I should have included the text that came as part of the gif image of the stats in the file I was sent:

"The IQ numbers were originally attributed to the book "IQ and the Wealth of Nations", though they do not appear in the current edition. The tests and data were administered via the Raven's APT, and The Test Agency, one of the UK's leading publishers and distributers of psychometric tests. This data has been published in the Economist and the St. Petersburg Times, though this does not mean it should be taken as fact."


Also, this is not stereotyping republican and democrat voters. These are simply the average IQ stats of the Bush/Kerry states. It's just rather funny how the Kerry states seem to line up quite drastically with the higher IQ results. Again, no one said all democrats and all republicans fall into that.

well, more than half the people who watch FOX believe Saddam Hussein was behind 9-11, and that we've found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

compare this to the average Daily Show viewer. despite being stoned while watching, they score higher on current events tests than those who watch the O'Reilly factor.

but on a serious note, i think Republicans do a much better job appealing to emotions, and emotions are definitionally anti-intellectual. all the sweeping patriotism, chest-beatin', flag-wavin' proud-to-be-an-american-where-at-least-i-know-i'm-free garbage. Republicans have that shit trademarked.

...OK so all the red state populations should be marched off to concentration camps. Oh, that's right Hitler had around a 135 IQ.

Just because people are intelligent doesn't make them right on any issue. Personally, most PHD's I know have no concept of the practical.

You do realize that most IQ tests are written by white males from New England, I hope? Which would explain why those states do better on them!

Yes, thank you for explaining my oh-so-clever Simpsons reference into oblivion.

I don't know much about IQ tests, but I have plenty of contempt to shower upon a certain group of test-writing pinheads in Princeton, NJ.
