Fox News accidentally insults all Mitt Romney voters, LOL

Apparently this election was not only divided along racial and financial lines, but on intelligence lines as well. Our favorite thing about this graphic is that the data Kenny used came from Fox Business, so if you're a Romney voter, this is basically Neil Cavuto accidentally calling you an idiot. Of course, Nevada voted for Obama despite being one of the least educated states, but we can probably chalk that up to the fact that he was the safest bet.

3. It wasn't an accident...

FOX insults their viewers all the time. It's just one big joke to them. They laugh all the way to the bank all the while holding their viewers in contempt.

7. That's for sure

Lots of well-educated idiots out there, and lots of not-much-book-learning smart folks.

High school and college completion indicates education, although it may not correlate as strongly with intelligence.

12. On an individual basis I agree with you, but for a large sample size, this is very telling.

Alternatively, we can poll the various states and ask the people how old they believe the earth to be. The lists will look quite similar.

14. I believe

 

you don't necessarily have to be an idiot if you don't have a college degree....if you self educate yourself by reading and staying informed on things you're good to go.... saying things like 'get your government hands off my Medicare' or ' i'm moving to Australia to get away from this socialist country' is idiotic. This statistical report is very surprising to me because i did not know this...wow!!

9. Yeah, the graphic was made from the info in the article so Fox viewers aren't actually

getting the connection. They would have to leave their bubble to find out the truth.

15. I think what bothers me more is that in the best educated state, it's only 39.1%

Last edited Sat Nov 10, 2012, 02:57 AM - Edit history (1)

...with a BA or BS?

Probably why we only rate 4th of most educated countries in the world.

Who's #1?

10 most-educated countries are:

1. Canada

2. Israel

3. Japan

4. United States

5. New Zealand

6. South Korea

7. United Kingdom

8. Finland

9. Australia

10. Ireland
