It's been a while since anyone has been shocked that Republicans hate pretty much everyone but the sick bastards in the mirror, but I thought it would be enlightening to work out quantitatively just how big a proportion of the US population the Republican Party actively campaigns against, so I'll describe step-by-step each of the demographics they openly demagogue, find out what proportion of the population they represent, and then at the end of the process put the data into a pie chart showing how much of America the Republican Party hates.
For each category, I use the most recent available data, which in most cases is the 2010 US Census. There is some complexity involved in using this data, because some categories unavoidably overlap due to being based on different subjects, so we'll just treat them one at a time and then chip away at the total population in the pie chart. The reason we can do that is because Republicans don't look more kindly on people for being a member of a privileged group if they're also a member of a demonized group - i.e., they don't like religiously devout Latinos more than average Latinos, or rich gay people more than average gay people. If you are a member of any group they hate, they hate you period.
However, in the interests of understatement, I only include groups for which there is a strong and consistent case of Republicans demonizing and acting against, and leave out those who are attacked only due to generalized, non-targeted bigotry. We can start with the largest, most obvious, and currently most prominent subject of Republican hatred - women (50.8%):
So right off the bat, they already hate and demonize half of Americans, and we just got started looking at this. And the fact that many women are Republicans doesn't seem to change it one bit - Republican women either go along with the demonization and belittlement of their own sex as a strategic compromise to support other aspects of their agenda, or else actively agree with it and support the messages involved.
The next largest and most obvious category is Hispanics/Latinos of any race (16.3% of the total population). However, since obviously this ethnic category is also divided by gender, that 16.3% partly overlaps with the 50.8% already included in the chart. We have to take into account that 48% of Hispanics/Latinos are women, so we can only advance the red portion of the chart by the compound percentage of the remainder - Hispanic/Latino men of any race (8.5% of total population):
The third largest demographic hated by Republicans is the non-religious, accounting for an overlapping percentage of 16.1%. This is a far more difficult category to break down, because we have to find how many of that percentage are women and Hispanic/Latino men in order to advance the chart by the remainder. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, 41% of the non-religious are women, and 11% are Hispanic/Latino of both sexes.
Now, I haven't been able to find the percentage of non-religious Hispanics/Latinos who are women, so the best we can do is compound that 11% with the 41% of the broader non-religious category who are women, even though that is not scientifically rigorous. So what we have then is the estimation that 4.5% of the non-religious are Hispanic/Latino women, leaving 6.5% of the non-religious as Hispanic/Latino men. Added to the overall 41% who are women, we have to reduce the total non-religious proportion added to the pie chart by 47.5%, yielding 0.161 - (0.161 * 0.475) = about 8.5% more we can add to the red region of the chart. Since we're getting into some extended arithmetic here, please excuse me if I screw up the numbers at any point or if my mathematical logic goes haywire somewhere in a calculation. With the male, non-Hispanic non-religious added:
Democrats are 36% of eligible voters but only 23% of the total population, and a big percentage of that 23% are women. For some damned reason I haven't been able to find exact figures on the percentage of registered Democrats who are women, so we'll have to be cautious and rely on a reasonable figure that errs in favor of reducing the increase to the pie chart, since we're trying for an understatement of just how much of the American people the GOP hates. Let's say that 55% of registered Democrats are women - which tracks with the gender gap, and errs on the side of decreasing the new pie slice.
That leaves 0.23 - (0.23 * 0.55) = 10% of the total population as registered Democratic men, to which we must now apply exclusions for Hispanic/Latino men and non-religious men. This is even trickier, because these are two groups heavily associated with the Democratic Party, and as with women I don't find the data available for registered Democrats. At this point we have to rely on guesswork in the absence of specific information, so the most reliable way forward is to leap to two guesses that seem reasonable in context and uphold the standard of understatement by increasing the exclusion: 8.5% of Americans are Hispanic/Latino men, and their ethnicity breaks much more strongly Democratic than their gender breaks Republican, so it would suffice as a deliberate overestimate to put the figure at 60% of the 8.5% being Democratic voters (which is itself a substantially larger number than registered Democrats).
This means the total population being examined goes down to 0.10 - (0.085 * 0.60) = 4.9%, and we can then focus on the non-religious male exclusion. Since this is getting too involved for guesswork, let's just be brutal and cut it roughly in half, and call it 2.5%:
Now, the percentage of the population identifying as liberal oscillates around 20%, so we can use that as our starting point for this category - one which few would dispute Republicans have a bitter and all-encompassing hatred of. According to some tables on Wikipedia, 54% of liberals are women, 9% of liberals are Hispanic, and 92% of liberals vote Democratic. Let's get the big hairball out of the way and lop off .92 * .20 = 18.4%, leaving 1.6% to be divided among the remaining exclusions. We already assumed that 55% of Democrats are women, so let's compound that with the liberal women figure 0.54 - (0.54*0.55) = an exclusion of 24% of 1.6%. So 0.016 - (0.016*0.24) = 1.2%.
