I don’t have many answers for what’s wrong with the American electorate. But here are a few statistics from a Fox News poll in the Alabama special election that are, um, telling:
– Men in Alabama are seven points *more likely* to vote for Roy Moore since nine women accused him of sexually assaulting them when they were teenagers than they were before said accusations emerged.
– 60% of evangelicals “strongly support” Roy Moore despite him standing accused of sexually assaulting nine teenage girls.
-White voters prefer Roy Moore by a margin of 56 to 37, despite him standing accused of sexually assaulting nine teenage girls.
-Nonwhite voters oppose Roy Moore, who stands accused of sexually assaulting nine teenage girls, by a margin of 80 to 8.
Personally, I cannot translate this data into a composite demographic portrait of a damaging American voter. I imagine readership can.
