Actually only half of the top 20 most population-dense states match the top educated states, and they all happen to be in the New England area,
otherwise, there seems to be no trend. And a comparison to the largest urban centers in the US yields no correlation whatsoever, meaning the degree
rates aren't tied to urban population sizes - meaning the only standing trend in voter preference is by education, not percentage urban population.
I'd still have questions like why a state with Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and Austin (five of the top 20 largest cities in the US) is
so far behind in educational attainment AND democrat voters from states like Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, and other states that have lower urban
populations, lower poverty rates, and other factors you seem to want to imply are at fault for progressive-leaning. You were quick to criticize the
validity of my statistical argument, and then countered with an argument with no validity at all. You wouldn't happen to be bending the facts to fit
your opinion instead of basing your opinion on facts, would you?
