"Ryan, let's tackle this from a slightly different angle. 1. The evidence you yourself offer suggests that there was no major shift in the white racist vote from Romney to Trump. But if the white racist vote did not increase in Trump's…"

Lee, I notice you are looking to debate Chagnon etc. The best option is to open a 'forum' thread on that topic. You just click on + Add discussion (bottom left of that box).

cheers, Huon
