Wow,
I'm not putting this behind a cut, because it's just too important to hide away...

Very interesting. Also, note that most of states in the "some red-some blue" area were the swing states.

Actually, they listed em alphabetically to be fair when the sorted item (Average IQ) was the same. If they'd wanted to play with the listing, they could have had all of the blues at the top, with only one red separating them (move Virginia down one to the bottom of the 100's, and Michigan and Oregon to the top of the 99's).

Someone posted a link to this on Punknews.org. Good work, that's hilarious.

Oh yeah. Somebody spent some time figuring this one out... which is just great... =)

There's a lot I don't like about Wyoming but I find it difficult to believe that the average IQ here is 89. Especially if you center a bell curve on 89 and look at how high a % of people in Wyoming would then be mentally retarded.

Well... to be fair, they didn't say this was a statistically distributed average, and they also didn't say much about what the subject batch was, etc... I mean, they could have polled candidates at a mental hospital and tweaked the numbers to their liking. Still, the fact that these numbers came from a pre-election survey and come out like this IS rather amusing...

Even if it was pre-election I think they tweaked it. The states that went for Bush or Kerry were almost the same as the states that went for Bush or Gore in 2000 so it would have been easy to guess which ones would give you a result making the states that voted for Bush look bad.

Agreed. And I have no problem with that at all... =)

emeraldboy has been trying to get me to move to Amsterdam and get hitched... something about how he'll buy me boys. I dunno.

And yes, Massachusetts boys are hot. =)
