  • Black women doubled their support for trump from 2016 to 2020. White women, latino women, and "other" women all voted Trump in significantly higher numbers than black men. Not only are the facts wrong, but the analysis is garbage. Trump increased support amongst every group except white men, and the reason is patriarchy? Lol. They'll point to anything except the utter failure of the Democratic Party to offer these voters anything meaningful.

  • It’s funny how anytime there’s an election democrats go screaming for people to vote. They do this because statistically low information voters tend to vote Democratic. So congratulations a bunch of people who don’t know anything other than “orange man bad” came out to influence national politics. They probably don’t know anything about trump or Biden other than what they here from Facebook or late night comedy. Because we all know Trevor Noah is a journalist and not a comedy host 😑

  • So can you explain why Trump did better with black women? black people as a collective voted at 92% the 8% consisted of black men and women. So why are you guys pushing this propaganda. Black people were the only group that voted together as a unionized block. This is liberal trash, an attempt to erase black men. Black men tend not to have the same support for carceral candidates. Even with that truth they still voted Biden in undeserved overwhelming numbers.

  • She hits the arrow on the bullseye! Its black, Latino and white men that vote Trump. Gender interests that buy them nothing! Sure its about the macho bully persona of " Giving it to the Man" that one ups the establishment, says "I'm in charge", that they support. But women don't forget its that persona that callusely orders our children into unprotected, unmasked schools during a pandemic, locks up children in cages and tears them from families as " a deterent", lets assault weapon gun ownership go unregulated where first graders, 6 year olds! are allowed to be gunned down in their classrooms; where absentee men can abandon children they father to single moms struggling to keep them out of street gangs and welfare lines and the low self esteem that abandonment and poverty perpetuates. Women stood up to the president, now we need to stand up to the mitch McConnells and Lindsay Grahams too!

Too many people are still uncomfortable acknowledging the gender issues in all western countries I've been too EVEN IN the same breath that they acknowledge racial issues. How are we still more uncomfortable confronting gender prejudice and women's rights (which are human rights) when we acknowledge easily LGBTQI rights racial inequality religious intolerance-the list goes on. How? How are women's issues still not being addressed almost ever. Thank God for this women! Please Trevor keep drawing attention to the still oppressed still silent majority of women.

  • Man.. so conservatism is a patriarchal impulse now? And this is coming from the side that claims to be inclusive and rational. Making this claim categorizes millions of male voters as chauvinists. We don’t have to be this divided, y’all. Alienating millions of people ( half the population) because they didn’t vote like you is not a good thing. Imagine if we just allowed black, white, latino, and Asian folks vote how they wanted without scorning them for their decisions. Then this lady has the nerve to claim that those decisions stem from some type of underlying evil. Good luck achieving unity with this type of mumbo-jumbo.

If you look at the stats both black male and female voted more for the republicans, It's just more so in black men. I did not vote at all, the candidates were terrible on both sides. WE have given our vote to democrats with nothing to show for it, many black people are tired of it.

    • @Marc Smausz, because sometimes it may seem that we inevitably always go back to using the same 3 proxies to explain human behavior, there is much more to social science and their investigation of human behavior. For example in anthropology we examine the contextual setting of people. (For a short and easy to understand explanations on the merits of anthropology: Maybe research from that field would be more interesting to you. :)

      AAHace 15 días
    • ​@A I believe that one's identity SHOULD NOT be based on some random characteristics, but rather on their personal experiences and qualities/defects. These are, indeed, often reflective of their race/gender/class situation, however they will never fit perfectly into rigidly defined stereotypes. Now, when discussing voting tendencies, I therefore think that most people SHOULD choose the candidate whose personality and ideas most nearly aligns with theirs. I would consider doing otherwise to be superficial and shallow, although if the way you see yourself is mainly dependent on the social category you place yourself in, this is also how you will look at the rest of the world, including the people you vote for. Finally, I am not a social scientist, so I have to admit I don't have the data to know which tendency actually constitutes a majority. (In the original comment I should have said "...should be primordial...")

      Marc SmauszMarc SmauszHace 15 días
    • Well these are the main lines that drive peoples formation of identity. As a fellow social scientist, though in anthropology, we extrapolate on these ideas quite often. As you disagree what do you think drives voting behavior?

