Amanduh’s analysis

New election analysis: Yes, it really was blatant racism that gave us President Donald Trump

Hmm:

It’s worth remembering, particularly when the Hillary Clinton recrimination news cycle is in full swing, that Donald Trump is president today because of a margin of fewer than 80,000 votes spread across three states.

“The most important states, though, were Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” Philip Bump in the Washington Post wrote in December. “Trump won those states by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively — and by 10,704, 46,765 and 22,177 votes.”

Those three states, however, were won comfortably by Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012. Much of the shift, however tiny, was due to white working-class voters becoming slightly more Republican than they used to be. This, in turn, has prompted an ugly and ongoing fight between two progressive factions: Those who believe those voters were primarily motivated by a sense of economic insecurity, and those who think the shift occurred because racist appeals are moving more white people to vote for Republicans.

Sean McElwee, a policy analyst for Demos and a frequent contributor to Salon, published a statistical analysis last week, based on data collected by the American National Election Studies, that demonstrates clearly that racism, rather than economic insecurity, was the primary factor that helped push Trump over the top.

Fewer voted for the white woman than the black guy and this is racism?

  1. Trump won by 80000 votes? Bullshit.

    Even if it were true it would only be an all the more shocking indictment of the American people: that so many were willing to vote for one of the most corrupt and evil women ever to have lived.

    And Amanduh is herself among a somewhat larger group of the corrupt and evil stooges of socialism.

  2. I love it when they print the refutation of their own argument in the article but are unable to see it.

  3. The woman beat the old white guy, but got fewer votes than the black guy. The party for old white guys did about as well as last time.

    If that’s racism I’m not worried.

  4. Proof positive that Obama’s election was racist. Enough people voted for him because of his race to carry him over the top.

    Also shows that “Vote for me: I have ovaries” was not as powerful a message.

    So?

    Look, I don’t believe that ruh-ruh-racism!!!!!111! was a significant factor in the American people deciding between the rich white man and the rich white woman, but let’s humour the snowflakes for a second by assuming they’re being (ha! ha!) sincere:

    So what?

    Referring to the Iowa congressman whose racist remarks have sparked widespread outrage on the left, McElwee said there will be “more Steve Kings in the future, who say absolutely terrifying things”.

    Here’s the absolutely terrifying thing Rep. Steve King said:

    We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.

    Every single word of that is true.

  6. Don’t forget the mentally impaired Left’s version of logic:

    Hillary = good,

    Black = good,

    Therefore Hillary = Black.

  7. Sad thing is, its not a joke, that IS how they think. How else can you come up with the contortions that being a leftist requires?

    Women are good.

    Hillary Clinton is a woman and therefore good.

    However Margaret Thatcher was definitely bad.

    Ergo MT was not a woman (this has been said in as many words by many Leftists over the years).

  8. Sean McElwee, a policy analyst for Demos and a frequent contributor to Salon, published a statistical analysis last week…

    Anyone with a lick of common sense would stop at the above sentence.

    I know I did.

    Including ITV’s Spitting Image

    No doubt the upcoming GE will include hints Mrs May is – repressed hidden suppressed influenced brainwashed patriarchal misogyny etc etc

    Example: the females who voted for Mr Trump
