This doesn't really prove anything. The liberal states just tend to value education more than conservatives. it has more to do with the culture of that particular state. In red states, hard work and honesty is valued much more than "intellect". Although a good education does in fact take a lot of hard work.
This only further verifies the belief that college campuses have a very progressive indoctrination. I'm a junior at a university and sometimes i feel like there is liberal influence all around me, all the time.
I grew up in Maryland by the way

while this is for the most part accurate, the fact that it is purely based on percentage with a degree is somewhat arbitrary. There is actually a well accredited formula that better calculates this statistic.

Well I'm not sure about the other states, but Massachusetts certainly has the best education system in the country, both in colleges and elementary/secondary schools. The Public school system is awesome, and a lot of them compete heavily with private schools academically. College wise, we have Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and BC, though ill admit college is more about what you do with it. Either way, MA ****** rules

The children might be lacking but the adults weren't when they were in school.

It's just that they don't push us enough, except for that one class, that only assigns busy work.

Yeah, because those degrees in art mean you are intelligent.... How about looking at the actual people that voted instead of grouping a whole state together.

User avatar #306 to #303 - bgbba (11/11/2012) [-]
Well, perhaps that just means that the liberals are right in many points. Thus why Fox lies so often...
User avatar #309 to #306 - buttgauges (11/11/2012) [-]
Lol oh you, stahp it
User avatar #276 to #259 - graphically (11/11/2012) [-]
You did't read the entirety of the small text did you?
User avatar #278 to #276 - buttgauges (11/11/2012) [-]
It is provided by Fox and yes I see the rest of the text. But under normal circumstances if this was content that slammed liberals, I guarantee you people would be saying "Oh it's fox news ******* bias ******** ". It doesn't matter how "legit" it actually is. It's from Fox. FOX = BADDDD
User avatar #296 to #278 - graphically (11/11/2012) [-]
"based on education data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey."

U.S. Census seems pretty legit to me, as a independent voter, only thing that matters is that the facts are straight, not which side it supports more.
User avatar #308 to #296 - buttgauges (11/11/2012) [-]
Plus you say you are an independent and if that is the case you do not side with liberals nor conservatives so my post is not directed at you. It is directed at liberals. :P
User avatar #316 to #308 - graphically (11/11/2012) [-]
Yeah but I've never been too big on the whole party stereotyping thing.
User avatar #302 to #296 - buttgauges (11/11/2012) [-]
You didn't read the entirety of my response to you, did you?
I said it doesn't matter how legitimate the source is (the U.S. Census Bureau) people will normally take any chance they get to hop on the hate train on Fox if it is against liberals.

But in this case it supports their cause so they take results given by Fox with positive attitudes.
User avatar #311 to #302 - graphically (11/11/2012) [-]
The text is pretty small when zoomed out. I don't think most people even realized that fox news is responsible for digging up the data.

Fox news has a tendency to bend the truth towards the right though, personally, I haven't seen much unwarranted backlash towards their journalism when they have their facts straight and cited.

Also, knowing Fox news, they just compiled the information from the Census of which states had the highest education, and weren't the ones to associate them with which candidate each state sided with. It just seems incredibly out of character.
User avatar #314 to #311 - buttgauges (11/11/2012) [-]
Well yeah, Fox openly says that it bends towards the right. I don't take everything they say as true, but I still respect them for not trying to hide their agenda like most media stations.

And you're right, educated people don't. But this is funnyjunk filled with idiots.
User avatar #318 to #314 - graphically (11/11/2012) [-]
They keep me preoccupied though

Romney was the governor of Massachusetts and is considered to be the one responsible for it's great education record.

That doesn't make the people that voted for Romney any less stupid.

sooo pennsylvania i guess is in the middle there somewhere.... not bad i guess
User avatar #251 - Jackimole (11/11/2012) [-]
There are MANY more colleges on the east and west coast than there are in the central US. People who went to college get exposed to the liberalness of the area, and thus have more liberal politics. Then they stay there, where many of the jobs are.

TLDR: Picture is misleading.

Also, good on you MA.
