The following graph shows the change in Donald Trump's advantage or disadvantage against his Democrat opponent by various demographics from 2016 to 2020. In 2016, Hillary Clinton had a one-point edge among those aged 45-64. In 2020, Trump has a one-point lead over Joe Biden among that age group. The change is thus represented in... Read More
If opposition to Black Lives Matter is beyond the pale, then being a Republican is, too: We've looked at this from a few different angles over the last couple of months but all the demographic markers are dwarfed by partisan affiliation. While black Republicans--all million or so of them--are less hostile to BLM than white... Read More
Four members of Congress recently urged the Department of Justice to prosecute producers and distributors of pornography using existing obscenity laws. Three Supreme Court cases in the late sixties and early seventies awarded pornography general constitutional protection, but stare decisis and contemporary public opinion are at odds, especially with regards to children. Says one of... Read More
The map below depicts demographic majorities of 4th grade public school students by state: Most states remain majority-white, but the four most populous states do not. Consequently, the nationwide elementary public school population is now majority-minority. Assuming current demographic trends continue, the country will likewise have become majority-minority by the time these students reach middle-aged... Read More
From YouGov, the percentages of people who correctly identified the current unemployment rate and some rudimentary facts about the three branches of the US federal government. By sex: By race: The potential responses to these questions were presented in a multiple-choice format. The unemployment question had five possible answers. Respondents could also cop to not...

Though the GSS has asked about the desired legality of abortion since the survey's inception, it explicitly asked about the perceived morality of the practice for the first time in 2018. The following graph shows the two-way distribution--morally opposed or not--of responses across a host of demographic characteristics: "It depends" responses are excluded. This likely... Read More
From R-I, percentages who blocked a "family member or close friend on social media for reasons related to" the 2016 presidential election: It's conceivable that non-white Trump supporters have taken even more abuse from their social circles than white Trump supporters have. That may go some way in explaining that high figure. Or it could... Read More
The Imperial Capital is the only 'state' in the country that has, since 1970, lost non-whites and gained whites, in both absolute numbers and in percentage-terms. Funny how the political power center driving the Great Replacement has itself not only remained impervious to that replacement, it has--alone among the states--actually reversed the trend. The following... Read More
The indefatigable Ron Unz stirred the pot by publishing his formerly private missive from last year addressed to those on the alt right. Ron points out that even as California has become considerably less white over the last fifty years, white racial consciousness has even less purchase in the state now than it did then.... Read More
Jig Bohnson on why Kamala Harris won't be president: Because of gerrymandering and the stubborn refusal of non-blacks to live around blacks if they can help it, the Democrat bench has few authentically black blacks on deck for the national batter's box. This contrasts sharply to the congressional level, where many heavily black urban districts... Read More
A few more observations from the 2018 midterms: - We hear a lot about the educational divide. Democrats are increasingly winning the college-educated while Republicans are increasingly winning those without college degrees. That's descriptive when it comes to whites (including Jews). It's not so with non-whites, though: - While higher educational attainment is inversely correlated... Read More
Expounding on the marriage and gender (forgiveness please, vok3) gaps, it's pair-bonded huwhite men and women against the world, with unmarried white men on the fence: The male-female gaps, by race: White gentiles exhibiting the greatest amount of gender parity--who woulda thunk it?! Parenthetically is why the gender gap is played up relentlessly in the... Read More
If the Republican party is to remain politically viable at the national level, the country must remain majority-white. At what point will a Republican in an official capacity at the national level admit the obvious? What's the over-under on it happening before the country becomes majority-minority? Sure, it'll happen at sometime after the demographic flip,... Read More
It's said the culture wars are primarily fought boomer elites on team red and team blue. When the boomers die off, politics will get back to bread and butter issues again. Trump and Sanders, not Cruz and Clinton. One of our most appreciated regular commenters frequently argues as much. I've long been incredulous. Clinton beat... Read More
The civic nationalists want to believe it. A part of me would like to believe it, too. I've mostly shed that part of myself over the last couple of years as it has become obvious that Trump's Authentic American (whites and blacks) vs Fake American (invaders) paradigm isn't going to materialize, but I'm a pragmatist....

