    The Yuppie class votes Democrat.

Not buying that either; there's plenty of intelligent (and not so intelligent) people on both sides of the equation.
    The question isn't that one side has it and one doesn't; its who has more.

    I don't think you mean yuppies. Yuppies are well-off young business guys, typically conservative Trump wannabes. Wall Street possession obsessed folk. Like Alex P Keaton.

    I use the term for the upper class types.

    Democrats don't do well with working class types.

    So, it's not really a surprise that the more college educated crowd is a bit more Democratic.

    Not everyone has the luxury of being able to go to college. That isn't a knock on their character.

    I agree 100%, there are intelligent arguments to be made for both sides IMO. All that matters is what's important to you as a voter

    He's not saying that the other side isn't educated (or saying anything at all). It's simply a presentation of statistics. What about the middle 30 states? There are plenty of places to point to educated Republicans or uneducated Democrats.

    ****, he used Fox Business as the source (or whoever compiled the data did).

    It's a misrepresentation designed to make Republicans look stupid. Nothing more. It's essentially on par with what Howard Stern was doing earlier in the election cycle. I expect more from a genius Columbia Doctor of Physics.

    from PBS:
    Mr. Romney won college graduates (51 percent to 47 percent), Mr. Obama actually won those who had done post-graduate work (55 percent to 42 percent).
    So instead of looking at the association with education with voting patterns itself this genius points to a correlation of a correlation? Sorry I'm tired of the people standing on the left with me antagonizing the opposition needlessly to feel superior. I don't need any of that ********. I know I'm superior. And not because I am on the left, because I have two ears and occasionally bother to use them.

    No it's not. I've seen this post on facebook pages... It's real deep and provides a solid scientific assessment of the effect of education on the election.

    That's sarcasm.

    Please tell me how this isn't a misrepresentation of the association of education and voting if college grads voted more for Romney? It's divisive and childish.
