I'm shocked to see my state of Virginia at #17, with an average IQ of 100. What I'm not shocked to see is Texas at #40 with an average IQ of 92. After all, what must one expect from a state that produced W.
It's humoring to show the lower IQ states on this voted for W, but I guess stupid people identify with stupid people better.
Unless "average" in the USA is considerably lower than it is in Canada, then no, "average" does not range from 70-100. This would be news to all the working professionals that I've ever encountered who deal with this shit on a daily basis.
and how do they know the average IQ of each state? do they test people in an ongoing basis?
That was the first thing I was wondering as well but according to the sites Willow posted (and which show different stats, BTW) they base it on the SAT results.
Anyway, the largest Bush supporter amongs my American internet friends is actually one of the most intelligent of my internet friends. I've often felt she was biased on many subjects, have called her on it, but she's not stupid!
Everything you do continues long after you've gone
no but the pattern is undeniable, and i dont think anyone said having a higher IQ makes yu vote for democrats, they are probably just more informed on certain issues and know there are places outside of thier little state.
The average IQ is 100, having one at 70 is basically at retardation level.
