Poll Reveals Republican Voters’ Racist Beliefs

A dangerous 58% of Republican voters believe that white Americans are being replaced by people of color in the aftermath of the white supremacist-inspired mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. The YouGov poll straight up asked if pollers agreed or disagreed with the statement “white people in this country are being replaced by non-white people” and found shockingly similar results to polls that disguised the same sentiment with political euphemisms. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks.

“A stunning 58 percent of Republicans agreed that “White people in this country are being replaced by non-white people” in a poll taken after the replacement theory-inspired Buffalo mass shooting.

The suspect in the terrifying racist attack in Buffalo — an 18-year-old White man named Payton Gendron— said in an online manifesto that he was motivated by replacement theory. And a raft of disturbing polls taken before and since that attack have shown large majorities of conservative-leaning voters — and even significant minorities of all Americans— agree with statements in line with that theory.

But those polls couched their descriptions of replacement theory in political euphemism with questions like “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

A group of people in this country are trying to replace native-born Americans with immigrants and people of color who share their political views.”

But a new YouGov poll placed the question in explicitly racial terms, and found similarly sobering results.

Respondents to the poll were asked “Do you agree or disagree with the following? White people in this country are being replaced by non-white people.””

  1. I do YouGov surveys; those questions were on the one I did over the weekend. I disagreed with each, and the survey ended.
    I do what I can.

    1. Hello Ali. I love you put your feelings / opinions out in the public, but you may wish to be careful. While this site seems legit it is a marketing firm trying to build a database on you. YouGov is a British international Internet-based market research and data analytics firm, headquartered in the UK, with operations in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. But please be careful, for a while these types of survey questions were designed to get ideas of people’s passwords and locations in their life. Basically they were used by scammers to get ways to help them scam people, get credit cards in their names by using their prior locations with other data, and other scams. My suggestion is if the questions get personal or about things in your life like pets or favorite colors please don’t answer. Hugs

      1. No worries. I started with them back when they were Zogby’s. Then, the surveys were totally political, and not at all pushy. But then Zogby ended up having to sell to YouGov/whoever. I decided I’d answer the ones I like, not the ones I don’t. It did get considerably more consumption-oriented when it changed over, but I figure if I answer truthfully about what they ask, there is an opinion they may not otherwise get, which could improve markets. Ex.: I complain about TP packaging-you know how you can’t get just 4 regular rolls of TP?-all the time, hoping it’ll get companies to look at affordable packages of their products. So far, I’ve gotten no fishy/phishy questions, but I can quit whenever I like.
        Heh. That old meme, “I think, therefore I am liberal,” occurred to me in regard to this. Maybe when I answer too many questions as a progressive/liberal, they know they can’t try anything? Who knows. Thank you tor reminding me to be careful! Hugs back.
