Please tell me I read that wrong.

A new survey from YouGov and The Economist suggests that people who voted for President Donald Trump are living in a very different United States than those who voted for Hillary Clinton.
In a series of questions about the discrimination they perceive different groups to be experiencing, the respondents were far more concerned with the plight of men and Christians than with just about any other group.
The poll surveyed 1,500 U.S. adults this past Sunday through Tuesday, 28 percent of whom voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Participants were asked to share what they felt were the levels of discrimination against a variety of groups, including various ethnic groups (Arab, Asian, African, and Mexican Americans), religious groups (Christians, Jewish, and Muslim), LGBTQ people, immigrants, and men and women. And while Trump voters certainly acknowledged that various groups experienced some degree of discrimination, they expressed the most concern about men and Christians.
For example, nearly half of Trump voters (49 percent) claimed that men are experiencing “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination right now, compared to only 11 percent of people who voted for Clinton. The trend was similar for participants who identified as conservative (43 percent) compared to those who identified as liberal (14 percent).
In contrast, Trump voters were not nearly as concerned about women. Only 30 percent of Trump voters believe women are facing “a great deal” or “a fair amount of discrimination, compared to 88 percent of Clinton voters.
When asked about religion, Trump voters seemed to show far more concern for Christians than for other religions. In fact, 38 percent of Trump voters responded that people who aren’t Christian have it easier in this country than Christians, while only 10 percent agreed Christians have it easier. In comparison, 53 percent of Clinton voters said Christians have it easier, and only 5 percent said other groups do, while the rest believed there was no difference.
The difference Trump voters saw shined through when asked separately about Christian, Jewish, and Muslim people. The poll found that 64 percent of Trump voters believed Christians face “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination, compared to 48 percent who felt the same for Jews, and 60 percent for Muslims. In a separate question, Trump voters also described anti-Semitism as a far less serious problem in the United States.
Yeah, those poor white Christian men are so discriminated against.
I mean these days they actually have to put in a little effort to completely dominate business, politics, and the avenues of power in America.
No wonder they voted for a whiny fat little baby to represent them in the White House.
