The Republican Challenge with Young Voters

Political analysts give plenty of attention to our partisan divisions according to race or gender, but not enough to the stark differences based on age.

The good news for Republicans is that the Democrats are entirely reliant on young voters. Among Americans over  30 in 2016, Trump won the popular vote by a decisive margin, but among the 19% of voters below 30 he lost by  a crushing landslide of 20 points. The bad news is nearly all these young people will be voting again, joined by even younger new voters who think just like they do.

Meanwhile, the over 65 segment – the strongest age group for Trump – gets steadily thinned by the actuarial realities. Unless we can swing those youthful voters toward conservative ideas, emphasizing better plans for their present and future, the prospects for the Republican party may be grim.

    The future for the Republican Party is bright provided Baby boomer morons like medved leave the scene and are replaced by anti capital gains tax, pro federal medical licensening for providers, federal anti collective bargaining laws and the creation of a national non union gendarmerie. The new republicans should end the kangaroo courts of the criminal bailed out bankster parasites, forcing all disputed for financial matters into federal circuit court and out of private arbitration.
    The new republicans must end foreign aid to the Middle East, as North America and the arctic basin are the new hydrocarbon frontiers and we should no longer aid the statist, govt owned petrodollar bankster states of Saudi, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, uae, Israel. We don’t need them and their lower then average IQs and state directed economies
    The future is bright, but for Medved and his ilk

    Wow… Adolf calling someone low-IQ, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
    You have demonstrated your own low-IQ, with every post. You provide ZERO EVIDENCE to support your claims of IQ anywhere else.

    I'm so glad you live in inconsequential Switzerland, where you can do NO HARM.

    I sent links to numerous objective studies even The andreason brain size study stop lying

    Not only are you low IQ, you’re an barely literate liar

      What is it exactly that you think your link proves, moron?

  5. Armand  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    It’s more objectI’ve evidence(as you requested) that proves my thesis that Israel is a below average IQ country.
    You’re the moron remember that; you couldn’t read the economist, and yu cant read this apparently

  6. Rizzo  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 6:31 pm

    No…. it compares Intelligence differences between European and oriental Jews in Israel.

    Can you read?

  7. Rizzo  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    What is average IQ?
    What is the IQ of Israel?
    How does comparing Intelligence differences between European and oriental Jews in Israel, answer those fundamental questions?

    You is really stooopid!

  8. Rizzo  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    Dear people of Switzerland, can you please provide us with someone more intelligent than Adolf?
    He is really making your country look like a Lone Super Dumb nation.

  9. Armand  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 7:12 pm

    Haven’t said anything dumb, and have accurately supported with facts
    Can you read the PiSA results yet? Stupid religious idiot.

  10. Armand  •  Aug 15, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    You’re stupid. The national average of Israel is calculated with ashkenazi, Sephardic and Arab scores; damn you’re Stupid! The mean is below average. Israel is also below average for oecd Pisa test taking states(clearly shown in previous data sets) find some data that supports anything you’re saying(the economist hahaha)
    Average IQ is easily calculated mathematically; but you can’t figure it out apparently.
    It’s amusing that you think smart people are stupid; trust everyone, you’re stupid. I’m sure you have a degree in the hard sciences.
    Switzerland’s Swiss citizens, particularly those of Jewish background have the worlds highest IQs

    Russia…. are you listening? Send us a smarter bot.
    Adolf is a real low-IQ loser.
    He can’t even answer these 2 SIMPLE QUESTIONS.
    What is average IQ?
    What is the IQ of Israel?

    He is a bottomless pit of evidence-free claims.

  12. Armand  •  Aug 16, 2018 at 3:45 pm

    Strawman” not a Russian bot, but if you’re a conservative you’d support flat tax neo Tsarist Russia.
    Israelis national IQ has been sent to you many times
    “Average IQ” depends upon the data set. When taken as a comparison with the global human average, Israel’s National IQ is below average
    I’ve answered your psychotic question again.
    Will you admit you got the oecd Pisa and economist wrong cause you can’t read well

  13. Armand  •  Aug 16, 2018 at 3:51 pm

    youve ignored all the evidence psycho
    More evidence of Israel’s below average National IQ

    Still no answer?
    Israel IQ….. just give me a number.
    Fill in the blanks.
    Israel IQ ________
    Average IQ ________

    Pretty straight forward question

  15. Armand  •  Aug 16, 2018 at 6:10 pm

    Pretty straight question should Israel lower its taxes and have trials by jury and allow private health insurance and citizens to opt out of its govt provided system?
    Israel’s National IQ is 92
    The global average is calculated at 100 in most psychometric circles and has been evalculated at that number with Flynn effect shift.
    Israel measures consistently nearly a standard deviation lower then this average.
    Man you’re incredibly obnoxious and stupid

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 12:23 am

      92? Standard deviation?
      Do you have any F’ing idea what you’re talking about?

