New Study shows Racism Down under Trump

Racism has measurably decreased during President Trump’s time in the Oval Office, reports the Spectator.

Daniel J. Hopkins and Samantha Washington, two University of Pennsylvania sociologists, have been conducting a running study that measures the racial attitudes of 2,500 randomly selected Americans since 2008.

In their most recent report, the academics admit they expected to see an increase in racist opinions among the group, stating, “Normalization of prejudice or opinion leadership both lead us to expect that expressed prejudice may have increased in this period, especially among Republicans or Trump supporters.”

Instead…

What they found is a decrease in racism under Trump:

Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, when Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters.

As you can guess by their preconceived notions about which way the study would go and the absurd belief there has been a “normalization of prejudice” under Trump, the two sociologists conducting the study are not running around in Make America Great Again hats. But the obvious difference between racial attitudes under Trump and under Obama is that Trump is nowhere near as racially divisive as Barry was.

The only way the media have been able to smear Trump as a racist is through lies and deliberate misquotes. The Charlottesville Hoax is a perfect example, as is Jake Tapper’s serial lie about Trump mocking a reporter’s disability, as is Jim Acosta’s latest lie about Trump smearing all migrants…

But no one had to misquote Obama’s rhetoric against the police on every single racially charged issue, his relentless attacks on Republicans as racist, his role (and CNN’s) in exacerbating the racial tensions that resulted in race riots in Ferguson and Baltimore, or his supporters’ relentless attacks on everyday Americans as racist…

Trump, on the other hand, has offered only a unifying message about race and against racism. Despite the media’s lies, he condemns white supremacism, including after Charlottesville, and his focus on improving the lives of black and Hispanic Americans have resulted in record low unemployment for both groups.

Under Obama, racial tensions were always at a boil.

Under Trump, racial tensions (outside of the lies screamed in the news media) have settled down considerably.

Over the last two years, not only have blacks and Hispanics watched their economic conditions improve in ways Obama never seemed to care about, unlike any Republican over the last 30 years, Trump is actively reaching out and asking for the black vote. He is also willing to earn that vote through his economic policies, criminal justice reform (which Obama talk-talk-talked about for years, while Trump signed it into law), and immigration policies that restrict the illegal and cheap labor that disproportionately hurts working-class incomes and, by extension, black and Hispanic Americans.

Out in the real world, the world where CNN, Twitter, and the Washington Post have no moral authority, it should come as no surprise that Americans of all stripes are living together with a lot less tension than we had under the Community Organizer raised in Rev. Wright’s racist church as he palled around with domestic terrorists and Louis Farrakhan.

As far as the lies about increased hate crimes under Trump, that is just more fake news from a fake news media who only know how to report fake news. The way in which the crimes are now counted has changed (1,000 additional agencies are reporting them), most hate crimes are eventually debunked as left-wing hoaxes, and if you want to see what real hate crimes look like, here is a list of hate crimes against Trump supporters the media do not want you to know about.

After 18 years of Bush’s stupid wars and Obama’s managed decline and race-baiting, Trump has delivered an era of actual peace and prosperity, which trickles down into the way Americans views and interact.

If you turn away from the fake news media and their fake crises, you will see that life right now is about as good as it can get in this country, and as you can see from this study, that includes racial relations.

Because I live in the real world, other than the fact that there are still some honest people in academia willing to report an inconvenient truth, this study did not surprise me at all.

Censorship is Swaying Elections Already:

Did Email Providers Suppress Republicans in the 2018 Election?

Is the world of email biased against conservatives? Many partisans often mutter such an accusation against Silicon Valley. Yet, few digital professionals take the time to investigate whether such a bold claim is true.

Poor email deliverability doesn’t just suppress a candidate’s message, it decreases the engagement of campaign supporters. That means fewer donations, fewer volunteers, and fewer advocates. If Republicans underperform in email deliverability, they face a disadvantage on Election Day.

Report Censorship YOU have suffered to the White House!

So we decided to test the rumors. Our team created email addresses with different email providers and signed up for the email lists of around fifty different candidates, committees, and political nonprofits. In the month leading up to the election, we tracked how many emails were sent from each entity, and what percentage of those emails made it into our inbox. To keep it consistent, we opened every email, every day – regardless of where it was placed.*

Republicans Were Sent to Spam Far More Often Than Democrats

The results were striking, across every email provider.

To put these numbers in perspective, let’s examine two closely contested Senate races.

