Is Xi Mishandling Hong Kong Crisis? Hints of Unease in China’s Leadership

Is Xi Mishandling Hong Kong Crisis? Hints of Unease in China’s Leadership BEIJING — China’s leader, Xi Jinping, warned a gathering of senior Communist Party officials in January that the country faced a raft of urgent economic and political risks, and told them to be on guard especially for “indolence, incompetence and becoming divorced from the public.”

Simple polling reveals Americans’ views of President Donald Trump are split by variables like race, ethnicity, age, and increasingly by whether or not you earned a college degree.

Some other more unusual questions also reveal strong correlations, and those correlations may do more to reveal what’s really going on than basic demographic questions.

Consider, for example, Sam Gilliam’s 1980 painting “Coffee Thyme.” Data for Progress, a progressive think tank, partnered with YouGov Blue in a recent poll that showed this image (without any further identifying information) to respondents and asked them whether or not they consider it art.

‘The Trumpization of U.K. politics’: Boris Johnson is busting political norms

‘The Trumpization of U.K. politics’: Boris Johnson is busting political norms His tactics have repeatedly defied tradition and precedent in a society that treasures yesterday as a guide for tomorrow.

Boris was schooled at Eton College, where he won a scholarship, and later at Balliol College, Oxford.

There is also a large amount of music, inspired by 'Doctor Who', and since the series's renewal, a music genre called 'Trock' ('Time Lord Rock') has appeared. The most famous 'Trock' band is 'Chameleon Circuit'. They produce music exclusively about 'Doctor Who', and so far have released

In contrast to the great fame of the artist’s works, their visual influence on later art is relatively limited. This cannot be explained by hesitation to imitate an art simply because it appeared so great, for artists such as Raphael were considered equally great but were used as sources to a much greater degree.

This painting explains a surprising amount about about your political views © YouGov; “Coffee Thyme” by Sam Gilliam, crayon, 1980. An image of a poll question on a modernist painting with many colored crayon strokes.

YouGov and Data for Progress asked survey respondents a seemingly simple question: Is this art?

If it looks like art to you, then odds are you disapprove of Trump’s job performance. If it doesn’t, then odds are you like him.

The Coffee Thyme Gap is actually larger than the college degree gap, which is one of the biggest and most widely discussed predictors of Trump support. And there’s reason to believe the bachelor’s degree serves as an imperfect proxy for underlying psychological attributes that are better captured by asking about art.

The numbers

Approval of Trump is, of course, correlated more tightly with partisanship than with any demographic variable. But Republicans who think “Coffee Thyme” is art are somewhat less likely than skeptics to approve of Trump, and among independents there is a very noticeable Coffee Thyme Gap.

Each painting should hang at the very spot from which the image was taken, enabling the viewer to compare views of the space." The result is five jewel-like paintings , each one painstakingly copied from a mid-installation photograph taken by Grassie before the opening of the previous year's shows.

That corresponds to a significant gap in overall approval that’s bigger than the education divide. Among people who think “Coffee Thyme” is art, Trump approval is at 36 percent, whereas among college graduates he’s at 45 percent.

Now, every once in a while a totally meaningless correlation will pop up by coincidence, and without more polling you can’t exclude the possibility that that’s what’s going on here. But the poll was an effort to test a hypothesis about the relationship between art, psychology, and political ideology that’s been well developed in academic surveys but not so prominent in basic political polling.

Modern politics is driven by “openness to experience”

This is, of course, just one poll and just one painting. To really draw any strong conclusions about the connection between modern art and partisan politics, you’d want to do repeated surveys with a range of different examples.

Geoff Boycott knighthood criticised by domestic abuse charities

Geoff Boycott knighthood criticised by domestic abuse charities Ex-England cricketer Geoff Boycott has been awarded a knighthood by Theresa May in a farewell honours list that also rewards many of her former aides. Domestic abuse charities have criticised the move, pointing out his conviction for assaulting his then-partner in 1998. Adina Claire, co-acting chief executive of Women's Aid, said: "Celebrating a man who was convicted for assaulting his partner sends a dangerous message - that domestic abuse is not taken seriously as a crime.

You should mention if the painting includes people or shapes, if it is a landscape or a still life. Write what the colours are. Use a natural order to describe the details of the picture. Be sure to use exact words to create your description. Describe the feeling it gives you.

From the point of view of the “thieves” I’m not surprised if the authorities were reluctant to prosecute - if I had been the head of the Tate Gallery, the last thing I would have wanted was further publicity.” I thought that these men had the authority to remove this painting .” The clerk then recounted how he

But while the “Coffee Thyme” result might seem novel to a lay person, it wasn’t unexpected to the people who put the poll together. That’s because it’s in line with a well-known finding in political psychology that people who score high in a personality attribute known as “openness to experience” tend to have more left-wing political opinions (see Will Wilkinson’s overview for the Economist or Chris Mooney’s for the Washington Post). And while of course partisan politics differs from country to country, the link between openness and left-wing views pops up in studies of lots of places including Poland and Belgium as well as the UK along with the United States.

Indeed, this link between personality and politics is arguably why almost everyone (including the people directly involved) intuitively sees a kinship between Donald Trump and Brexit enthusiasts, even though the policy issues in play are different.

Another thing that correlates with openness to experience is educational attainment. High-openness people have higher IQs, so they tend to do better in school. And high-openness people are more interested in school, especially the less practical aspects of it, so they’re more motivated to earn degrees.

In other words, the political correlation between college degrees and disliking Trump is probably mediated by underlying personality differences. As an intuitive example, take my father. He’s an older white man who’s economically comfortable and has no college degree, which in broad demographic terms sounds like a hard-core Trump fan. But when I tell you he’s a novelist who lives on the Upper West Side with his wife, who is also a novelist, a very different picture emerges. People with artistic temperaments are prototypically “high openness,” and it’s no surprise at all that my dad hates Trump.

The problem, of course, is that pollsters can't really give people elaborate personality tests on surveys. Questions about educational attainment are much easier to ask. And unlike taste in art, the Census Bureau tracks educational attainment, so it’s easy to say that Minnesota has a larger share of college graduates than Wisconsin but difficult to quantify how open to experience Minnesotans are compared to Wisconsinites.

But it really would be in candidates’ interest to directly target personality rather than broad demographic correlates of personality. And it would be interesting for everyday pollsters to do more work with personality alongside their various normal questions. What’s cool about the “Coffee Thyme” test is — at least through one run — it seems to be pretty powerful despite its simplicity.

Can Justin Trudeau survive the blackface scandal? Canadian political experts weigh in .
"This scandal could lead many of his supporters to wonder if the prime minister is more talk than action," one expert said.The Canadian general election next month was shaping up to be a routine affair, according to some political observers. Drew Fagan, a public policy professor at the University of Toronto, compared the campaign so far to "Seinfeld" — a show about nothing.
