2. Meh

The wealthy, mostly college-educated residents of the various retirement communities in Arkansas tend to vote for Republicans, while the poorest counties along the Mississippi River with the lowest percentage of college-educated residents tend to vote Democratic. Washington County, which is home to the flagship campus of the University of Arkansas, was slightly blue this time, while Benton County on its northern border, which also has a high proportion of college-educated residents, was blood red. And when I was at the University of Arkansas, the fraternities and engineering and business majors supported Ronald Reagan in overwhelming numbers, while the students majoring in humanities tended to dislike Reagan.

It's more complex than just college- and non-college-educated.