In Nevada, Democrat Jacky Rosen averaged over 90% placement in inboxes, compared to Dean Heller’s over 90% placement in spam.

In Florida, 100% of Republican Rick Scott’s emails went to spam in Yahoo, while 100% of Bill Nelson’s emails went to our Yahoo inbox.

While these were the most dramatic examples, this pattern emerged in every toss-up Senate race we tracked.

What Factors Might Play into Email Deliverability?

One might ask: well, were these conservatives spamming their supporters? Across the five toss-up Senate races we tracked, Democrats sent over four times the quantity of emails than their Republican opponents. Only one Senate candidate used a double opt-in, and it was a Republican: Kevin Cramer, who performed the best among the Republicans.

Making it into inboxes, however, takes more than sending the right amount of email. Email deliverability is a complex animal. List quality, content quality, knowledge of best practices, proper verifications – all of these factors feed into whether an email goes into the spam folder.

To be sure, some accusations of “bias” against conservatives on digital platforms can be attributed to a lack of digital sophistication. But these findings are consistent across multiple entities serviced by multiple professional firms. The answer to this disparity might be structural bias, bad strategy, or some blend of both. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that Republicans need to find this answer to remain competitive in email marketing.

Email marketing is a critical part of your digital strategy. At IMGE, we invest in the tools and tactics needed to run an effective campaign. Contact IMGE to learn more about how we make sure your email campaigns hit inboxes – not the spam folder.

Fine print for the nerds:

Our method for conducting this study was simple. First, we selected candidates from top party targets due to seat vulnerability. We leaned on Roll Call’s 10 Vulnerable House Members and Senators for candidate selection, and then added in party leadership and party committees. We added in three organizations from each side of the political aisle, as well as three non-partisan organizations, to round out our study. The full list can be found here. 

Then we created four email addresses (Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and Outlook) and signed up for their email lists. Most lists required an email and zip code, so we signed up with our Virginia office zip code so that we would be put on the national lists for all candidates.

To ensure consistency, we opened every single email in the inbox and spam folders, but we did not click on anything within the emails. We checked each inbox on a daily basis like most users would so that it would be as organic as possible. This study ran from October 4-November 6.

We tracked the following in spreadsheets:

1. Date we received the email
2. Sending URL/domain
3. Sender name
4. Sender email
5. Inbox placement (Inbox or Spam/Junk)

We were unable to use the data from Outlook for this blog post, because Outlook has a feature that deleted emails in the Junk folder if they were there for more than 30 days. So by the time we were finishing entering in our data to the spreadsheet, too many emails in the Junk folder were unrecoverable.

The only campaign or organization that asked us to double opt-in was Kevin Cramer for Senate (R-ND).

We MUST Stand with Trump on Tariffs

Don’t Buy the lies We need to Back Trump in this Fight with China

Do not trust the fake news, the so-called experts, and the stock market doom- and-gloom about the tariffs on China. The guy I trust on this whole issue is Gordon Chang who has explained all along that if Trump doesn’t do exactly what he is doing, and what Obama would not do, then China will destroy the United States.

Understand, the Chinese have one goal – WORLD DOMINATION! They are not like us, they do NOT LIKE US, and EVERYTHING they do is part of their 100 year plan to defeat the United States economically, militarily and politically.

My fellow Patriots, right now, at this moment, we have the Communist Chinese over a barrel. They cannot win this tariff war, because they need us more than we need them! We buy like $800 Billion in goods from them and they buy like $150 Billion from us. If we stop buying the goods from them, that should be manufactured in the US in the first place, or keep raising the price of them through tariffs, their economy will collapse! If their economy collapses, they can’t keep funding their massive military buildup and they can’t continue to expand across the globe. They will give in and they will stop threatening the US in the decades to come if we hold firm and back Trump right now.

So get it straight with everyone in your circle. This isn’t just an economic issue, this is THE most important national security issue since the fall of the Soviet Union. Trump needs to bring them to their knees and stop them from steeling more of our technology and money to use AGAINST US!

If we have to pay more for our next IPhone or for clothes or if the globalist on Wall Street have to pay the price for selling out the American worker and our national security so they could become filthy rich over the past 25 years – so be it! What price Freedom??? I for one will pay whatever the price I am asked to pay to defeat our enemies and preserve our Liberty!!

President Trump understands that we have been setup to fail by the betrayal of the political establishment and their globalist funders. He is doing what none of them had the integrity to do and that is to defend the United States and to fight to win.

