Wow...this is just crazy. According to 2 polls combined with exit poll data from SC, a very high number of Trump supports are basically racists. Of course banning Muslims from entering the country is high, but these other tidbits are truly eye opening.

The information gathered:

33% want to ban gays from entering the country
33% think the Japanese interment was a good thing.
31% think whites are a superior race
70% want the Confederate flag back
and here's the kicker 20% disagree with the Emancipation Proclamation.

It is polls, so takem as you will.

Hahaha.

Predictably so.


But I don't agree with guilt by association.

Trump is alright, his supporters... Ehhh...
Come now you juvenile miscreants, superior race is so 50s.

Except that Trump has advocated for much of it.....so hes either a racist or a liar(but we know hes a liar, on par with his buddy Hillary Clinton)

.....neither of which should be let anywhere close to the nomination

A good example of selective data. Would there have been a difference if these very same questions were asked of Rubio and Cruz supporters? We don't know because that data was apparently not gathered. SC is a very conservative state with lots of evangelicals. I would expect that demographic to have those kinds of views.

I do believe that this kind of trash-talk will be liberally used against Trump in the coming months. The Dems will automatically call whomever gets the GOP nomination stupid and racist. It's just how they roll.

It was gathered...read the article. Both Cruz and Rubio's supporter's had much lower %ages. Example:




Data from Public Policy Polling show that a third of Mr. Trump’s backers in South Carolina support barring gays and lesbians from entering the country. This is nearly twice the support for this idea (17 percent) among Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s voters and nearly five times the support of John Kasich’s and Ben Carson’s supporters (7 percent).

So if you like Trump, you're a racist.

Now most would not like to be labeled as such, so I see this as typical election-political manipulation.

Of course, all Hillary supporters are liars and all Bernie supporters are communists.

We can see the propaganda almost immediately upon closer inspection.

From the Article:


But first, two caveats about these data are worth bearing in mind. The national YouGov survey was done near the middle of January, before the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. Public Policy Polling is a company aligned with the Democratic Party, and some of its results over the years have been suspected of bias. Taken by itself, its conclusions could be doubted. Taken with the YouGov and exit poll data, however, these three surveys can give us a better idea of Mr. Trump’s backers.


Except it's not "taken with the YouGov exit poll data". This is all I could find from the YouGov poll regarding those numbers, which seems to conflict with the PPP numbers. PPP, of course, is a democrat leaning company.

-only 8% approve strongly while 36% disapprove strongly that Japanese interment was a good thing.

-and here's the kicker 5% disagree strongly, 8% disapprove somewhat, 53% approve strongly with the Emancipation Proclamation.

This particular statement seems to be outright false, given that there is no such information in the YouGov poll:



Similarly, YouGov data reveal that a third of Mr. Trump’s (and Mr. Cruz’s) backers believe that Japanese internment during World War II was a good idea, while roughly 10 percent of Mr. Rubio’s and Mr. Kasich’s supporters do.


YouGov poll

From the PPP poll, some interesting info missing from the article:


Public Policy Polling surveyed 897 likely Republican primary voters and 525 Democratic
primary voters on February 14th and 15th.

Very sad statistics.

Trump supporters are angry at the establishment that has granted gays the right to marry, and the establishment that freed the slaves...that's the establishment they are pissed off at.

Where did you get that from?

Those statistics just show that a very large percentage of Trump supporters have very backwards beliefs. Which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone considering all of the toxic crap he's spewed towards Hispanics and Muslims.

It may come as a surprise to many, but having had time to ponder I agree with banning Muslims, myself included, until he "figures out what the hell is going on"...


The other things listed, not so much.

I don't know if I could say that Trump agrees with them either.

I'd like to hear his opinions on them though.

Socialism isn't exactly freedom-type material.

So Bernie fans are socialist/communist freedom haters who don't want to work and Hillary supporters are obviously supporters of liars and wives who let their husbands boink others.

It's the only conclusion I can come up with looking at the candidates.

Do you have any polls where Bernie supporters have agreed with those statements?

Probably not. Which begs the question why similar polls on unpopular views where not conducted with the other candidates supporters. The agenda is obvious a mile away.

Trump supporters are just too stupid to realize that if he does indeed get elected, he would swing so fast to the center their heads would spin :p

So, the propaganda suggests that if you support Trump you are an intolerant racist bigoted xenophobe? What a lovely way to categorize anyone who goes against the establishments candidates.

Next thing you know Hillary apologists will be saying that by not voting for Hillary, there is a special place in hell for you if you are a woman.
