Antifa doesn't have membership Antifa is a political movement not an organization. It's a bit like asking "How many members does the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement have?" It represents a fundamental misunderstanding of what antifa is. Antifa doesn't have a central organization or membership. It's a political movement dating back to the 1920 of regular ...

There have been some comments (now moved to chat) that the FBI might have estimates. If they do, I haven't been able to find them, so they're probably not public. What can be easily found is info (backing up CrackpotCrocodile's answer) like this piece of 2019 news At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, [Senator Ted] Cruz mentioned a recent ...

Yes, this account is based on real data. The article which explains the idea behind the bot can be found here, and the GitHub project here. In particular, the following extract is relevant: We created a Twitter bot and dubbed it “@American__Voter” (a nod to another seminal and related study) that uses data from the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election ...

The FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, the latest year for which statistics are available at time of writing being 2018, gives a breakdown by sex for arrests made during the year. In particular, for arrests in general, 5,684,385 males were arrested, compared to 2,126,700 females. This represents a ratio of about 2.67 to 1. With respect to 'crimes ...

The main difficulty is that there's not a single European political spectrum really: every country has its own political landscape with significant national specificity. For the record I consider that The Guardian has a good coverage of political news across Europe, but it's clearly on the liberal side of the political spectrum. The BBC is more neutral but ...

United Kingdom The Economist is based in London, although it aims to have global scope. It has good coverage of current events, although it is (obviously) slanted towards business and economic issues. It's broadly liberal/libertarian; in favour of drug liberalisation, gay marriage, BLM, equality before the law and free trade. It sees government intervention ...

This is relatively easy to visualise using the county-level results from both the 2016 Presidential Election and the 2017 Special Senate Election. That being said, the use of this swing alone to quantify the influence of Roy Moore's sexual assault allegations on the election would be an oversimplification at best. Nevertheless, no county in Alabama returned ...

This heavily depends on how you qualify "movement" and how you measure popularity.

In the Australian Parliament, there are two types of votes: "votes on the voices" and "divisions". Votes always start "on the voices". When voting "on the voices", there is generally no record of which way an individual member or senator has voted. The Speaker (in the House of Representatives) or the President (in the Senate) will ask members/senators ...

Most publicly available datasets on presidential returns are by state, not congressional district. This dataset from Princeton is by congressional district, but access does not appear to be free. This map is the closest thing I've found accessible so far.

Hopefully, you really really can't. While India isn't a signature to any convention like GDPR it is a party to a number of other international declarations that recognize the right to privacy. Specifically; India has also not yet enacted specific legislation on data protection. However, the Indian legislature did amend the Information Technology Act (2000) (...

Per a comment I posted, "impartial but left [or any other] take" is a bit of an oxymoron. Still, if you're unapologically left leaning and concerned with "rights of all citizens, fairness, green issues, public social services, equality etc." you might find this answer interesting. If you like the Guardian's coverage, The Independent is a relatively decent ...

Assuming you are looking for data showing the vote share of each party for the 1946 House and Senate midterms, on state and national level, here is what I found.

The American National Election Study is the definitive poll for American elections. You will have to register to download any of the data, but you will find all you want and considerably more.

The 1936 election was the precise turning point with regard to Presidential elections. The 1932 United States presidential election was "the last time a Republican presidential candidate won a majority of black and African-American votes." A Slate article mentions that FDR got "just 23 percent of the black vote" in 1932. This was the ...

I am looking for free websites that contain (potentially partial) catalogs of state and local court cases in the United States. This is a matter of public record and available from many sources.

A 2018 report from the Department of Justice outlines "Contacts Between Police and the Public, 2015" (published 2018).

This was driven by a higher percentage of police-initiated contacts among males (12%) than females (9%) Table 1:...

Using data from the Daily Kos, specifically this dataset which uses the 2016 congressional district boundaries, we can see that 108 of the 435 districts were won by a margin of 40% or more. 75 of these were won by Clinton, with the remaining 33 won by Trump. Full CSV data separated out by winner is below. From this, I've created the below map showing Trump ...

I follow this closely and, to my knowledge there has never been a study on the success/failure rate of White House petitions. The real effect is that the White House uses these petitions to rationalize that which it has already decided on. Note the large number of signatures required in a short time. That requires an organized campaign, part of a large ...

I actually found a source on this, but it's pretty obscure, appearing (in English) in a Romanian journal "STRATFOR VS. REALITY (1995-2025). DILEMMAS IN GLOBAL FORECASTING" The abstract of the paper is kinda annoying as it's more of a teaser than actual abstract. The paper also lacks any real statistics, but has this conclusion, which contains some valid ...

Exit polls conducted by media companies are proprietary data and unlikely to be available to the public. The best source of electoral opinion data in the United States is the American National Election Survey (ANES). They typically do both pre- and post-election surveys with plenty of demographic and other data to play with. You have to register to access ...

Committee vote, 2nd reading. the last table has it by group and EP name. It was 33 for, 15 against, 1 abstained, but the PPE vote appears to have been split on East-West lines (as you'd expect for this kind of road-freight debate) Romanians, Bulgarians, Hungarians and Poles voted against. I (also) found the plenary vote for the first reading. Final vote at ...