I urge you to pass this email on to everyone you know and make sure they stand with the President because he is fighting for them and for the very survival of our nation. Our friend Dick Morris explains it well in this short video and he is more articulate than I. Please click on this link to hear him explain it.

For Liberty,

Tom Zawistowski

ACTION ALERT: Ohio Senate Considers Discriminatory Bill

The same day CCV sent our Action Alert to you regarding the Federal Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity Bill, the Ohio Senate scheduled the Ohio version of this dangerous bill for a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee – SB 11.

We need to take action immediately to ensure this bill never moves forward! There is no greater threat to religious freedom and privacy than this bill.

Image

Some of the most powerful and well-funded special interest groups are backing this devastating legislation.

The so-called “Ohio Fairness Act,” better known as a Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity Law, creates a laundry list of problems for businesses, ministries, medical professionals, women, and children.

It also threatens Bible-believing Christians with severe penalties for simply living out our faith.

Just like the Federal Bill, this bill creates a host of negative impacts:

  • Requiring biological men be allowed in women’s restrooms, locker rooms, and showers if they claim they identify as women.
  • Requiring boys be allowed to play in girls’ sports in public schools if they claim they identify as women.
  • Forcing women’s homeless shelters and domestic violence shelters to allow biological men who claim to identify as women to bathe and bunk with women.
  • Allowing state government to remove children from parents’ custody who don’t consent to dangerous conversion/hormone therapy.
  • Forcing doctors to participate in “gender transition” surgeries and procedures.
  • Requiring businesses to participate in same-sex weddings, even if the wedding violates their religious beliefs.

The truth is, SB 11 doesn’t create equality, it creates massive inequality by making Christians, women, and children second-class citizens by restricting their religious freedom and privacy rights.

TAKE ACTION TODAY: Your State Senator needs to hear from you to oppose SB 11! Use CCV’s Action Center to send a quick note to your senator on this dangerous bill!

Jobs Creation Smashes Expectations – AGAIN

More proof that the Democrats, particularly Joe Biden, have no clue what is happening in the US economy. They believe their own lies.

Unemployment rate falls to 49-year low

The U.S. labor market charged ahead in April.

The economy added 263,000 non-farm payrolls for the month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. This topped expectations for 190,000 new positions, according to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg. March’s payroll additions were downwardly revised to 189,000, from 196,000 previously.

The unemployment rate fell to 3.6% for the month, the lowest level since December 1969. Consensus economists had anticipated that unemployment would hold at March’s 3.8% rate.

Meanwhile, the labor force participation rate fell slightly from March to 62.8%, but was unchanged from the year prior. The broad U-6 gauge of unemployment – which captures the underemployed as well as those who have ceased looking for jobs and – held at 7.3%, the same level seen in both February and March.

Average hourly earnings rose 0.2% month-over-month and 3.2% year-over-year, the same paces seen in March. Consensus economists had anticipated hourly wages to increase by 0.3% on a monthly basis and 3.3% on an annual basis.

Positions in the manufacturing sector grew by 4,000 in April, reversing a decline of 6,000 seen in March. However, this came in short of the 10,000 new manufacturing positions expected. Manufacturing job creation has been closely watched amid softness in the sector as a whole, with the Institute for Supply Management’s factory gauge falling to a two-year low in April.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics report comes on the heels of mixed employment data from other closely watched labor market indicators. ADP/Moody’s reported earlier this week that private payrolls increased by 275,000 in April, or nearly 100,000 positions more than expected.

However, initial unemployment claims, which had been trending lower, recently rebounded, with Thursday’s latest reading showing new jobless claims rose by 230,000 on a seasonally adjusted basis during the last full week of April.

Meanwhile, the economy on the whole has shown signs of trending higher, based on the much stronger-than-expected reading on first-quarter GDP last week. According to that report, the U.S. economy grew at a pace of 3.2% in the first three months of the year, surging ahead of consensus expectations for 2.3% growth.

Fed Watch

Friday’s jobs report comes just two days following the Federal Reserve’s Wednesday latest monetary policy decision and commentary from Fed Chair Jerome Powell – but don’t expect the Fed to be swayed by any gyrations in the headline payrolls number, some analysts said.

“I think the Fed has really moved to the sidelines, because they’re concerned about just keeping the expansion going. If anything, I think what really brings them back into play will be inflation that starts to overheat,” Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance, said in an interview with Yahoo Finance ahead of the release of the jobs report. “Right now, I think they’re very happy with where the jobs picture is.”

