Polls show Marriage and Trump Trends

Gallup reports:
Ninety-four percent of U.S. adults now approve of marriages between Black people and White people, up from 87% in the prior reading from 2013. The current figure marks a new high in Gallup's trend, which spans more than six decades. Just 4% approved when Gallup first asked the question in 1958.
I wonder how many people alive today have even heard the arguments. I suggest this Muhammad Ali on Mixed couples are against God and nature.

I also wonder what is meant by "approve". If pollsters asked who approves of Prince Harry's marriage, what would they say? They would probably say the marriage is his business, even if they find the couple very annoying, and agree with kicking them out of the English royal family.

A new CNN poll says:

In a new CNN poll released Sunday, 59 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say that believing Trump won the 2020 election is "important" to being a Republican⁠ — 36 percent indicated that it's "very important" and 23 percent "somewhat important." ...

Additionally, 61 percent of Republicans consider support for Trump to be a crucial part of what it means to be a Republican — 34 percent say it's "very important" and 27 percent "somewhat important." Only 23 percent say supporting Trump is "not at all important" to what it means to be a Republican.

On the other hand, we apparntly had General Mark Milley conspiring with Communist China and Nancy Pelosi to undermine President Trump, during his last month in office. Yes, we have a Deep State that is betraying America, and they help rig the election against Trump. Republicans need to stand up against all of it.

I see now Calif. Gov. Gavin Newson is claiming to have survived election based on mail-in ballots. While he outspent his opponents with ads, his endorsers did not even argue that he had done a good job. They just attacked Larry Elder for being a Black conservative.

I listened to this Nov. 2020 Quillette podcast:

While Trump’s hopes of a second Presidential term seem to be vanishing, his surprisingly strong showing among Black, Hispanic, Muslim, and Asian voters is challenging the progressive claim that Trump’s primary appeal is rooted in racism. Quillette’s Jonathan Kay discusses these surprising election results with author and journalist Jamil Jivani.
He is correct that Biden's primary appeal was rooted in racism, not Trump's.

But at the end, he went into a little rant about how all Moslems are apt to hate Trump because of some comments critical of a Moslem Democrat attack dog couple who made some wildly anti-Trump campaign statements.

No reasonable person would be offended by what Trump said. If it is really true that Moslems hate Trump for these remarks, then Moslems are not fit to be Americans. I don't think it is true, as many Moslems voted for Trump.
