Stupid People Love Bush
New Study Shows Correlation Between
Decline Of IQ And Rise Of GOP


By Will Durst
10-30-4

"Stupid people love Bush" new study proves According to the prestigious Southern California think tank, The Gluton Group, stupid people prefer President George W Bush over Senator John Kerry by a 4-to-1 margin.

As Chief Resident Dr. Louis Friend characterized the results of the research, "the less intelligent you are, the more you like Bush." This landmark study, conducted over a 5 month period, involved 2400 likely voters bridging all economic stratas in the 17 states generally considered up for grabs on November 2nd. Participants were tested for intelligence, then asked to fill out a 12 page series of questions involving the Presidential candidates with results released earlier this week.

The consensus: the higher the IQ, the less people trust Bush and respect the job his administration has done. The lower the IQ, the more people admire his steadfastness. "It was pretty much a slam dunk.

There's no nice way to say this. Dumb people like him. They think his unwavering nature is a positive personality trait. They even venerate him for never admitting mistakes, even when he's wrong. On the other hand, smart people think he's a lying bully. I mean, c'mon, you have a deserter accusing a decorated veteran of treason.

Who's going to buy that besides stupid people?"

Preliminary results:

IQ Above 140: Kerry 80%, Bush 20%.

120-140: Kerry 65%, Bush 35%.

100-120: Kerry 54%, Bush 46%.

80-100: Bush 54%, Kerry 46%.

60-80: Bush 60%, Kerry 15%,

Dale Earnhardt Jr. 25%.

I'm still looking for more on The Gluton Group

surely they didn't need a study to make these findings. i would of thought it was obvious in the first place?

I think you killed your contention in the first line - Rense.com. I think one has to be very gullible (won't say stupid) to believe anything you read on Rense.com.

I would have to see the actual composition of the 2400 would be voters. Did it include an IQ test? Personally it has all the hallmarks of Rense propaganda. When was the last time that rense or any of his contributors were concerned with fact or truth?

Ironically, this is a parody of something that is absurd in and of itself: the phenomenon of instant pundits issuing press releases to reinforce political propaganda efforts.

In other words, good old perception management. This forum in particular is packed with people whose opinions are fed to them by people trained to manipulate them like animals.

The question to ask is this: Are you one of them?

Hint: If your first impulse upon seeing a news item is to believe it because it agrees with your prejudices, then you belong to somebody. Based on what I've seen here, business is booming.

Without naming names, some posters have unwittingly identified themselves in this and other ATS forums as paid disinformation specialists, while others have made it clear that they will believe anything said specialists feed them. It is an interesting kind of intellectual ecology.

You are free to believe what you want to believe, of course, as is everyone. When you surrender that choice to someone just because they know how to manipulate you, however, you have been pwned.

Peace out.

As most of us have learned from our months and years here, never ever trust or believ what you read at Rense.

Not being an american and looking from the outside in I do think that Bush and Kerry for that matter are faced with the same problem regardless of who wins.

However on the topic of this thread when you meet someone, talk to them, listen etc (you get the picture) you generally begin to either like or dislike them, this i am guessing is a basic human ability to judge others.

SO maybe Bush generates this kind of belief in others in this way.
Regardless of all the problems in the US and around the world Bush is not responsible for them all.

My point being you don't need to have a high IQ to be able to judge others.

This seems eliteist to me.

I cant find anything of substance on the Gluton Group or this Dr. Louis Friend
Either way I still find it funny though.

After a quick search, there is no "Gluton Group", there is no "Dr. Louis Friend", and the esteemed scholar "Will Durst" cannot properly format a date (10-30-4), maybe he's an Earnhardt fan.

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but wheneever there is a "Man on the Street" poll done, the same ones who cannot name the vice-president are the same ones who say they will vote for Kerry.
Now, I know there is a difference between ignorance and intelligence, so let me say this:
Could it be that stupid people don't read into a bunch of crap, don't find themselves trying to be "enlightened", and are able to call a spade a spade?

The Glutton Group isnt registered with NIRA.. so I take this poll as a well thought out misinformation campaign blow.

Not only is it not very believable, but it assumes that NASCAR fans are rather ignorant

Just what we need, more profiling.

To "borrow" from Mirthful Me:
NASCAR fans, not just for good ole boys anymore.

Funny that on Hard Ball tonight, they talked about the same thing. The educated vote for Kerry and the not so fortunate are voting for Bush.

I have all the evidence I need.

As to this study it definitely is a Hoax, I think it a shame that politics have been reduced to a level this low, or has it really gotten worse.

Spotting a trend, Friend cautioned, "Because of the deterioration in public education, larger and larger segments of the population are creeping downward IQ-wise, cementing the hold Republicans have on the electorate." However, if the election were held today, Bush would hold a lead of 52-48 in the popular vote, but would be virtually tied in the Electoral College, which Bush supporters argue against because the word College angers them. When contacted, a Kerry spokesman just chuckled. No Bush spokesperson was made available for comment. It was also found that Ralph Nader supporters were the brightest of all political proponents tested, but Dr. Friend dismissed them as "too smart for their own good."

In a related study, smart people prefer baseball because the pace is such that there is time to read.


Only stupid people will fall for this one and judging by this there are plenty out there who have:

The Gluton Group

The fact is that IQs are rising in the US and the evidence is that tests are having to be renormed about every decade to account for the higher raw scores achieved by those tested.

Dontchas just love it when people start saying "well golly if youre not voting for my guy youre a cretin"

Just cause I dont agree with you, doesnt make me dumb.

I think the point is that people who fall for this hoax have the smaller IQ. There are many intelligent people who would vote for both candidates.
