Is there any credible evidence that Consevatives have stronger marriages, more robust family values, or significantly lower divorce rates than any other Americans?

If not, why is this myth prepetually promoted as true?

How do you draw that conclusion?

I mean, I started looking it over and was like....ok...ok....hey wait...where is the marriage rate?

Meaning, you can't get divorced if you don't get married.

There are a number of other key variables missing and nowhere are there any comments made with regards to co-variance.

I'm also curious how you can interpret a chart with such poor titles like the "Divorce rate" which appears to be some sort of ranking but the numbers don't even make sense for that since they aren't broken up in deciles etc.

That charts more like a rohrshack test than anything.

I agree, as interesting as that chart is, it's lacking to support your statement.

Lastly, unless you put that chart together yourself, you should provide a link since they compiled the information.

Lowest Divorce Rates By State

Well, not if this is any indication. People in blue states are not in as much of a rush to get married and pop out babies at such a young age. Maybe they're more likely to live together first, and discover they hate each other BEFORE someone slips on a ring. It makes much more fiscal sense.
