[Some gathered from my posts on separate boards] [last one: Pew Research Center] 49% of self identified liberals have college degrees. 28% of self identified social conservatives have college degrees. [Pew Research Center] Before you ask, the statistic does not significantly change if one discounts the liberal arts. On Science: Only 35% of conservatives profess a "great deal of trust in science", compared to around 48% for liberals. I think it is rather self evident that conservatives, especially social conservatives, are significantly more likely to reject Evolutionary Theory and Global Warming, in spite of unanimous consensus from every internationally recognized scientific community that exists today. Over 85% of Scientists self identify as democrats, and over 74% as liberals. Before you ask, the statistic is the same for private and public sector professions. http://godlesspaladin.com/2010/08/10/liberal-states-vs-conservative-states-which-are-better/ Richest states (per capita) District of Columbia Delaware Connecticut Alaska Massachusetts Wyoming New Jersey New York Minnesota Virginia Highest percent bellow poverty line (per capita) Mississippi Louisiana New Mexico District of Columbia Arkansas West Virginia Kentucky Texas Alabama South Carolina Most Educated Vermont Connecticut Massachusetts New Jersy Maine Minnesota Virginia Wisconsin Montana New York Least Educated Arizona Mississippi New Mexico Nevada California Lousiana Alaska Alabama Hawaii Tennessee Healthiest Vermont New Hampshire Massachussettes Minnesota Maine Iowa Utah Hawaii Nebraska Connecticut Least Healthy Louisiana Mississippi New Mexico Nevada Oklahoma Texas Florida South Carolina Georgia Alabama Receive the most federal tax dollars District of Columbia New Mexico Mississippi Alaska Louisiana West Virginia North Dakota Alabama South Dakota Kentucky Receive the least federal tax dollars New Jersey Nevada Connecticut New Hampshire Minnesota Illinois Delaware California New York Colorado Most Suicides (per capita) Wyoming Montana Alaska Nevada New Mexico Oregon Colorado Idaho West Virginia Arizona Fewest Suicides (per capita) New York District of Columbia New Jersey Massachusetts Connecticut Rhode Island Illinois Maryland California Ohio Most Teen Pregnancies Texas New Mexico Mississippi Arizona District of Columbia Arkansas Lousiana Oklahomoa Tennessee Georgia Fewest Teen Pregnancies New Hampshire Vermont Massachusetts Connecticut Maine New Jersey Minnesota North Dakota New York Pennsylvania Fascinating?
