An identical percentage also think Christianity is under attack in America, according to polling.

"Trump voters are deeply and personally animated by... anti-immigration sentiment," the report says.

New polling released today by Project Home Fire in partnership with University of Virginia's Center for Politics has found that Trump voters are animated by concerns about anti-white discrimination and the fate of Christianity in America.

"American racial and ethnic politics have reached their breaking point," begins the report, contrasting Biden voters' views with those of Trump voters.

"Donald Trump voters are on the other side of Biden voters on each of these issues, and by large margins... they worry that discrimination against whites will increase significantly in the next few years.".

On both counts, only 38% of Biden voters strongly or somewhat agreed that anti-white discrimination is a problem and that Christianity is under attack.

The poll was conducted online from July 22 to August 4 and surveyed 2,012 voters, including 1,001 Trump voters and 1,011 Biden voters. »

After she was hospitalised, doctors realised that the bite must have come from a brown recluse spider, which is also known as a ‘violin spider’ because of the instrument-shaped markings on its body. »
