Actually the state with the highest black population is New York. Not exactly the plantation south by any stretch of the imagination.

Percentage wise Georgia 31% , Louisiana 32%, Mississippi 37% have the largest black population.
New York has only 17% blacks.

New York also has a whole lot more people then any of those states. So while New York has only 17% African Americans. It has well over 3,000,000 African Americans, more then any other state even on your chart.

You do realize that the most educated in most of these states tend to vote more Republican than the least educated?

You also do realize that it is the poorly educated individuals within the red states who were most apt to vote for Obama?

I don't think that you're living in reality.

Georgia has about 10 million people, of which I'd wager that somewhere between three and four million are black.

Exactly. I think that most of the liberals know this but they do not want to admit it. It is very hard for them to face facts.

Check out the exit polls for North Carolina. Those who were the least educated were the far most likely to vote for Obama.
North Carolina Presidential Race - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

Check out the same thing for other states. It is repeated time and time again. In most, the more education one receives, the more likely one is to vote Republican.

The reason the "least educated" states appear to be the most conservative is because the least educated tend to be in higher numbers in those states and vote Democrat, whereas the more educated members of the state are much more likely to vote conservative, solidifying the vote.

In "blue states", while the more educated component is a higher percentage of the population, and while they are more liberal in comparison to the more educated in the red states, there are far more liberals in the state as a whole at every socio-economic level. Still, the same pattern holds: the most educated tend to be more conservative, while the least educated are more liberal (Democrat). The issue of what makes the more liberal/Democrat states more "educated", is the fact that you have fewer individuals who are less educated. It isn't that the more educated are more Democrat, for the percentage of Democrats is higher in the lower economic rungs within these states.

I think that most liberals are simply ignorant on the issues. They see a glimpse of data that they think makes them "superior" without looking deeper into the data. Before they've looked at it, they run their mouth off about how "educated" being liberal (socialist) makes them. Many know the truth, however, and simply figure that conservatives won't defend reality. They're counting on people not to call them out.

Not true.

Prince George's county alone should dispossess you of that notion. It is one of the most educated counties in one of the most educated states and it is 80%+ Democratic.

Just look at a map, or better yet look at exit polls Democrats always win people with Post Graduate education by ample margins Obama won that group by 13%. Again never let facts get in the way of a rightwinger "truth".
