Mike Huckabee, Frank White, and Winthrop Rockefeller are the only 3 Arkansas Republican governors since 1874 compared to 38 Democratic governors since then.

So, basically, you have a bunch of red state dumbasses who were disillusioned enough with their GOP candidates to cross party lines.

How sad is that for you?

I found it interesting that they link to another slide show of "10 Drunkest States" and New Hampshire leads, followed by Washington D.C. I'm not surprised by DC. One need only look at our government to be able to figure that out. But New Hampshire, I don't get. Of course, it might just be that so many political candidates spend so much time up there that it skews New Hampshire's numbers. It's all the DC drunks that are going up there and messing up their stats.

As far as "Dumbest States" goes, they're all going to be a lot dumber in a few decades. America gets dumber and dumber every year. One need only sit in front of a TV for a few hours, or go to a movie, to see that. Totalitarianism doesn't work with an educated populace.

The article uses "Median Household Income" as a contributing factor.

In many of the states listed you can buy a quality home for one third the price of the average home on the east or west coast and live quite well on half of the income required elsewhere.

The price of real estate is largely driven by income level. The reason real estate is less expensive in those places you mention is because of the large concentration of lower skilled and lower educated workers.

Do you think it would be fair to use household income as a benchmark for intelligence in a family where both husband and wife are teachers?

No, of course not. But we're not comparing individual examples here, we're comparing entire states. Connecticut has a high per capita income because a lot of highly educated professionals who work in high paying jobs live there. Therefore, real estate is considerably more expensive in Connecticut than it is in, say, Mississippi where there isn't nearly as high of a concentration of highly educated people working in high paying jobs. See how that works? We could make a similar comparison between Virginia and Alabama. And Maryland vs. West Virginia. And so on. I'm not expressing an opinion here, Pony. I'm stating facts.

Doesn't take much to be a repub nowadays, you just have to parrot such words as : "mooslim", Liburl", Soshalist", Freedum" and of course "No"...

It doesn't worry you that the aforementioned dumbasses are increasingly crossing party lines there as well?

so according to your facts, stupid people vote republican and smart people vote democrat. facts also say stupid people make less money while smart people make more money.

however, in the US, household income of <50k (stupid people) makes up 71% of the population and household income of >50k (smart people) makes up the other 29%. How is it that democrats win elections when clearly republicans outnumber democrats? I can even skew the number further because a household income of 50-60k is still considered poor.

and i thought the whole premise behind democrats is that republicans were for the rich trying to oppress the poor.

in one hand, you tell me rich are democrats because they are smart, poor are republicans because they are stupid, yet republicans are for the rich and try to keep the poor down. so the poor are trying to keep themselves down. makes sense.

My post doesn't state any such thing. Go back and read it again, and then let me know if you need me to try to explain it. I'm happy to do it.

Repubs do vote against their own interests. Hence them not being too bright. The republican mantra is to tell people that someone is always trying to take something from them. And if you vote dem,then taxes will increase,terrorists will invade us and gays will run amok.

My point is it's not a fair to use the income level in an area to measure the intelligence of people.

I was in Hot Spring Village Arkansas last month for a golf tournament. It's probably one of the most beautiful gated retirement areas in the country. There are seven beautiful golf courses and numerous fishing lakes and excellent weather. A couple can retire on 100k a year and live like royalty and a lot of very smart people are doing just that. Try retiring on the east or west coast on a 100K ..... good luck.
