Another mainstream survey from another widely-respected, non-partisan polling firm has confirmed yet again that, contrary to everything we are told, it is Republicans who are more educated on the issues, more informed on current events and more open-minded, and Democratswho demonstrate persistent ignorance of the facts, narrow-minded intolerance and contradictory logic.
According to Pew Research, Republicans not only scored better on most of their questions on the issues, but by an average of 18 percentage points, while the few questions Democrats scored better on were only better by less than 5%. This is despite Republicans having fewer post-graduates.
The demographics questions also confirmed yet again that Republicans make up the most mainstream, Middle Class portion of the population, with solid educations and regular salaries, while the left is composed almost entirely of society’s outer-fringes: the extremely poor and uneducated, and extremely wealthy academics.
Other recent polls and studies also show that Democrats are more likely to “unfriend,” ban and/or otherwise try to silence anyone who disagrees with them on social media sites, and that they are willing to completely reverse their positions and abandon their own arguments to gain partisan power.
As Daily Caller explains:
A March 12 Pew study showed that Democrats are far more likely than conservatives to disconnect from people who disagree with them. ‘In all, 28% of liberals have blocked, unfriended, or hidden someone on SNS [social networking sites] because of one of these reasons, compared with 16% of conservatives and 14% of moderates,’ said the report, tiled ‘Social networking sites and politics.’
The report also noted that 11 percent of liberals, but only 4 percent of conservatives, deleted friends from their social networks after disagreeing with their politics.
A March Washington Post poll showed that Democrats were more willing to change their views about a subject to make their team look good. For example, in 2006, 73 percent of Democrats said the GOP-controlled White House could lower gas prices, but that number fell by more than half to 33 percent in 2012 once a Democrat was in the White House.
In contrast, the opinions of GOP supporters were more consistent. Their collective opinion shifted by only a third, according to the data. In 2006, 47 percent in believed the White House could influence gas prices. By 2012, that number had risen to 65 percent up 17 points compared to the Democrats’ 40 point shift.
Such polls, surveys and studies also consistently indicate that Mainstream America rejects the left on virtually every issue and sides with the Tea Party movement (which is also more educated) at every turn, hence the reason Tea Partiers are regularly crucified as bigots and dangerous extremists by the Non-Fox Media.
So, as it turns out, having a corrupt, biased news media that spoon-feeds blatantly partisan misinformation from Media Matters to the liberal herd while hysterically smearing all dissent against Democrats as mean-spirited right-wing racism…somehow manages to leave liberal voters ignorant, bigoted, irrational, and completely unable to handle intellectual confrontation. But remember, it’s the (far-more mainstream) FOX News viewers and Rush Limbaugh listeners who are being brainwashed, not the “pro-tolerance,” “pro-diversity” “realists” of the left.
Incidentally, being routinely trashed, lied about and vilified by the tantrum-throwing liberal fanatics who now control almost the entire flow of information in this country has the reverse effect on those who vote on actual principle (conservatives), making it easy for them to debate any opponent, no matter how adolescent, emotional or absurd.
