Thanks, Peter,

I will try to address your comments soon-- I need some time to think about them.

Emil:

I’m pretty much ready to upload my revision and host everything at OSF, but first I have a comment, and then a question.
 
1. My comment regards how to interpret the size of the key effect here (i.e., the -.65 beta for IQ predicting Trump when controlling White). I still think it’s a large effect. As you note, it’s only 1.8 IQ points because the state SD is 2.7 (not 15). I guess I still don’t understand why we should impute the 1.8 points to individual IQ scores with a SD of 15, given that the paper uses only state-level data.
 
2. Robustness tests. Frankly, I don’t know how to do these, nor do I have a stats package like R (or have ever used it). Here is a plot for the key effect in my paper (IQ predicting Trump when White is in the equation). I don’t see data points bunched up on the left side relative to the right side. I’m not sure what to do next, so any guidance is appreciated.

p.s. The biggest outlier is Vermont, for some reason.

ETA, I guess this BBS doesn't like SPSS output tables, so I've attached it as a file.
