Ha! I had to go back and read your comment to see what you were talking about! No, I know liberaldom includes more college-educated individuals. Not all moderate conservatives are ignorant, however. I'll bet there might even be a few on the FAR right who are pretty smart, along with a few on the far left who aren't.
I'm not offended, Josak. Many people think all southerners fit the stereotype, though - uneducated, toothless, cousin-marrying rednecks.
I don't know if he will win but if he does I believe it will because the independents usually decide the vote anymore. They are not easily swayed by the rhetoric and gut appealing missquotes that the party politic feed into.
Because a lot of people are dependent on his more lenient policies regarding healthcare, food stamps, etc. Why vote for the guy who wants to tighten things up and make it harder for you to get things for free?
Mitt Romney also has a decided lack of eloquence and likability. He has the charm of roadkill and he's too straight-laced. He's a bit self conscious, I think.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Romney supporter. But I am by no means liberal (I can thank my education for that, actually).
Same as I said above, it's statistics, I only posted it because someone claimed the opposite. The Pew Typography research of 2011 covers it, it's remained pretty consistently that way since their first one in the early 90s I believe, college graduates vote liberal which conservatives will say is because they are brainwashed by socialist professors and I will claim is simply because they are more widely read and educated etc. it's not meant as a specific comment on anyone just the valid maths, I am certainly not trying to insult your intelligence.
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on...
I may be a bit naive on this topic, but I believe that my vote should count. I understand the history and all, but I still think one's vote should count, and the candidate who receives the most votes should...
