Over sixty million voters think the presidential election turned on voter fraud: That's the more sensationalist reading of the results, anyway. Presumably, "influenced the outcome" should necessarily be interpreted as "changed the outcome", else the "influence" is immaterial. But it is conceivable some of these voters think fraud tipped one state or kept another state... Read More
Democrats are destined to dominate the mail in vote: Many of those ballots will not have been received and processed by election night. When the time comes to start calling states, will the corporate media extrapolate the results of the yet-to-be-received votes based on the mail in ballots that have been counted up to that...

[As noted yesterday, the following essay was written by a reader and commenter who requested the opportunity. In the spirit of the open inquiry and free expression UR is renowned for, its contents are neither endorsed nor condemned by this blog or webzine. On account of the essay's thoughtfulness, though, it has been deemed worthy... Read More
2020 electoral maps based on RCP general election polling for Trump vs Biden, Sanders, and Warren through December 9th, 2019 follow. The Biden brutalization: The RCP average has Trump beating Biden in Texas by less than one point, and Texas was one of eleven states where Trump performed worse in the actual election than polling...

Things I am not: A white supremacist, defined by Merriam's as "a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races". A white nationalist, defined as "one of a group of militant whites who espouse white supremacy and advocate... Read More
The following graphs show two-way partisan affiliation among whites and total fertility rates among whites by state. The state-level results correlate at an impressive .73. States where whites still have a few babies here and there are red ones: The future belongs to those who show up, so if you're looking for comfort where some... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos polling, the percentages of non-Hispanic whites, by state, who identify politically as Republicans in a two-party distribution follow. The poll ran from January of 2016 through November of 2018 so it serves as a good measure of partisan affiliation among whites in the Trump era. The total sample for the extended survey runs...

Some reactions to the blue splash: - The Kemp, DeSantis, and King contests were three of the night's four most important. Cheers to and for all of them. Kris Kobach's defeat stings. He's regularly been stabbed in the back by corporate interests and in the front by criminal organizations like the ACLU, but he refuses... Read More
The following table and map show Trump's electoral performance relative to RCP's two-way polling averages, by state. The poll results were averaged except for the few cases where no polling had been conducted since October 1--in those states, the most recent poll was used as the RCP 'average'. There was no polling data available at... Read More
Like presidential elections, it has become standard for updated state IQ estimates based on NAEP scores for 8th graders on math and reading tests to be offered here every four years (for estimates based on 2005 and 2009 NAEP results, please click on the corresponding links). The scores for both tests are on a 500... Read More
News reports based on FBI statistics show that somewhere between 35%-40% of homicides in the US go unsolved in the US today. Uniform Crime Reporting data, available at the state level (excluding Florida), show that right at one-third of homicide offenders remain racially unidentifiable. These unidentified killers are the ones who haven't been caught, which... Read More
Upon realizing that for cost-cutting reasons there were insufficiently sized exit polling operations carried out in 19 safe states and the District of Columbia, I'd resigned myself to the actualization that it wouldn't be possible to create hypothetical electoral maps based on select demographic characteristics for the 2012 Presidential election. Damn. But the media consortium... Read More
++Addition++John Derbyshire, who like Razib Khan epitomizes everything our approach to immigration should aim for, takes note at The Corner. I should point out, as Alex brings up in the comments, that the percentages are not of a country's total worldwide population that lives in the US--I do not have sufficient data for that. Instead,...

A few days ago I got sucked into a game of Scrabble with my mother and grandmother. The matriarchs are both prolific players, but being so audacious, I expected to win anyway. Instead, my mother and I tied, even after exhausting the rules for tiebreaking. I place blame on the old American Heritage Dictionary we... Read More
