Avram, you probably know that statistics is commonly used to understand a large number of people. Polls preceding elections are very influential, at least on leaders who adjust their positions accordingly. In the case of right wing attitudes, I used the phrase "tend to". This is a code word for a statistical truth, which means that not every individual member of the group has such an attitude, but a significant majority does. As far as Mizrahim and Sephardim, I DEFINED what I meant. Why did I use Sephardim? Because most Jews abroad are used to the term Sephardim. They may not even know what Mizrahim means.
