Presenting the subsequent data feels like the Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s survey results all over again. Recall that the massive nationwide survey of high school students showed Donald Trump cleaning Hillary Clinton’s clock among Gen Zers.
Maybe minors just ape their parents and then discover themselves in their twenties. Or American colleges and universities really are effective at molding their formerly patriarchal, privilege-dripping charges into heavily indebted, good little cultural Marxists by the time they graduate or drop out.
On that account it is worth noting that in the survey, white males under the age of 18 are significantly more Republican than white males aged 18-29 are (67% to 53% in a two-way split, respectively). I’ll evaluate other demographic angles in the near future but this initial comparison suggests the strong Republican lean among teenagers isn’t merely due to the site’s potentially conservative bent. That said, the survey results were not scientifically collected. The site relies on self-selection and volunteered self-identification. The samples are huge, though, so it’s worth a gander.
The following graph and table show the two-way partisan distribution among white males under the age of 18, by state:
|1) North Dakota||82.4|
|6) South Carolina||75.7|
|18) South Dakota||68.5|
|20) North Carolina||68.2|
|23) West Virginia||67.8|
|31) New Jersey||66.2|
|34) New Hampshire||64.9|
|41) New Mexico||61.6|
|42) New York||61.5|
|49) Rhode Island||55.0|
|51) District of Columbia||27.8|
The results resemble the outcome of the actual 2016 presidential election, albeit shifted 20 points in the GOP’s favor. Republican support is strongest in the South, relatively middling in the Midwest, and weakest in the Northeast and on the West Coast.
And who says there is no future for white men in the modern Democrat party? Hello, has no one ever heard of the nation’s capital?!