      The current scoring method for all IQ tests is the "deviation IQ". In this method, an IQ score of 100 means that the test-taker's performance on the test is at the median level of performance in the sample of test-takers of about the same age used to norm the test. An IQ score of 115 means performance one standard deviation above the median, a score of 85 performance, one standard deviation below the median

  16. Armand  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 6:29 am

    A standard deviation is 10 points. Israel’s national mean places it nearly a full standard deviation lower relative to the set average. Israel performs roughly a full standard deviation below normal on most tests of cognitive ability. TIMMS, OECD-PiSA, etc
    It’s s low IQ country populated by religious morons with math skills equal to Turkey. Exactly why you consistently defend this terrible state is a mystery; they’ll certainly never have a flat tax

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 7:37 am

      You’re just wrong again. 92 does not qualify as low-IQ, but YOU certainly do. And since you want to talk about comparisons that are “roughly” the same, let’s look at Switzerland’s blasphemy laws, which are “roughly” ranked the same…. I guess they must be religious morons too.

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 12:25 pm

      What part of standard deviation don’t you understand, Moron?

      An IQ score of 115 means performance one standard deviation above the median, a score of 85 performance, one standard deviation below

  17. Armand  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    Moron who can’t do Gaussian math that’s median age adjusted, the standard deviation isn’t always the same! Moron you’re the Moron
    How’s that reading of the oecd-0Pisa results going
    92 is low IQ it’s nearly a 10 pint standard deviation off the average. Israel is lower then average in every data set…like you’re reading and statistically abilties

  18. Armand  •  Aug 17, 2018 at 7:42 pm

    Learn Gaussian math! A standard deviation is based on value parameters; use an average and not median and a wider spread….
    Go support commie collective bargaining police in your unionized dump

      Have your Mom read and explain this to you.

        Maybe it’s cause you don’t speaka no English so well?

  19. Armand  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 9:27 am

    Idiot what if you IQ spectrum goes from 0 to 200
    Learn some math!!! The deviations change!
    Not all IQ test span 75-145
    Idiot you are

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 9:55 am

      What part of ALL don’t you understand?
      Oh wait, I forgot, you’re low-IQ.

      The current scoring method for ALL IQ tests is the "deviation IQ". In this method, an IQ score of 100 means that the test-taker's performance on the test is at the median level of performance in the sample of test-takers of about the same age used to norm the test. An IQ score of 115 means performance one standard deviation above the median, a score of 85 performance, one standard deviation below the median.

      Your basic Guasian Math, standard deviations of 10, doesn’t apply when it comes to IQ calculations…. you would know that, if you weren’t low-IQ yourself.

  20. Armand  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 10:36 am

    You’re low IQ. If the scale extends to 200 from a base of zero as the Stanford Binet I cited did, then “all IQ tests” doesn’t apply, many l, maybe most scale to 145 and I higher, standard deviation is based upon the spectrum of scores available, idiot
    You’re the low IQ. Can’t even read an oecd website , too much sand monkey bible reading.
    The median and the deviation from such is measured relatively by the available scores at opposite extremes of the spectrum from average or median
    Man you’re stupid
    Try to learn to read the economist
    You probably like collective bargaining unionized police too Moron

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 10:44 am

      So, you think on an IQ scale of 200, that Israel scored a 92?
      And that's how many standard deviations?

      Duh…. I'm from Switzerland. I don't think so good.

  21. Armand  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 10:43 am

    So do you think all financial disputes with banks should be settled exclusively in the courts and not in the banksters own private arbitration’s?
    All IQ test do not top at 145 you need that “stand spectrum” to influence standard deviation; all IQ test do not have a standard deviation of 15…you got busted again! How’s the economist reading going for you psycho lover of socialist, poor, low IQ Israel going for yoy

  22. Armand  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 11:11 am

    Yes, just ask the data sets author Richard Lynn a university of ulster. If you’d read the data……
    We Swiss Jews have the highest IQs and myself one of the highest
    In the study I sent you from Lynn the parameters were different as age adjustment, etc was different, clearly stated in the peer reviewed article you moron religious liar

    • Rizzo  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 12:12 pm

      If any test, ranks you among the "highest IQs", then we must reject the validity of that test, and question the worthiness of peer-reviewed morons.

      Besides, Richard Lynn? I've never seen any citations from him.
      Was he using the Stanford Binet test?
      You just interject shit, that has no context, previous references or citations.

      It's just more wild-ass claims, to fit your hateful worldview.

      And so what…. What does the relative intelligence of Swiss Jews say about Jews in Israel, and their overall intelligence.

      One has NOTHING to do with the other.

      My God you're a MORON.

  23. Rizzo  •  Aug 18, 2018 at 11:12 am

    92 is how many standard deviations from 200?
    Duh…. You got busted again.

    Please cite us a source, that shows the collective IQ score of Israel on The Stanford Binet.
