Intelligent by what measure? An IQ test written and taught by liberal academics. Excuse me if I find you tool to be somewhat blunt and biased.

Google "Chitlin test" and report back here for you reaming.

When you can't pass the test, you discredit it. It's not my fault conservatives have low IQ.

In that case, let me know if and when liberals ever have those two traits.

Because social science studies research is so reliable...

"Scientific theories cannot be confirmed, an eminent philosopher of science has argued; they can only be falsified. But facts can be confirmed.And here’s a fact about a famous (now infamous) social scientist: He’s a fraud.It’s been confirmed.The fascinating case of social psychologist Diederik A. Stapel serves as a cautionary tale. The caution is to those of us who write about science, who ruminate on what we read about science in the news, or anyone just curious about the world.It turns out that not everyone who purports to have discovered something has discovered much of anything. Sometimes they’re simply lying.Stapel is a liar. He’s been caught. He’s even confessed."

Really? Well, I suppose there's a study, somewhere that can say just about anything we need, eh?

I've heard that there's a study that shows that liberalism is linked to, among many things an absence of intuitive ability. What I got from that is that they believe anything they're taught or brainwashed to believe.

Writing in maroon red won't make your point any more credible.

Are Liberals Smarter Than Conservatives? — The American Magazine

I'm a little behind the times since it is from a few years ago. A researcher looked at political views and tried to link them to intelligence. It wasn't the case that conservatives in general or Republicans had lower intelligence levels, but social conservatives were shown to have lower levels of intelligence. That would include people who vote based on values and not conservative financial principles.

It's an interesting study. In thinking about the outcome, it does make sense to me. I've challenged social conservatives to debates on several fronts (as I do with people of all political mindsets) and in the end when all of their rationalizations are shot down, it all comes back to emotion as their justification. Perhaps these people have a left side of the brain that is weak and thus dominated by the right.

I'd be interested to see if anyone has found any other studies in similar peer reviewed journals.
It's clear as a bell conservatives have lower intelligence than liberals. Just look at the Republican candidates, who amount to buffoons. Hell, Herman Cain's farewell words of "wisdom" were from the Pokemon movie!

He probably saw it with one of his ho's while his wife was making his dinner.

Leading the same to call the ability to fall for anything "an open mind".