Shocking. Unconscionable. Despicable. Retrograde. Embarrassing. Hidebound. Anachronistic. Bigoted. Troubling. Problematic. These are just a few words that spring to mind upon discovering the gross overrepresentation of white men among Democrat leadership. The first graph shows the distribution of the Democrat electorate in the 2016 presidential election among white men and among minorities*: The second graph... Read More
I'd been getting a sinking feeling that Democrats had come to realize doing what they had done to garner big wins in Florida, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Virginia, even California was the easiest route to sealing heritage America's fate and ensuring the Great Replacement. Run putatively moderate whites to avoid spooking soccer moms and then have them,... Read More
The preliminary birth figures for 2017 are in. The following graph and table show the percentages of births by state that were to non-Hispanic white babies:   State Wht% 1) Vermont 90.8 2) West Virginia 90.7 3) Maine 89.1 4) New Hampshire 86.8 5) Kentucky 80.9 6) Montana 79.4 7) Wyoming 78.6 8) Iowa 78.1...

Open borders and the aging of Heritage America do not bode well for Israel's relationship with the US. The following graph is sourced from Reuters-Ipsos polling data. It shows percentages of respondents by selected demographics who gauge Israel as a "moderate", "serious", or "imminent" threat--as opposed to a "minimal" or "no" threat. "Not sure" responses,...

Revisiting a poll from a few years ago reinforces my belief that the US is headed for political dissolution within the lifetimes of most people reading this. In the latter part of 2014, Reuters-Ipsos asked a huge number of respondents (N = 16,668) if they supported or opposed "your state peacefully withdrawing from the USA... Read More
Vox Day recently disputed the notion that ZOG is a result of high Jewish IQ. In so doing, he's drawing swords with the likes of Gregory Cochran, Charles Murray, and Stephen Pinker. To atrociously mix metaphors, that prices me way out of the cognitive market, so I won't comment on the merits or demerits of... Read More
Drawing from a large Reuters-Ipsos polling sample (N = 24,487), the following graphs show, first, the percentages of Trump voters who say they will vote Democrat in the 2018 congressional mid-terms, and second, the percentages of Clinton voters who say they will vote Republican in the 2018 congressional mid-terms (both in a two-way race with...

The percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, experiencing poor mental health defined as issues with "stress, depression, and problems with emotions" in the past month, by whether or not they own at least one gun. Red bars show the percentage of gun owners among the demographic group who experience poor mental health. Blue bars... Read More
The little fuhrer needs to push harder, scream louder, gesticulate more frenetically. He's not even moving the needle among his own generational cohorts. The public has a more favorable view of the NRA than it does of the media, the president, or congress. There is one group that really despises the organization, though, a group... Read More
The percentages of people in the US, by selected demographics, who do agree that modern science does more good than harm (N = 2,675): Some people think the way to Wakanda is through physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and applied technology. Others think it comes from a magic rock falling from the sky that spreads that... Read More
Some interesting observations from a SurveyUSA poll on Californians (N = 909): - Trump's approval rating in California is 30% approve, 60% disapprove. That compares unfavorably to his putative national approval rating of 37% approve, 58% disapprove. Trump's approval is only 9 points worse in a state he lost by 29 points than it is... Read More
++Disclaimer++The 2015 data assigns a racial/ethnic classification to 99.7% of all recorded births, while the 2016 data only assigns one to 97.0% of all recorded births. I am unsure why the discrepancy is so large between the two years, but it creates the appearance of a larger decline in births by race/ethnicity across the board... Read More

The following graph comes from Reuters-Ipsos polling data on the question of how whites and blacks are perceived to be treated in "the community" and "at work". The residual percentages are that both races are treated equally. "Don't know/not applicable" responses are excluded (N = 3,065): Nearly four centuries on, blacks overwhelmingly feel as though...

I've previously created indices based on GSS responses to questions about whether various 'controversial' speakers should or should not be permitted to speak publicly. The selection of five types of speakers does a pretty good job running the political gamut (atheists, communists, and homosexuals on the left; militarists and racists on the right). That means...

From the Census, the percentages among adults living in the US, by race, who are non-citizens: If the official estimates of illegal alien populations are too low, as people like Ann Coulter have suggested, the true percentages of non-whites are even higher than the graph indicates. Taking the government figures at face value, though, it... Read More
Looking at the Voting and Registration Supplement to the Census current population survey for the 2016 election, I expected to find that part of the low turnout rates among Asians and Hispanics relative to whites and blacks could be accounted for by differing age profiles. Older people vote more than younger ones do, and the... Read More
This is causing a lot of grumbling among immigration patriots: It shouldn't. Congress is an amnesty killing field. The bipartisan swamp attempted it in 2007. Middle America grabbed the pitchforks, surrounded the palaces of their congressional Cloud People, and demanded the McCain-Kennedy be destroyed. It was. The bipartisan swamp made another major attempt in 2013,... Read More
++Addition++I made a couple of sloppy transposition errors in the composition of the initial post. They have since been corrected and the figures presented are now accurate. Interactive feedback is a great thing in the pursuit of the truth. I always welcome it. --- Using the UN's most recent population projection figures, the rate of... Read More
Another couple years, another 80 million people added onto the latest UN estimates of Africa's population at the turn of the century and another 80 million removed from the European figure (amounting to a 13% decline in the estimated total population of Europe in 2100 compared to the estimate for 2100 that was made just...

