Average IQ stats of people in U.S. election states

Warning: This does not describe all democrats and republicans...so please don't take offence! I couldn't attach the file I received on email (too big), but found a website that has it. Interesting stuff....

Oh, I'm so shocked. Not.

Only one red state with a triple digit IQ and only two blue states WITHOUT a triple digit IQ. Is this supposed to be some kind of surprise? People on the coasts are traditionally more intelligent. There is evidence that proves this.

While on the topic, I'd like to bring up a classic moment from the Woody Allen movie "Everybody Says I Love You".

One of the main characters in the movie, played by Alan Alda, is a liberal. His teenage son is a liberal too. Then, suddenly, his teenage son becomes a hard-core conservative, even joins his school's 'young conservatives club'. His dad is completely baffled. Later in the movie, when a few weeks have passed in the movie, the teenage son collapses. In the hospital, his family is informed by the doctor that he has been suffering from a condition that keeps his brain from getting enough oxygen. The doctors fix the teenage son, and lo and behold, the teenage son reverts to his liberal beliefs.

Obviously it's just a movie, but it's brilliant, razor-sharp nuanced political humor.

Ah, I guess the Kerry voter can find solace in something. If they are all so smart, how come they can't figure out how to get elected?

Well, if it weren't for the rabid anti-intellectualism....

zing!

i find the whole issue of IQ in relation to politics/religion/lifestyle choices/favourite type of dog breed/etc... to be questionable at best. hasn't the whole theory of IQ been exposed as biased towards the white upper-class mindset?

Profound mental retardation (MR) below 20 or 25
Severe MR 20-25 to 35-40
Moderate MR 35-40 to 50-55
Mild MR 50-55 to about 70
Borderline 70-79
Dull normal 80 to 90
Normal 90 to 110
Bright normal 110 to 120
Superior 120 to 130
Very superior 130 and above


So the red states range from 'dull normal' to 'normal', while blue states are 'bright normal'.

Yes. Republicans and those with conservative beliefs are stupid.

I thought stereotypes and prejudice went out style a long time ago.

because we're outnumbered.

if this isn't a justification for the continuation of the Republican assault on public education, i don't know what is.

keep 'em dumb, keep getting elected.



i am being somewhat sarcastic. but i am originally from Connecticut!

I'm from a red state myself. I do disagree with most of my fellow Alabamians on politics. But I don't think it's a matter of IQ, it's more a matter of differing values.

Ha! I can go look for the numbers, but I believe there are more registered Democrats than Republicans.
