My sister and I were discussing politics and this illegal imigration problem
She told me she listens to this talk show where they go out into the streets and ask people questions, like
Who is the Vice President of the U.S.

the horror is, people don't know?

I even wrote, that a family friend served on Homeland security, and the terrorists are here, they have camps here and someone wrote,

Your crazy, they are not here?

Well, they were here during 911 were they not, taking flying lessons and living in America.

The Boston Bombers were here and living here in the U.S.

But I guess I must be lying?

I mean, these people vote....and they only vote according to their political party, but that is all they know, they don't know any more, they don't care nor do they want to know any more????


and these people vote?

What's your take?

The average American has an IQ of 96, thus being below normal intelligence. Beyond IQ, most Americans are more interested in reality television and sports than politics. Further we have a nation in which essentially half pay no taxes and/or are on government support.

As long as there are Americans with the above characteristics, there will always be democrats.

If the 2012 election taught us anything, it is that an inferior candidate can be placed in the White House by low information morons. Do not count out another liberal presidential candidate in 2016 for these very same reasons.

It is a shame how everything in the U.S. has deteroriated, including accurancy in job performance.

Actually, liberals have higher IQs than conservatives on average. As a matter of fact the more conservative one is the lower the IQ...or so I have read.

Obama won 70% of the High School Drop Out vote.

Very high IQ tends to be liberal, but not exclusively. Little or no education also tends to vote Obama.

Doesn't seem to make sense. IQ is positively correlated with educational attainment level (higher education level, higher IQ) and with income level (higher income, higher IQ).

64% of those who never even finished high school vote for Democrats.

And higher income earners are more likely to vote Republican.

You do realize that the talk shows that highlight ignorant people in man-on-the-street interviews are EDITED to show that, do you not? They do not show all the people who knew who the VP is. They only show the stupid answers that get a laugh and let the audience smirk with illusions of superiority. Try not to be so gullible.)

My take?

My take is that the vast majority of Americans have little or no critical thinking skills. And a stunning majority probably do not understand how the media manipulates "the news".......even in 2014.

Little or no education tends to not vote at all, actually. But when they do, they vote for the person who best represents their interests. That makes them smarter than many other voters in that regard.
