Mark Hemingway: Why Does the Media Fill Its Airwaves With the Commentary of Bitter NeverTrumpers, Completely Ignoring the 90% of the Party That Supports Trump? | Main | Lamar Alexander: I'll Be Announcing My Decision on Witnesses Tonight, After the Last Question

Democrat Operatives Don Lemon and Rick "Qatar Junket" Wilson Can Laugh at Ignorant Republicans, But, Weird Thing, Republicans Are Smarter Than Democrats

This is obvious, but in case you need actual proof...

The General Social Survey has a response rate ten to twenty times higher than a media poll. They ask about general knowledge and verbal ability.

They also ask who the respondents voted for in 2016, Trump, Clinton, or someone else.

On the verbal ability test (WORDSUM), not surprisingly the median number of vocabulary questions correct was the same for both Clinton and Trump supporters: 6 out of 10 words correct. The mean verbal ability score for Trump supporters was 6.15 words correct, while the mean verbal ability score for Clinton supporters was 5.69 correct, a difference of nearly a half a question on a 10-question test. This moderate difference is statistically significant at p<.0005.

Further, Trump supporters score significantly higher on verbal ability (6.15 correct) than the rest of the public combined (5.70 correct), whereas Clinton supporters score significantly lower on verbal ability (5.69 correct) than the rest of the public combined (5.98 correct).

This should not be too surprising. On the 22 General Social Surveys using the verbal ability scale since 1974, for every single one, conservative Republicans score significantly higher than the rest of the public combined. As for Republicans overall, they score significantly higher in verbal ability than Democrats in all five decades, including for the 2010s combined.
...

In 1996, the GSS employed another module lifted from a standard IQ test, one testing analogical reasoning. Again, Republicans and conservative Republicans in 1996 performed significantly better on analogical reasoning than the rest of the public and significantly better than Democrats.

More at the link.

Bonus: The Trump campaign says you'll be seeing the Lemon/Wilson clip a lot this election cycle.


A friend says: "Well, maybe Rick Wilson will succeed in getting a Republican elected once in his incompetent life!"

And via RedState, a compare-and-contrast mash-up of "Don Lemon's two moods."

First mood: A puritanical lecture about how mean "trolling" your political enemies is, and how this is (sad whispervoice) not what we are as a nation.

Second mood: Bustin' a gut over Rick Wilson's Rebus Puzzle Racism.

Curtis Hocuk reviews Don Lemon's long history of racialized attacks against white Trump supporters.

This racist has been doing this for some time.

By the way, we all remember that this racist is also a sexual assaulter, right? A man has filed suit claiming that Lemon rubbed his fingers in his filthy groin and then stuck him under the man's nose, forcing him to smell his balls. And that man's boss, who was a witness, confirms that happened.

Why is this Credibly Accused sexual assailant still on the air?
