Their data revealed Trump won big among viewers of Duck Dynasty. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, did well among viewers of Modern Family and The Daily Show.
“We saw a similar divide in November, with Hillary Clinton winning in cities, college towns, Native American reservations and areas with black and Hispanic majorities,” the Times noted. “Mr. Trump earned more votes in rural areas.”
Furthermore, the Times discovered the correlation between fandom and the percentage of people who voted for Mr. Trump was higher for Duck Dynasty than any other show on television.
In other words – Mr. Trump owes Phil Robertson, Miss Kay and Uncle Si at the very least a gold-plated duck blind.
I don’t reckon there are too many folks in The New York Times building who binge watch A&E’s famed reality television show.
The newspaper labeled Duck Dynasty as the most “geographically divisive” show in their study – going on to describe the family as men with long beards and Christian values and over-the-top lives (as if sporting a beard and eating frog legs and going to Sunday school is abnormal behavior).
They failed to mention the Robertson’s are college-educated and run a highly-successful multi-million dollar business.
But those facts don’t fit their stereotype of the typical Donald Trump supporter.
“The mainstream media overlooked the ‘Duck Dynasty’ guys of the world,” Parke wrote.
The New York Times and all those Big City journalists seem to think those of us from the South are a bunch of gun-toting, Bible-clinging, deplorable rednecks who sit around on the front porch drinking sweet tea and whistling Dixie.
But we also know how to vote — and as The New York Times discovered in 2016 there’s a whole mess of us. Ain’t that right, Miss Hillary?
