I guess I should have elucidated my real point more clearly ... I just didn't want to sound too brash.

The reason I didn't question the data had nothing to do with the rather large and questionable deviation between Utah and Connecticut IQ levels which do appear to be well beyond reasonable, (even taking into consideration the standard deviation of 15 points). My actual point was that it is thoroughly believable that the IQ levels across the board could be that low based on my personal experience with the general public.

That point is further supported by the back and forth between leftist democrats and right wing republicans, as exemplified here, both claiming the other side to be the real dummies. As far as I'm concerned, any reasonable examination would conclude that both sides are on the edge of low grade moron status to believe there is any significant difference between these two clubs of criminals in Washington DC, and an 87 IQ would be a generous assumption for the whole lot.

That better?
