More Middle School Bullying Found in Areas that Voted for Trump

18%

A new University of Virginia study found higher rates of bullying and certain types of teasing in areas where voters favored Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. “Seventh- and eighth-graders in areas that favored President Trump reported bullying rates in spring 2017 that were 18% higher than students living in areas that went for Clinton. They were also 9% more likely to report that kids at their schools were teased because of their race or ethnicity.”
