Democrats are, on the whole, just nicer people.

Do you find this to be the case? Not 100%, but in general?

7. Trump fans are rude and obnoxious, and they're proud of being rude and obnoxious.

And yes by that I do believe that we are indeed nicer people.

9. As a rule I'd say yes.

In my (probably biased) experience, Liberals demonstrate greater empathy than Conservatives, especially as it pertains to people outside of their immediate demographic and/or social group.

Not sure whether that attitude leads to a more Liberal mindset, or if a Liberal mindset inclines one toward greater empathy...
