    Apparently, being a Republican MAKES you stupid:

    Belief in evolution among Republicans has dropped more than 10 percentage points since 2009, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.

    Pew found that 43 percent of Republicans said they believed humans and other living beings had evolved over time, down from 54 percent in 2009. More (48 percent) said they believed all living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.

    The percentages for Democrats and independents were considerably more stable: Democratic belief in evolution went from 64 percent in 2009 to 67 percent in 2013; independent belief dipped from 67 percent in 2009 to 65 percent in 2013.

    Among all American adults, 60 percent said they believe in evolution, according to Pew, and 33 percent do not.

    The poll surveyed 1,983 Americans ages 18 and older from March 21 to April 8.
    Who would have thought that an anti-science party line could have such a rapid and dramatic effect?

    I was wondering what percentage of Canadians believed in evolution so I did a quick Google:

    Sun News : Canadians believe in evolution, Americans not so much: Poll

    According to an Angus Reid poll, 61% of Canadians and 69% of Britons believe in Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Just 30% of Americans, however, share that view.

    No, there are plenty of stupid Democrats. But being a Democrat doesn't increase your native stupidity.

    Exactly. Republicans will believe any falsehood, as long as it's part of the party line. Thanks for providing yet another example.

    I would argue that being Republican doesn't make one stupid, but their pandering to religious extremists is driving all the moderates out of the party.

    Train left the station and you are still trying to buy a ticket. My comment was in response to what Brandon posted. To make it simple Brandon called the Carville information bullshit, I called the subject of this thread bullshit.

    You incorrectly attributed a quote. Do you not research anything before you post it here or do you just mindlessly regurgitate whatever dumb and inaccurate articles and images you can find online?

    Now, now, he does often link to serious research, but there is often a comprehension failure, or a desire to bend data to a position instead of letting it speak for itself.

    One of the latest examples.
