so you take a random trump supporter arguing with a random hillary supporter, the trump supporter is probably an uneducated idiot and the hillary supporter is probably smarter and more educated.

this was obvious already, of course, but now we have proof, thanks to 538.

Billy Balls maybe if you posted to yourself 4 times in a row, what you say will actually come true.

I find this hard to believe.

Have you seen all the college students who hate Trump?

Those numbers are just for white voters, the numbers for all voters are here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2016#Voter_demographics

so you take a random trump supporter arguing with a random hillary supporter, the trump supporter is probably an uneducated idiot and the hillary supporter is probably smarter and more educated.


Remember, we're talking about a fairly even split here (49%-45%). Sure there's a 4% higher chance that someone with a college degree will be a clinton supporter than a trump supporter, but in practice pick two people with college degrees and you'll most likely get a clinton and a trump, with a possible gary johnson thrown in every now and then.

The same goes for other education levels as well. People without college degrees were split 51%-45% in trumps favor, which is only a 6% gap.

41% postgraduate rate is still a high number, so it's not like Trump's only supporters were "uneducated idiots".

If you want to use statistics to support your argument, you may want to try to use them correctly. You are presenting only a subset of the data completely out of context as mentioned by several people above.

This is something that is most probably done by an uneducated idiot rather someone smarter and more educated.

The OP assumes that highest degree attained is correlated to not being an idiot.

If my assumption that the OP went to college is correct, this disproves any correlation that going to college relieves you from being an idiot.

Nate Silver... who's that guy?

Is he the one that predicted a 90% win for Clinton?

Is he the guy that outlaid 4 scenarios, ranging from HC winning in a landslide to DT barely squeaking out an electoral college victory?

Is he also they guy that made a (tongue-in-cheek) May 2016 prediction that the Cubs would win the World Series and 8 days later (it was actually 7 days) that Donald Trump would win the presidency.

It seems only when he's being a biased idiot is he even close to being correct.

For how long? Americans have many guns and he has millions of enemies. I predict he will not get his 4 year tearm, whatever the reason may be.

I believe Trump will be as influential as President Franklin Roosevelt on future generations. Yes he will be reelected as long as he does not support the Klan.

In all fairness to him, he was the most accurate of any major forecaster, with a 70% chance of a clinton win.

this thread is proof downvoting is killing the forums.

people who don't like trump or trumpkins being insulted downvote it. but that doesn't mean they don't want to discuss the topic, no matter what they say. they would keep discussing it and the forum would benefit from the activity.

doesn't matter what anyone says about that, that's fact. what people say and what they do are not the same thing.

Maybe they down voted it because the OP grossly miscracterized statistics to fit his warped sense of reality.

The forum would benefit if the people on the forum wouldn't post crap.
