This would also explain why Fox New viewers are rated as least informed. The southern redneck vote is in the tank for the GOP. Just tell them they are all geniuses and all their problems can be blamed on someone else, and they fall right in line. They don't know enough to know they are getting screwed by guys like Rush, Mitt, Rupert, and their Wall Street chronies.

North Carolina is the 10th largest state by population and is becoming more educated and liberal. It's a stark contrast to South Carolina which has smaller cities, is poorer, less educated and is a deep red state. South Carolina is also the most racist southern state after Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia.




Well now. The liberals think that the 100,000 in Ohio for Obama was a whopping victory. Which is it? And how do you figure SC is more racists than any other state? I see a lot of racism in Western NC. And since you live in the South and constantly run it down can you name a state in the North or anywhere in this nation that is free of racism? Huh? No you say? Welcome to the real world.

And if you made any sense in your ignorant posts I would rejoice. You total ignorance about the people of the South is astounding to say the least. Why is it that the ignorant have to come here and show off their stupidity?

The electoral map was picture-perfect, in the end:

Obama:
- the liberal Northeast, solid
- the liberal Pacific Coast, solid
- the liberal Scandi-Lutheran Upper Midwest, solid
- the auto industry states he salvaged (situation specific)
- schizophrenic Florida, where Hispanics now outnumber Medicare Mabels who had no business voting for Romney
- a sea of blue in "drive your Subaru" Colorado and New Mexico

Romney:
- the heavily churched heartland, solid - conservative, though not LDS
- the heavily chuched Southeast, solid - conservative, though not LDS (shockingly, only THREE counties around metro ATL went Obama, while the white-bread counties went Romney)
- the Mormon-Goldwaterish swath up the Intermountain West - UT, ID, AZ, etc.

And then people get on my case about stereotyping? Though, in this case, I would label it as "profiling."

Liberals, meet the elephant in the room. The least educated states also have the highest black populations.

Six-tenths of one percent - .6%

Nate Silver gave Romney a 50.3% chance of winning FL. Nate turned the state pale blue a day or two before the election. Previously it had been leaning pink.

Results:

Barack Obama
Dem. 4,169,972 - 49.9%

Mitt Romney
Rep. 4,117,602 - 49.3%

I can think of a real simple answer to what seems like a complicated question. About 21% to 22% of the undergraduate degrees awarded in America are in business administration. I think that skews things a little, don't you?

Lol, so you're saying that white people in the south are all educated? Really...LOL. My little town of Conyers just 25-30 miles east of Atlanta had a bunch of dumb rednecks who are the stereotypical conservatives.

And I guess it proves that the white people in liberal areas are just overall smarter then the white people in conservative areas and knew voting Obama was the right choice.

And historically, southern, red states were always lower on education because they always put god and white pride first over education.
