This thread is prompted by the current Twitter trend about the 'diploma divide" in the California recall and how much more pronounced it is compared to the original gubernatorial race only a few years ago.
But this is only a case of a trend being bolstered by new evidence. There are a ton of other studies and polling data that show how those with a college education skew Democratic while those without skew Republican. This transcends other divisions such as gender and it exacerbates it in cases of race.
- Why do uneducated people prefer the Republican party?
- What does it say about the Republican party that people who are educated are not Republican?
- How can the Democratic party appeal to the uneducated, or would they even want to?
- Is it good for democracy that one of the two major parties appeals to the uneducated?
