The disturbing data on Republicans and racism: Trump backers are the most bigoted within the GOP - Salon.com
The disturbing data on Republicans and racism: Trump backers are the most bigoted within the GOP

… Racists are more likely to be Republicans — and the most extreme among them are Donald Trump supporters …

“Presumptive 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a bigot. He wants to ban Muslims from entering the United States, believes that Hispanic and Latino immigrants come to America in order to rape and kill white women, uses anti-Semitic imagery to slur Hillary Clinton, and has been endorsed by white supremacists……………
……….
As reported by a recent Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll, Donald Trump supporters possess extreme levels — even as compared to other Republicans — of antipathy towards African-Americans: Supporters of U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump are more likely to describe African Americans as “criminal,” “unintelligent,” “lazy” and “violent” than voters who backed some Republican rivals in the primaries or who support Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll…….. the poll also showed significant numbers of Americans in both the Republican and Democratic parties view blacks more negatively than whites, harbor anxiety about living in diverse neighborhoods and are concerned that affirmative action policies discriminate against whites…………

Rather disturbing poll results…….. And I am confident many here will think otherwise…….
And may explain the several times Trump Tweets would appeal to people so inclined……
An important ability a President must have is to bring people together………..
And be President representing all of the people…….
Trump has yet to demonstrate these qualities…….
And IMHO………he never will

The thread-starter poster and source are partisan, but I have no doubt the underlying point is accurate.

As an old university instructor of mine used to quip:

"That's easily apparent to the most casual observer"!

Cum grano salis one might say that Trump's supporters have read the statistics, but are not politically correct about what they found there. ;)

Re: The disturbing data on Republicans and racism: Trump backers are the most bigoted

That is a disturbing poll. 22% of Clinton supporters consider Blacks less intelligent than Whites. 25% of Clinton supporters consider Blacks lazier than whites. 30% of Clinton supporters consider Blacks more rude than whites. 31% of Clinton consider Blacks more violent than whites. And 32% of Clinton supporters consider Blacks more criminal than whites. Very high numbers, especially since so many Clinton supporters are black. The white supporters must be even more racists than Trump supporters.

A lot of racism there. This goes with what many of us are saying - one corrupt incompetent person backed by the rich and racist elements of society against Trump.
Exclusive: Trump supporters more likely to view blacks negatively - Reuters/Ipsos poll | Reuters

Re: The disturbing data on Republicans and racism: Trump backers are the most bigoted

What I find telling is Trump's refusal to renounce the openly biased groups which seem to believe is among Trumps base.........I do not understand Trump's reluctance to sever the appearance of any part of what these group stand for.......

How about it? Reuters is too good to have an agenda?

If you don't like Reuters than you will never like a source that Hannity didn't tell you to read.

Did I say I did not like them? They are readable, but I still see bias in a few areas.
