College-educated white men

Did Biden win this demographic in 2020? I can't seem to find conclusive data at the national level, just a mishmash of regional exit poll results.

1. Probably not in my area

A lot of engineers in my area voted for Trump.

4. Geeze, seeing

that chart makes me ashamed to be a non-college educated white man. The racism is strong within my demographic.

5. No need to be ashamed. Racism is strong within all white demographics because we live in a white

supremacy. It's what you do with that knowledge that matters.

10. Thanks for the comment.

As you point out, none of us are free from the influence of white supremacy so it's important that we each regularly evaluate ourselves and continually work to confront racism within us and others wherever it may lurk. That includes fighting power structures and institutions that are racially biased.

3. I don't have a link but

I believe that Trump won among that demographic although it was a lot closer than the results for non-college educated white men.

6. I don't know but I can say

Many of my white male colleagues in the IT sector who hold graduate and PHD voted for the Orange turd. These guys hold top engineering positions in many of the big and famous IT firms and make well over $250k per year. These privileged guys are one issue voters- 2nd Ammendment. They care only about whether or not they can freely buy and mod their ARís and Akís. Quite sad really that they place guns over all else.

8. Two issue voters really, they want tax havens for those $250K salaries too

I suspect there's a donut hole here where the Biden voters live. Below a certain low income level they vote Trump, and above a certain high income level they also vote Trump. I'd like to see a breakdown by income class (lower, middle, upper).

9. As a side note I'm in the wrong line of work

I'm on the engineering path as well but don't make anywhere NEAR that. That would be nice!

11. My friend has no college, 65 and

the best engineer Iíve ever met. I really think if had a degree, he would be running GM.

He voted for the first time this year and it was for Joe.

12. I work in software development, and I can second this comment

Lots of hardcore gunners in IT, who are generally reasonable on every other issue.

14. Paranoia can be a good quality in an IT specialist

I'm not sure I want my data secured by somebody who's overly trusting or optimistic.

15. I wouldn't call the ones I know paranoid or preppers

they aren't your typical gun nut rightwing nut jobs. They are pretty normal except for their gun hobby.

My often mentioned gun nut brother-in-law fits this category.
