Science, Emotion, and Identity: Where Party Affiliation Matters to Young Americans
Jeff Bladt

“ Confusingly, young people are more opposed to Trump’s travel ban — 62% overall disapprove — than they are accepting of Syrian refugees: 50% overall agree. The more extreme reaction to the travel ban, a question in our survey that included Trump by name, than to the specific issue of Syrian refugees, a question that made no mention of Trump, suggests that broad disapproval of Trump is translating into outsized disagreement with any policy naming or explicitly associating with him.”

This is a huge leap of logic.

Can you please explain this apparent non-sequitur?

The final clause of this paragraph cannot be assumed a priori, it must be better evidenced; particularly as it does not follow at all from the evidence.