  • Black views on the church, sexuality, and frugality historically align with Republicans. We were somehow bamboozled into thinking that the Democrats and their social programs had our best interest but in reality they lump us in with all of their other causes. I voted for Biden this election because I think TRUMP is dangerous for our country, but no party truly has the best interest of Black Americans in their policies. 🤷🏾‍♀️

  • Unfortunately the biggest and most prolific discrimination the world over is against women ... and we are not a minority! So tired of minorities being lumped together with us. Trans can be men or women. All religions target us, brainwash women against themselves and unfortunately men and even women are persuaded by this. Until women stand together race/ religion aside this will not change 😞

  • While there are a small amount of Black people who have generational establishment in the US who vote Republican, the problem in what is reflected in the statistics is the failure to distinguish the difference in polling metrics between Black immigrants (Africans, Haitians, Jamaicans, et al) and Blacks who have a deep generational establishment in the US and it makes a difference in perspective. I agree with the doctor there is a small contingent of Black men whose gender interests out strip those of class and race. However, I would argue they are a significantly smaller contingent than she implied. Also, some of the Black votes for Trump were not a vote for Trump as much as a protest vote against Joe Biden and the democratic party as a whole because of their failure to directly address Black issues. If we are to take the democratic leadership at their word, they tend to take, "a rising tide lifts all boats," approach toward Black issues while specifically addressing the needs of other interest groups.

  • At times it is fun being on a fence. You get to easily see what happens on both sides. I'm seated on the fence right now laughing. How I wish Trump concedes and allows Joe to be cross examined by the right, just like what Trump got from the Left these last four years. I just want to see Joe's stamina, whether he can hold on to the barage of the right. I still remember that scene when Obama shed tears, live on TV.

I don't feel good about going with the dems, I believe we need to break the power base of these two parties. Black men who voted for Trump are probably more at peace than I am. Biden Harris....and I'm the super preditor. It feels weird going for individuals who have actively played a part in destroying many Black boys lives. So many bad choices neither side ever follows through with their promises. We can't blame them for taking advantage of our horrible decision as a people to just give our vote without making them earn it.

  • Trump also did measurably better among Black women this election than last election. I wonder why nobody is doing an analysis of that? But a Lot of Black votes for Trump were "Protest" votes. Black women voters who felt especially betrayed by the Obama Administration were voting against Obama "Lite" and Many Black Men who know Bidens EXTREME racist and segregationist history, his long association with Strom Thurmond a known racist and the infamous 1994 crime bill which ruined the lives of tens of thousands of Black Men and while they may have hated Trump but were never going to vote for Biden.

I think those brothers who voted for Trump are actually voting AGAINST Biden and his "top cop" running-mate. In a two-party system, the only recourse people have to send a message that politicians can understand is to vote against them. I'm not a Republican or a Democrat and I wouldn't vote for Trump under any circumstances, but I understand why some people might feel that sending a message is important enough to risk reelecting Trump.

It's probably a lot of the fools who think they'll make it later down the line.

  • This lady is really dumb..what race specific issues does the democratic party address for black men? Excuse me, straight black men? I would actually argue the converse is more accurate. That the democratic party creates more issue, more division and disharmony for black men that they feel are indebted to them. Dems have done nothing in the last 60 years for black men except separate our families, incarcerate us at a rate never seen before in human history, indoctrinate our children with homosexuality and convince our women they are above us. And yet, we went out and voted at over 80% for a dixiecrat that was too racist for Reagan and a woman who said she would never do anything specifically for black people.

    Marquis BellMarquis BellHace 20 días
  • I am a 61 y/o white woman. I registered as a democrat when I was 18 and have voted a straight democratic ticket every election. What I love about the Democratic Party is that it welcomes everyone. We are not a rigid group. We do not have a committee drafting and circulating our “talking points” to us daily. Members within the party are free to talk about what they think is important that day. So on any given day, Democrats may be talking about 1 issue or they may be talking about 1,000 issues. I am forever getting questionnaires from various democratic groups who ask me to check or rank several issues. I always have a hard time because all the issues are important to me - hence why you have so many Democrats talking about so many different things, because they are all important. Yes I do think the party fails to get the basic facts of life to voters. We have failed to educate the voters on what our party is about and why our policies are the ones that will move this country into the future. I have never understood why the working class, working poor, and plain ole poor folk cannot see that the Republican Party likes them just as they are, poor, ignorant and stuck in that cycle of poverty. The less you have, the more for me. Can’t afford health insurance? Good you’ll die off sooner and we won’t need to worry with you. The republicans just need to keep enough poor people to pick-up the garbage, clean their houses, mow their lawns, and shine their shoes. It is just crazy that any poor person would ever vote Republican but they do. So the democrats don’t need to change, they need to do a better job educating the public about what Republican policies are really doing to them - how they are being harmed and how the democratic policies actually help and support them and help them build better lives. Think of all the time we have wasted with trying to adopt legislation to actually make things equitable for everyone. All the non-sense court cases for LGBTQ and woman and equal pay etc. all we really needed to do was amend the constitution to replace the word man with the word human or homo-sapien. That covers everyone and every protection applies to every human. Sorry I have gotten in such a tangent and rant - my point is yes indeed the Republicans are beating us by dividing us. They are dividing us by gender, by socio-economic standards, religion, sexual orientation - the only reason I have even a modicum of hope is because the younger generation the twenty year olds and the current teens have a less racist view of the world and can embrace the idea of a more equitable distribution of wealth. They don’t see Medicare for all as a socialist program, they see it as a right for all Americans.
