To study a University-professor, large-scale, Trump era, says protests in Washington, the media give the wrong impression about who out of the crowd, while last weekend the anti-gun March for Our live demonstration.

“My research tells a different story, took part in the March for Our lives — and it is more complicated and less well-packaged for prime time,” University of Maryland sociology Professor Dana R. Fischer wrote in a Wednesday story for the Washington Post.

Fisher’s study shows that, while the reporting focuses on the young people to March for gun control in the Wake of last month’s shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — 90 percent of the amount was actually for adults. She said that the average age of adults in the amount of just under 49.

“In contrast to what has been reported in many media accounts, was the DC March for Our lives amount to in the first place a matter for the young people,” Fisher wrote. “Only about 10 percent of the participants were under the age of 18 years.”

Fisher said that her team sampled 256 people were randomly.

Your research is a book with the title “American Resistance” and appears after the midterm elections.

Fischer also expressed skepticism that all of those who showed, in March, it was in the first place, because their views on guns. Some said they came for entertainment.


“The March for Our lives, had said the allure of a ‘ free-concert — in fact, the event well-maintained website is a list of artists, but never listed the speaker,” you. “But it is one thing to observe turn out to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ariana Grande lead, and quite another to vote in the midterm elections in November.”

The research follows an imaging company to say, the turnout at the March was a lot of claims to less than that of the organizers.

Organizers of the demonstration claimed on Sunday that some 850,000 people attended the pro-gun control event.

But Virginia-based Digital Design & Imaging Service Inc., what is the use of to calculate air shots, the quantity of the sizes, reported on the event’s peak mass, the size of 202,796 people.