Here's Ben Shapiro's silly assertion again: In obliterating it as decisively as possible, the insinuation of data cherry-picking was made. That's fair enough. Since Shapiro's statement struck me as so self-evidently false, the intention was to quickly show it as such. We won't have access to the 2016 presidential election results until the Spring of... Read More
When it comes to Israel the US, Ben Shapiro is color-blind. He explains: "Color doesn't matter. Ideology does." Hmm, let's evaluate that. How pro-life blacks and whites voted in 2012: Oops. Let's try among blacks and whites opposed to same-sex marriage: Well darn. How about blacks and whites opposed to income redistribution: Ben's not licked... Read More
In addition to asking respondents to racially self-identify from among 16 categories, including "White", "Hispanic", and "Other", the GSS separately asks respondents if they are "Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino/Latina". The following graph shows the percentages of those who racially identified as "White" (rather than as "Hispanic" or "Other") who, when asked whether or not they... Read More
++Addition++For updated 2017 UN projection figures, see here. --- In the comments to the previous post, RC writes: There's little difference between talking about the growth of the African population and the growth of the global population--Africa is projected to account for a staggering 83% of the nearly 4 billion net additional humans that will...

My recently assembled method of screening out people who are putatively angry and frustrated by Trump's intention to withdrawal the US from the Paris "climate justice" Agreement follows. --- Firstly, explain how the following factors into your concern about catastrophic anthropogenic climate change and what remedial steps should be taken to address it: Secondly, do...

The CIA world factbook recently added a field listing of the mean age of women at first birth for several countries. In Chad and Niger, most women are getting pregnant before they turn 18. Sexual relationships that violate laws on statutory rape in the US are commonplace in sub-Saharan Africa, where the age of first... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos polling, the percentage of those who oppose the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border, by selected demographic characteristics (n = 1,286; "don't know" responses are excluded): The Sabine women don't want to come back. Swarthy, swashbuckling invaders taking them captive? Sweet sweet fantasy baby--after all, those invaders are on the right... Read More
Pat Buchanan on the god that failed: As the late Lee Kwan Yew famously pointed out, democracy doesn't work in multiracial societies. The GSS indicates that much of the American public understands that, at least at a subconscious level. In 2004 and again in 2014, the survey asked "How well does democracy work in America...

[This post was updated on 3/18 from its original publishing on 3/16 to include the addition of a few subgroups. Source data is here. Additional follow-up posts here and here.] In imitation of Steve Sailer's--epigone, after all!--detailed demographic breakdown of the 2012 presidential election with Romney and Obama going head-to-head, here's a less aesthetically appealing...

As Hillary was going on about the strength and vibrancy of our black communities:I said to my monitor--hoping to psychically sync up with Trump--"ha, yeah and I'm sure you're moving to one after you lose this election. There aren't any blacks in Chappaqua, folks."I've started taking a similar approach in realtalk conversations (which are increasingly all... Read More
Drumpf is informative because it is yet another stark illustration of the inverse relationship between how proud one should be of an ethnicity and how much that ethnic tradition has objectively accomplished*, or of Who? Whom? more generally. As Red Phillips sardonically wrote: It's also funny because of how poorly Trump does with ancestral Germans... Read More
Via Google Trends, the places where the share of searches for "Ben Carson" are the highest. By country: And by city: Baltimore is 63.3% black, DC 49.5%, Atlanta 54.0%, Charlotte 35.0%, and Houston 23.7%. The United States as a whole is 11.8% black. Nairobi and Lagos are Kenya's and Nigeria's most populous cities. The late... Read More
In 2012 an unpopular president--presiding over a 'bad economy', supported by an unenthusiastic base, and having been out-debated by a credentialed challenger--won reelection by a comfortable margin. Time is obviously on the Democratic party's side, so as propitious as the circumstances were for the GOP in 2012, they'll have to be even more favorable in... Read More
