- "More than 6 in 10 Republicans today are white conservatives. . . ." (Duh!)
- "Further, by well over a 2-to-1 ratio, whites who identify as Republicans claim a conservative, rather than a moderate or liberal, ideology (or have no opinion when asked about their ideology)." (Double duh!)
And no, I am not sympathetic to the Democrats either, who pretty much laid down while the Republicans were ruining the nation and destroying its reputation abroad. Way I see, if both parties went the way of the dodo bird, and we started from scratch tomorrow, that would not be soon enough. The Democrats may have the advantage in diversity (this is noted in the poll as well), but they are not exactly doing any better given their lack of intestinal fortitude. A big reason they are barely on top now is because the Republicans pretty much insist on destroying themselves. Which is perfectly fine by me because I have no love for a bunch of willfully ignorant bigots who use religion as an excuse to discriminate against anyone who is different and who would rather put profits before things like, oh, I don't know, universal health care and the common good.
Anyhow, did we really need a survey to tell us this? At the end of the day, those of us who are informed already know the results. And the willfully ignorant will keep ignoring it anyways.
