1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Not news: "Trump supporters are racist." News: Now with scientific evidence on: September 11, 2017, 11:17:00 pm
We already had this poll from last year showing that Trump supporters were the most racist and Bernie supporters were the least racist. But that doesn't mean all Trump supporters are racist.





Not that that survey isn't interesting, but the study posted here sought to determine subconscious racism, rather than a more straightforward "on a scale of 1-10, rate black people on their laziness" etc.

All it takes to reduce support for housing assistance among Donald Trump supporters is exposure to an image of a black man.

Thats the takeaway from a new study by researchers Matthew Luttig, Christopher Federico, and Howard Lavine, set to be published in Research & Politics. In a randomized survey experiment, the trio of researchers exposed respondents to images of either a white or black man. They found that when exposed to the image of a black man, white Trump supporters were less likely to back a federal mortgage aid program. Favorability toward Trump was a key measure for how strong this effect was.

...

For the study, researchers deployed a survey experiment, sampling more than 700 white people on their support housing assistance programs. (The researchers only used data from white respondents because support among minority groups for Trump was too low to be statistically reliable.) But there was a twist: Respondents were randomly assigned a subtle image of either a black or a white man.
 




They found that the image of a black man greatly impacted responses among Trump supporters. After they were exposed to the black racial cue, they were not only less supportive of housing assistance programs, but they also expressed higher levels of anger that some people receive government assistance and were more likely to say that individuals who receive assistance are to blame for their situation.

Don't like "glitz", don't drink much, don't like gambling much, I do enjoy people watching, but I don't really like crowds, don't like heat (dry or not).  Some neat things to look at, but over all, LV is teh suck.

You're just describing the Strip and Downtown.  Which is fine; non-locals only ever do.  I haven't been to either in about six months.

He actually just came in discussion with my girlfriend when I told her about the time he told Tweed to kill himself. She was QUITE greatly upset by that and said she hopes he never posts ever again.

lol


We've lost a lot of good posters over the years, but Joe wasn't one of them.

He could be very funny, but also pretty mean.

Maybe his Mom will log onto the forum in a couple weeks to tell us what happened.

I assume this was a dig at my decision to pass on a message to my then-friends here that I had been hospitalized for several months.  Haha, yeah, what a loser I was!

(I'm impressed at your memory of events from twelve years ago!  Alas, I wish my own memory were as robust; I'm afraid I can't really say I remember who you are.)


snarked his way into a black hole.
I thinks his own self importance became so great that he collapsed in on himself and crated a new black hole.

It's 'created'.  And better to be associated these days with black holes, for some reason, than black cock. Smiley

I'm fine, guys.  Thanks for the concern/interest. Smiley

I needed an immediate break from the forum and social media immediately after the election, and although I still occasionally checked in here afterward, there was little to nothing I wanted to discuss.  Plus, what Al said is completely correct (as always).

I've seen and heard several theories that Obama will unconstitutionally remain in office beyond 1/20/17, via executive order, etc.  All perfectly sane and rational fears, tbh.


There's still time, but I remember a lot of people, mostly conservatives iirc, saying that Obama would be assassinated

Oh, my liberal friends and I were saying that around the beginning of his presidency.  I guess we've come a long way since the 60s.

It's a sad state of affairs that the ratio of newbies:veterans here is so lopsided now that few people seem to actually understand this meme correctly.

I don't understand why they're trying to keep the 'mockumentary' format on life support.  It just feels so forced.

I'm not asking why they are liberal, that's obvious. I'm talking about why they are usually such die-hard loyalists for the actual Democratic Party ala me and Lief and thus Hillary, instead of criticizing her from the left and only reluctantly accepting her, and almost no Bernie or Bust types.

Lief is a Christian?!  Sad

Clearly one of his campaign's Best People encountered a very high energy pro-Trump sign on someone's lawn while home visiting his parents in Anoka county, MN, therefore Minnesota is definitely in play.

17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump claims voter fraud in Nevada on: November 06, 2016, 12:53:11 pm
Real vote rigging in NV. 
the guy who caused the Secret Service to take Trump off stage yesterday, committed voter fraud by voting for his dead grandma.

It's such a shame that registered Republicans can keep getting away with this, and for multiple elections. Sad
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump claims voter fraud in Nevada on: November 06, 2016, 12:27:54 pm
Solution: set up way more precincts and assign voters to a precinct in which they HAVE to vote, so they are not crowding one precinct.

That is already the case on Election Day, here in NV at least.  But for early voting you could show up to any location in the county.

In case you're wondering exactly which type of people he's referring to, the polling location he was referring to that stayed open til 10pm due to insane turnout was located inside a Hispanic grocery store.

Take a look at all of the poll questions, if you feel like a good laugh.  Though I won't push you to do so.

Gravis/Breitbart's polling results are an indication of where they believe each race should be rather than where it actually is.  The spelling of Bennet's name is another example of this philosophy.

Latest reports from the Reno event indicate that a secret service agent, dressed in the typical black suit, fatally shot the man and then proceeded to watch as he lay dying.
