Who Hates Hillary?

Hillary’s occasional booing on the St. Patrick’s Day parade route raised the question: Are Irish guys (to a demographer, white Catholics) in fact the slice of America that hates Hillary most?

I asked ABC News pollster Gary Langer about this. His answer: not quite.

“Sen. Clinton is far less popular among evangelical white Protestants than she is among Catholics, including Catholic men,” he emailed.

He also helpfully sent on some of the breakdown of Hillary’s national favorable numbers from the gold-standard ABC News/Washington Post Hillary poll.

Here they are, listed as favorable-unfavorable percentages:

All 52-46
Men 49-48
Women 54-44
Whites 46-52
Nonwhites 71-25
White Catholics 54-46
White Protestants 39-59
Evangelical white Protestants 32-66

Unfortunately (for St. Patrick’s Day Parade explanation purposes), there’s no cross-tab for intoxication.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
