The GOP has the brains, the Dems have the girly men? — A new poll shows that Republicans are much more knowledgeable about politics and history than Democrats, reports TheDC’s Neil Munro:
“Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats. On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey ‘Partisan Differences in Knowledge.’ The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party.”
In fairness, the poll also showed Democrats to be far superior to Republicans in several ways, such as acting smug and drinking fair trade coffee.
