspiracy and every poll taker is in on it. But imagine, for a moment, that Trump really was going to lose badly. How would that look any different? And the early voting data doesn't help Trump -- what's mostly going to happen is independents swinging against Trump, but he might well do worse among Republicans as well. What the early voting does show is this is going to be a high turnout election, which is almost always bad for Republicans.

    Every time I see something like this, my hatred – yes, hatred – of the people in the Establishment increases more and more. And I am actually a highly credentialed Ivy Leaguer whose IQ is likely substantially higher than the likes of Don Lemon (let alone in geography)!

    Colleges should be required to find graduates a job in their field of study for a 5 year period after graduation. That requirement alone would get rid of the majority of the basket weaving degrees.

    If the graduate is unemployable in his field, then the college should be required to refund 5 times the student's total tuition as remuneration for the fraud the college perpetrated and to provide the former student with a cushion to restart his/her life.

    But the Germans, in this case, are right in a certain sense. Germany, like the rest of Europe, does have a really ugly population pyramid---an aging and shrinking workforce that is being kept up (and even then not successfully) only by immigration. If Germany wants to maintain its current level of economic activity, then it will have to magically pull more workers from somewhere. They think immigration will square that circle for them, but they have not yet digested the idea that third world shitholers are not a substitute for highly skilled Germans and only make the problem worse.

    The silver lining here is that immigrants, once imported, do not maintain the fecundity they had in their native lands. They become assimilated to the worst aspects of Western dysfunction, becoming infertile progressives and parasites. In this manner the sending countries are drained of their more energetic, intelligent, wealthy, and promising elements until they can't send anymore. It appears we've reached just this sort of immigration equilibrium with Mexico. There are still people coming over the border, but there is no net immigration any longer because Mexican TFR has gone way, way down. The world has already reached Peak Mexican even if the United States has yet to see Peak Hispanic.

    That last scenario looks ominous. A narrow Trump win in the Electoral College, along with a 4 million deficit in the popular vote, will guarantee more mass protests/riots. Followed by Trump's 3 million vote deficit (if you believe the numbers) against Hillary, half the country will continue to believe that Trump is an illegitimate president. There will be more and more strident demands to eliminate the "racist" EC. If Trump thinks he was unfairly pilloried in his first term (which he was), imagine what he would be up against if the democrats win both Houses?

    OTOH, from what I've read elsewhere, Trump may easily garner far in excess of 12% of the black vote, especially due to growing support from black men. I've read that it could be as high as 40% or more, which sounds like wishful thinking. The same situation applies to the Hispanic vote. If Trump even approaches that 40% number, it could be a landslide win in the EC, along with a narrow popular vote victory.

    An overlooked fly in the ointment could be Kanye West. I just checked. He is on the ballot in 11 states, and at least one poll reported he is polling at 2% nationwide. If that pans out and he takes most of those votes from Trump, he could wind up electing pro-abortion Biden. That would be so ironic as Kanye has made his opposition to abortion a major issue in his campaign.

    I’ve had too many ears full of Germans telling me they need migrants to do these things, including skilled office work, because there is a shortage of qualified workers in Germany.
     
    But the Germans, in this case, are right in a certain sense. Germany, like the rest of Europe, does have a really ugly population pyramid---an aging and shrinking workforce that is being kept up (and even then not successfully) only by immigration. If Germany wants to maintain its current level of economic activity, then it will have to magically pull more workers from somewhere. They think immigration will square that circle for them, but they have not yet digested the idea that third world shitholers are not a substitute for highly skilled Germans and only make the problem worse.

    The silver lining here is that immigrants, once imported, do not maintain the fecundity they had in their native lands. They become assimilated to the worst aspects of Western dysfunction, becoming infertile progressives and parasites. In this manner the sending countries are drained of their more energetic, intelligent, wealthy, and promising elements until they can't send anymore. It appears we've reached just this sort of immigration equilibrium with Mexico. There are still people coming over the border, but there is no net immigration any longer because Mexican TFR has gone way, way down.

    Since these men are here, obviously their father and grandfathers were able to find someone to have children with. It's doubtful they are much different than previous generations of males in their family so if they can't find someone then maybe the problem is not with them.

    It may be difficult now to reconstitute marriage as a widespread institution. It used to be very common for mothers to give daughters advice on how to have a good marriage and the same thing with fathers and sons. My parents were married forty years and I got advice from my dad on how to have a successful long term marriage. Now large numbers of parents can't give their children marriage advice since they were never married themselves. This knowledge has been lost.

