From YouGov, the percentages who favor overturning the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling declaring unconstitutional racial segregation in public schools. "Not sure" responses, constituting 21% of the total, are excluded so that the residuals are the percentages who favor allowing the ruling to stand unchallenged:
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... Read More
++Addition++In going back to look at Jewish figures I realized I miscalculated the figure for white women, understating self-reported LGBTQ+ membership substantially. My sincere apologies for the oversight. I'm usually quite diligent in double-checking everything but this one slipped through the cracks. The errant text has strikethrough to document my mistake for posterity, but I've... Read More
They are incorrigible. There is no reformation, only destruction of legitimacy--theirs or ours. After total Narrative Collapse, the bloodthirsty lunatics tried to rally around this: The earlier footage of Native American veteran Nathan Phillips being mocked by Trump supporters is so much worse. — Waleed Shahid (@_waleedshahid) January 21, 2019 After over an hour of...

The blood libel against the Covington kids is a great metaphor for what is happening across the Western world. After taking an hour of abuse from a group of black lunatics taunting them as "school shooters", "crackers", and "niggas", a few redskins walked into the Covington group and pounded crude sound instruments in their faces....

Via reader HBS, another encouraging sign that Zs are going to be a cut or ten above Millennials (quite possibly the worst generation in American history): Almost 40,000 K-12 students in more than 300 schools participated in the unscientific straw poll, which was sponsored by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate. It gets better. The... Read More
From a SurveyUSA poll conducted back in April, illustration 364,140 of how in a multiracial society, democracy inevitably devolves into a skins game, even on the left. The following shows the percentages of whites, Hispanics, and Asians who said they were supporting gubernatorial hopefuls Gavin Newsom, Antonio Villaraigosa, and John Chiang:
- From a friend on business in DC:
From Reuters-Ipsos polling, the percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who oppose banning [the sale or possession of] "semi-automatic" weapons (N = 2,575):
It's been noted here previously that big-R Republicanism is undergoing a political realignment. It didn't come with Trump wrapping up the party's nomination in the summer of 2016, winning the election in November of that year, or even being sworn into office. It has happened since then. Not with stunning rapidity, but steadily. Pax Dickinson... Read More
The women's hockey team thinks so, or at least one heroine among them does. My wife had the replay from last night's game on. As we were watching the medals being given out, I made note of how aesthetically pleasing this line of healthy, nubile white women singing the national anthem and waving the stars... Read More
tcjfs slips a black pill into the Gen Z martini. From Survey Monkey: R-I is suboptimal in that it doesn't allow 18-24 year-olds--that is, actual Gen Zs--to be separated out from millennials. Those currently aged 25-34 represent, as best I can tell, peak SJWism. The cresting was apparent in the Alabama Senate race, for example... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos, the percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who think America would be better off with fewer men more women in politics. "Don't know" responses are excluded (N = 5,250):
Paul Kersey nailed it:
I want the cord cut. My wife pleads for baseball and NatGeo. So we've settled on Sling, a service that bills itself as "a la carte TV". It's $25 a month for our selections. Last night, through the course of a half-hour show, this ad played three times (at every break): How can young whites... Read More
In the post on millennials, I overlooked perhaps the most important data set included in the primary source. It wasn't fully fleshed out in the report the GenForward released, but the complete results are there in the topline survey (thanks to commenter milan for the heads-up). Respondents were asked to select their "top three most... Read More
Via Z-Man, more generational survey data to chew on. This one explicitly and almost exclusively focuses on race among those aged 18-34 (mostly millennials but also the leading edge of Gen Z), so I'll make a tl;dr series of observations on it here. - Cathy J. Cohen is the founder and principal investigator of the... Read More
In this week's Power Hour, Z-Man discussed a poll headlining with the finding that more millennials say they'd rather live in a socialist country than a capitalist one. Z gives several reasons not to read too much into this, the most salient one being that millennials don't know what socialism is--just 33% of millennials surveyed... Read More
The totalitarian instinct on display: Footage in the episode "Happy Birthday Moo" briefly showed a few members of the Pol family wearing shirts that said "Keeping America Great" during a Labor Day walk in Michigan. The episode aired in July of 2017, so the footage was presumably from 2016, prior to Trump's election. It was... Read More
In 2016, non-Hispanic whites continued to comprise a majority of all Democrat presidential candidate votes, albeit narrowly so: The Democrat party's elite whites are ancient. Non-whites are the party's future at the bottom, the top, and everywhere in between. The state of PredictIt's 2020 Democrat presidential nominee market is illustrative:
The Hispanic Heritage Foundation's 2016 presidential primary survey asked participants about their "attitude[s] towards politicians". Other than the no opinion/don't know answers, there were five possible responses. Three fit into one bucket. The remaining two fit into another. They've been separated accordingly below. The distribution of high school student responses on attitudes towards politicians in... Read More
The support distribution of high school students by race among those who voted for Republicans and among those who voted for Democrats according to the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's huge presidential primary poll conducted in 2016 follows. For example, the five columns above "white" in the first graph shows how white Republicans distributed their votes, the... Read More
Via Steve Sailer, some cute high school girls went into Howard University, a "historically black university" wearing MAGA gear. They were verbally and (mildly) physically assaulted for the trouble. No apologies from the Trump girls were forthcoming. Instead, they fired back. Sure, their responses were of the DR3 variety ("[They] are the people who are... Read More
Trump, on more of the same in Afghanistan: Remember when the Establishment's licentious left and cowardly cucks made a big fuss over candidate Trump questioning the advice of "the generals"? Well, congratulations to them for having committed America to pouring another decade or three's worth--if she lasts that long--of her blood and treasure into that... Read More
As we wrap up with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's surveys of high school students in 2016 (a sincere thanks again to Sid for pointing it out), we'll look beyond the strong preference for Trump over Clinton among non-Hispanic whites and look at the enthusiasm gap among those expressing a preference. There's nothing edgy about being... Read More
As it turns out, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation also conducted a massive nationwide poll during the primaries in 2016. Looking at non-Hispanic whites (n = 57,196), Sanders obliterates Clinton among students who support a Democrat,84%-16% in a two-way race. Trump gets three times the support Cruz--who runs a distant second among Republicans--does. Where this gets... Read More
There are a couple more miles yet to get out of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's huge presidential preference survey administered to high school students across the US in the Fall of 2016. The following map* shows, by state, how much more (less) Trumpish Gen Z 'voters' were than the actual electorate was. The subsequent table... Read More
Last November lots of people in my social media network were consoling themselves with an electoral map showing how badly Trump would've been smashed by Clinton if the election had been restricted to millennial voters. Even if the present is out of reach, the future is theirs! The rather tepid response to those unwelcoming of... Read More