Note I'm deliberately not compounding the sub-exclusions themselves, which serves both to keep the final result understated and also to save me an excruciating level of work I would probably screw up anyway. Now we have to find exclusions for Hispanic men and the non-religious. We'll use the same brutal standard as before in forming the religious exclusion (half), then reduce the remainder by a fifth to maximally account for Hispanic males. This leaves 0.48% as our overlap-free pie piece for liberals thus far, based on the categories we've chosen to address before. As you can see, the pie pieces will invariably get smaller and smaller as you go regardless of which categories you begin with, because each new category has to have parts of itself excluded to account for the categories already dealt with.
So at this point I won't graphically add a new pie piece with each new category, because no matter how significant they are, the exclusions from previous categories will reduce them to smaller and smaller portions. Instead, we'll continue doing the math for each new category, and then add the rest to the chart at the end. Categories remaining: Non-Hispanic blacks, the Underclass, public employees, union workers, LGBT, and Muslims.
Non-Hispanic black people or African-Americans are 12.2% of the total population, and since we're getting into smaller and smaller pie pieces, we can use more convenient estimates to exclude prior categories: Lop off half for women, leaving 6.1%. We don't have to do any exclusions for Latino men because the census datum I used specifically deals with non-Hispanic black people. About 12% of the total is non-religious, so if we just haphazardly assume that breaks down equally between men and women, we can reduce the total by 6% of itself: 0.061 - (0.061*0.06) = 5.7%. Black voting hovers around 90% Democratic, so that exclusion yields 0.057 - (0.057 * 0.90) = 0.57%. Then if we just assume that liberalism follows the same patterns among this narrowed segment of black voters as it does nationally, we can once again adopt a brutal standard and cut the figure in half, leaving a pie piece of about 0.29% (I won't bother with thousandths of a percent).
The Underclass is about 12% of the US population, and Republicans hate these people with a true passion. Now, they probably also hate the working poor, working class, and middle-class, but we should be humble enough to err on the side of saying they merely disregard these classes and trample on them at every opportunity - but it's undeniable that they HATE the underclass with a fervid, drooling kind of burning bloodlust. Since there isn't a lot of engagement with the underclass, and they don't have many opportunities to participate in polls, we have to make some assumptions about their religious beliefs and political viewpoints despite a relative lack of participation in elections. First though, we know that women make a disproportionately large percentage of the underclass, so we can cut the proportion by 60%: .12 - (.12 * .60) = 4.8%. Black and Latino men will also share a disproportionately high percentage, so we can just go berserk and cut it another 80%: .048 - (0.048 * .80) = 0.96%. We can reasonably say the overwhelming majority are liberal, or would be liberal if their opinions are ever asked, so we can reduce it a further 90%: 0.96% - (0.0096*.90) = beneath our self-established threshold of thousandths of a percent, so we can end the exercise there.
We could go on at this point finding ever-decreasing slivers of the pie chart corresponding to public employees, union workers, LGBT, and Muslims, but I think we've hit upon a converging limit for where the final pie chart would end up. And I should stress that the final pie chart doesn't necessarily indicate how much Republicans hate any given group, and it doesn't indicate the demographic size of any group other than the one arbitrarily chosen to be first since every group afterward has to be pared down to remove overlaps with the previous ones. So many groups end up with short shrift regardless of where you start. I started with women, but it would be equally valid to start with any other category mentioned. In other words, the pie pieces are irrelevant - all the matters is the final pie and the red zone vs. blue zone.
Basically, the sum of the remaining pie pieces would end up being somewhere around 1% of the total, so we can show our final pie chart indicating what proportion of the American people Republicans hate:
As an epilogue, there is a case to be made that Republicans hate everyone who isn't white, including Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Asians, and also immigrants of any background, but there isn't the same particular emphasis in their propaganda and dog-whistle campaigning. So we should be understated and leave those out. Likewise, we know there is a lot of endemic anti-Semitism among conservatives, but the Republican Party is usually diligent in avoiding that association. And while they often demonize the Northeast and West Coast, they mainly do so in the South and Midwest, so there is no reason to suppose Republicans in the deprecated regions despise their own states. Similarly, although they work against the interests of the middle-class, they know better than to openly demonize it.
Basically, the blue portion of the chart above is overwhelmingly people whom Republicans merely do not go out of their way to demonize or harm, but who they're indifferent toward and more than willing to trample for the benefit of the vanishingly small sliver of the chart whose interests they actually serve and whose rights (and privileges) they care about: White, Christian conservative Republican men of Northern European descent, heterosexual orientation, with multimillion-dollar incomes or higher working at private-sector executive positions or self-employed in for-profit businesses. The number of people in this country who satisfy all of those criteria wouldn't fill a professional football stadium, but that is basically whom the Republican Party exists to serve. In their eyes, 71.3% of the American people - and that's a bare minimum number - are considered their enemies, and virtually all of the remainder are to be ignored or manipulated as the situation dictates.
So now you have a concrete talking point: The Republican Party hates 71% of Americans. This is how much Republicans hate America. Now, the above work is undoubtedly an abomination in the eyes of any professional statistician, but it is a reasonable reflection of reality and I invite anyone with better skills than I to make a more rigorous approach to the question if they wish. But I stand by my results, and they're more than good enough to smack around conservatives with, considering how I've bent over backwards to reduce the size of the red area of the chart. Once again, the money shot:
