The Old School GOP just doesn't have any concept of what is going on in cyberspace this election.


That was funny.

So Republicans are too 'dumb' to use the 'internets'!

Come July Sanders supporters are in for a RUDE AWAKENING.





They aren't using it effectively by ignoring social media. You forget the GOP signs my pay checks. They're idiots.

Too many of them don't have access to the 'internets' - let alone know how to use it......

all they have is MSM tv....and we all know what that means: uninformed, low-information, media-brainwashed IGNORANCE. Not their fault. Just the only available info outlets they have.

How many "Republicans" without home internet access know they can just go to their Public Library (ew, a socialist service!) and get online? How many bother?



You can prove all that right?

Or are you just blowing hot air?

Busted link as usual.

And I bet they won't show where the "Republican" voting pockets are.

As usual? It worked fine for me.

Oh well. I'm not interested in proving it.
The Deep South has its issues - educational attainment is one of them.
One wouldn't expect that the majority of residents of the Deep South are highly educated or connected. It is what it is.
Sure, plenty of people have been to college; but we're talking about Evangelical country - not so involved in online debate and discussion and awareness as other parts of the country.

Just saying. It made sense to me when I saw the article (wherever it was) that stated as much.

Try clicking on the link. It don't work.

And you didn't even put in the http.

Your assumptions are all wrong anyway.

LOL!!! You're right - my bad. I didn't provide the link - just the title. Here ya go:
statescoop.com...

And, I'm not "assuming" anything. I'm just reading the web, like everyone else.

I don't recall exactly where I saw the original data - it was shortly after Super Tuesday - but it talked about how Hillary was favored in the deep south and part of it had to do with the lag in education and internet access in that area.

I'm too tired to argue with you, xuen.

Carry on.
Turn me into a frog, take away my birthday, stamp "no dessert" on my ID card...whatever.

You win. Happy?

Oh, but WAIT!
Here's this:
Why the South lags behind when it comes to home broadband use


States in the Deep South have among the lowest rates in the country of households connected to broadband, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey.

Just 57.4 percent of Mississippi residents live in households with broadband Internet use. Many other Southern states rounded out the top 10 least connected, with Arkansas at the second to last, and other states, including Alabama, Kentucky and Louisiana, also reporting low levels of home broadband use.

The reason is pretty obvious once you compare the above map to one that shows median household income.

Mississippi, the state with the lowest rate of broadband use, also has the lowest median household income in the country: just below $38,000. Other Southern states with low connectivity rates ranked near the bottom when it came to incomes, too. States with higher incomes in the Northeast and on the West Coast report higher median household incomes -- and higher levels of home broadband use.

And with that, my darling xuen, I'm out of here for tonight.
Sorry for the lame link formatting.
Now you have the proper clickables.
Talk to you later love you bye!

I suppose the question here is - What causes the low iq's? If they had access to internet, better wages, etc, would the iq of those states rise? Is there a problem with the education there or something?

Regardless, those states do have lower iq's, they are arguably less informed, and arguably less likely to vote for Bernie Sanders.

Can anyone refute the logic that a more informed, more intelligent person is likely to vote for Bernie Sanders?

Don't give me some stupid example like you know one guy with a high iq that likes Hillary.

I'm talking about the iq statistics and how well they seem to be confirming this so far.

I bet most of the problem in Mississippi is in Democrat voting pockets.

Unless you can show otherwise.

lots of square miles of Democrats!

What causes the low IQs is a multi-faceted prob.

We can talk about median income, state funding for teachers' salaries, poor access to prenatal and postnatal support, nutrition, family systems, etc and so on and so forth.
But, for now, I'm out of here. Gotta crash.
I love sleeping more than I love arguing politics and religion.

A more informed person would NEVER trust a career politician.

They would know the heart of the American ethos and find a common man unwilling to lead, but whose disposition mandates he be thrust into power.

They would look to their neighbors and community for the worthy.

We do not know how to "democracy". So we revel in what we got.

Your side is this, my side is less evil by this or that evil your side is.

No. There are so few who can be called true and informed that its more like finding a needle in a world of hay.

Last note for tonight - you are right - it is the unwilling philosphers who would make the best governors. Plato.
Philosopher Kings.

Sadly, the USA doesn't recognize that concept very well.

goodnight all

Haha. That's funny that statistically people have a lower IQ if they vote for Hillary. Im sure she will win if that's the case

Well that wasn't the statistic.

The statistics show that the lower iq states really lean for Hillary. Like give her overwhelming wins.

She won in Massachusetts, one of the top iq states - but by a much more barrow margin.

The individual iq of each person voting for her.. I wouldn't claim to know, and won't claim that they are all certainly lower iq, just that big groups with lower iqs across entire states push for her.

Prediction based on this post - she wins with a good lead in Mississippi, and one of them win with a lower gap in Michigan.

We will see if the trend keeps up or is even a trend heh.

Would we even know what these people look like these days? I Suppose someone like Neil Degrasse Tyson COULD be that type of person if he wouldn't shut the f*** up about his personal opinions about God existing. ( Well, maybe he doesn't do this as often as I think - It's just what people quote him for all the time - When true geniuses like Einstein says there's no way to know. )

Anyways.

Looks like my prediction is holding up so far - Mississippi is one of the lowest iq states - and it's showing over 80% Clinton thus far.

Sanders is current winning in Michigan - Which I guessed it would be a closer win for either one of them.

Dude I just said that...

They are one of the lowest, if not the absolute lowest on the iq charts. Statistics show them as being the least or one of the least intelligent states there is.

I predicted Hillary would win with a good lead in Mississippi.

I attribute low IQ's with the religious bible belt. Does not matter if they vote dem or rep.