  43. It does seem that if you want to get a Biden win out of poll sampling, you have to sample more Democrats, sample registered voters but not necessarily those likely to vote, and then you sample more women. Women with college degrees, especially white young women, go for Biden 60 to 40, and they are voting. They believe the fake story that the Democratic Party cares about women’s rights, which it does not. The Democratic Party is like the Communist Party, they vote as a block on the command of the upper elites, and they are oblivious to their constituents once they get in power. They have these hidden agendas controlled by outsiders like Bill Gates, or UN Agenda 2030, it’s secretive, it takes detective work to figure it out. Biden voters in this election haven’t a clue what the Democratic Party does or doesn’t do, or even what Biden says. They haven’t heard about Joe’s hairy legs that turn blond in the sun, or his mixing up the wars in Iraq and Afganistan, or not knowing that Bolivia and Venezuela don’t share a border, or even that in three speeches he said he was running for the Senate. These young women are too exhausted from working and raising kids to pay attention, but they know that voting is important so they go out and vote based on Facebook and Instagram. They don’t want to be rejected because they voted for Trump–clueless Joe and his clueless voters, who don’t show up at the rallies because isn’t voting enough….give me a break.

    You need to remember that 19th century and early 20th century progressives were very very keen on introducing countless new laws and new regulations to control people's lives.

    Prohibition of drugs was one of the many things that was driven by the ceaseless moral panics of the 19th and 20th centuries. And progressives in those days loved moral panics.

    That last scenario looks ominous. A narrow Trump win in the Electoral College, along with a 4 million deficit in the popular vote, will guarantee more mass protests/riots. Followed by Trump's 3 million vote deficit (if you believe the numbers) against Hillary, half the country will continue to believe that Trump is an illegitimate president. There will be more and more strident demands to eliminate the "racist" EC. If Trump thinks he was unfairly pilloried in his first term (which he was), imagine what he would be up against if the democrats win both Houses?

    OTOH, from what I've read elsewhere, Trump may easily garner far in excess of 12% of the black vote, especially due to growing support from black men. I've read that it could be as high as 40% or more, which sounds like wishful thinking. The same situation applies to the Hispanic vote. If Trump even approaches that 40% number, it could be a landslide win in the EC, along with a narrow popular vote victory.

    An overlooked fly in the ointment could be Kanye West. I just checked. He is on the ballot in 11 states, and at least one poll reported he is polling at 2% nationwide. If that pans out and he takes most of those votes from Trump, he could wind up electing pro-abortion Biden. That would be so ironic as Kanye has made his opposition to abortion a major issue in his campaign.

    Replies: @razzle

    Kanye putting himself on the ballot is all I needed to see to know his “transformation” is cabal shenanigans. He and Trump both know that the only influence it can possibly have is to hurt Trump.

    People keep forgetting that Trump actually did a little bit better with non-whites* than Romney did in 2012 and garnered a slightly smaller share of the white vote as well (though the composition of that white vote was different than what Romney got).

    *A lot of that had to do with non-white male voters, as non-white female voters overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton. That trend has accelerated in all likelihood and Trump will probably better his numbers with non-whites and do slightly worse with whites, as another trend (shifting of suburban college graduates to the Democrats) continues.

    Colleges should be required to find graduates a job in their field of study for a 5 year period after graduation. That requirement alone would get rid of the majority of the basket weaving degrees.

    If the graduate is unemployable in his field, then the college should be required to refund 5 times the student's total tuition as remuneration for the fraud the college perpetrated and to provide the former student with a cushion to restart his/her life.

    Let’s throw in the fact that Biden has much higher favorability ratings than Clinton, and that Trump has clearly failed to expand his popularity beyond his base — all he can hope to do is go negative on “the Devil you don’t know”.

    Yes, perhaps the polls are all wrong, perhaps there’s a vast conspiracy and every poll taker is in on it. But imagine, for a moment, that Trump really was going to lose badly.

And the early voting data doesn’t help Trump — what’s mostly going to happen is independents swinging against Trump, but he might well do worse among Republicans as well.

    As I have said before, PC orthodoxy in Germany runs rampant, but I have never detected bien-pensant "concern" for the predictable racial makeup of Hauptschules vs. Gymnasiums... so while wokeism is as noxious and unhelpful as ever, there is something deeper going on with the American system.

    I suspect Whiggism is so embedded in the American psyche that the notion of any kind of official tracking hits a roadblock. This not only prevents America from honestly addressing how to best employ increasingly unemployed midtier talent, but human nature being what it is, all we get is de facto unofficial tracking instead, usually along class lines: hence DC suburbs where over 90 percent of kids graduate from university. Like anything black market, it is inherently less transparent and more open to abuse-and more to prevent downward mobility than the other way around.

    Don Lemon apparently proves that smirking, self-satisfied jackass is a promising career choice. How unfortunate.
     
    Only if you have lots of "victim" points, which is more than unfortunate. It's down right criminal and destructive to maintaining (let alone growing) a fruitful and productive civilization.
