Finally, an article about a poll that clearly addresses sampling bias and moves intelligently from single to multi-factor residual effects. Nice job!

It would be interesting to do follow-up studies in at least two areas.

The first has to do with changes over time. What percentage of the Trump supporters and independents voted for Obama once or twice, what fraction were Democrats but have switched party affiliation. Part of the point is to study whether the narrative of a fixed partisan divide is a myth.

The second would focus on getting a more nuanced view on what the categories and labels really mean and how they interact. Do Trump supporters oppose FGM, spousal rape, forced child marriage, and ISIS sexual slavery more than Feminists? What differences if any are there in opposition to immigration from Syria than from Mexico. How do beliefs on the relative threat of terrorism vary? Are there different perspectives on free speech? Do Feminists or Trump supporters favor actions to disrupt speakers they disagree with?

Good work. Keep it coming.
