    The article's numbers don't seem to match the article's headline & it looks like the writer purposely played even how he wrote the numbers to mislead the reader.

    Article:
    Roughly one-third of Trump supporters described blacks as less “intelligent” than whites, compared with about one-fifth of Clinton supporters who did the same. Among all respondents, 22.5 percent suggested whites were smarter than blacks.


    1/5th to 1/3rd, huh? So that's 0.2 Hillary to 0.33 Trump with the general population of respondents being 0.225 racist. So besides that the HILLARY group of supporters HAS LESS RACISTS THAN THE GENERAL POPULATION of respondents which the article reports but obscures--not only unreflected in the headline but quite conflicting with it, as 0.2 is less than 0.225--but that means that in a room of 15 Hillary supporters only 3 are racist; while in a room of Trump supporters 5 of every 15 is racist.

    Three is nearly an outlier. What can you play with that, go fish? Five is canasta.

    What else does it say:
    40 percent of Trump supporters described blacks as more “lazy” than whites, compared with one-quarter of Clinton supporters who did the same. Among all respondents, 26.8 percent suggested whites were harder working than blacks.


    Oh, "one-quarter" of Clinton supporters as compared to 26.8 percent of all respondents as compared to 40 percent of Trump. Why is the one-quarter spelled out when the rest is described numerically? To try and hide that Hillary's one-quarter is LESS than the general population of respondents & WAY LESS than Trump.

    So that writer was being purposely scummy, purposely misleading readers.

    Here's another

    44 percent of Trump supporters described blacks as more “rude” than whites, compared with 30 percent of Clinton supporters who did the same. Among all respondents, 31.3 percent said whites were more well mannered than blacks.


    again, Hillary's supporters are not only somewhat less racist than the general population of respondents for most of the questions but much less racist than Trump's.

    So this article is nothing but an attempt to throw horseshit at Hillary.

    What we have here is two candidates drawing from the same bucket of water. Hillary draws from clearer water towards the top where there will still be some particulates floating about. Trump draws from the bottom wherein lies the sludge.
