One-third of Dems say criticism by whites of a politician of color is racism

11

Voters are closely divided over whether President Trump is a racist, but one-in-three Democrats think it’s racism any time a white politician criticizes a politician of color, according to a Rasmussen survey of 1000 likely voters released Wednesday.

Silencing opponents based on the color of one’s skin is insane, illogical, and fascist. A third of Democrats are saying any white politician can’t criticize another politician whose skin color is not white.

The one in three Democrats who believe this are the real racists.

The poll backs up the constant accusations against whites that they are racist simply for criticizing opponents. The race card is used to silence disagreement.

Democrats use minorities to protect them from criticism and as a vehicle for labeling opponents as racists.

The wording of the questions:

1. Which is closer to your point of view – that President Trump is a racist or that his opponents are accusing him of racism for political gain?

2. Is it racist for a white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color?

3. Does the term racism refer to any discrimination by people of one race against another or does racism refer only to discrimination by white people against minorities?

ADDITIONAL RESULTS

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of all Likely U.S. Voters think Trump is a racist, down a bit from 50% in January 2018. Slightly more (49%) disagree and say his opponents are accusing him of racism only for political gain, up from 43% in the earlier survey. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

While 80% of Democrats believe the president is a racist, 85% of Republicans think the racism charges by his opponents are politically motivated. Voters not affiliated with either major party are evenly divided on the question.

Among all voters, 22% think it’s racist if a white politician criticizes the political views of a politician of color. Sixty-eight percent (68%) disagree, while 10% are undecided.

But only 11% believe the term “racism” refers only to discrimination by white people against minorities. Eighty-four percent (84%) say racism refers to any discrimination by people of one race against another.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 15-16, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.

    • That’s only the percentage who think white politicians who criticize politicians of color are racist. I think mist want to silence us.

  • Big Deal all humans are racist by nature. Our first alliance from consciousness is our family then our like brothers and sisters. Only after integration into the whole of human society do we choose to align with other peoples. What is wrong with that paradigm? Being a racist has only become a bad term when sleazy politicians and their drones use it to try and berate their betters.

  • Let me educate you, EVERYONE is a “person of color”, the only difference is how much melanin they have, get it moron? No one is “white” or “black” literally, everyone is some level of melanin in between, and it is a fact that some whites can be literally darker than some so called blacks. Secondly morons, no one is “pure” anything, every single tribe has been invaded and enslaved and raped by usually muslims or other vile satanic cult groups somewhere in history leaving all corrupted to begin with. Research dna testing and you will see that everyone has some percentage of some other race in them, so you see morons everyone is related if you go back far enough, race is a lie created by Darwinin atheists to begin with to dispute the Biblical teaching that all men come from one woman and one man in the beginning. Having more or less melanin in your skin does not make you anything, YOUR CHOICES make you who you are, it just so happens when certain people hang around with other stupid people who make the same stupid choices as they do, morons around them call them a “race”, you idiots just don’t see the irony and contradiction in all of this do you.

  • Who cares? Patriots need to stop engaging in these “arguments.” America knows where the problem is. You don’t even address this “issue.” You criticize the people and policies that require criticism and ignore the squealing.

  • If I had a dollar for every worthless poll both on the left and right I’d be retired now. My only concern would be: Do I want to drive the red Bentley or Silver Excalibur to my Monte Carlo villa to today?

  • So, by their own paradigm, any black person saying bad things about white politicians is also racist. The door swings both ways.

    • That’s actually NOT their paradigm. By their paradigm they can say and do whatever they like to YOU…but you can’t return the treatment.

  • What this means is that a third of Commiecrats will openly admit they are racist.Probably another third harbor the same belief but will not admit it to an interviewer.Truly,the Commiecrats have almost got the race war they have been waiting for several decades.It will not be pretty.
