Here are a couple paragraphs from an interesting article concerning voting:

"Last Tuesday’s special Senate election for John Kerry’s old Senate seat went mostly unnoticed as it was buried by larger political stories during the week. In the end, the Democrat Ed Markey won by a comfortable but unremarkable 10-point margin over Republican Gabriel Gomez 55-45. In a state as blue as Massachusetts, those numbers are hardly anything to crow about. However, upon closer inspection, there is one data point that stands out. In the city of Cambridge, home to both Harvard University and M.I.T, Ed Markey beat Gomez 89-11 percent. That data point stands as a testament to how toxic the Republican Party has become for high information voters.

With their disdain for intellectuals, their flat refusal to acknowledge global warming, their denial of evolution and their inability to comprehend that rape can result in pregnancy, the modern, heavily tea-stained version of the Republican Party is simply unpalatable to the vast majority of scientists, professors and other educated professionals. As GOP candidates continue to pander to aging white religious fundamentalists and conspiracy theorists, they undermine their own hopes for reclaiming the White House in 2016."

I suspect if we polled our civilian and military personnel right here on our own nuclear submarine base, you'd have a similar finding. Intelligent citizens simply cannot tolerate Republican / Teapublican ignorance and policies. I know I can't.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. I lacked 3 courses of picking up a BS in Economics and a BA in History at the same time. I also have a Master of Science degree in Computer Science. If I say so myself, I am a VERY high information voter and I VERY strongly support conservatives and the TEA Party.

This article seems to define a low information voter as someone who doesn't agree with their elitist liberal agenda.

It is a shame that you didn't let us know the source or provide a link. It might be interesting to see what you DIDN'T show us from the article.

Yes, well...the flagship of your proud democratic administration....ObamaCare... had one of it's major mandates pushed back a year, just today, by a democratic government that is just now realizing that their grand socialist dream simply won't work.

Of course, had Congress actually bothered to read it before they voted...but of course they couldn't, because Nancy Pelosi so famously said "We have to pass it so we can seee what's in it."...then it would have been obvious that, while national healthcare is a doable thing, ObamaCare is a disaster in the making.

The military is typically conservative. If you were able to poll the base, I suspect you'd find the numbers not in your favor. Speculation on both of our parts.

But we have a President that was against gay marriage; then for it; then against it; and then for it. All based on his statements during his political career. Spent over 20 years sitting in Jeremiah Wright's church, listening to those venemous sermons, and then once it becomes news, he changes churches.

Just promised 7 billion to Africa. Where does he plan to get it? From those already on welfare and soon-to-be Obamacare?

Since JFK, there hasn't been a democratic President worth his weight in skin. Obama's legacy will be as the President that sent the United States of America into a tailspin that it will be lucky to recover from.

I'm not a big fan of the Republican party, either, but the Democratic party, right now, is more of a threat to us than North Korea, Iran, Russia, and Al Qaeda...combined.

You expect us to believe you have all those degrees including a Masters in Computer Science and you can't find the source of the quoted information? If true, I'd say you're as dumb as a barn, which, I guess, would explain your Republican and Tea Party affection.

Dumb as a barn you really are.

LonePalm didn't say he couldn't find it he simply asked why the idiot poster didn't provide it?

If you and the poster are educated I'm glad to say I'm not!

Absolute nonsense.. laughable!!
Aybody with a grain of sense knows the non productive all voted for the democrats as they are the ones who are on welfare, food stamps, unemployment, get free housing,utilities, and cell phones or are government workers. They are the ones who ONLY want more from the US Treasury and everyone knows the democrats will give them what ever they want for their votes. And I very much doubt that those listed above are among the highly intelligent!!

Hmmm interesting.
As I recall over 90% of the blacks who voted in the last election voted for Obama so therefore we can assume the blacks have the highest intelligence.
Same reasoning applies to all those on welfare and unemployment must be the most intelligent as they voted democratic to get more goodies from the taxpayer..
LOL LOL LOL
Another thing..there are millions who think this "global Warming" issue is nonsense. If you would look at the research you would see that the original studies were flawed as some years were omitted as they wouldn't fit the researchers goal.
DID YOU READ THOSE STUDIES ??

Please try to write sentences that make sense.
What science? There are many many scientists that disagree with the studies on global warming as well as anybody that has a grain of common sense..
You probaby believed back in the 70's that the ice age was coming because the newpapers said so over and over again/

sorry i don't write well enough for you but thanks for agreeing with me. but weren't we talking about voting on this post not global warming? but any way, right now there are only a handful of scientists which are probably bought off because they've not published any peer reviewed work that disclaims global warming as really an ongoing world threat. i think our navy chief of operations has said publicly it's his worst nightmare concern keeping him awake at night. but back to voting i still think the cambridge democrat voting numbers are truth telling about intellect. and republicans not believing in science is the root cause.
