He wraps this up by pointing out that it's because those in the press who do this want to influence the election, so they WANT people to connect lack of diploma with lack of knowledge and think that a vote for Trump is really a mark of stupidity which, of course, is why they did not take this route with Obama.
Uneducated voters are more likely to vote Hilary actually. Don't you see the spin you fell for? Black and Hispanic voters overwhelmingly vote democrat and have significantly lower High School and College graduation rates than their white counterparts. Its a product of the system perhaps, but why aren't those groups identified as uneducated in the media?
We're not talking about all uneducated voters - we're talking about the ones that vote for Trump
What people are trying to point out is that uneducated voters are more likely to support Trump. Fact.
I do understand that, but why are white voters suddenly being called uneducated?
You are ignorant if you don't see the intent here.
To show how dense you are I leave you with this:
If you'll read through my posts - you'll see that I never once suggested that anyone was unintelligent. But, there you go - and there you are
Because a significant number of those people supporting Obama are both black and uneducated. Its as simple as that. Its also true. Its a fact.
That is why I am offended..... it is nothing but media spin and people are eating it up. If the same thing had been repeatedly said about Obama in 08/12, there would have been riots.
You said you were being attacked. All I did was call you uneducated, something you admit yourself. How could you see that as an attack if calling someone uneducated isn't ever intended to be an insult?
So you keep dodging the question. Why is the focus on WHITE uneducated voters and not on the MINORITY uneducated voters, who are significantly less educated than even the "uneducated" white voters.

No, what he did is point out the very real fallacy of the press referring to a voting base as "uneducated" based on lack of degrees in order to influence elections.
Do you think someone is stupid if they do not have a degree?
Now, we can argue about whether or not a person is making an informed choice. That's what man on the street videos show, but plenty of those people have college degrees, certainly plenty of them show that college kids have about as much of a claim to lack of pertinent information as anyone else.

Or, alternative theory:
The world is not a meritocracy which means the best people aren't the ones who are promoted, instead promotions rely on meeting criteria rather than actual performance and knowledge.
