 Black Lives Matter - "Riots" - Covid19 - what really matters?   Who are we talking about? Let's look at 2016's presidential vote totals. Among the much larger group of white voters who had not completed college (44% of all voters), Trump won by more than two-to-one (64% to 28%). Women were 13 percentage points more likely than men to have voted for Clinton (54% among women, 41% among men).  About half (52%) of validated voters were married; among them, Trump had a 55% to 39% majority.
