For the 100th Time, It Wasn't Racism

It’s been three months since Donald Trump was inaugurated, and many Democrats and Leftmedia political analysts are still looking for reasons for why he actually won. How could America’s electorate choose Donald Trump, a man with no political experience, over Hillary Clinton, a woman — a woman! — who’d been around the levers of power her entire adult life?

According to a Washington Post “Monkey Cage” blog, written by Ohio State Professor Thomas Wood, the biggest motivator for Trump voters was, you guessed it, racism. Seriously, this was Wood’s conclusion after conducting “research” on the Annual National Election Study (ANES).

Wood’s analysis took three popular narratives or motivators to determine people’s reasons to vote for Trump and compared them with previous elections. The three motivators were being low income, desiring authoritarianism, and racism. To test these motivators against the ANES data, Wood’s used white voters as his sample population and on the issue of racism he used a “symbolic racism scale.”

Without belaboring the details, the result of Wood’s study supposedly reveals that racial attitudes made a bigger difference in electing Trump than authoritarianism or being low income..

As if race had nothing to do with Obama's elections?

Just more BS.. Another wannabe "expert" who starts with a conclusion and then picks data to support it. Trump was elected because he offered freedom to the masses.

Same people voted for obama voted for trump. Every illegal voted for Clinton and she still couldn't win. She destroyed the democrats and is the reason why I'm no longer a democrat.
