25. You can probably do so much better than that

After 2004 I broke the entire electorate into groups of counties by percentage of population that voted for Bush.

I had every US county on a spreadsheet that I matched to official census data.

I compared the percentage of the Bush vote to percentage of a population that had a BA degree or higher.

My chart revealed almost a directly inverse result - from the pool of counties with the highest Bush vote (somewhere in the 18% range had a BA or higher in their populations) to the counties with the lowest (somewhere in the high 28% range, just down from the low 29% range for the counties with the second lowest Bush totals).

It might not be as stark this time, but I'll bet you would find something similar.
