New Hampshire Democrats overwhelmingly prefer getting killed by meteor to seeing Trump win in 2020: poll

Published

on

A new poll out of New Hampshire shows just how much Democrats in the state do not want President Donald Trump to win reelection in 2020.

Per NBC News’ Sahil Kapur, a new poll from UMass Lowell asked New Hampshire Democrats if they would rather see President Donald Trump get reelected in 2020 or a meteor storm that wiped out all life on Earth.

In total, 62 percent of Democrats surveyed said they’d take the world-destroying meteor shower, while only 38 percent would take Trump’s reelection.

Women surveyed were much more likely than men to prefer dying in a meteor strike over seeing another four years of a Trump presidency. According to the poll, 68 percent of Democratic women in New Hampshire would take the meteor strike over a Trump win, whereas only 53 percent of men said the same thing.

The poll also revealed a class divide on the Trump-or-meteor-death question: 51 percent of New Hampshire Democrats making more than $100,000 per year preferred a Trump victory to the meteor, where as fewer than 40 percent of Democrats making under $100,000 a year chose the Trump victory.

‘Empty the Pews’ chronicles the ‘nurtured insanity’ of a fundamentalist upbringing

There is a great exodus taking place in Christian circles. Can it be called a loss of faith? I don’t think so. It is rather a loss of confidence in everything at once. Christianity has always been about “the Word,” but these days, words don’t seem to matter. They’ve lost their power to describe and convince in the face of horrible deeds, from climate-change denial to the persecution of trans people to the wholesale abandonment of Christ’s teachings in favor of abusive meanness. The hard-right white evangelical voter gave us Trump. The church sat silent as industrial oligarchs ruined the earth.

‘Impeach him again!’ Assange sets off bombshells with Trump pardon claim

Published

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims President Donald Trump dangled a pardon through a Republican lawmaker if he agreed to cover up Russia's involvement in 2016 election hacking.

Assange's lawyer Edward Fitzgerald told a London court Wednesday that former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher had passed along the offer in exchange for testimony that Russia had nothing to do with DNC leaks -- and the allegation shocked legal experts and other social media users.

Religious leaders need ‘Empty the Pews’ — which chronicles the darker side of the ‘Nones’ phenomenon

Empty the PewsEdited by Lauren O’Neal and Chrissy StroopEpiphany Publishing (November, 2019)

In 2020, the rise of the so-called religious “Nones”—those who claim no religious affiliation—has evolved from a story of interest to a small niche of readers into an entire genre on the religion beat. While the term None has some usefulness as a blanket descriptor, we are beginning to understand that most individual stories about religious disaffiliation are far more complicated than just checking “none of the above” on a survey. Stories about the decline in Gen Z, Millennial and Gen X believers are a regular feature in secular news—Religion News Service even publishes an entire column dedicated to statistical data on Nones, compiled by the sociologist Ryan Burge—and a growing number of books exploring the narrative stories of Nones have appeared in recent years, including a book of my own.
