Bad Algorithms Didn't Break Democracy | WIRED
What he is saying, by implication, is that the affliction of partisan propaganda reflects not a problem of supply but of demand—a deep and transparent expression of popular desire.

Primary Voters Have Way Too Much Power - The Atlantic
Americans rarely pause to consider just how bizarre the presidential nominating process has become. No other major democracy routinely uses primaries to choose its political candidates, nor did the Founders of this country intend for primaries to play a role in the republican system they devised. Abraham Lincoln did not win his party’s nomination because he ran a good ground game in New Hampshire; rather, Republican elders saw in him a candidate who could unite rival factions within the party and defeat the Democratic nominee in the general election. Today’s system amounts to a radical experiment in direct democracy, one without precedent even in America’s own political history.

Why Trump voters are not “complete idiots” – Chris Arnade – Medium
Frustrated with broken promises, they gave up on the knowable and went with the unknowable. They chose Trump, because he comes with a very high distribution. A high volatility. (He also signals in ugly ways, that he might just move them, and only them and their friends, higher with his stated policies). 
As any trader will tell you, if you are stuck lower, you want volatility, uncertainty. No matter how it comes. Put another way. Your downside is flat, your upside isn’t. Break the system.
The elites loathe volatility. Because, the upside is limited, but the downside isn’t. In option language, they are in the money.

The Man Who Invented Identity Politics for the New Right
Perhaps the Sailerist idea most closely echoed by the Trump movement is “citizenism,” which he describes as the philosophy that a nation should give overwhelming preference to the interests of its current citizens over foreigners, in the same way as a corporation prioritizes the interests of its current shareholders over everyone else. Effectuating this philosophy — putting “Americans First,” as he put it in 2006—would, according to Sailer, require a draconian reduction in immigration levels.

Americans’ respect for police officers surged last year - Vox
But the trend line here is striking and unmistakable — rising scrutiny of police departments happened alongside an impressive awakening of pro-police sentiment.

And, strikingly, while the level of respect for police is higher among whites than non-whites, the change is visible across ethnic groups.

How Donald Trump can succeed without really trying - Vox
Trump took an Obama-era paradigm that elevated app programmers, racial justice advocates, immigrants, and “the future” and subverted it in favor of one that celebrates working with your hands, living in your hometown, and “the good old days.”

Study Lands Blow Against “Fake News” Panic - The American Interest
If fake news produced by trolls and profiteers had actually had a persuasive effect—that is, if the propaganda worked—we would have expected the researchers to find that more people believed those stories than the ones the researchers made up as controls. Instead, the numbers were almost identical.

How Trump did with Catholics and Jews - The Unz Review
The main change over this century among large groups has been white Catholics evolving from mildly Republican (52-45 in close 2000) to solidly Republican (60-37 in close 2016), probably due to the “Catholic” part of the “white Catholic” identity becoming less important relative to the “white” part.

Why were the polls wrong? - The Unz Review
The polls weren’t all that wrong, but just enough in the key states. Trump was running a cheapskate campaign, so he didn’t try to notch better national vote totals by appealing to California, Texas, or New York. In the battleground states where he concentrated his effort, he did strikingly well.
