Looks legit to me. Here's some more details in case anyone is interested in the methodology.

I agree it's not a very useful study. Just a slight decrease in average. No details on the distribution, which scores are decreasing, why...

It is more true to say white people elected trump -- especially white people who are scared of brown people (look at "people whose major issue was immigration")

"Men elected trump" is as true as your statement.

So is "If young adults had gotten off their asses and voted, we wouldn't have trump as our president".
