This is the only kind of Bull**** the NYT is good for these days.


They hate the United States. They want people to hate each other.

I don't suppose the NYT's poll results will differ from the conclusion written up before the poll was published?

Quiz: Let Us Predict Whether
You’re a Democrat or a Republican


I scored +48 democratic, which is strange since people here call me a far-right wing extremist.
LOL...+31 democrat....WAY WAY WAY off...have never and will never vote democrat. I don't call myself a republican either I can't stand most of their stances because its hard to tell what they stand for because they change as the wind blows.

Exactly! It's a statistical composite. Notice that the main determinant is whether "religion is important in your life". If you answer "no", and continue answering "no" to the various other religious-affiliation questions, you'll land firmly on the Democratic side, even if you're a hard-right libertarian in real life, a prepper, or even a Trump supporter.

In other words, if the statistics are correct, what tends to send people leftwards is their religious orientation (or more precisely, lack thereof)... and not their position on taxes, trade, nationalism, race sexual orientation or immigration.

Everything is about race now, because, well, race is everything to most people. Well, maybe not everything..........but it is way up there when you have various races competing to be top-dog.

the question is not about ideology, but rather party, and race can be a predictor of that as many conservatives of color identify as Democrats.

Race shouldn't have anything to do with ones politics unless they have drank the Lefty kool aide and they view the colour of their skin as a card to play when it comes to being a victim of oppression etc etc...
Constant divisiveness from the left. It is all about Race, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Ethnicity, etc. Just more crap. It is getting more than OLD.
