LA TIMES: GOP polls voters to see how tolerant voters are to sexist and racist sterotypes
Republicans will use data to plot Tactical Attacks on Pending Black/Female Democratic Nominee
The Los Angeles Times and Politico have both reported that Republican National Committee has commissioned polling and focus groups to determine the boundaries of attacking the still pending minority or female Democratic Presidential candidate without offending potential supporters.
Earlier this week Politico reported a presences of a strange survey being conducted with college students that attempts to subliminally use language to convey sexist and racist stereotypes. According to wonkette.com, in the survey, students are asked to rate how strongly they agree or disagree with a series of sexist and racist statements like, “when women lose to men in a fair competition, they typically complain about being discriminated against,” and “I feel threatened when interacting with Black people.”
The DNC Chairman Howard Dean, DNC Black Caucus Chair Virgie Rollins, DNC Women’s Caucus Chair Mame Reiley, and College Democrats of America President Lauren Wolfe issued the following joint statement:
“It is disgraceful that one of America’s two major political parties would spend money on finding ways to push the envelope in its attacks on African American and female candidates. It is also cynical that college students, the future of America, would be targeted in that effort.”
WOW! Conducting a survey to determine the diss threshold. If you didn’t realize how serious this coming presidential election is that shows you right there. The Republicans National Party is preparing to really take the gloves off to win this election.
