9/23 Unit Rescooped 

Voting patterns for the general election since 1980 has seen trends. Gender, education, religion, and race play a roll in patterns of voting. Most men that are white without a college degree lean towards Republicans while women with a college degree go Democratic. Minorities such as African Americans and Hispanics both lean towards Democratics while White voters go Republican. The traditional American family where the women stay home without a college degree vote Republican. These groups are more conservative compared to their counterparts with a degree.

Islam's answer to the killing of US envoys in Libya - Christian Science Monitor

Islam's answer to the killing of US envoys in Libya - Christian Science Monitor | BHS AP Government | Scoop.it

The killing of the US embassador of Libya only promotes more hate rather than quell it or revenge a wrongful act. This will lead to more conflicts, higher tensions, and solve nothing. It's a disappointment to see that after eleven years, nothing has changed whatsoever.

Democrats More Liberal, Less White Than in 2008

9/18 --

Democrats are now more liberal, non-White, unmarried, young, college educated Americans. More conservative groups are now the older generation who are White, religious, church-going, married  citizens. The greatest change was the increase in Blacks, Hispanics, and non-Whites in the demographics of the Democratic party. Another stark difference was the percentage of married Democrats vs the nonmarried Democrats. The gender gap isn't as wide as the article states. The % shows that there was actually a 1% increase in the male gender of a Democratic party and an 1% decrease of female Democratic representation in America.
