It’s a different sort of state-by-state comparison

And now that you’ve hopefully looked at this and gotten a laugh: It’s a hoax 🙁

In a fit of boredom last night, I went ahead and made my own chart using stats found on an education-related site.
Average Bush state IQ: 99.3
Average Gore state IQ: 100.9

Yeah, I saw this months ago and found out it was a “hoax”… but, how hard can it be to make a real version? All you need are average state IQs and voting records. I figured the problem is that not enough people take IQ tests anymore to be able to create a state average… *shrug*

Googling for links to the hoax, I see “this”:
A site claiming more verifiable statistics that show politics and IQ don’t co-segregate, but income does. Not surprising, since these data were derived from SAT and ACT scores, and if you’re not worried about finding food or paying rent, it’s easier to study.