Non-farm payroll additions totaled 263,000 for the month of April, while the unemployment rate fell to a 49-year low.

On Wednesday, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) decided to keep key interest rates unchanged at a band of between 2.25% and 2.5%, with Powell subsequently telegraphing that the central bank does not see a “strong case” to change interest rates in either direction at this point.

Twitter is a FRAUD – Just Like FB!

So for the past five years, the left and their media propagandists have been using Twitter as a “reflection” of the mood of the American people on various issues and now we find out that it is actually a reflection of 10% of the Angry Left’s insane views? Who would of thought that – Right??? This study shows that 80% of Twitter messages are posted by 10% of the twitter users – mostly Democrats. Oh Yea, and remember that HALF of the “people” on FB are bots – not real people!! Gee, no wonder the “media” and the left are WRONG about EVERYTHING!!! What a bunch of fools! The biggest fools are businesses who are “bullied” by the Twitter “mob” and don’t realize they aren’t a mob at all and that “they” don’t reflect your customers AT ALL! Don’t be a fool yourself -get off of Twitter and FB!

Pew: US adult Twitter users tend to be younger, more Democratic; 10% create 80% of tweets

A new report out this morning from Pew Research Center offers insight into the U.S. adult Twitter population. The firm’s research indicates the Twitterverse tends to skew younger and more Democratic than the general public. It also notes that the activity on Twitter is dominated by a small percentage — most users rarely tweet, while the most prolific 10 percent are responsible for 80 percent of tweets from U.S. adults.

Pew says only around 22 percent of American adults today use Twitter, and they are representative of the broader population in some ways, but not in others.

For starters, Twitter’s U.S. adult users tend to be younger.

The study found the median age of Twitter users is 40, compared with the median age of U.S. adults, which is 47. Though less pronounced than the age differences, Twitter users also tend to have higher levels of household income and educational attainment compared with the general population.

Indeed, 42 percent of adult Twitter users in the U.S. have at least a bachelor’s degree, which is 11 percentage points higher than the share of the public with this level of education (31 percent). Likely related to this is a higher income level; 41 percent of Twitter users have a household income above $75,000, which is 9 points higher than the same figure in the general population (32 percent).

A major difference — and a notable one, given yesterday’s sit-downbetween Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and President Trump — is Pew’s discovery that 36 percent of Twitter U.S. adult users identify with the Democratic Party, versus 30 percent of U.S. adults (the latter, as per a November 2018 survey). Meanwhile, 21 percent of Twitter users identify as Republicans, versus 26 percent of U.S. adults. Political independents make up 29 percent of Twitter users, and a similar 27 percent of the general population.

Despite these differences, there are areas where Twitter users are more like the general U.S. adult population — specifically, in terms of the gender and racial makeup, Pew says.

In addition to the makeup of the adult population on Twitter, Pew also researched the activity on the platform and found that the median user only tweets twice per month.

That means the conversation on Twitter is dominated by extremely active (or, in their parlance, “extremely online“) users. That means a large majority of Twitter’s content is created by a small number — 10 percent of users are responsible for 80 percent of all tweets from U.S. adults on Twitter.

The median user in this top 10 percent creates 138 tweets per month, favorites 70 posts per month, follows 456 accounts and has 387 followers. They tend to be women (65 percent are), and tend to tweet about politics (69 percent say they do). They also more often use automated methods to tweet (25 percent do).

Meanwhile, the median users in the bottom 90 percent creates two tweets per month, favorites one post per month, follows 74 accounts and has 19 followers; 48 percent are women, and 39 percent tweet about politics. Only 13 percent say they tweeted about politics in the last 30 days, compared with 42 percent of the top 10 percent of users. They also are less likely to use automated methods of tweeting, as only 15 percent do.

These differences lead to other ways where how the Twitterverse feels about key issues — like equality or immigration — differs from the general public, with viewpoints that lean more Democratic.

It’s worth noting, too, how the small amount of activity from a large group of Twitter users also speaks to Twitter’s inability to grow its monthly active user base (MAUs).

This week, Twitter reported its first-quarter earnings and noted that its MAUs were 330 million in Q1, down by 6 million users from a year ago. Twitter now prefers to report on its monetizable daily active users — a metric that favors the app’s heavier users.

Pew’s research was conducted November 21, 2018 through December 17, 2018, among 2,791 U.S. adult Twitter users. The full report is available from Pew’s website.
