Political Writer Uses Hard Data to Prove Half of Trump Supporters Are a ‘Basket of Deplorables’

 

On the Sept. 11 edition of CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Slate Magazine political writer Jamelle Bouie supports Hillary Clinton’s use of the term “basket of deplorables” to describe Trump supporters’ views.

During the “LGBT for Hillary” fundraiser on Friday in New York, Clinton told her supporters that half of Trump’s supporters can be lumped into a “basket of deplorables.”

“The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”

Subsequently, her comments inflamed the Republican base and she apologized immediately for using the term.

However, Bouie believes the term is fitting, citing the data for various polls.

“… If you break down the numbers and you look at the RealClearPolitics average,” Bouie starts. “It gives Trump, 43 percent of the registered voters, there’s about 30, 31 million people. Compare that to polls show 65 to 70 percent of all Republicans who say that Barack Obama either wasn’t born in the United States, or is a Muslim. [Then,] look at pilot data from the American National Election Study. It shows upward of 40 percent of Republicans saying things like Blacks are more violent. Blacks are lazier. Muslims are more violent. Muslims are lazier …”
