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.
Same. +48 Dem. Voted Trump last time. Will vote for him again. May have voted Bernie last time if he had won the nomination. Glad I didn't.



Wasn't even sure if the first question "Are you black, Hispanic or Asian?" applied since I am mixed by US standards. Just reran it answering yes to my part ethnicities in Q 1 and I am +42D or +72D. Will still vote for Trump.

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.

Good analysis.



I am a bit of a libertarian - make hay while the sun shines kind of stuff. So this poll does not get me.



But serious question, how is a thrice divorced, philandering rich dude from New York City able to get the religious vote from, presumably, the bible belt? Do you think the NYT thought about that?

The NYT probably wants you to think you should be voting a straight Democratic ticket.

Yeah, this! Identity politics.



That survey is just so wrong - basically it says if you are black you are going to vote Dem regardless whether you grew up as a kid of parents who were MDs or raised by a single mom in the projects. Both experience could lead you to realize that bringing back blue collar jobs like Trump (and Bernie in 2016) is trying to do is better than the continued welfare train by the Dems.



It basically calculates blacks have no agency in deciding what is best in their opinion, they are just Dem voting sheeple. Pretty sad statement when that is what the strategists in the Dems think of blacks. Everybody has a right to decide for themselves what is right and wrong in the direction the country should take. Identity politics is just wrong.

Seriously, there should be a phrase like "this is going to end in a Mueller" to replace "this going to end in a wimper" or "this report is a Mueller" to replace "this report is a total waste of time and resources".

Because there are no shortage of pastors and preachers in the bible belt that are thrice divorced, philandering rich dudes that dont have any morals and are cash hungry just like him. Then they told their mindless congregations that god endorses trump. They covered religion for the followers.

Your opinion or fact?


I am not really in tune with the religious scene in the bible belt.

I think many of the Christian conservatives were not initially keen on Trump. But he was nominated, and he came to them as a friend, and they went all in supporting him. Nothing irrational and mindless about that.
