Election breakdown by states

Sadly I lost the site this came from. Hopefully someone will find it.

    It’s at happyplace.com — look under election infographic.
    It wasn’t hard: their logo appears at the bottom of the chart.

    Actually the exit polls show college graduates were slightly more likely to vote for Romney (51%).

    The fact that blue starts have more college graduates simply means blue states are better at education than red states, not that more educated people vote democrat. Although that’s true as well, because 55% of postgraduates voted Obama.

    If you enlarge the graph, the fine print notes that happyplace got the data from FoxBusiness dot com, who got it from the official US Census data.

    I’m sure that HappyPlace could have gotten the data from lots of sources, but it seems they chose the most ironic pathway.

    Man, liberals and their fancy “college degrees”, studying their “discernible reality” and “facts”.

    Well, the solution is easy.

    If Republicans want to get back into power, they need to defund education, fire teachers, defund PBS, and slash Pell Grants.

    It’s the only way to regain American Greatness.

    That says it all really.

    Except, what’s up with Nevada?

    I saw a similar graphic for the Bush/Kerry election. I shouldn’t be surprised to learn if this is rather normal.

    Would be nice to get a meta analysis done on this; like, all the elections from the past 50 years or so…
