Election 2016: Exit Polls

Election 2016: Exit Polls
Data for 2016 were collected by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, The Associated Press, CBSNews, CNN, Fox News and NBC News. The voter survey is based on questionnaires completed by 24,537 voters leaving 350 voting places throughout the United States on Election Day including 4,398 telephone interviews with early and absentee voters. In 2012, 2008 and 2004, the exit poll was conducted by Edison/Mitofsky; in 1996 and 2000 by Voter News Services; in 1992 by Voter Research and Surveys; and in earlier years by The New York Times and CBS News. Direct comparisons from year to year should factor in differences in how questions were asked. Race and sex were determined by interviewers in surveys before 1984. Independent or third-party candidates are not shown. Population scaling is representative of the number of voters in each category. *Change is shown in percentage points.

Print Copies distributed by AK $8 Did Media Literacy Backfire? – Data & Society: Points Anxious about the widespread consumption and spread of propaganda and fake news during this year’s election cycle, many progressives are calling for an increased commitment to media literacy programs. Others are clamoring for solutions that focus on expert fact-checking and labeling. Both of these approaches are likely to fail — not because they are bad ideas, but because they fail to take into consideration the cultural context of information consumption that we’ve created over the last thirty years. The problem on our hands is a lot bigger than most folks appreciate. What Are Your Sources? I remember a casual conversation that I had with a teen girl in the midwest while I was doing research.

Breitbart, Reveling in Trump’s Election, Gains a Voice in His White House Photo There is talk of Breitbart bureaus opening in Paris, Berlin and Cairo, spots where the populist right is on the rise. A bigger newsroom is coming in Washington, the better to cover a president-elect whose candidacy it embraced. Mainstream news outlets are soul-searching in the wake of being shocked by ’s election last week. But the team at Breitbart News, the right-wing opinion and news website that some critics have denounced as a hate site, is elated — and eager to expand on a victory that it views as a profound validation of its cause.

5 Self-Care Strategies That Aren’t Fucking Mani-Pedis — Continuum Researcher, therapist, and all-around badass Meg-John Barker talks about the difference between “kind” self-care and “reflective” self-care in their work. Kind self-care practices are things like massages, hot baths, and sleeping in. Reflective self-care activities are things that allow you to reflect on your emotional landscape, like journaling or meditation. One of my go-to reflective self-care practices is to use my Tea & Empathy feelings cards. I developed these cards for the empathy workshops I teach, and I also use them by myself to process my own feelings on a regular basis.

How Amazon, Google, and Facebook Will Bring Down Telcos Just about everything you see on TV is presented by one of a handful of media conglomerates. A similarly small number of telecommunication companies provides your cable service. If you have Comcast and you’re watching NBC, the content and the delivery infrastructure are owned by the same people. This tiny world will concentrate further if regulators approve AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner. The internet was supposed to alleviate this. The Two Americas of 2016 For many Americans, it feels as if the 2016 election split the country in two. To visualize this, we took the election results and created two new imaginary nations by slicing the country along the sharp divide between Republican and Democratic Americas. Geographically, Donald J. Trump won most of the land area of the United States. A country consisting of areas he won retains more than 80 percent of the nation’s counties. While Trump country is vast, its edges have been eroded by coastal Democrats, and it is riddled with large inland lakes of Clinton voters who were generally concentrated in dense urban areas.

Corey Lewandowski resigns from CNN - Nov. 11, 2016 The resignation is effective immediately. A CNN spokeswoman confirmed that Lewandowski is no longer serving as a contributor to the network. Lewandowski has stayed in close touch with Trump and some top Trump aides since being fired from the campaign in June. Group Acts to Address Overidentification of Black Children as Disabled - On Special Education A new initiative hopes to tackle one of special education's most persistent problems: the disproportionate identification of black children as having disabilities. Now, the National Association for the Education of African American Children with Learning Disabilities will use grant money from the Oak Foundation to train parents how to better advocate for their children and address this persistent disproportionality. How big is the problem?

Can the news be saved?: 2017’s emerging media outlets face just as many challenges as old media No year was more poignant in the slow death of 20th Century media institutions than 2016, but the process of journalistic reincarnation continues to be cursed by bad karma. Smart entrepreneurs have been trying in earnest to salvage this industry for a couple decades now, but it’s hard to argue that they’re succeeding. Despite myriad innovations, in 2016 Americans watched once-trusted broadcast networks bleed all over their living rooms alongside train wreck coverage of Donald Trump, then logged into Facebook and clicked their way into a meaningless online vortex led by nascent algorithm-dependent alternative news outlets. When folks were trying to practice good citizenship, the information they needed was more than fragmented or unreliable.

ChinaChannel: Acess Internet As If You Were In China China’s government is notorious for internet censorship. You might have heard about the Google versus China war which resulted from China banning search results from Google. To experience internet access in China, you can use “China Channel. Deciphering election polling, from algorithms and youth votes to the Electoral College The outcome of the 2016 general election in the United States was momentous and surprising. Yet some commentaries seem to suggest that means we need to rethink our basic understandings of voters and elections. I disagree, albeit gently, with that kind of hyperbole. Here’s why. Let’s not exaggerate
