    So, liberals are smarter than conservatives according to that study. Now, that should produce some interesting discussion.

    How about it, are liberals smarter?

    I was smart enough not to vote for Bush even once.

    Well, seeing as I've yet to hear him propose any real liberal policies, I 'm sakeptical of the claim that he was elected by liberals.


    Hell, Lenin called his party the Bolsheviks, but I've never heard anyone ever claim they were actually a majority.

    interesting. and it may be true. but my understanding is that there is a 7 point standard deviation in the results of the Stanford-Binet IQ Test. That would mean if the results were + or - 7, the findings for liberals and conservative are almost identical in this test. Moreover, average IQ is 100. For IQ to be superior, it would have to be substantially above that. Finally, there have been other studies which indicate the higher the IQ, the greater the level of sexual promiscuity, as opposed to monogamy as indicated in the study you cited.
