Many At Trump Rallies Think Roe vs. Wade Is Upcoming UFC Fight
In a recent poll of those attending President Donald Trump's rallies, some thirty-eight percent thought “Roe versus Wade,” the Supreme Court decision upholding abortion rights, was actually an upcoming UFC fight while another twenty-two percent believed it was two of the choices you have to make when you go fishing.
The report by More On, a California think tank, was conducted as part of a study of likely GOP voters and was commissioned by the Koch Brothers and Coors Lite.
In responses to the question of who was buried in ‘Grant’s Tomb,’ considered a fairly easy test of reasoning, forty-two percent had no idea even when prompted with “just take a guess.” Twenty-six percent wanted to know if it was a video game, six-percent thought it was a ride at Silver Dollar City Amusement Park and others responded by asking where the restrooms were, what time it was or wandering off.
Many of the respondents had a high school education or less, often asked if they’d win a prize if they answered ‘okay’ and were regular viewers of Fox News and the Cartoon Network. Nearly all were white or whiter and the majority had little interaction with what they considered ‘the outside world.’
“After analyzing the data we collected,” said Mark Mywords, a spokesperson for More On, “we concluded that the root cause for the widespread ignorance we documented had likely been passed down for generations. You just can’t teach that kind of stupid overnight.”
In a related discovery, the study also found a significant drop in arrests for spousal abuse, DUI’s and opioid offenses in the surrounding counties during Trump’s rallies.
