You've heard the claims....
Conservatives are against education. They're ill informed, unenlightened and border on being illiterate.
The implication of course being that smart people tend to vote for democrats. The pitch being made is that if you're smart, you'll vote like the other smart folks.
But is that true? Are conservatives actually simpletons that refuse to vote in their own best interest?
Probably not. In fact, the argument that conservatives are stupid says more about the folks forwarding the argument than those targeted by the insult.
In fact, data supplied by that bastion of conservatism known as the New York Times says otherwise.
